3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: clear amber color, pours with a large beige head with nice density
Aroma: spicy and sweet, cinnamon, reminds me of Christmas
Taste: sweet, milk, pumpkin, maybe a hint of chocolate, some of that tartness they are talking about but it takes a very back seat
Palate: very frothy, heavier mouthfeel, minimal pumpkin aftertaste
Overall: very impressed with this beer, very nice subtle complexity, a great beer for when it cools down

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 there’s also the addition of some nutmeg, tart cranberry and some earthiness. The cranberry gets stronger as the beer warms. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it’s a bit slick and has moderate carbonation. It’s also easy to drink. I think it’s a good pumpkin ale overall, the addition of the cranberry puts a nice spin on it. I enjoyed it! $8.99 a 6-pack.

Bottle from a trade with Erica’s boy friend Chris. Pours orange copper with a tiny beige head and a pumpkin and spice aroma. There is a tangy caramel malt flavor with a spiced finish. The pumpkin and spice flavors are very light. (I had frozen this beer by accident)

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured a bit cloudy, copper color, with a minimal white head. Aroma is malty, pumpkin pie and spices. Taste is malty too, some pumpkin and spice, if you really look you’ll find the cranberries but the real nice touch is the citrus notes from lemon grass. Not bad, very drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
"I enjoyed this one. Lighter but flavorful and aromatic blend. Nose is mostly spices and lemongrass, cinnamon on the front. Odd combo but it begs for another whiff. Flavor the cranberry comes out as slightly sweet and tart, but the spices are still up front. Pumpkin is light. A welcome addition to the fall lineups."
