3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at CBM Koenji. Clear, deep amber with a soapy one-finger head. Strong aromas of ginger and cardamom with some light cinnamon and roasted pumpkin. Very well-balanced on the palate with a wonderful pumpkin pie and cool-whip character. Body is a little thin and watery, but not too distracting. Good finish, not overly sweet both spices and pumpkin getting equal spotlight. 2nd best pumpkin beer I had this year.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
This is the year that finally made me stop saying that I dislike pumpkin beers. I guess I became a convert. Beers like Rogue’s Pumpkin Patch Ale are responsible. Fresh pumpkin is key, and Rogue Pumpkin Patch has loads of that. The spice notes from cinnamon and nutmeg fit wonderfully with the naturally creamy notes of the malt. Liquid pumpkin pie - yes, that deScription is cliche but it’s perfectly suited for this beer. Come on, humans. Let’s make a pact to continuing to make pumpkin brews like this one.

One of the better pumpkin seasonals. Has a nice fresh taste of pumpkin, not overwhelming and not overloaded with spices or sweetness either. Nice flavour and balance.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Fresh 2015 Bottle. Poured into tulip. Aggressive pour results in a three finger head, which is fluffy and off white in color. Beer is a dark amber almost mahogany color. Good lacing. Aroma is on the lighter side. Some notes of typical spices and some pumpkin. Taste is lightly sweet with a dryer finish. Malty with balanced spice notes and some squash/pumpkin especially in finish. Average to lighter carbonation. Medium bodied beer. Overall this is a very good and well balanced pumpkin ale. Very enjoyable. Nice to know you are drinking beer from fresh pumpkins.
