3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a nice pilsner-looking straw colored beer with a thin white head. Strong cinnamon nose and full allspice. Hot on the tongue with some bitterness..or is that the cinnamon? A bit of vanilla. Dusty on the palate. A nice pumpkin.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2005 Bottle. Aroma features pumpkin, cinammon, and other harvest spices. Pours a clear gold, with a nice head, good carbonation, and slight lacing. Flavor is straight pumpkin with a smidgen of cinammon and nutmeg. Palate is a bit watery, but the taste hides it. The best pumpkin ale I’ve had by far.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2006 [At Stockholm Beer Festival 2005] A hazy orange beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of cinnamon and pumpkin - both very powerful notes. The flavor is sweet and again with powerful notes of cinnamon and pumpkin, but the body is thin. To me this is a Christmas beer - drink it with spiced Christmas cookies.

4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2005 Aroma is splendid, perhaps the best of a pumpkin ale I’ve come across. Just like worn by the women of Egypt such as Nefertiti the queen -- the aroma boasts of high-quality ladie’s perfume. Appearance is nice and solid, impressive for a Halloween offering. Flavor is similar to the aroma but much more along the lines of conventional pumpkin; could use more hops for backup, and perhaps some additional malt. Spritely and bubbly in the mouth, as if to toast the fattening holidays to come. One of the better pumpkin brews for sure!
