3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a murky red-orange-caramel with a small foamy white head that left good lacing. The aroma was nutmeg, cinnamon and a hint of berry. The flavor was sweet and malty with cinnamon, nutmeg and a bit of red fruits. Medium length finish. Medium body. Solid.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a mostly clear copper orange color and topped by a small head of off white foam that quickly recedes to a thin film. The aroma shows notes of pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg spices and a caramel malt backbone. Hints of cranberry juice come through on the back end as well. The flavor follows with the pumpkin juice and pie spices up front to go with a big dose of cinnamon and sweet cranberry juice. The cranberry juice is very noticeable in the flavor. Medium bodied but a touch thin with balanced carbonation that leads to a lengthy cinnamon spice finish. Decent pumpkin beer and interesting with the cranberry juice, but still overly spiced for my tastes.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Good label and yoked bottle. Foggy apricot bronze, almond head. Soft, mellow spicy, moderately sweet aroma, not overpowering. Starchy mouth, spice astringency, dry, nutmeg bitterness. Suitable for pork marinade, glad I only bought one. An inauspicious start to the 2015 rotten-squash-in-yer-brewski season... not horrid just not something I want. ABC Liquors, Bull Run.

12oz bottle...hazy orange pour with a sweet fruity nose the taste is full of pumpkin, cinnamon, and allspice. The cranberry lends an agreeable tartness that compliments the sweetness well. Spicy/bittersweet finish. Good stuff.

Non descript head which fell flat almost immediately. Cloudy orange body. Ever so slight sour aroma. Flavors of cinnamon and clove. Aftertaste is bitter as well. Not very pumpkin-y at all.

Very unique with the unexpected taste of cranberry. I really like the bitter bite it adds. The cranberry bite is front and center, but the pumpkin and spice hangs around in the back for a good finish. I really like this one.

Some malt and a good baked pumpkin flavor, but a little thin. There is some spice. I didn’t notice the cranberry. Drank from a bottle.
