2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a clear, deep gold with a high, fine-grained, off-white, lacy head. Nose is yeast, cinnamon, nutmeg, and some adjunct and creamed corn. More cinnamon on the nose -- really overwhelming, almost into cinnamon-toast land. There is some pumpkin flavor there as well. Finish is long and a little fake-cinnamon-candy. Itís all right, but the fauxnamon really overshadows anything else. I think that someone needs to look up the word ísubtleí in the dictionary again.

Very nice. For 2014, the ABV is 4.5%. The flavor suggests otherwise. Beautiful nutmeg and pumpkin-oriented notes. A great session pumpkin ale.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a lighter amber color with off-white head. Some pumpkin pie spice on the nose with a weird note I canít place; same for the palate. Not very well done IMHO.

"Subtle spiced flavor" my ass. Big cinnamon and vanilla notes. Nothing really pumpkin about it, other than I suppose it reminds me slightly of pumpkin pie. Largely meh.

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Served on draft at Buffalo Brew Pub (Buffalo NY). Light appearance with thin, quickly dissipating head. All spice on the nose; very little pumpkin aroma. Tastes like a pumpkin pie candle smells - not natural at all. Extremely thin body, crackly carbonation. This is not a good example of a pumpkin ale, and I do not recommend it.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap... with cinnamon rim (donít judge me). Needs it to be honest. Nice darkish orange-amber, nice head... but almost thin body with supremely mild taste.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden and clear appearance white a small white head. Malty, doughy, pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg aroma. Carbonation and citrus that fades quick are my first taste. Strong cinnamon, spices, dough, with some pumpkin with an unusual after taste, no bad though. Light and crisp. Good beer

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a bright amber colour with a medium head which dissipated rather quickly. Spiced aroma rivals that of a cider. Flavor is full of spices, particularly notes nutmeg and cinnamon. Not a lot of pumpkin flavor in this brew. Decent carbonation and smooth drink.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber orange pour. Nose of fruity pumpkin, mild spice and faint vanilla. Flavor is mildly sweet pumpkin meat with some spice. Light and easy drinking. Not sure why all the negative rates. Very light but solid and poundable.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This is a pretty basic pumpkin beer. Watery aromas of subtle spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, clove). Not a lot going on with the flavor,very little pumpkin flavor. Not a bad there are many better pumpkin beers than this.
