3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2011 Bottle. Light orange in color, the beer sported a tall foamy white head. Just average aroma. There is a very light pumpkin aroma, but little in the way of spices and malt. The taste is interesting at first but does not finish well with a spicy tanic aftertaste. Medium carbonation.I did not like the first bottle I tried. But after three (on different days) I am starting to see what they are trying to do. It is also not my favorite pumpkin beer. But it still good and unique in that it is not overly malty.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from a deli in Glasgow. Pours amber with a cream head. The aroma a pumpkin and cinnamon. A little too vegatable. The taste is a little odd. Cinamon and spiciness alongside some acidic notes. There’s a vegetable edge to it again. The body is thin. Interesting but not great.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Typical American pumpkin beer with off-white, dense, sticky head which dissolves quickly and remains stable only around the edge; colour a pretty deep orange blond with brownish hue, clear. Strong cloves aroma, pumpkin soup, cinnamon, orange peel, carrots, meat broth, mango, whisky. Soft fruity taste, mango and peach, orange, quick and long spiciness (retronasal cloves), white pepper touch in the finish, a little bit metallic, pumpkin soup again, grassy and citrussy hop finish, biscuity too. Interesting.

Very Nice pumpkin beer here. Copper colored with mild lacing on the glass.
Very nice pumpkin smell with just the right amount of spice. I rated this beer high for a pumpkin ale but not as high in the pallet section. Nice going down with just a mild better after taste.
My favorite pumpkins are Screamin Pumpkin by Griffins Claw followed by Dogfish Head Punkin Ale and Ichabod.
Cheers to you!
