3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a translucent copper color with a finger of eggshell foam. Nose is what you would expect, pumpkin in a can, cinnamon spice a touch of grain. Palate follows the nose... pretty good balance of sweet and spice levels. Touch of bitterness and underlying beer flavor, nice to remember we are drinking beer here.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a slightly hazy amber with a foamy white head. Aroma is nutmeg cloves cinnamon and I guess some pumpkin. Flavor follows and is slightly bitter. Medium bodied. Drinkable but too many spices.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle thanks to Keir. Poured a cloudy orange/ mudbrown with a smaller to average sized frothy light beige head. Aroma started off with some nice spices, nutmeg, cinnamon and all-spice but then some vomit sneaks in there along with rotting pumpkin and bad dough. Medium body with average tight bubbly carbonation with a spicey finish that lingers. Flavor is more bready with lighter pumpkin spices, rotting fruits, touch of vomit again. Meh not great but maybe itís fading since I am rating it older.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at esbls. Light brown with some haze. No foam. An aroma of pumpkin and spices. Nutmeg. Cinnamon and nutmeg outshine the pumpkin in the flavor. Something like an Oktoberfest underneath. I like it but it can only go so far.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle via in-person STL trade. Pours a mostly clear bright orange color with a small fizzy white head that dissipates immediately. Aroma of celery salt, peppery and ginger-like spice, and veggies. The flavor is similar, along with some pale malts, faint sugar, and a muddled blend of spices. This smells and tastes similar to a Bloody Mary. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a spicy mouthfeel. I think the bottle was a year old; I need a fresh one to get a better sense of what itís supposed to be.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2013 The color of this beer is a hazy dark orange with a medium white head that fades fairly quickly to a ring, and the aroma blends strong currents of cinnamon and clove with a hint of pumpkin. The taste is slightly sweet and mildly sour, and the palate combines an average carbonation, thin and slick texture, medium body, and a long finish.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Big spice and pumpkin aroma. Flavor is more subdued; primarily spice. Okay, but not well-balanced. Itís like drinking a spice drop.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle, bonsuíd from tstockstrom (thanks Chuck), pours an opaque dark amber orange with a small beige head. Aroma is typical for a pumpkin ale, with nutmeg, cinnamon and pumpkin puree. Flavour matches accordingly, with the spices and puree being equally dominant. Very standard, drinkable pumpkin ale. But since Iím not a fan of this type of beer generally, I canít exactly say itís enjoyable. OK.
