4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a brownish orange with a creamy head. Smells like fresh pumpkin pie. Taste is unbelievably pumpkin for a beer. Easily the best pumpkin beer I’ve tasted. I didn’t try this, but you could probably add whip cream or vanilla ice cream for a great beer float.

09/20/13 trade from Jamil. A stellar pumpkin. Big pumpkin spice nutmeg scent with sweet cream touch. Beauty of a bronze pour. Medium body. Big pumpkin to spice flavor with a creamy mix on the nutmeg finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy dark orange with a quickly fading white head. Aroma of sweet pumpkin pie spices, nutmeg, some cinnamon notes. Taste is sweet pumpkin spices, nutmeg with some malt and mild hops bitterness. A medium body with good carbonation. Has sweet pumpkin pie spice and nutmeg flavor, with some moderate hops bitterness on the end for balance. Overall has some back bone and flavor for a pumpkin ale, a good brew.

This is a very strong pumpkin beer. Smells are amazing if you like the style. Seriously like a pumpkin pie in a bottle - up there with pumking

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.

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.
