3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I’m not the biggest Pumpkin ale fan but they are hard to avoid this time of year. My wife buys them more than me and she got this one. However I don’t think she realized it was a 9% abv. and had to share a bit with me. The aroma has a faint spicy aroma. The flavor is filled with spice, sweetness, and obviously pumpkin flavor. Their is a pleasant gala apple souriness to it. I like this pumpkin ale a lot and am glad it is overly sweet like some pumpkin ales i have had. I find a bit off alcohol heat in the finish which is pleasant with the complex spiciness.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a slightly hazy copper with a small white head and a little bit of lace. Aroma is spicy, nutmeg, cloves, all spice, pumpkin pie filling, cinnamon, and some caramel malty backbone. Flavour is nutmeg, cinnamon, all spice, light alcohol as it warms, caramel, and mild pumpkin pie filling. Nice balance for a 9 point beer!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear orangish Auburn color with a frothy white head. Aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin, yam, allspice and sweet malt. Taste is pumpkin, steamed yam, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and a nice natural taste into the finish. Medium high body with a touch of alcohol but overall very smooth for its high abv.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy rusty orange color. Spicy sweet aroma. Taste- rich, malty and spicy. Cinnamon, nutmeg and vegetal flavors. Grassy bitterness cuts the sweetness a bit. One of the finer pumpkin ales I've had.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Soft, distinctly honey and vanilla aroma with caramel
Reminds me of Bit-o-honey candies. Clear gold, tight ivory head. Lightly spicy, low bittering, cookieish. Lightish body. Boozy. Meh.
