2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
I can’t get these punkin beers; they’r rather dull and usually have more spices than punk, if any. Spices abound in this one too. Yep, these beers need more co2, tartness, sugar and less dullness. Nit impressed.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle in a trade with queenholly. Nose is cinnamon and caramel malt. Weak flavors of pumpkin, all spice and it has a strange sour ginger note. Body is thin and watery. Almost a sweet sugary finish. This odd sour ginger is real distracting and takes away from this beer. Is ginger even an ingredient in this brew? I really don’t like ginger root as a taste at all and for me this brew just does not work. Perhaps this works better on draft….

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a soft hazy red orange with one finger of off white head. Nose is soft and spicy, round and bready with notes of pumpkin flesh and squash. A little dry on the spice side in the flavor and pumpkin flesh definitely shows. Medium to light bodied.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma is sweet with pumpkin and spices but slightly plasticy. The appearance is amber with a tiny head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is typical. Overall fun to try as a seasonal but not a favorite.

Pint on tap. Nose is cinnamon and a hint of caramel and pumpkin. Tastes of cinnamon, nutmeg and too much other pied spices with some tea leaf caramel and maybe some pumpkin. Near-medium body has average carbonation and is to the sweet side.

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.

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 it’s sort of muted / cheap tasting. It’s 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.
