3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle; Pour is fairly murky dark golden / amber with a modest, fine bubbled white head in this glass; it retains poorly, frankly - the nose is subtle, but pleasant here. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and graham cracker come through , with a touch of caramel present. The flavor profile is initial modest bitter from the hop profile, moving to a more robust malty bready cinnamon , spicey, light pumpkin notes and finishing with more graham cracker and modest spicing here. For a subtle brew, it has a nice balance, feel, and hides alcohol well for me.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy amber with thick beige head, with a slightly orange hue that fades somewhat slowly and unevenly. Minimal lacing on the glass. Nose of cinnamon, raisin bread, nutmeg, and some caramel malt. Fairly potent pumpkin spice presence on the palate additional notes of vanilla. Smooth and sweet finish. Medium body with average carbonation. Pretty solid pumpkin beer.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours dark ruby reddish amber. Very small white head. Aroma is flat out pumpkin pie; pumpkin, tasteful use of spice - really smells good. Flavor matches expectations of aroma. Just enough sweetness, spice, and hop presence - touch of alcohol. Its stays a ’beer’, which is really a compliment. Medium body. Very well done. This is good. Possibly the best overall pumpkin beer I’ve had.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I like this beer! It is a lighter more sessionable pumpking. Pours a dark amber orange with a descent white fluffy bubbly head. Aroma is cinnamon, nutmeg ,and pumpkin. Flavor is the same but stronger with a touch of whipped cream. Body is a bit light and has some descent lacing, but overall its a good pumpkin beer with actual pumpkin used in the beer. Gets a bit better when it warms.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 9/3/13
Aroma: The nose is full of autumn spice (cinnamon, nutmeg, etc.), with malts and hops
Appearance: Pours a cloudy dark-orange color, with an off-white head, and some spotty lace
Flavor: The taste is loaded with the spices described in the nose, there’s beer and hops here too
Palate: The body is medium, it has a nice mouthfeel, spice, and a lengthy finish
This is actually a really nice autumn beer. It’s really more of a cinnamon/nutmeg beer than a pumpkin beer, but it is tasty none-the-less. I really enjoyed it quite a bit. Great fall beer.

On tap at Cave's. Brown orange pour with a very small white head. Aroma is pumpkin spice. Really nice out first, but then just too much. Taste is the same. Great at first and now just too damn much.
