2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured from the bottle into a pint glass to sample. The beer had a very clear, light gold color with a big foamy white head that had great retention, but average cling and lacing. Its aroma features notes of cinnamon, spice, and pumpkin, along with other light fruit tones, but was a bit muted. The taste was only lightly sweet with a big sour pumpkin component and a touch of grain. The body was a touch dry with a very low carbonation and flat body, but was a bit thick and filling. Thanks for sharing, Mike and Kristin.

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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
From Trader Joe in Vegas under the name KBC Pumpkin Ale. Pours a clear golden-orange colour with an average head that does not leave much. Aromas and flavours are like pumpkin pie. Nutmeg spices and some nice sweetness in the taste. Like pumpkin pie in a glass. Does get a little rich, but a pretty nice pumpkin ale overall.

Better in cans. Have drank a lot of this beer for years. I know this beer is sub par, but I do enjoy it for what it is and it’s so easy to chug. It pours light in color. The aroma is honey, vanilla and pumpkin pie. Body is very light. Flavors of honey, spices, ginger ale, molasses and creamy light finish. Glug glug yum yum

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
DATE TASTED: November 20, 2015 ... GLASSWARE: Hobgoblin pint... OCCASION: a Shark Tank double feature... APPEARANCE: pale orange body that sports reasonable bubbles; the white head holds steady while thinning out to a hazy, uneven circle... AROMA: cinnamon and nutmeg are up close and personal--where is the pumpkin? the label says as much, but the maltiness is a bit off-putting... PALATE: thin, fizzy at the start, and swift in its finish... the sizzle about the tongue is easy-drinking, but also not befitting an ale...TASTE: bland, malt-heavy lagerish profile with some spiciness but no pumpkin detected; a medicinal finish is prevalent; not memorable or strong in its profile... OVERALL: I pounded at least eight of these at Sara and Brett’s wedding a few weeks ago, and it was nice having something with a little dimension to drink at a formal event; at home, in a controlled environment, this beer needs an experience to qualify its drinking; otherwise, it is a flat, weak, slammable seasonal ...
