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.

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.

Bottle from a trade with Ericaís 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 youíll find the cranberries but the real nice touch is the citrus notes from lemon grass. Not bad, very drinkable.
