2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On draught at Max Lager’s on P-Tree. Slightly hazy and dark orange in colour. About two fingers worth of crown with an aroma rich in nutmeg, cloves, and a hint of cinnamon. Medium body, verging towards the lighter side. Extremely sweet, much like drinking sugar water enhanced with herbs. A little spicy like black pepper and a light experience of pumpkin. Other spice notes are greater in the aroma than in the palate. Too sweet for me.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A light, somewhat non-descript aroma, though it suggested brown sugar at times. Cloudy, tea orange-brown. A very unusual flavor - vegetable, perhaps black pepper, perhaps cactus, faint twinges of lemon or something. Medium tangy, not very sweet. Medium light body. Pointless and craftless.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This was about the same color as their Oktoberfest. Both were a medium dark stained-wood-like brown. The only difference was the the P.D.W. was lightly cloudy (cloudier than hazy, but not full-on opaque). The head was good but it could have been better. I had a full pint of this followed by a few sips off of my wife's sample glass and then the last third of her pint. The first time around I hardly noticed any pumpkin or spice at all. The last times I started picking up more spice and a little of the pumpkin. This is definitely a reserved pumpkin beer. I'd actually say it was a Dunkel Weizen first (it was nicely wheaty, with a good bit of clove as the main components of the flavor and aroma) with the pumpkin and spice just there as a subtle balanced addition to the beer. Very interesting and pretty tasty.
