3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep copper amber with a nicely-lacing, puffy off-white head. Has a dry earthy pumpkin spice aroma with a touch of breadiness. Body starts with a malty palate, but not much sweetness, a touch of cinnamon and a dry earthy pumpkin finish with a subtle hint of tartness. A very drinkable and balanced brew.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice and interesting. Pretty clear amber colour with a disappearing head. Great spicy (cinnamon) aroma with subtle hints of "fruits" (pumpkin I imagine). Initial flavour is malty followed by a pleasant and surprisingly drinkable spiciness. The cinnamon makes me think of Christmas.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Probably the best pumpkin beer I’ve ever had. The flavor was subtle and not overpowering like most pumpkin beers.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
The flavor is a bit coppery, but it’s tolerable thanks to the spiced pumpkin aroma and taste.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear orange/copper colour with little in the way of a head. Fruity aroma, sweets and cinnamon flavour. No discernible pumpkin, but quite good and refreshing nonetheless.

35.5 cl bottle. No yeast in bottom. Smells very much like pumpkin. This is definately not my type of beer. To much ugly flavour of pumpkins.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is not a bad pumpkin ale. It reminds me a bit of Shipyard’s Pumpkinhead, however, it has more of a pumpkin taste to accompany that strong cinnamon aftertaste. An enjoyable beer for the holidays. Go have one!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Jax Package Store, Sandy Springs, Ga. - 12 oz bottle. Medium orane pur, little to no head, quite transparent. Aroma is very prominent with hints of potpourri, Christmas spices and cinnamon - fades slighlty as it settle. Flavor has the same spiciness and has a bit of a Wassel twang to it. Reminds me of Christmas - may actually taste good heated up. Mouthfeel is a tad thin. Decent.
