3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Unlike other pumpkin beers I’ve had, this one has a much lighter aroma. There’s a hint of pumpkin and a touch of spice (cinnamon, nutmeg). It’s an attractive beer. Golden-orange body that is slightly cloudy. A fine white head clings nicely to the glass. The palate is relatively light. The flavor stands out a bit more than the aroma. I can taste the sweetness of the pumpkin, tempered by the bite of the cinnamon and nutmeg. It’s a very drinkable beer that is lighter than the average pumpkin brew. Another thumbs up for AB. Nice effort.

From a bottle. Pours opaque orange copper with a thin white head. Tastes like sweet wheat, malt, pumpkin, light spice. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like sweet pumpkin syrup and bready malt.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
This beer exhibits very little pumpkin aroma if any with a head that dissipated in less than 10 seconds. While it has a beautiful pumpkinesque color it comes across as a sub-par pumpkin beer with very mild spicing.

There’s a random number on bottle neck indicating date, I don’t care enough to research this.
A: Pours a turbid autumnal ruddy orange with limited ethereal head production. A translucent sheet of taupe foam remains. Spotty lace.
S: Lots of allspice and nutmeg with some sour seedy characters. A bit of the yeast remains in there as well.
T: Toasty with a graham cracker tone and again, plenty of nutmeg. Some cinnamon and bready tones.
M: Medium bodied with really hi carb and a semi-dry finish.
O: Meh. Same stuff, different bottle. Hard to find a really good pumpkin IMO.
