3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a crystal clear pale copper with no head to speak of. Curious vegetal nutmeg aroma. Lager/Oktoberfest maltiness at the beginning of the sip opens up into buttery, spicy finish, with just a touch of clean hoppiness at the end. Thin, crisp body and ample carbonation. Itís a bit unfair to compare this to the typical caramelly nutmeggy pumpkin ale offerings; from an Oktoberfest perspective this is rather nifty, and blends two autumn beer traditions rather well.

Poured from the tap. Clear golden yellow with minimal white head. Very biscuity and corny like cornbread. Mild pumpkin and cinnamon fills it out.

Draught at the brewery
Clean amber color. The cinnamon aroma is mild. The mouthfeel is lean, off-dry, with biscuity malts and very mild cinnamon.
Appreciated because delicate.

Bottle to flute
I got a six pack of these back in October hoping to keep the thanksgiving/Halloween spirit going. This one has been sitting idle for a few months and today, I realized that I never rated it. It has a spicy (mace, nutmeg, nutmeg, and cinnamon) and gourdy aroma with some maple and brown sugar. Itís a cloudy amber with practically no head. Taste is pumpkin, nutmeg, all-spice, and ginger. Not a great beer...but a great drink, because I love pumpkin.

where to start this beer is the ultimate fail unless and only if you donít like heavy pumpkin beers cause its lighter than a feather and the weakest pumpkin taste you ever did taste

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (341 ml). From FondueVoodoo, thanks! Clear bright golden/orange with a small off-white head and little to no lacing. Aroma is most of spices (nutmeg, cinnamon, all-spice and ginger) along with pumpkin and light caramel. Taste is about the same with as much spices. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Even with all those spices itís still decently drinkable. Not my kind of beer, but not bad for the style.

2013-10-23. Crisp dark amber body head modest off white head. Aroma is mild, sweetish malt, whisper of vanilla and cinnamon. Flavour sweetish malt base, sweet pumpkin and a bit of pumpkin spice, cinnamon notes. Whisper of vanilla or am I imagining that? Smooth average plus bodied palate, soft carbonation. 3+ Decent.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear copper with a small white head and some lacing. Aroma of cereal/pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and slight ginger. Taste is pine pumpkin, nutmeg allspice and a nice ginger tingle on the finish. Crisp and eat lager and a nice marzen base thatís quite malty and not too overpowered by the spices although the pumpkin becomes a bit much after a pint but still easy to drink.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is one of the best pumpkin beers I have tried. 341ml bottle 5%. Clear copper-amber pour, that produces a bubbly foam. Aroma is potent, lots of nutmeg, cinnamon, hint of allspice. Taste is malty, lots of sweet and grainy notes, and a heavy fleshy pumpkin flavour This is a pretty good seasonal, and despite the presence of fairly heavy flavours, it remains a balanced, medium bodied lager.
