3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Decent pumpkin beer. Aroma was all pumpkin pie spice (heavy on the cinnamon and ginger). Pour was beautiful. Thick deep dark gold (light brown) in the middle then lightens as it goes outward with (surprise!) some sediment floating in there! One finger off white head. Taste was thick and chewy. There was a lot of roasted malt in this beer. The spices are not as heavy in the flavor but play nicely with that roastiness. Medium to light carbonation. Sweet pumpkin pie finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. bottles from Gary’s beverage, Portsmouth, NH. One year old bottle store in my cellar. Dark amber with light bubbly head that provided lacing. Nose is light graham cracker and a strong amount of pumpkin. Flavor of squash, faint herbal and malty notes with ginger and nutmeg in the finish. Full in body with a light effervescent mouthfeel. Nice job here.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The aroma is pumpkin pie spices, brown sugar, light booze, pumpkin. The appearance is relatively clear deep amber, off-white head. The flavor is like the aroma, pie spices, caramel, pumpkin. Boozy. The finish is light booze, pine, spices. Medium/thick in body, creamy mouthfeel. The booze comes through too much, especially considering it’s only 8%. Still, pretty enjoyable overall.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is not a pumpkin pie type of beer thank goodness. It’s only September first. Nice malt aroma from an amber pour with a very thin head. A bit of the pumpkin comes through in the taste and the spices come out in the after taste. Not bad.
