2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. The pour was a sparkling clear light amber with an average sized (1-2 finger) white fizzy head that quickly dissipated and had almost no lacing to speak of.
The aroma was extremely light of a light bread malt and a doughy yeast with very mild hints of nutmeg, pumpkin, cinnamon and some brown sugar.
The taste was super lightly sweet with an almost non existent hint of nutmeg and brown sugar at first. Then it became ever so lightly bitter with a hint of cinnamon and a light touch of pumpkin at the finish, with the flavor disappearing almost immediately after the swallow.
Mouthfeel was incredibly light in body and very watery in texture with a fizzy carbonation.
Overall an extremely light beer with the flavor being very subtle with no lingering effect at all. For a Pumpkin Ale the aroma was nice and well balanced, but it lacked slightly in flavor and body.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a great pumpkin aroma.
Appearance- Pours a golden amber with an off-white head.
Taste- I love the pumpkin flavor of this brew. I noticed many donít care for it. I donít understand.
Palate- A light to medium bodied brew with moderate carbonation.
Overall- One of my favorite pumpkin beers

I could only get this in the canned variety. And I love almost most things pumpkin! Not sure if the bottle version is better but this was a major let down, very frothy, a lot of spice notes but a horrible artificial follow through... the end.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Easily worst beer of Maine trip. Didnít even finish bottle at home. Pours light, wimpy orange- slightly hazy. No lasting head or lacing. Pumpkin pie faux spices dominate- nutmeg, cinnamon, clove. Minimal pumpkin. Bit metallic. Super light mouthfeel. Not much going for it. Meh.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cinnamon anyone? Balance isnít whatís necessarily expected sometimes with a pumpkin ale, and this one follows suit. Sweet and spicy smelling, light amber color with a nice off-white head with medium bubbles. I was not kidding about the cinnamon: thereís a lot. So if you like cinnamon and pumpkin flavor, thisíll be your bag. If not, not. I liked it just fine.

This light gold beer has a mild cinnamon spice aroma. It is mildly spicy while retaining many characteristics of your typical wheat beer.

Pours a bubbly straw with a white head. Aroma is of spice, light pumpkin, and corn. Tastes of light pumpkin, pumpkin pie spices, and straw. A bit lager like. Has a light body with high carbonation and smooth spice aftertaste.

A bit watery but it makes up for it with a nice spicy flavor. More of a summery beer than fall.
