On tap at JP A2. Pours a clear gold with a white head that lasted throughout the beer. Aroma has a real nice pine and grapefruit note with subtle pumpkin and spice lying underneath. Flavor has much more pumpkin and spice with the hops blending into the background.

Great pumpkin beer. Slight pumpkin taste mixed with roasted hops. Very well blended. Not much aroma but what’s there isn’t bad. Palate very clean. Very good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Jackie-Os, the very last bit of their keg... They could only fill my pint glass halfway, so they only charged me $1. Good deal. Clear pumpkin-orange color, a nice persisting white head. Decent lace. Good, hearty pumpkin aroma with nutmeg, and discernable hops. Barely any carbonation, possibly because it was the end of the keg, but I’m fine with that... I liked the texture, it was more on the lighter side, but full-flavor. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Buffalo Wings & Rings, East Broad St in Reynoldsburg. Pours a clear orange with a medium off-white head. Spicy malty and hoppy aroma, but pretty faint. Flavor starts with malt and cinnamon, than some grassy hops creep in, followed by spicy ginger before a bitter hop finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft @ Dutch’s. Pours a clear dark golden color with a medium sized off white head. Nose has the pumpkin and spices that are usually present in these beers. Additional notes of spicy herba hops and bready malts. The flavor opens with pumpkin and spices before being overwhelmed by herbal hops, bready malt and a strong general bitterness. When La Parcela is part of your portfolio, this is a dissapointment.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub im Ann Arbor. Juicy hoppy twang in the nose, with spice glow. Flavors pit restrained spice against bristly hops. Good, but a bit awkward. Clean. A more drinkable spiced pumpkin.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
draft at JP, sadly had this after the La Parcela and there’s no comparison... dark gold with a light orange hue... the nose is light a little hops with a bit of spice... doesn’t taste good at all, a weird spiced hop finish, not a good combo
