4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Reviewed from notes: Pours a nice clear amber color with light white head. Flowery, piney, and citrusy on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied, yet full. Finishes with some nice hop resin.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reviewed from notes. Consumed October 28, 2012.
Best by December 2012 on the bottom of the can.
Into a pint glass.
The appearance was a light brown close to tan colored body that gave a beautiful foamy one finger white head and had some nice spotty yet foamy lacing. The body was too hazy for any carbonation to be seen rising.
The smell had some spicy hops up front coming in very strong. There was no pumpkin whatsoever.
The taste was extremely hoppy, yet good, some nice citric fruits came out.
The palate was a medium with some slight sharpness here and there on the tongue. There was a likable dry aftertaste. It was mildly sessionable
Overall, this was a good American Pale Ale.

No spice in clear amber brew. Autumn hops were flavorful. Nice head on average body brew.

The aroma is clean and flat. Hazy amber color. Healthy white head. Funny veggy taste.. malt, sirt, old veggie and bitterness. What kind of beer is this supposed to be?

Pours quite nice - rustic orange w/ a big frothy head that leaves plenty of lacing. The aroma is much too faint because this beer has very good flavor. I don’t get any pumpkin but more of a quality esb. Reminds me a lot of southern tier harvest. Pretty good!

So, this just showed up on the shelves... unfortunately this is last years stock. This beer tastes like bitter ass pennies. It is pretty awful. I am losing respect for ray?s wine and spirits more and more lately. The can has a best by date of 8 months ago. I bought this beer because it is coming into season ... Oktoberfest is showing up on shelves. Don?t buy this if the bottom of the can shows an expired date!

Obviously out of season, which probably didn’t help. Is this really a spice / herb / vegetable, because I get no hint of anything but hops, and not particularly good ones at that. Might try a fresh one in the fall... Might not.

16oz can - pours pale amber with ivory head and decent lacing. Nose is resin and pine. Flavor adds pumpkin spice (or some other holiday spice), grass and caramel. moderate to heavy bitter with some sweetness. Metallic aftertaste. Added hoppiness does improve the style. Latent grapefruit aftertaste.
