3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sounds great on paper but somehow adds up to less than the sum of its parts. Nice spices but I really didn’t get much pumpkin or cranberry.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Poured nice dark amber. Has a slight pumpkin smell to it. First taste noticed is tartness but really mild tart. Can’t really taste either cranberry or pumpkin.
Would not get this one again.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
First thing I noticed was the tartness + the spice of any other pumpkin ale. It poured an amber color with a light/minimal head. Crisp, kinda like a lightly carbonated cranberry drink with a touch if spice. Overall a okay beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 ounce bottle. Bright amber orange color topped by a small bubbly beige head. Light biscuit malt aroma with subtle notes of nutmeg and cinnamon. Crisp, dry toasted malt flavor with notes of nutmeg, cinnamon and allspice. Slight tartness from the cranberry juice shows up in the finish. Overall, just another pumpkin spiced ale. Nothing special.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle with a best before of 22Dec13. Pours with a lightly hazed orange hued body with a medium sized and somewhat retentive off-white head. Aromas are of lightly biscuity malt, slight pumpkin pie spice (nutmeg standing out the most), lightly fruity, tart, and tannic. Low ester. Flavors are medium malty (biscuity, wonder bread), dry, lightly tart, medium pie spices with a slight eugenol numbness. Somewhat layered malt character and pretty clean fermentation wise. Light tannin in the finish. Moderate to lightly high carbonation, lower bodied. Drinkable, but not super interesting.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle... Poured amber/orange with a moderate beige head. Spiced aroma. Almost reminded me of Asian spiced cuisine like Thai and Viatnamese. Spice notes followed through in the flavor. A little drying. Some sweet malted sugars. Even with all the spices pumpkin squash notes were still evident. Some nutmeg and allspice cameo through in the finish.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
Different from many of the pumpkin beers out. The touch of cranberry is a surprise and unsettling at first sip, but I like the balance and edge it gives the beer. Very refreshing for the style.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle poured into my Elysian Night Owl Pumpkin tulip glass. Pours a clear orange copper color With a medium to thin white head that lraves light lacing. Smells of pumpkin, spices, lemongrass, and cinnamon. Tastes of all the same things in the smell but with a lingering cranberry/lemongrass tartness in the backend. Mouthfeel is meduim bodied with light carbonation and a slightly dry finish. I was really excited when I saw this. I ended up being sort of let down. Not bad but could have been done much better and had more carbonation. It also needed a little more pumpkin and spice flavors. I Might pick up a 6 pack if its the right price but won’t be seeking it out again.

A watered down sweet pumpkin flavour. Not one of favourite pumpkin style beers.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light amber pour. Aroma is spice and light vegetal notes. Spices are more subtle than I expected. Body has a bit of tartness, but maybe that’s just my mind playing tricks on me expecting cranberry flavours. Another mediocre pumpkin beer.
