La bonne bière à la citrouille c’est le slogan dans l’ensemble c’est vrai: une belle apparence une mousse généreuse une arôme facilement identifiable mais au goût c’est là que ça se gâche trop d’épices

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.341 bottle. Clear, light brown color and virtually no head. Heavy aroma of pumpkin and spices; virtually nothing more is detectable apart from a faint, malty scent. Taste is sweet, spicy, full of pumpkin of course - appears somewhat chemical and artificial. Medium body, slick texture, and average carbonation. Finish is roughly the same but more authentic than the rest. Overall a pleasant flavored beer but nothing out of the ordinary.

This pumpkin potion is another run-of-the-mill goblin, not offensive nor provocative. It’s almost so middling that I don’t even know what to say about it. It tastes like you would expect, pumpkin-piesque with very little pumpkin and a hint of biscuity beeriness. The colour is nice but a effervescent body, almost cider-like, makes the head piss off soon as. Whatever, they got me to drink it. Damn my suckery towards all things pumpkinized.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: clear medium amber with one finger of rocky light tan head, good retention and patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: roasted pumpkin, typical pumpkin spices, caramel. (6/10) Taste: moderate-low sweet, mild bitter. (6/10) Medium-light body tending to watery, moderate carbonation, moderate duration finish. (3/5)
Ok, fine, it’s October, so I can officially start on the pumpkin ales. And this isn’t bad: unlike so many "pumpkin" ales that are really just sweet and spices with little or no real pumpkin, this one actually leads out with actual pumpkin flavour. Some spices eventually come to the fore, but it never gets sweet and sickly as is so common with the style. Solid. (12/20)

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a thin head on a clear dark straw body.
The aroma is roasted pumpkin. Nice.
The taste is malty with pumpkin flavor, but nicely balanced.
The texture is softer.
A pretty good pumpkin beer.

This beer took me by surprise! I’m usually not much of a Pumpkin beer drinker but it was all my friend had at the time. Glad he didn’t have anything else! Amber in color, malt forward, smooth body. Spice are present but not overwhelming. Delicious Pumpkin beer for a non-pumpkin beer drinker!

Why doesn’t ratebeer have a category for pumpkin beers? Drank from a bottle. Somewhat strong pumpkin aroma. Taste is nicely spiced with just the right amount of pumpkin flavor. Good brew.
