3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear reddish amber with a medium head that dissipates quickly. Sweet aroma with a hint of pumpkin and a metallic tinge. Flavor is very pumpkiny, with a lot of ginger, and a hint of other spices. A bit too sugary sweet, without a lot of malt complexity. Not untasty, but a bit one-dimensional.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle from Wegmanís, West Seneca, NY. An attractive reddish amber colour with a fading off-white head; aroma of pumpkin, nutmeg and cloves; and a taste to match, with a sweet caramel malt body; and a dry warmth from the spices to finish. Iím not a great fan of pumpkin beers, but this one is a reasonable example.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Purchased in Maine on my trip there, in their mixed pack. Pours a deep amber colour with a white head. Mild pumpkin with hints of spices. Stronger taste of the aromas. Light vanilla finish. A pretty good pumpkin beer that is more in the heavy side.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance has a hazy orange/brown body that leaves a half finger white head. Some light slowly moving carbonation is seen rising with some light lacing around the sides of the glass.
The smell centers around the obvious pumpkin and brings in a nice combination of nutmeg and cinnamon.
The taste is basically the same.
The palate sits about a medium, fairly mellow, sessionable, ginger/pumpkin aftertaste, slight bitter finish.
Overall, in my opinion, one of the better pumpkins out there from what Iíve had.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Orange clear with a shade of brown. From a bottle there is not much co2. Mild flavors with some punky spices in there.Not bad but dows have a slight cloying effect on the palate. Finish is a little medicinal in nature.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear amber/dark amber with a medium off white head. Aroma is canned pumpkin pie filling. Flavor is earthy and mineraly...not a ton of flavor...reminiscent of mineral water with some roasty/earthy notes and spice towards the end. Mouthfeel is light/medium and lively with a dry muddled spice/earthy/faint roasty finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours clear and bright copper with a one inch frothy off-white head that left lots of sticky lacing. The nose is really spicy and sweet with heavy cinnamon, nutmeg, and a touch of ginger. Some nice pumpkin meat as well. The flavor is even heavier on the sweetness than the aroma suggested. Still a little heavier on the spicing than Iíd like though, which still lose out to the residual sugar. Lingering biting finish of cinnamon and ginger. Medium bodied, rather heavy on the palate, with soft fizzy carbonation. The best thing about this one was the way it looked. I kinda went down hill from there.
