Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a light copper color with a slight off white head. The nose is boiled carrots and pumpkin. The flavor follows suit with some pumpkin spice. Weak body with a dishwater aftertaste. This one is pretty bad.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden in the glass with a nearly white head. Fruity-spicy in the nose, hints of peach and - of course - pumpkin. The beer starts smooth, fruity. Malty and not too sweet body. The mainpart is malty, a bit yeasty, nice subtle pumpkin-aroma with smooth sweetness. The aftertaste in smooth, pumpkin and slightly sweetness.
Nice brew, but could be much more spic and pumpkin in it! --> 10/12/10/19

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very much just a pumpkin ale, as opposed to a pumpkin *pie* ale. Fruity pumpkin with a somewhat bitter (hop?) finish.

2.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very nice mouthfeel, bubbly and light. Slightly sour, which I liked, this would go well with an oily meal. The aroma was ordinary for a pumpkin ale, nothing really stood out. For the style, this was over wet hopped, the bitterness overrode the sweet pumpkin esters and flavors to a certain degree. Not much pumpkin spice. There was a light, but still off putting flavor of metal or aluminum foil on the end; that kind of ruined this beer. If this was not a pumpkin ale and the metal flavor was removed, it would probably be very good, but for the style, it is sub par. After airing out for about 20-30 minutes, it develops a custard flavor, making it a little better.
