2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught at Brickskeller, Washington DC
Blond color, big head. It has a delicate aroma of cinnamon cookies. Smooth mouthfeel, with a quite evident cookie and cinnamon flavor. I don’t understand where the pumpkin is, and I just reject the concept of Halloween beers.

hazy light orange, sweet pumpkin pie aroma with lots of cinamon, light body, dry malt flavor with lots of spiced character, the spices add a balancing bitterness,
picking up a touch of sweetness that balances well with the cinamon

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle... Crystal clear, light amber ale. No lasting head. Spicy, breadsy, floral aroma with a hint of candied ginger. Good balance... lightly sweet, but fairly well-bittered. Pumpkin and spice is evident, but subtle, not cloying. Medium-bodied and watery... a little too thin. Fizzy carbonation. Short, crisp, clean finish. Not at all shabby, but not a style Iím really into. Iíve only run into a few pumpkin ales Iíve thoroughly enjoyed. Hey, itís beer... thatís a big plus!

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle. Poured a medium amber color with an averaged sized white head. Aromas of pumpkins and spices (Iím getting cinnamon, nutmeg and some others in there). I liked the way pumpkin was done in the aroma. Tastes of very light pumpkin and very light spices. The tastes were a major let down compared to the aroma. Thin and watery body.

Small head, horrible aroma with booze. Apple juice with strong carbonation. Pumpkin and cloves in taste, the nutmeg and the cinammon, brown suger. Off-bitterness. Light mouthfeel. A me-too pumpkin. Didnít work.
