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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

Pours a hazy dark copper from the bottle. Smells of nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon, in that order. Flavor is of pumpkin, with some sweetness along with the spices. Okay pumpkin ale.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pour is nice. Short tan head. Orange amber color. Some lacing is present. The aroma is that creamy pumpkin pie aroma. Cinnamon and nutmeg is present but subdued. As the beer warms these spices come to the front. The taste is mildly bitter but not much going on. The brew finishes cleanly.
