Bottle into a goblet. Pour is honey color with a fine head. Aroma is a malt pumpkin hop combo that smells like a nice cup of holiday tea. Taste is a very nice warm bitter pumpkin malt. Finish is a great warm malt. This is a great beer.

*Old rating. 2010. The beer is spicy, malty-fresh, slightly sweetish and not too pumpkin-like. Interesting, but a bit strange...

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours from a bottle a nice amber with a thin white head with large bubbles. Nose is heavy spice, not much pumpkin, lots of allspice and cloves. Flavor is again light on pumpkin and with rather off-tasting spices. Finish is bitter, unpleasantly so. Meh.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
It pours a orange amber color. The head leads lacing on the side with large bubbles as part of the head. It has the smell of pumpkin, a bit of all spice, and a bit of cinnamon. It has a pumpkin taste with a bit of cinnamon. The taste is not overly strong, but is decent. It has a bit more carbonation which tingles on the palate.

Bottle from CBB in November 2012, rated from notes. A brownish amber pour for a nice mildly spiced ale. But I couldn’t detect any pumpkin flavor.

2.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Middle of the road pumpkin ale, if you asked me. Subtle spices. Easy drinking beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bouteille du mix-pack d’automne. Une robe cuivrée avec une mousse beige. Un nez épicé classique avec une touche de grain. Une bouche épicée avec du pain mouillé. Correct.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
This beer has a reddish gold appearance. The aroma is not the best on the nose and the taste is just ok.
