2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Clear amber color with very thin offwhite head. Aroma was weak grain and bready malt. Flavor was very spicy up front. Reminds me of cinnimon candy. Not sure what the relation to pumpkin here is other than maybe the spice ingredients of a pumpkin pie. But, I did like the spicy notes, as I have not a had a beer quite like it. I didn’t hate it. No other remarkable flavor components. Spicy and not much else.

I drank a 1 oz sample of this brew under the KBC Pumpkin Ale alias at Trader Joe’s. Golden orange pour. Mostly spicy aroma with some gourd. Pumpkin taste is actually pretty light, the autumnal spices are highlighted more. Definitely some pumpkin pie characteristics. Average carbonation and texture. As far as seasonal offerings of this variety go, this is what you would expect - no more, no less.

Light golden pour. More spice notes than flavor here. Lots more herbal notes than pumpkin notes in the nose and palate. Carbonated finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a 12 ounce can (cold) into a clear glass tumbler; a thin, faint aroma of autumn spices; cloudy gold and orange coloring’s; super thin head; pumpkin pied and nutmeggish flavors. Overall, s’not at all bad; a pumpkin ale that could be enjoyed at any time, but especially with fall and winter sensibilities.
