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.

3.6 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.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours amber brown. Overwhelming pie spice aroma. Spice blend overpowers the pumpkin flavor a bit. Warmth on the way down.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber pour with a beige head. Aroma of pumpkin and spice hits you during the pour. Taste is nutmeg and pumpkin. Nutmeg and cinnamon top the pumpkin flavor. An ok beer. Donít even notice the 7.5 % Alc. Dry spicy aftertaste.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
If I were blindfolded and this beer was place under my nose, Iíd swear I was smelling PUMPKIN PIE! Marvelous! Pours a slightly hazy cinnamon amber with a mostly diminishing foamy tan head and spotty lacing. The taste, like the nose, is delightful! Pumpkin, all the appropriate spices, even the whipped creamed topping and a well browned crust are present. None of the flavor elements overpowers their neighbors. Very well balanced. Overall, this is an exceptionally well crafted beer and true winner!

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice copper color, just a bit hazy, this as plenty of spices and tastes just like pumpkin pir. te ale underneath is a bit weak and carbonation just a tad high.

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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours a mostly clear burnt orange color with about an inch and a half frothy off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Aroma is pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg. The flavors in this brew as just like I smell in the aroma, but the taste isnít quite as strong as I thought it would be (but itís still good). Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís a bit slick and has moderate carbonation. Drinkability is good, itís smooth and goes down easy. Not a bad overall pumpkin ale, Iíd buy this again in the future. Itís definitely worth a try.

Pours a deep amber color with off-white head. Pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, and caramel malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with some spice.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tons of off-white lace all over my glass. Whoa, massive nutmeg/cinnamon bomb in the nose. Jesus, that smells great.
Taste delivers so much nutmeg & cinnamon! Pumpkin pie in my mouth. Good, yet falls short of the awesomeness shown in the aroma. Solid.
