bottle. Pours out a deep amber almost brown color, transparent, off white head. Pleasant spicy aroma, allspice, cinnamon. Fairly malty up front with notes of vanilla and spice, kind of bready. Medium bodied, easy drinking. Actually not that bad, not overly spicy or all that bland.

*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.

Middle of the road pumpkin ale, if you asked me. Subtle spices. Easy drinking beer.
