3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft sample, Bavarian Lodge. Nose is full of pumpkin pie spice: nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, a little ginger. Color in the little glass is light brown. Taste has those usual nutmeg, cinnamon and other spices, and leaves you to guess whether thereís actual pumpkin in here. But I caught something else: a distinct creamy or fatty impression that immediately made me think of pumpkin pie crust, whipped cream or even a pumpkin mousse. Donít want call it "buttery" because thatís not diacetyl. A nice surprise for this kind of brew.

Pours a burnt orange, semi cloudy with light cream head. Pumpkin and sweetness upfront with spice and hop bitters on the back. This is a good beer for people who want something halfway between a sweet rich imperial pumpkin ale and an less aggressive ale with just a hint of pumpkin and spice.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
The can was the best part of this beer. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz can this beer poured a cloudy orange-caramel color with a medium sized creamy-soapy off white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was sour, tangy and industrial with notes of corn and cinnamon. The flavor was tangy, industrial and corny with a bit of cinnamon, nutmeg and yeast. Medium finish and medium body. Not good.

Does not have much of an aroma. It has a very pale color. Very generic beer taste. Maybe a hint of pumpkin, but overall not much flavor. Local brewery, so I really wanted to like it. One of the best looking cans on the market.

Thanks to Gil. The hop flavor in this seemed a little out of place. Brighter in flavor and appearance than some other pumpkin beers. Serving: Can

Bottle at Crios. Hazy golden amber color, small off white head. Aroma of light spice and just enough goird. Taste is pretty well balanced and not over spiced.

It poured an orange color with a white head. The aroma was of pumpkin pie spices, tea, sweet and sour malts with lots of clove. The taste was of cloves, cinnamon, pumpkin and sour maltiness. Average.

Dirty Hazy Muddy Brown, Big Foamy White Head, Good Lacing. Mild Pumpkin Aroma. Pumpkin, Cinnamon. Watery with dry cinnamon tingly finish. Might be my first Pumpkin Ale. Interesting. Harvest / Halloween Season is upon us. There are so many Pumpkin Beer Choices in stores, that Iíll definitely try more.While Iím not really a fan of pumpkins or cinnamon, beer driven curiosity wins. Worth a Try. Plus, it is local brewer, so I need to add another place to visit on my TO DO list...

Can. Pours a deep ambery-orange, medium head decent retention and lacing. Nose is pumpkin, hints of pie spice, whiff of malt. Mouth is medium bodied, pumpkin, pie spice, cereal, cake. One of the better pumpkin beers Iíve tasted, but Pumking is still the reigning mad overlord of pumpkin beers.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2013 Dark orange,light head,little lace. Hazed. Decent froth.
Aroma is some generic pumpkin spice more of a nutmeg/allspice maybe,a bit of breadiness along with some vegetal/earthy tones.Slight orange.
Taste is mild with citrus,spices,mineral,orange.Its kinda like an octoberfest/blonde mix but with spice to describe the type. Medium light bodied,citrus,mineral finish,slight earthy clove in the end wich im not that fond of. Pretty sessionable beer overall,mildly festive with the spice. Good pumpkin beer,fits in pretty average maybe a bit above avererage,nothing offensive. Definatly would be a party crowd pleaser,easy drinking,nothing over the top,festive and pretty decent. I could bang out a sixer of these if I felt up to it on a holloween party if I felt like it worthy of sharing also.Like the design too.Im liking it more I try this.
