3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Maui Brewing in Kihei.
Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing.
Body is medium amber.
Aroma is lightly malty (caramel, cookie), with notes of nutmeg, clove, cinnamon, etc.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately to heavily bitter, spicy.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
The spices aren’t tooooo overdone, but they are certainly assertive, perhaps mostly in the aftertaste. A reasonable, drinkable version.

On tap at the Brewpub. Poured a Copper/Orange. Didn’t have as strong a aroma as some Pumpkin Ale’s. Nice smmooth taste, clean finish with flavors or pumkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg in the finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From notes, had at Obriens for SDBW. Pours deep copper brown with a nice white head. Nose is heavy spices, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves to name a few with of course, some yammy pumpkin overtones. Taste is real sweet, with some bitter and a nice little hint of tartness. Mouthfeel is crisp and clean, with a medium body and a long finish. Pleasantly surprised with this one.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sweet and spicy on the nose. Same in the mouth with candy sweetness. Mulled style. A little sickly but fun and warming. Weird to find on Maui.
