0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
I had this at a restaurant my band ( www.TheMartiniShakers.com for a shameless plug--this is where I had it, though) was playing one night. They were having a special event where only Olde Towne beers were being served.
Had I not been drinking for free, I would have demanded my money back.
I drank a pint of this crap, and couldn’t drink any more beer that night. Every Olde Towne beer I drank after that tasted like this.
I would rather drink the beer in the bar towel of a pub that serves ANY other beer than this than EVER put this to my lips again.
Avoid this liek the plague!!!!!!!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the Nook. Pale in the glass with a creamy white head. Big pumpkin and nutmeg aroma with a backing of butter. The pumpkin is not nearly as big in the flavor, but there, with some dough and wheat. Light to medium body with some tingly carbonation and a wheat aftertaste.

I’m not much on Pumpkin ales, but this one has good body and a nice balance of spices. Probably better than any Pumpkin Ale I’ve ever had.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I thought it was rather tasty. Had it on tap tonight at the House of Brews in Huntsville. Nice dark orange-amber in color with no head. Fairly strong aroma of pumpkin spice, nutmeg. Very flavorful ... malty with strong pumpkiny overtones and a nice, dark spiciness to it. Very enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is the first pumpkin ale I have had, but since it was a local brew, I ordered one, not knowing what to expect.
Almost clear, with a very slight cloudiness. Orange in color. The aroma was definitely pumpkin pie spices and a little pumpkin, but the taste was definitely beer. Smooth and easy to drink, but definitely not an every day beer. I could smell the holidays though.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
This beer is only available on tap in Huntsville at a few select places, or kegs from the brewer. Color is hazy orange with very little off-white head. The aroma is faintly sour malt with a pumkin nose, some fruitiness. The flavor is sour pumkin and malt, heavy yeast finish. Palate is mild and fizzy.
