3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. Clear orange-amber with a lasting disc of cream on top. Aroma is lots of cinnamon, caramel and hints of cherry cola. Taste is nearly all cinnamon up front, with cherry cola and then some occasional nice flashes of earthy caramelized pumpkin flesh. Some leafy hop almost makes an appearance as well. Nice little touch of roast on the finish. Medium body has low-average carbonation and is pretty well balanced. Another over-spiced pumpkin, but not as much as some.

Mahogany color with a quickly falling medium head. Aroma of nutmeg and cloves. A restrained nutmeg flavor, dash of cinnamon. Very biscuity. Solid malt. Enjoyed it much more than I thought I would.

Plum color with a pink head, and a thick head at that. Great aroma of pumpkin, nutmeg and allspice. Tastes like pumpkin, cream, and spice with a healthy bite. One of the best pumpkin ales Iíve had. Good, bitter finish.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle served in a snifter.
Pours clear, deep red-copper with a modest and weak tan head.
More spicy in the flavor and feel than in the nose, particular the cinnamon component. Perhaps due to a richer malt base, even with rather bold spicing this pumpkin is not over-spiced. Those not liking cinnamon much will disagree; this has enough cinnamon to, I think, add a slight burn to the feel.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A very decent pumpkin beer. The aroma of nutmeg, cinnamon, and pepper is great. The flavor is surprisingly balanced between malty vegetable and the spicy characteristics youíd expect from a pumpkin beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a reddish orange with a small tight head. The aroma is spicy with some pumpkin pie and fruit, fairly nice all around. The flavor is more pumpkin pie spice with a fair bit of booze but a rich maltiness that never really seems terribly sweet. Itís pretty tasty beer, but I think it would be a lot better at a lower gravity.
