3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
To finish out our night of the impy stouts tasting tonight, I pulled out a case of this OFallon Pumpkin beer that I got on clearance at my store for $10.99 a case (4 six pks.) Didn’t intend to rate originally, but they’re really still pretty good for being slightly out of date, and certainly not a disappointment even if they’d been full till. A very well balanced pumpkin spiced ale with a decently (and not over-aggressively) spiced nose with fairly creamy mouth-feel and an overall sessionable experience.
I’d be more than happy to try again fresh next fall (and at full till) now that I’ve seen they have a very respectable spiced brew on their hands here!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
O’Fallon Pumpkin Beer has a thin, off-white head, a hazy, orange appearance with lots of bubble streams, some suspended brown chunks, and thin lacing left behind. The aroma is strong, pungent, sweet, wheaty, pumpkiny, and spicy. Taste is all of that, with no artificial or off aspects. It is not too sweet or overbearing. Mouthfeel is medium, and O’Fallon Pumpkin Beer finishes mostly dry, refreshing, and fairly sweet. This is one of the better pumpkin beers I have tried. RJT

This is one of my favorite pumpkin beers. The flavor tastes exactly like pumpkin pie with the whipped cream on top. This is one of the best pumpkin beers I have had. My standard is Samuel Adams Harvest Pumpkin Ale but O’Fallon Pumpkin is a close second.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle part of my Fall trade with queenholly. Slightly hazy orange color with quickly vanishing head leaving nothing in the wake. Nose is light gourd and all spice. Taste is decent. Pumpkin pie filling, cinnamon, honey, and cinnamon. Body is light and a touch watery. Can you find better pumpkin ales? Of course you can but this is still a decent drinker.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle thanks to Keir. Poured a slightly cloudy deep burnt orange body underneath a smaller fizzy light beige head. Aroma had an initial blast of veggies, wet french fries, rotting pupkin and some spice. Medium body with stronger carbonaton that builds during the entire swallow till it’s a bit distractive. Flavor is a bit more spiced up than the aroma. Notes of cinnamon and cloves along with lots of veggies, a hint of sour rotting pumpkin and old wet grains.

Bottle - good size foamy head, medium orange color, fair clove and pumpkin aroma and flavor, mildly sweet malt - not bad for a pumpkin beer

Thanks to Gil. The spices seemed a bit old smelling and felt added afterward not brewed in. Serving: Bottle

Bottle. Pours a murky, copper-orange color. Smallish white head, not much retention, no lacing. Nose is pie spice (cinnamon and nutmeg), some malty caramel. Mouth is kinda thin, lightly sweet malt with more of that pie spice, a vegetal and astringent. Average.

2.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Aroma and appearance is that of a pumpkin pie. Little head that quickly disappears. Light thin body. Something abut the combination of the spices and the carbonation makes me not rate it higher. It is one of the better pumpkin ales I have had, but I am quickly finding that I am not a fan of the style.
