4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
2008-12-05. Orange amber body with a modest off-white head. (3+) Pleasant aroma of spice, cinnamon mostly, nutmeg? (8+) Sweet flavour, spice with a solid sweet malt base. Spice is a bit dominating, but tasty. Cinnamon, sweet malt, very light kiss of caramel undertones, melange of spices. Cinnamon is dominant. (8+) Average plus palate. (3+) Could be a bit much in quantity but the rich malt base is like what I remember from last years Pumking. Rather good. Criminally under rated if its always as good as this pint was! But then perhaps it just caught me at the right time. /<i>On tap at Coles, Buffalo</i>

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
<i>Draught at Coles, Buffalo, NY.</i> Pours a clear deep orange with a spare diminishing white head. Lovely aroma of pumpkin, spices and even some eggnog. Flavour: Wow, I love it! Pumpkin and spices and with a light bitter finish. Good body for the style. Quite possibly the best beer I’ve had from Michigan Brewing, this is damn good stuff.

27/III/2012 - 355ml bottle @ home - BB: n/a (2012-292) Thanks to Cory and kelly for the bottle!
Little cloudy deep orange beer, big irregular creamy head, adhesive, pretty stable. Aroma: lots of cloves, cinnamon, some ginger, more cloves, bit sugary, although that last could be my mind playing tricks on me with all of these pastry aromas. MF: soft carbon, light to medium body. Taste: lots of spices, mainly cinnamon and cloves, orange peel, gingerbread. Aftertaste: bitter, lots of spices, more cloves and cinnamon, bitter, little metallic, green banana.

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.
