3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear orange/gold with a thin white head. Aroma is very doughy. Flavor follows suit...very doughy with mild spice and a touch of very gourdy pumpkin...like carving a pumpkin smells. Mouthfeel is light and the finish is doughy/pumpkiny with minimal spice. Not bad but boring.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught @ Brewpub: Nitro tap, ordered mine without the cinnamon and sugar on the glass rim. This one pours a hazy, slightly orangish lighter amber color. There was a tight, dense finger of 0ff-white foam on it. Some pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices to the nose, but not overpowering. Creamy body. A touch on the lighter side. Pumpkin, pumpkin pie spices are the main tastes. Just a touch of malt sweetness. Not bad.

Nitro draft at Farmers Cabinet. Slightly hazy orange amber pour. Large white head. Smooth body. Body feels full though the palate feels weight less. Not bad, just feels maybe too effortless.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The beer pours great with orangish/golden color to it, has a solid creamy white head and leaves a good amount of lacing on the glass. The beer smells great with a well balanced blend of nutmeg, all spice, and pumpkin...not overpowering in any aspect like most pumpkin ales with too much spice. The taste is great with a nice pumpkin flavor up front that gives away to a spicey finish (nutmeg, all spice, and hints of cinnamon). The mouthfeel is great as the beer was poured perfectly, medium bodied, but left you with that lingering spice flavor, somewhat drying. Overall, a decent pumpkin ale, well balanced, and even better via nitro.

Slight pumpkin spice aroma. Nitro. Low carbonation, not sure if it helps the beer or not. Ok, plenty of aroma though.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On nitro tap at the brewpub, served with a rim of cinnamon and sugar. Pours a cloudy orange with a thick white nitro head. Aroma of cinnamon on the top of the glass (can’t smell beyond it!). Flavor of cinnamon, bitter pumpkin. Fairly bland without the added cinnamon. However, it is not sickly sweet like lots of pumpkin ales. Ok overall.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
This one listed as Pumpkin’s pumpkin spice @ 5.6%. Served with brown sugar and spices on the glass rim which I promptly removed for the tasting. Vanilla yella and a little hazy. Lots of cinny and pumpkin smells but not like pumpkin pie. Flat, with pumpkin taste impressions. Very little bitterness if any. Not bad as a pumpkin beer, but could use more CO2. One of the better flavored pumpkin beers I’ve tasted.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
11/13/07 - Sample at brewpub. Amber color, no head (draft sample). Nose is kinda messed up by the cinnamon and sugar rimmer (great idea). Nice malt character w/ the subtle hint of pumpkin. Nice, unexpected hop finish. Good stuff. Nice pumpkin ale. It is spiced well enough, subtle, but drinking with "spice rimmer" really makes this thing pop.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled on draft at the RIvertowne Pub this beer poured an orange-amber color with a small khaki head. The aroma was lightly sweet and spicy. The flavor was lightly sweet and malty with elements of nutmeg and cinnamon. Mildly bitter and a bit thin in body.
