3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours deep copper with a nice off white head. Smells of cinnamon, pimpkins, ntumeg, allpice, and vanilla. Tastes slightly bitter with some decent cinnamon notes. A little watery on the finish. Not a bad attempt, but there are many that are a lot better than this one.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours brown with no head. Armoa of malty beer with some hints of pumpkin. Flavor is full of light spices and pumpkin paste... not a tasty pumpkin brew by any means.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark Tan color, light foamy head that didnít hang out too long in the glass. Not as much of a presence of pumpkin that I thought I would find. The best part of this beer is the light carbination, easy to drink.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Clear, medium caramel hue with a small, off-white, quickly fading foamy head. Starts of smelling of dark bread, caramel, and cinnamon (and other spices) but a few swirls of my glass reveals the aroma of a soggy carpeted basement and damp fireplace ash. A hint of bakery trash dumpster as well. All the bad aromas come out in the flavor plus a bonus of medicinal and solvent tastes. Some cabbage comes into play as it warms. Moderately sweet throughout with a lightly bitter finish. Medium-light body, watery texture, moderate carbonation. Foul.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
How the hell does this one get such a liberal rating, it was pure evil. A very golden brownish clear color with little head. The aroma startedc off with a lot of pumpkin and then turned into dumpster stank. The body though started off as pure garbage, rotten cabbage filth and then had a decent pumpkin spice finish. Nothing from this place impresses me.

This was ok as far as pumpkin ales goes. Nothing crazy, spices and nutmeg, and well, not great.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a medium copper with a very thin head. Aroma is light to medium spiced with all spice, and some nutmeg. Flavor is lightly spiced with some very light caramel malts and a slightly dry clean finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Burnt orange in color, copper hues, one finger frothy off-white head, spotty lacing, very light carbonation. † Soft allspice, almond, and cinnamon nose. † The clove aspect might be the strongest. † Definitely allspice and clove on the tongue, very slight cinnamon, but everything fades pretty fast. † Clean, but just not very robust. † Body and mouthfeel are moderate at best. † Finishes a lot like Red Zinger tea. † As it warms the spices tend to linger a bit longer. † Not bad, but not big enough. † Iíve still got Weyerbacher Imperial Pumpkin on the brain. † Thanks Dan!

Overall a very decent pumpkin ale. The taste was well-balanced between the spiced pumkin pie and sweet malt. Easy drinkin.

Fine pumpkin ale. A solid ale that is good for the season. Not the best, but a good all around brew.
