2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle. 2010 vintage. Pours crystal clear yellow with the slightest hint of gold with a big bubbled head that leaves a little lace. Smells like a pumpkin pie, but much lower on the spice notes than previous efforts. Thereís a wheat note underneath that throws the whole thing off a little. In the mouth itís got a very watered down pumpkin feel with some underlying spice, but not enough, nowhere near enough. Finishes with a slight bitterness and an off note I canít put a finger on.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: Hazy gold with low head. Well carbonated.
Aroma: Cloves, Cinnamon, allspice, ginger, brandy, Banana bread, biscuity.
Flavour: Spicy first with a light malt background. Sweet but finishes with a light sour character (spices?) tastes more of pumpkin pie spices than it does of beer. Spice first then malt and no hop flavour or bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied and fizzy.
Overall: Well, itís a pumpkin beer what should i have expected. Spice dominates beer character. Finishes sweet and spicy with lingering spice and a light sour character.

Clear, golden & spritzy looking, with no head. Aroma is earthy pumpkin with mild nutmeggy spice. Flavor is malty with a mild cinnamon bite. The beer is decent but not overly exciting.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy gold colour with a small white head. Spice aroma...holy crap, it smells like pumpkin pie! Tastes like it too! You can taste pumpkin, cloves, nutmeg, and cinnamon in the beer (with a little bitter hop finish at the end). The aftertaste is a bit too light, but still, itís pie in a bottle! This just made my day.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle courtesy of tupalev. As soon as I popped the cap it started foaming out of the bottle, which had me worried, turns out it was fine. It pours a cloudy yellow-gold with a few small floaties, lots of bubbles and a huge lasting foamy white head. Aroma has lots of pumpkin and spices right off the bat, which I like, followed by sweet malt, yeast and light hops -- this is how I like my Pumpkin beers to smell! Flavourís not as flavourful as the aroma suggested and Iíd like it spicier but itís still enjoyable enough: Starts mild, Golden Ale or Pilsnener-like along with sweet malt, grain, a decent amount of pumpkin, some spices and a light bitter finish. After a while the pumpkin and spices start to come through more making it more enjoyable. Medium bodied, quite carbonated. A nice surprise -- thereís so many crappy or mediocre Pumpkin beers out there but this isnít one of them, this one is quite good!
