3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours an orange body with a thin off white head, that dissipates to nothing quickly. Spicy cinnamon notes, spicy with hints of ginger and a light pumpkin tone. Light ginger bite, with some allspice notes. I like it even though it finishes a bit like anise, and thin.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beautiful looking beer , coppery bright brown with a half inch pillowy cap. Cinnamon, clove and other spices come shining through. I most defiantly smell the pumpkin pie but no real raw pumpkin presence. Mmmmmm……cream cheese icing. Malty tasting with lots of spice the clove comes through stronger then cinnamon. There are hints of bitter in the finish. My wife claims to taste ginger snap and now that’s all I taste. This is by far the best pumpkin beer I’ve ever had.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Fitered amber-brown color, respectable creamy head. The pumpkin pie spice aroma is a little subdued, but still discernable. Medium bodied and malty, with some crisp astringent hop and spice notes upfront before fading into sweet maltiness. A touch too grassy and soapy in the bitterness, doesnt quite match or compement the pumpkin pie spiciness in my opinion. OK, tame pumpkin beer.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Pours dark orange with a rapidily dissipating off-white head. Lots of carbonation bubbles. Aroma is of pumpkin, spice, whipped topping, and malt. Smells like a sweet piece of pumpkin pie, but not much else. Taste starts of with a big amount of pumpkin and spice. As far as pumpkin in beer goes, this one has it down pretty damn well. Has a very muted, bready malt backbone. Mouthfeel is very carbonated, but creamy. Lingering taste of spice and breadiness. A one-note beer, but it is damn tasty.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
11.5oz bottle pours clear filtered copper with a small white head with poor retention. Aroma is like every other pumpkin beer known to man. Okay slightly better maybe but not really. Flavor is cinnamon and mild maltiness though the spice level is quite low. Super clean. This is very drinkable. Not super good in the pumpkin department or the uniqueness. No more pumpkin beers please unless you’re going to offer something different.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
341 ml bottle courtesy of a trtade with Boutip. Pours a mostly clear coppery orange with a large linen white head that lingered until mid-glass and left a few large patches of foam. Pleasant aroma of pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg. The flavor is pumpkin, wax beans, cinnamon and nutmeg and tastes a bit watered down. Light bodied. An ok pumpkin beer.
