2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 ounce bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Pours an amber color with a medium head. Poor head retention and lacing. Very slight haze. Spices are dominant in the aroma, mainly your nutmegish pumpkin spices. Seems like there is actual pumpkin, even though the commercial description doesn’t say so. Taste is spice... lighter than the aroma... and some vegetal hops. Medium bodied.

Bottle… Hazy, amber ale with a small, flimsy, white head. The aroma is all about gingerbread. Medium-bodied with prickly carbonation. Leans a touch on the sweet side of balance. Subtle, spicy flavor of ginger and praline. Lightly acidic. Short, crisp, clean finish. Bottle courtesy of growler!

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle from Party Town. Shared with b3shine. 2nd pour is mostly hazy amber orange colored. Thin off-white head. Interesting kind of citrusy fruity nose... Harsher bittering hop and spice in the flavor. Couple dots and bits of lace. Medium body. Soft, kind of smooth carbonation of moderate strength. Moderate bitter, lightly spicy, light to moderate sweet taste. From the taste I suspect that this was either brewed in early last fall or the fall before. Tastes like a distinctly older pale with spices added, which doesn’t work well. Not a fan of this. Kind of musty. Code on back of the bottle was 4297.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle to half-pint glass (shared by DrSilverworm). Looks solid; a mostly transparent orange with off-white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells odd; the hops and winter spices seem to fight rather than marry. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Eh.
