Sampled at Real Beer Expo (Rochester). Nice dark amber colour with little -to-no head. Vanilla, caramel, warm/sweet spices on an overall sweet nose. Fairly heavy mouthfeel and sharp carbonation. Definite clove and nutmeg finish, a mild aftertaste and sl. sourness.

Nice light brown/amber color,small off white head that had a decent hang time then faded to leave nothing behind.The aroma was not as bad as my last punkin ale.This one had a nice but still mild spice with a bit of maltiness.The flavor was pretty decent,Nice spicy side all around with a bit of caramel and a slight bitter finish.Mostly you get alot of spice throughout the tasting and little else,Very nice brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
served at NYC Brewtopiafest. pours a golden orange body that looks more amber towards the top third of the glass. little bubbly white head. smells sweet and of pumpkin. tastes sugary, of pumpkin of course, some cinnamon, a hint of cloves and nutmeg (nice touch!) and a little bit of vanilla. I did not expect to like this but it was refreshing, and sweet but not overly-so. I’m a fan of pumpkin ales now for sure.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium body that I wish would accompany most pumpkin brews. Lots of spice, little cinnamon, and a touch of clove. Pretty good, and easily one of the best pumpkin beers I’ve ever had.

Very dark copper/mahogany with no head whatsoever. Aroma and flavor both dominated by spice and nothing else. Allspice and clove the most prominent. Body is thin. Vanilla and residuel sugar in the finish.

Caramel colored beer with a big bubbled beige head when poured out of the bottle. Light nose of spice. Typical spiced pumkin ale, with lots of cinnamon and clove flavors. Caramel sweetness, with the vanilla coming out in the finish. This is my first pumpkin beer of the season, and it reminds me why I like this beer.
