Draught @ Smoke & Barrel, Washington, D.C. Pours slightly hazy light amber with airy white head. Clear vinous aroma with notes of yeast and hops. Clear taste of pumpkin and malt with subtle vinous and grainy touches. Rough finish. OK but rather watery.

Poured a cloudy orange with a faint head. Not much nose. In the mouth there is not a lot going on. Fine palate, but I expect more out of a pumpkin beer.

Bottle. Pretty clean gold with beige head. Spice, very strange candy like flavor, too sweet. I did not not enjoy

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap half pint at Gilly's Beer & Fine Wine in Rockville, MD.
Clear, medium amber with a small off-white head and sparse lacing.
Aroma of caramel, coriander, wheat and lemon. (Hello, where is the pumpkin?)
Taste of spices, nutmeg, coriander, wheat, caramel, lemon and pumpkin fruit.
Medium body and medium/low carbonization.
Did someone mix a witbier and a pumpkin ale? As a pumpkin ale, it is rather mild and mediocre. As a witbier, it lacks the classic yeast and banana flavor. This does not work for me.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy light brown color with a small white head on it. Nose has lots of pumpkin and spices in there, though I don’t think the aroma is all that strong. Taste is dirty and grainy, and with very few spices. Not that great of a taste on it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber gold with a thin white head. Aroma is strong pumpkin spice, cinnamon and slight roasted malt. Flavor is light pumpkin spice, cinnamon, nutmeg and some slight pumpkin. More pumpkin spice than actual pumpkin and the body is a little light. Nice and drinkable, but if you’re looking for a big pumpkin flavor this isn’t quite right.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Light brown color. Aroma of cooked squash & spice. Tastes of toasted grains, pumpkin, & spice. Spice includes the obvious nutmeg, but this one has a cinnamon tingle in the tip of the tongue. Finishes with a mild hop bite, grassy with a touch of band-aid. (3833)

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy copper with a white soapy head. Aroma of pumpkin bread. Pumpkin spice, nutmeg, and cinnamon overwhelm the nose. Cinnamon and nutmeg dominate the palate. Too bad the pumpkin isn’t up front like it should be. A but disappointing. Looking for a more cloying pumpkin flavor. Good carbonation. Cinnamon leaves a bit of a tingle.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poura a murky orange with a medium white head. Aroma has nice balance between spices and doughy malts...very pie-like. Flavor is more spicy and fairly earthy/hoppy...come across as a bit muddled. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is dry and muddled with spice and earthy bitterness.
