3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz. Bottle: Aroma of spices, nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, clove, light pepper, and light pumpkin. Aroma is over-spiced. Poured orange/amber in color with a medium-sized, dense, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Clear. Slightly sparkling. Flavor is lightly sweet and heavily spiced. Tastes of spices, nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, cloves, and a hint of pumpkin. Light to medium body. Slightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Spice, nutmeg, allspice, and clove finish is a tad dry. Way over-spiced.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Amber, a bit on the darker side, moderate foamy off-white head, decent lacing.   Big cinnamon and nutmeg nose.   For
some reason it reminds me of egg-nog a bit.   Perhaps its heavy on the nutmeg?   I do believe it is.   Flavor is like nut-meg
beer for me.   Weird, most beers I think of as Pumpkin beers, but this just reminds me of Egg-Nog beer.   I love Egg-Nog, so its no
surprise I do find this tasty.   Not as sweet as others, but remains fairly spicy from start to finish.   Body and mouthfeel are
moderate, nearly full.   Finish does have a slight astringent bite to it, very very subtle tho.   Nutmeg lingers for quite a while.
Decent, even if it reminds me almost more of Christmas than the Autumn season.   Thanks Chris for yet another good brew!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured into a tulip.
Color is a bright peach-orange color that is mostly transparent with a bit of light haze. Single-finger white head falls down into a bit of light lacing and a few large carbonation bubbles. Nose is some bright and strong pumpkin spice notes along with a strong nose of cinnamon and some sweet apple.
Taste is Apple Jacks with some cinnamon and green apple components plus a bit of nutmeg and some sweet pumpkin pie. Light sweetness. Light to medium body with low amounts of carbonation. Pretty sweet and slightly cloying. Not terrible, but a bit too sweet and slightly gimmicky.
Serving type: bottle

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a mostly translucent orange/amber with a medium frothy/bubbly off white head that left some lacing. Aroma of...you got it...Pumpkin Pie spices. A little heavy on the nutmeg and vanilla. Getting some cinnamon in there, but the nutmeg is really winning out. Maybe also some brown sugar, caramel and nuts. The flavor, pretty much a match of the aroma. A decent Pumpkin Ale with a solid label.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Nose is dominated by sweet, overly strong pumpkin pie spice. Way overdone. Clear bright orange body with a large creamy beige head. Watery body is filled with spice but here are some nice earthy undertones and sparkling vanilla accents. Mildly bittersweet. Hard to find a good swig of punkin juice, but thisíll do.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured an orangey color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of cinnamon and cloves is quite strong with light pumpkin notes. Taste is also a nice mix between some strong notes of cinnamon and cloves with light pumpkin and some semi-sweet caramelized malt. Body is average with good carbonation. Well brewed with just about right amount of spices.

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark caramel-amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma was strong nutmeg and cinnamon. The flavor was bitter nutmeg and cinnamon and had a light dry malty undertone and a hint of hut. The finish was long and spicy. Nicely done.
