3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lightly hazy burnt orange color. Mostly white head. I actually get realy pumpkin in the aroma and not just spices. Flavor hits with a bit of pumpkin and spice, but it still remains a "beer"...no sweet or artificial flavors going on here. Pretty damn good.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From notes: pours hazy orange-amber with a small, thin, light tan head. Aroma is a pleasant blend of pumpkin meat and pumpkin spices. Medium-bodied, with a mild depth to it. Taste is pleasant-heavier on the pumpkin spice up front with the pumpkin meat coming through more in the finish, along with a slight buttery note.

Not a bad offering, this tastes more like a heavy malt beer than a pumpkin beer though. You can pick up the pumpkin and some spice but you have to search for it. Good beer but if youre looking for pumpkin I would try something else. Aroma is of a malty beer and again you’ll have to search for the pumpkin and spice. Very drinkable, a good beer.

Sampled at the beach with kristen. Pours a nice clear amber with ring of near white head. Smells like zuchinnibread. Not too heavy on the pumpkin or spices, but very present. Very good. A little alcohol heat. Good name and label.

I enjoyed this beer very much. It has a light note of pumpkin and a stronger note of roasted malt.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A: The beer pours a cloudy, brownish, amber color with a small, soapy, off-white head.
S: There’s a light metallic note to it and some water there as well. Very heavy on the spice/herb notes. There’s a ot of cinnamon and nutmeg along with a bit of sage. Some light grass and bready malt.
T: The flavor is almost savory/meaty. A light smoke note, some cardboard, and minimal pumpkin. There is also a moderate spice note, mostly the same ones as detected on the aroma.
M: Medium bodied with a medium carbonation.
O: Not a good aroma or flavor. Pretty bad pumpkin beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours dark amber. Off white head. Nose/taste of all spice, pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg. Soda like carbonation out of the bottle. Mouth feel is a bit chalky with lots of pumpkin and spices. Touch of warming alcohol in finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not a bad beer. It is quite balanced for a beer of above 8% ABV. Color hazy copper. Not much on the nose, but the taste is decent and it covers the mouth well. In the end it is a good beer, but not quite as "pumpkin-y" as I would like.
