Tap at 23 Craft Beerz. Light on spicing, but a touch there. Medium bodied. Pumpkin taste of course. Malty, light sweetness, caramel. Quite nice, but I’m still not a pumpkin beer person but can hardly hold that against the beer.

Poured from a bottle. Wish the pumpkin was more pronounced, instead some caramel, but sour. Not my favorite.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle, bright orange. Quite a looker. Pours a clear dark amber color with a small white head. A big roasted pumpkin nose. The flavor is mild spices, big fresh pumpkin, the roasted element really comes through like the difference between green peppers and roasted green peppers, very distinct. A bit of malty sweetness. Overall finishes quite spicy. Is this just pumpkin? No way. Good.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This was poured into a snifter and a pint glass.
The appearance was pretty much the same in both - semi-dark brown to red color body with a quickly dissipating foamy bubbly white head. Barely any lacing clung at all.
The smell was sweet bready malty over top of a light seasonal pumpkin spice and ginger to cinnamon spice.
The taste was mainly the same with a light bready to ginger spice aftertaste.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionable quality about it. The carbonation was there and actually seemed a bit higher than most pumpkin ales I’ve had.
Overall, it’s a decent pumpkin ale but for the price I’d rather go after other pumpkin ales before this.
