3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A little bit too boozy. Otherwise this has a nice balance of pumpkin meat and spice flavors. Just too much burn for the amount of pumpkin flavor.

12 oz bottle. Foggy brown with a bone head. Typical spicing with cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice with a caramel and pumpkin base. Creamy body with a buzz and a spicy tang. Taste is earthy pumpkin pie and briefly sweet caramel apple succumbing to lingering bitter spice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A nice amber body with an off-white head that had good retention and lace. Nice caramel malts upfront, followed by a nice savory quality from the pumpkin, rounded out by nice autumn spices. Flavor had a nice malt base which was complemented by pumpkins which came through perfectly. Finish had a nice presence of nutmeg along with notes of cloves and maybe some all-spice. Finish was smooth and the beer was easy to drink. Alcohol was well hidden.

12 oz bottle from Trader’s Joe. Pours hazy brown with a short lived off-white head and lively carbonation. Nose reminds me of Belgian sour red, also some spices, caramel malt, hints of cacao. Body is full and tangy. Taste is some pumpkin, spices, herbal hops, brown sugar, and caramel. Finish is long and very spicy. Nice brew.

Reddish amber with white head. Definitely a sipper. A great aroma of hop, spice, cumin, pepper, pumpkin (after it sits a while). Body and carbonation are medium. Some alcohol in the taste, as well as spice and pumpkin.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a deep dark orange-red with a small off-white head. Aroma is classic pumpkin pie, a lot of spice; cinnamon, allspice, clove. Taste is not as sweet as the aroma indicated, but still with some decent pumpkin and spice, would have liked more sweet pumpkin flavor. Finish is sweet, a little bitter, with more spice. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. I like the mouthfeel and body a lot. Solid pumpkin beer.
