4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma: Pumpkin readily apparent, with hints of caramel malts and edges of floral hops.
Appearance: Clear amber with rocky tan head.
Taste: Light to medium sweetness with hints of bitterness at the edges to balance.
Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation, long finish.
Overall: It’s a very solid beer. The pumpkin is there, but not overwhelming, and it doesn’t try to imitate a pumpkin pie by overloading the beer with spices. It’s really well balanced and enjoyable to drink.

Bottle. Pour is a brown amber. Aroma of pumpkin (faintly), caramel, floral hops, nutmeg, spices. Taste is sweet with a medium to thin body. It is a bit to carbonated for my taste. A bit like a brown ale but with pumpkin flavor.

750 bottle- Pours slightly hazy amber with a one finger head that reduces. Aroma is pumpkins, cinnamon and other spices too, but more just fresh pumpkin. The taste is the same, pumpkin, pumpkin pie spices, roasted character, moderately dry finish. Very solid pumpkin beer!

Nice nutty roasted pumpkin aroma. Taste reminds me of a pumpkin brown ale maybe? The pumpkin blends well with the malt flavors. One of the best I’ve had.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a medium amber color with a finger of foam. The nose is subtle pumpkin pie with a touch of earthy spice and toasted marshmallow. The palate follows the nose with a more restrained pumpkin presence and just a touch of spice. Nice little bitterness cleans up the palate on the finish.
