3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Purchased at Vas Foremost in Chicago, IL, enjoyed after a long work week before my band plays a show tonight. Appearance is a dark red/amber with almost no head. Aroma of pumpkin, spices, a touch of sweetness, pretty nice. Taste is pretty smooth, nothing really pops out from this one, it’s an easy drinker with pumpkin flavoring, light to medium body, medium carbonation, moderate sweetness. Pretty solid.

Not sure what I was expecting from SA when I bought the harvest case. Poured a copper color, decent foamy tan head. Aroma was spicy and malty. Flavor was good, decent spice to, cinnamon and clove not overly done either. Medium mouthfeel and a lightly lingering spice finish. Overall I enjoyed this and it exceeded my expectations..

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
copper-brown pour - aroma of yeast and malt with slight pumpkin spice (very slight) - very sweet taste with an almost sticky mouth feel with strong notes of pumpkin pie spice, malt and these tastes linger for quite some time - normally I guess I would think this too strong but if one was in the right mood it is actually pretty good

12 oz bottle. Really enjoyable pumpkin ale. Pours rich copper in color with a pure white head. Kind of middle of the road in the way of alcohol, great pumpkin spice aroma, rich maltiness, silky mouthfeel, zesty finish.
