3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Glass: Weyerbacher tulip.
Appearance: Hazy brown leaning amber body with a dense light tan head on top.
Aroma: The aroma hints of sweet malts, hints of pumpkin and mild spices. Clove and ginger come to mind with a dash of cinnamon.
Taste: Hints of slightly tart pumpkin up front into a clean mid-taste that leads to cinnamon and nutmeg followed by sweet malts giving caramel flavor. Finish is mildly spicy and lingers a moment.
Palate: Creamy body, mild to moderately carbonated.
Overall: This tastes a little congested, murky. It’s not bad, but it doesn’t stand out in the (large) sea of pumpkin beer.

Bottled. Pours an orange copper. Aroma is cinnamon, pumpkin spice. Flavor is a lot of cinnamon, nutmeg, less pumpkin spice compared to other pumpkin beers. Decent.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an ice tea color with a thin white head which disappears quickly leaving a naked brew with no head. Aroma of pumpkin and nutmeg. Taste is very dry with a quick hit of pumpkin, little spice then booz......a bit of metallic in the back end.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Fado. Slightly hazy orange amber pour that started with a large white head that left lots of lace. Reasonably full body. Medium-spicy. Semi-dry. Usual Pumpkin Beer notes. Some Barleywine style caramels keep the flavor smooth. Ok, but nothing to get excited about really.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle gift from SJ. Not a bad pumpkin. Notes of warming spice, pumpkin and dirt. It wasn’t overbearing like most imperial pumpkins. Some nice blends and flavors.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Aroma of pumpkin spices, and vegetive notes as well. Not much to the flavor, and is a bit earthy. Spices don’t come through, and the finish has an earthy bitterness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at stags head. Pours pretty orange color. Nose of cinnamon and pumpkin pie. Tastes similar of canned pie filling, cinnamon, nutmeg, some earth, bready and slight alcohol burn. Decent and I thought I was done with pumpkin for the season.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A serviceable pumpkin ale for the season. Hits the right notes - clove, cinamon, noticeable pumpkin notes. Not overwhelming but fine.

This may be an imperial pumpkin ale but it tastes mellow and medium bodied. This isn’t a criticism. Rather I think they got the balance right on this one. Not overly spiced at all which can be a downfall of pumpkin and fall ales. Prolly my favorite beer of the night and I’ve had a few.
