4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Six pack from Crown Liquor. Pours a light amber with an inch of off-white head with good retention. Nice aroma of cinnamon, squash, and spices. Tastes like a slice of pumpkin pie: allspice, nutmeg, veggie, subtle caramel, metal, even a doughy element that reminds me of pie crust. Vanilla in the finish (whipped cream on top)! Medium carbonation and body. Surely, a great representation of the style and one of my favorites since DFH's Punkin Ale. Excellent.

Bottled. Pours orange in color with an orange/beige head, very nice head, and real nice lacing, Aroma is big pumpkin, cinnamon, sugar, nutmeg. Aroma is excellent. Flavor is pumpkin with the kind of heat you’d expect from a beer this strong. Very nice mouthfeel as well.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled July 23, 2014.
Glass: Firestone Walker reserve tulip.
Appearance: Clear copper reddish with a quickly dissipating light tan head.
Aroma: Clove, cinnamon, nutmeg and apples come to mind. It reminds me more of an apple pie than a pumpkin pie. Aroma is moderate in strength and pleasant.
Taste: The flavor is very reminiscent of cinnamon covered apple sauce. Not that it’s a bad thing at all, but this doesn’t remind me of pumpkins.
Palate: Medium bodied mildly carbonated.
Overall: Blind taste I would call this an apple sauce beer. Open eyed I still say the same. This isn’t a pumpkin beer, but it’s enjoyable.

Ridiculous aroma... Smells like pumpkin pie and reminds me of Thanksgiving. One of my favorite fall beers. Nice amber color, good rich body but clean finish. Great beer but not meant to be cellared.
