4 oz cask pour at Mad Fox, freshly tapped right after I ordered it! Clear light golden brown with off-white head. Aromas of spices and pumpkin. Tastes of big pumpkins, spices, light herbs, cinnamon and nutmeg. Medium body with a dry finish. Medium carbonation. Might be the best batch they’ve brewed of this, pumpkin flavors were very nice.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft sampler at the brewpub. Pours a dark copper with small offwhite head.Lots of seasonal spices with definite pumpkin presence. I am admittedly not a big fan of most pumpkin beers, and Punkinator did not stand out in any positive way for me. Taste is a bit muddled and too much spice.

Nice caramel coloring with little head. Excellent mix of pumpkin spices that doesn’t overpower the beer like a lot of other pumpkin brews seem to do. Well done

1.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Draft. Poured a hazy orange with a super thin white head. Not a good example of a pumpkin beer. The pie spices totally overwhelmed the other flavors, especially since it was a thin beer. Needed to highlight the pumpkin richness more. Cloyingly sweet.
