Maine Brewers Festival 2005. Sampled as Kennebunkport Pumpkinhead. Yellow body with a tiny white head. Big spice aroma - nutmeg? Sweet spicey flavour is nice but not very well balanced. Average palate. Needs to bump up the malt and add more (some?) pumpkin. I enjoyed this though, probably more than my ratings reflect.

Aroma like cinamon buns and some other herbs. Nice malty taste with herbal influence. Interesting and moreish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Color is a lot paler than I thought it would be. A light clear gold. The head is a simple white layer of film. The aroma is spicy, but a lot more pumpkiny than I expected. There is a good amount of pumpkin and spice, but not enough body, or depth.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Straw body with a lasting one finger foamy head. Nose-smells like very fresh pumpkin pie-clove, cinamon, apple. Taste-clove, brown sugar, allspice, cinamon, spice, sharp palate. Tastes like a very light pumpkin pie with beer poured over it. Very nice. A very well done pumpkin beer. I like.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Golden color with a moderate dissipating off white head. Snickerdoodle cookie aromas hints of ginger also found in the background. Really nothing but spices adrift in the nose. Weak, thins and fizzy mouth-feel. Tastes have lot of similarities with a spiced cidre. No malt depth. A touch of malt can be detected in the finish, but that’s too late in my book.

i was pleasantly suprised with the taste for this seasonal brew it had a great pumpkin spice flavor. the appearance was also suprising because it was yellow instead of a brownish orange. Overall a good seasonal brew.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle-Surprising in it’s yellow color. Poured with a small head and lots of carbontation and only a little spice aroma. The taste was a real treat, you can actually taste pumpkin! Listed as an ale, but more like a lager, still a happy Halloween treat. Vics 6.99

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I’m not a big fan of this style, but I have tried to rate it in that context. I expected an ornage colr, bu this was actually a rather brilliant yellow with a medium white head. the pumpkin and nutmeg aroma is quite evident. Rather light feeling, with a pronunced pumpkin flavor accompanied by the expected spice notes. Not actually sweet, and the finish is somehwat drier than I expected, although certainly not much hop character apparent. It’s just not my cup of tea, but I think probably pretty decent for the style.

one bottle from BOTW. Light orange in color with a strong Nutmeg and cinnamon aroma. Flavor mostly of nutmeg and cinnamon with a faint amount of pumpkin coming thru as it warms. It was alright. I’ve got a few more pumpkin ales to test by the end of the month.
