3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle from Woodys in Franklin, TN. Pours burnt orange, thin white head and lots of carbonation. Beautiful aroma of pumpkin pie, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Im a sucker for anything pumpkin...there is tons of spicy pumpkin pie flavor here...it would be amazing if not for an offputting metallic aftertaste. The mouthfeel is very nice: medium, warm, and a bit sticky. Overall i like it. And i love pumpkin!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a deep amber brown with a huge creamy light tan head. Aroma is gigantic spice. Much more on the spice side than the pumpkin side which I can appreciate. Lots of ginger, cinnamon, clove and nutmeg, a smörgĺsbord of holiday spice. Almost dusty in the way it pinches the nostrils. Flavor is much more rounded. Lots of sweet pumpkin mixed with the spices and making for a big pumpkin pie and spiced bread flavor. The spices in the nose especially help balanced the sweetness giving it a really nice dessert taste. Medium to full body and a soft carbonation. Really nice pumpkin beer

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle (Bottled with Love on 09 15 2009) served in a shaker. Dark amber pour with a light haze and a thin cap of tan foam. Minimal lacing. The aroma had strong notes of gingerbread and pie spices, also some sweet caramel. Sweet and malty. The flavor was like a gingerbread cookie. A nice mix of cinnamon, nutmeg, and caramel. Surprised that this is 8%. Full-bodied and softly carbonated. The spices run the show in this beer, but it isn’t cloying or annoying. I like it.

Bottle. Poured an amber orange with a darkish off-white head. Aroma was full of pumpkin pie notes with lots of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger accompanying the pumpkin. Flavor mirrors the aroma beautifully. A nice medium mouthfeel makes this by far my favorite pumpkin beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours amber with a mostly receding off-white head. Aroma of nutmeg, cinnamon, toffee. Taste is spicy, phenolic, toffee, gingerbread, nutmeg, and cinaamon. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation. Not bad, but pretty spice centric.

Pours a brilliant red hued amber. Strong aroma of nutmeg, clove, cinnamon. Very spicy and aromatic nose. Initial taste is full of spice. Clove comes through. Nutmeg and cinnamon are more abundant in the finish. Quite spicy and good. Enjoy on a crisp cool evening.

Probably the best pumpkin beer I’ve had thus far this season. Not overly sweet or spicy. Seems to just have the right mix to be very, very drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Has an amber color with a medium off-white head that dissipates quickly. It has a delicious aroma of pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, and a hint of ginger. The taste starts sweet and slowly gets bigger with malty nutmeg finish.
