3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark hazy copper amber with a short lived medium beige head. There is an essence of pumpkin and vegetable along with some mild notes of sweet spice and maple. Taste is sweet flavors a spices and some bit of malt with some bitterness. Palate is a medium body with moderate carbonation. The finish is same as taste, a combination of sweet spices, squash pumpkin vegetable and mild bitterness on the end. A bit strong ( on the alcohol ). Malt and maple flavor is weak. Overall though just an OK brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours reddish orange w/ a nice white head that leaves spotty lacing. The aroma is a blend of spice & the alcohol potency. The taste is pretty sweet & pumpkin pie like w/ just a hint of alcohol at the finish. A complex & all around very nice pumpkin!

Bottle. Amber pour with a quick deminishing head. Aromas of maple syrup, caramel, cinnamon, and clove. Flavor is cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, and caramel. Nice and drinkable. Not overpowering at all, just the right amount of spice. Good brew

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
A bit spicier than the other imperial pumpkin ales I’ve tried, less of a cinnamon bomb that things like pumpking.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle). Pours a hazy orange-amber with large diminishing white head. The aroma is pumpkin, alcohol and allspice. Flavors are pumpkin with warming alcohol and some spices. Minimal to no maple flavor noted, disappointing from this brewer. Would be an excellent choice for a cold, late autumn day---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smells like squash casserole. Doesn’t really taste like either pumpkin or maple. Would go well with the Jones Soda Thanksgiving dinner series.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle from a Kroger. Pours a hazy amber color with a large foamy white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of pale malts, mild pumpkin, mild spice. The taste is pumpkin, apple, berries, mild spice. Medium bodied, delicate and not boozy at all for an imperial. Smells kinda blah but the rest of the package is thankfully fairly nice. Decent beer.
