3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Was handed a bottle of this over the weekend and asked for my thoughts on it by a local distributor. Aroma is definitely pumpkiny but not overpowering. The same can be said for the flavor where more spice comes out including some true pumpkin in it. Standard variety of pie spices to boot with a hoppier than expected finish. I wouldn’t buy a case but I’ll take a freebie.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium, poorly retained, ivory head, with moderate lacing, over a very slightly hazy dark amber (SRM 13) body.....nose is cinnamon, nutmeg, slight pumpkin, light cereal, no hops, balance to the spices.....taste is cinnamon, nutmeg, hints of pumpkin, light cereal malts, dry throughout, mild hop/spice bitterness on the finish, spices dominate.....mouth feel, light of medium body, no alcohol, high carbonation. This is a fairly typical, spice dominated, pumpkin Ale. A bit more caramel/crystal malt would give a bit of sweetness and help balance the spices. BJCP7/3/13/4/6

Great spice flavor goes really well with the spicy aroma. Nutmeg and all spice dominant the nose and tastebuds. Smooth drinking beer. Very good. Will get again.

Hazy deep copper with a thin white top. The nose smells of pumpkin spice and a little ginger. Nothing out of the ordinary or exciting here. Crisp carbonation and a bright body help to lighten an otherwise predictable and muddled style, though there are thr familiar beats of roasted pumpkin, some light pumpkin spices, a wee kiss of clove and a whisper of pumpkinny cinnamon. Not exactly re-inventing the wheel but it’s not muddled or overdone. This is a fine example of what keeps the curious keep coming back to pumpkin beers.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
뉴 홀란드 브루잉 - 아이카보드 5.2% ABV 호박과 넛맥, 시나몬이 첨가된 할로윈 시즈널 맥주. 개인적으로 이 호박 맛 맥주를 별로 안좋아하지만 다른 회사의 시즈널과는 다르게 호박및 첨가 스파이스를 낮췄다
호박맥주에 거부감이 있더라도 편히 즐길 수 있는 맥주. 미국인들에게 할로윈은 명절의 의미를 넘어 ’이제 슬슬 연말이군,’ 이라는 체감을 하는 전환 점 같은 행사로, 이 다음에는 줄줄이 추수감사절, 크리스 마스, 신년 행사등이 기다리고 있다
한마디ቯ 놀고 먹고 마시는 판이 슬슬 개막했다는 것을 알리는 맥주. 같은시기에 수없이 많은 고도수의 가을 겨울 시즈널 맥주도 쏟아져 나오기 시작한다.

Has the smell of pumpkin and spices. Light amber color with a small whitish head. Pumpkin spice flavor that fads with really no after taste. Over good tasting beer.

Light pumpkin smell. light overall color. Really just a bland ale. No pumpkin flavor or any type of spice. Not sure if I got a bad bottle.

As far as pumpkin beers go this is a good one. There is an argument to be made on the inferiority of pumpkin beers to normal beers... But for what it is its solid, and I enjoy it. Even though it’s still 90 degrees out, I can still sit in the air conditioning with my eyes closed and pretend it’s fall. Thank you Ichabod!

A bit heavy on the fall spice flavor. Not finding the pumpkin hiding under there. Otherwise pretty average.
