1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Out of the 12oz bottle. Acquired in a trade and enjoyed at fridge temp in a snifter. Half a finger off-white head that fades fast. Deep amber color. Nice and hazy. Scent is full of tons of nutmeg and cinnamon. Hint of sweet molasses. Taste is loaded with pumpkins but itís sort of muted / cheap tasting. Itís not all that powerful of a taste profile..sort of cutting corners pumpkin taste. Almost no spices and an overly sweet finish with this rotten apple fast. Medium body.

Got this in a pint for the brewery tour. Wished I had picked any other (did tasting after tour). No head, not much aroma, very little flavor profile. Seemed like I was drinking the uncarbed/unseasoned wort. Slight pumpkin in the background, otherwise tasted of malt and water.

12 oz bottle - pours copper with no head. Flavor is cinamon, caramel and pumpkin. Festivily autumnal. Sweet and spicy. Watery with a lingering spiciness. Glad I tried it but will not repeat.

This beer does not disappoint. Enough flavor but does not over do it. Really impressed with this brewery.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Amber beer out of the bottle with a thick, foamy beige head. Nice spicey pumpkin beer nose with lots of nutmeg, cinnimon and pie spice. Very smooth mouthfeel. Very flavorful beer with lots of pumpkin, cinnimon, nutmeg, pie crust and the flavor that reminds me of the pumpkin raisen cookies that my mom makes in the fall. This is a very nice pumpkin seasonal.

Draft to taster at Rivertown. Looks decent; brownish-orange with good carbonation and creme lacing. Smells mild, but of pumpkin and spices. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Not bad.

12 ounce bottle, the new batch just showed up at the store recently. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a clear orange/copper color with an inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both decent enough. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices. It also tastes like pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and some molasses. Itís a nice sweet and spicy brew. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís a bit slick with good carbonation. I think itís a solid pumpkin ale, itís worth trying. $8.99 a 6 pack.

Bottle from a sixer purchased at Blacklick Wine & Spirits. Clear copper pour with a thick beige head. Malty nose with cinnamon, ginger and allspice notes. Malty flavor with cinnnamon, vanilla and ginger before a dry, crisp finish.
