3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from SL. Poured with a red-amber color, decent initial sized head. The aroma was spices and pumkin as expected. The flavor actually featured the pumpkin with the spices not overwhelming this thing. It also wasn’t sweet or cloying, probably a little light in flavor and body overall, finishing somewhat dry. A decent pumpkin ale.

Bottle picked up at SL, thanks to matt for the rec. Pours a red color, with out much head.... Smells decent, light pumpkin, spices, nutmeg and cinnamon. Nice pumpkin beer... not sweet or overly spiced.. Strong pumpkin notes with cinnamon and spices in the background, a little warming from the alcohol. Medium body... Nice pumkin beer, very enjoyable

355mL courtesy of tastybeer. Poured a clear deep ruby red with a massive tan head. Good retention. No lace. Huge pumpkin pie nose and taste. Rich. Eventually becomes a clear red syrup with no head. Nose is strawberry candy, some fall spices, big nutmeg, gingerbread. Taste is spot on: sweet, rich, creamy pumpkin pie, lots of spices. Full bodied and spot on for pumpkin beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark Amber like Arizona clay...wirey, cream colored head. Medium bodied, slightly flat, spices liven it up a tad.
Nose: Heavy on spices, more nutmeg than cinnamon. Light showing of true, not sweet, pumpkin.
Taste: Pumpkin, then NUTMEG, then pumpkin. A true pumpkin, not in the pumpkin pie family.The nutmeg is totalitarian.

Draught at Churchkey. Clear brown, no head, no lacing. Aroma is subtle spice. Taste is chewy, warm pumpkin pie with a dollop of cream on top. Not usually my thing, but this is one of the best tasting pumpkin beers I have ever had.

Only sampled from a 12oz. bottle. Poured a clear, dark copper color, small white head. Aroma is spice: nutmeg, cinnamon. Also smelled a bready, almost like pie crust. Flavor was a bit sweet, relatively balanced. Alcohol is well hidden.
