1.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Smells like pumpkin pie. Looks Great! But, it just tastes like cinnamon water. It is so thin with almost 0 other flavor! I donít turn down beers often, but this one is going right down the drain.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours amber with a sparse amount of carbonation. Smells strongly of pumpkin pie spice (a little too much so). Tastes of sweet malt and spicy with some peppery undertones. I like my pumpkin beers on the spicy side, but this one is a bit overdone.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Hugely spicy aroma. Cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin. Pours copper with some amber highlights. Flavor is spicy initially, loses a bit in the middle, then kicks you in the ass with some massive spice on the finish. Medium bodied. Damn... this oneís gonna give me heartburn.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Medium-bubbly white head. Aroma of spices. Color is orangish. Flavor starts of slow in front, nice malty tones, then your hit with HUGE pumpkin flavors. Spices, cinnamon, nutmeg. My first thought was pumpkin cake with whipped cream. Aftertaste was nicely meshed together, it was a perfect end to a nice fall friday evening

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Real good. Draft- enjoyed this flavor explosion very much. Overspiced, and in your face, which I enjoy in a good pumpkin beer. Has a flavor very similiar to the ST Pumpking, but I canít quite place it. enjoyable for sure.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Body is an autumnal mix of orange and brown and supports a medium sized tan head. Aromas are pie spices and pumpkin (maybe a bit of dishsoap, too). Flavor starts off a little malty and then heads into a very spicy finish. Cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg mingle with the pumpkin flavoring and create a fairly nice aftertaste. Every now and then it seems a little watery and every now and then there is a little bit of a soapy aftertaste... apart from these two minor snags it is an interesting and well done pumpkin beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Orange body, small whitish head, spicy nose. More spice than pumpkin (or beer). Tasty, not the best Iíve had by far.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
What an aroma of cloves, anisette and licorice, quite anesthetizing. Color is orange/ruby and clear. Has a small off white head. Wow, lots of pumpkin spice in this brew, more than any other Iíve tried. Certainly tries to imitate the fall pumpkin feeling. May be overdone on the spices. Yes, if you are looking for something that is like pumpkin pie without the sugar, you got it. But isnít sweetness the major portion of a pumpkin pie? Barely any carbonation on the palate and what does exist is slight champagne creaminess. Finish is pumpkin spice all the way, donít know if I can take more than two of these at a time. No bitterness detected but the spice is quite in your face.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The aroma of this beer is the best of any of the pumpkins hands down. Strong alcohol and spices that would be the equivelant of snorting a line of pumpkin pie mix. Pour was a clear medium brown with a 1 finger white head. Taste was not too strong. Heavy carbonation drowned out any taste, but the heavy pumpkin aroma floats up through the nostrils. Nice.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle (low fill - probably 8 oz in there) from Dansting. Pour is brown, red, golden with a very thin white head. Aroma is BIG pumpkin spice, cinnamon and ginger. Smelled very much like a slice of pumpkin pie - more so than any Pumpkin beer I have had in the past. Taste is also a bunch of pumpkin pie, really interesting taste. I even thought I picked up some whipped cream in there. Finish is clean, though a touch metallic. Somewhat watery palate, though palate picked up as it warmed. Overall an interesting beer, and one of the better Pumpkin beers I have had.
