3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured right from the fermenter on tour at the brewpub. Pours a hazy orange with some frothy white head. Big, spicy nose, nutmeg, ginger, clove, root veg. Flavor has a big zip from the ginger, almost a wasabi like zing to it, after that fades you get the sweetness, carrot, banana bread, some yeast. Medium bodied, zippy finish.

Draught taster served at Smoke and Barrel in Washington. Decent pumpkin attempt, a little light on the body. Sort of had a tea-like quality to it

On draft at the brewery. Pours a cloudy gold with a white head. Aroma of allspice and cloves. Pumpkin pie spices dominate the flavor.

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.
