3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Clear brownish amber brew, slightly tan head, aroma of nutmeg, cinnamon and other pumpkin spices. Taste is sweetish malty at the start with upfront fruity tartness - maybe some pumpkin sweetness in there - spice emerging in the middle and at the end mostly just the tart fruitiness. The tartness really is there form start to finish. It manages to be pumpkin and spice while still being refreshing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This happens to be one of my favorite pumpkin beers. It is an filtered brew with a subtle pumpkin flavor that is not overly sweet, spicy or obscure. The beer has a great appearance with a nice lacing and head. The flavor does have a slight sour finish which is not as appealing to the palate, but other than that one issue, the beer is very tasty. I can drink several of these without a problem.

amber color; pumpkin pie aroma - although not as overwhelmng as most pumpkin beers; flavor is pretty much pumpkin pie: pumpkin with notes of cinnamon and nutmeg; I didnít detect the cranberry juice; still not a fan of pumpkin beers, but not bad

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz 2014 bottle with a BB date stamp of Jan. 2015.
Quite a bit more spicing in the flavor than I get in the aroma. I see this has lemongrass and cranberries too -- these may create the cloudy aromatics. The odd combinations works well in tasting but, with some tartness and lemongrass, this is not your standard pumpkin ale.
Lively, medium-high carbonation befitting the light body.
O: Pleaseant and intersting beer: interesting for both the unusual flavor profile and the mismatch between aroma and flavor.

Pours slightly cloudy, medium orange, finger or so creamy of white head, good amount of lacing. Aroma sweet spice, fruity, allspice, slight pumpkin and cinnamon, can definitely detect sweet cranberry. Taste sweet, fruity, slightly tart cranberry, cinnamon and allspice, very faint pumpkin and doughy malt. Mouthfeel medium body, lower carbonation, sweet finish. Overall tasty beer, interesting take, drinks like a cider.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle, enjoy by 18 JAN 15 on label (drank on September 13th). Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a slightly hazy orange color with about an inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both decent enough. The brew smells like pumpkin, clove, and cinnamon. Taste is similar to the aroma, but thereís also the addition of some nutmeg, tart cranberry and some earthiness. The cranberry gets stronger as the beer warms. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, itís a bit slick and has moderate carbonation. Itís also easy to drink. I think itís a good pumpkin ale overall, the addition of the cranberry puts a nice spin on it. I enjoyed it! $8.99 a 6-pack.
