3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber bottle poured a hazy dark orange w/ a moderate frothy light tan mostly diminishing head and good lacing. Moderate aroma of pumpkin, spices, caramel malts, and floral hops. Initial flavor is light sweet and has a light acidic finish of short duration. Taste is the same as the nose with vanilla and clove as dominate spices and the pumpkin has a nice light roast to it. Light to medium bodied, a mixture of watery & creamy texture giving it a smooth mouthfeel and soft carbonation. I enjoyed the balance of this beer the spices are subtle enough to let the flavor of the pumpkin come thru and a very light sweetness from the malts.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750 ml bottle painted orange. Pours a dark reddish brown. The aroma has pumpkins and spices.The taste is a letdown from the well balanced pumkin/spice aroma. The pumpkin is subdued and the spices are there but it seems to hide what it is-a pumpkin beer. I hate to say it but for $9.69 for a 750 ml I could have got a 6 pack of a better pumpkin beer than this. Scroll past.

11/20/12. 22oz bomber from Grassroots. Deep amber/brown pour with a nice khaki head that fades to a ring and doesnít lace much. Relatively stock spiced pumpkin beer aroma with a surprising dose of roasted squash aroma that is generally missing from these type of beers. Iím not saying Iím a fan, really, but itís there. The flavor is much the same - spice and squash. Props to them for that, but I just donít think Iíll ever love pumpkin brews anymore.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The pour is a deep dark orange with a thin white head that doesnít leave lacing. The aroma is subtly spicey. The taste is very clean, smooth, & just enough flavor to make it memorable. The mouthfeel is slightly watery but also a little creamy. It goes down easy. I was just hoping for a little bit more from rogue. Decent.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma is pumpkin like with spice, caramel malt, and paper. The appearance is amber with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall interesting but not overly impressive.

A dimly standard beer, there is a slight taste of the pumpkin. Its very clean beer, little substance but tasty.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark brown with a thin beige head. Aroma is pumpkin-forward but with only the most subtle hints of spice (and I might just be pretending itís there) and a sort of darkness to it. Like earth, raisin, and dirt. Flavor is earthy and toasty as well with a subtle pumpkin flavor factoring in. No spice really. Finishes with the pumpkin fading to the background and toast, roast and earth taking the front. Medium bodied and creamy mouthfeel, I will be forever grateful that Rogue can make a drinkable beer feel substantial. Itís good stuff, and I admire the subtlety but sorry, at this price point, I want freakiní fireworks with a pumpkin beer (that wonít affect the rating, but I had to say it).

Very delicious beer. You can really taste all the ingredients from the pumpkin to the spices. One of the better Chatoe Rogues.
