Hmmmm, not sure on this one. I expected to really taste the pumpkin and spice but it was very subtle. I like the respect for beer. This isn't a pumpkin dink with beer, but a decent beer with a hint of pumpkin.

Amber pour with little aroma. Slight spice flavor with little pumpkin anywhere to be found. Decent ale with an off flavor. I wouldnít drink this one again.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Very little aroma. Very high in carbonation, which is the dominant feature. To me, the flavor is not as bold or spicy as Iíve read, but there are some harvest related flavors in there, just more subtle. A fine beer to drink casually in season, especially with food, but not if you really want a unique fall flavor.

Clear red with tan head. Malty dark fruit aroma. Pumpkin spice flavor with a fruity tartness. Light bodied and watery. Might be better if it wasnít so watery and had a fuller flavor.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear medium-to-deep amber with a short finger of white head diminishing rapidly to nothing, no lacing. Nose is pumpkin and spice, brown sugar. Taste is sweet and spicy pumpkin, brown sugar, mild bitter. Medium to full body, moderate to high sustained carbonation, and a somewhat sticky finish.
Well, Iíll be: a pumpkin ale that isnít terrible - will wonders never cease? This just might be the best pumpkin ale Iíve ever tried! (Not that that bar was set all that high, mind you, but stillÖ) Decently spicy, with a fairly good pumpkin flavour. Itís a bit too sweet, and that adversely affects the finish, but not bad at all. Ultimately, I wouldnít say no to another - and I think thatís the first time Iíve said that about a pumpkin ale.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear deep amber, very thin tan head, light thin lacing. Aroma pumpkin, slight roast, cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar. Taste sweet pumpkin, roast malt, almost a marshmallow flavor, cinnamon and nutmeg dominate the slightly spicy finish. Mouthfeel towards the full end of medium body, low carbonation, slight spicy bite, mostly sweet finish, although spice lends a bit of balance. Overall nice beer, similar to most pumpkin beers, but a bit fuller and has the slight roasted pumpkin and marshmallow note, would be a good beer around a crisp fall camp fire.
