3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark burnt orange-reddish body. White head, one finger.
Rich creamy pumpkin spiciness, alcohol. Mmmmm. I like how this one smells.
Verrrry toasty and sweet. Good balance between the spice and pumpkin flavor. Sweet, but not terribly cloying. Medium bodied, light carbonation.
Not too shabby. I wouldn’t say it beats out Pumking, but this stuff is tasty and cheap. Get you some.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 11/21/12: Brown/copper color with a finger of creamy khaki head. Actually smells like pumpkin with the spices being less prevalent than is typical for this style. Tastes a little more vegetal than spicey. Pumpki, bready malt, and florals. Typical spices; nutmeg seems to stand out here.

Bottle. Pours deep amber with a big beige head and sticky lacing. Lightly sweet and pumpkiny up front, which quickly yields to spices, bready and lightly toasted malts, and faint hops. Finishes with fresh pumpkin, and more spices. Solid stuff.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler pour. Appears in the glass as a deep amber with decent head. Smell is heavy pie spice (nutmeg, cinnamon) with pumpkin. Tast is initiailly quite sweet but is rounded out by the fullness of the pumpkin and spices. Lingers a bit spicy. Not as full as some other heavy as some other sweet pumpking beers which is why I thought this was quite nice.
