3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had on tap on Wild Monk. Served in a pint glass.
A: Pours a nice amber color with a solid white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin cap that leaves nice sticky lace down the glass.
S: Nice combinations of nutmeg and all spice with some background cinnamon. Warm biscuit and some fleshy pumpkin. Great nose.
T: Sadly the taste is disappointing compared to the nose. Definitely lager yeast flavors and much bigger biscuit malt flavors. The pumpkin takes a back seat and the spices aren’t too pronounced.
M: Medium to light bodied with a nice medium carbonation and creamy mouthfeel.
O: The nose was great, but I felt like the taste was venturing into Marzen territory. Easily drinkable, but definitely lacking the definitive pumpkin pie flavors in the taste. I had a Schlafly pumpkin ale after this and it just confirmed my experiences.
Serving type: on-tap

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Kris Wines, Holloway. Amber pour with a white head. Lots of root veg in the nose- parsnip, sweet potato, squash, pumpkin (of course) plus a splash of citrus. Sweet root veg action in the flavour with some sweet fruit making itself known too. Not bad.

Cinnamon, cloves and spicy vermuth. Palate medium, bit over carbonated. Taste wine, gingerbread, myrth. Decent, watery and not a real pumpkin at all. Maybe pumpkin spice ale.

Keg (OlutExpo2015) as "Brooklyn Roast Pumpkin Ale"
Typical sweet spiced aroma. Some pumpkin flesh, some pumpkin seeds. Watery palate. Bland fleshy mashy mess. Pie spices exactly as I don’t like them - fighting to grab your attention. My reaction is to just slam the door in their face. Ticked, never need to revisit.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured into a glass. A nice orange Amber color. You can smell the "pumpkin" spice. It is a nice balance between malt and fall spices. I don't usually like pumpkin beers. This is a little on the sweet side but not overly so. My favorite pumpkin beer
