3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle from holiday wine cellar. pours a light yellow color with no head and just a little bit of lacing. aroma is weak, almost smells like miller lite with a hint of spice (nutmeg, allspice). Flavor is much, much better than the aroma. It’s still kind of mild, but it has nice spice notes to it, including nutmeg, cinammon and all spice. Good beer but I am still on the quest for the fantastic pumpkin ale.

Nice roasted and spicy aroma. Lots of pumpkin, spices, vanilla in the flavor. This was a nice pumpkin beer.

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.

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
