3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Hazy dark amber color, 1" ivory head, waves and strips of lace. Taste is caramel malt that turns to pumpkin and minimal s[ice on the swallow, moving to a barely bittered finish (the pumpkin provides some bittering). A drinkable brew, but I’d grow tired of it before I finished the six-pack. Thank God for singles.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Darker amber/brown brew with very nice off white head. Pleasant aroma of light pumpkin spice and light caramel. Taste is sweetly caramel up front and into the middle, some emerging pumpkin spice in the middle and then in the end. LIght on the spice which is good. This actually seems to have some melon-ish fruity taste from pumpkins which is very enjoyable. Good palate. Overall a really good pumpkin brew.

Enjoyably robust ale with nice red highlights in the pour. Yeast, malt, caramel, English hops (?), something earthy that could be pumpkin. Definitely not much added spice. A fine ale, and very different from your average pumpkin brew (there seem to be more of them each autumn).

12 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. The beer is a hazy amber color with a white head of foam. The aroma has pumpkin pie with a strong emphasis on the nutmeg. The taste is more of just a slightly spiced sweetness. Low bitterness. Medium body and lower to medium carbonation.

Draught @ Waterfront Ale House. Copper red with small frothy white head, somewhat flat pumpkin aroma, medium carbonation, bitter taste, long finish. Not really very insiring as a pumpkin beer.

Tastes and looks like nearly every other pumpkin ale out there. That doesn’t make it bad, but it certainly doesn’t make it good. Sweet, pumpkin pie spices, soft carbonation. So tired of this style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Hazy darker orange color. Good thin off-white head, leaving nice ridges of lace. Medium body. Lighter, kind of crisp carbonation. Lighter to medium body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter to moderate carbonation. Mild dry finish. Nice bit of actual pumpkin flavor here, some mild spiciness but no roughness from that, nice balance. Ginger seems to add a nice snap to it. Good moderate hop bitterness, lighter sweet. Crisp, refreshing, easy-drinking balanced pumpkin beer. Nice to enjoy with my lunch sandwich.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Harvest Market, Bedford NH. Aroma is caramel, bready malt backbone with pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, mild clove. Appearance is hazy orange-brown with nice sparkle and minimal off-white head, with minimal lacing. Taste is like aroma, though not as strong. Palate is medium bodied with creamy texture, soft carbonation and mild bitter finish. Overall, pretty standard for the type, but isn’t overly sweet.
