Bottle @ home, courtesy of some generous trader. Another unfortunate brew that got lost in the back of my parent’s refrigerator. Oh yeah, here goes. Cloudy, reddish orange appearance with a big, bubbly, tan head. Quite spicy, ginger, somewhat piney, toasty malty aroma. Caramel, pumpkin, ginger, richly piney hoppy, toasty malty flavor. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from NY state. Hoppy aroma, light orange coloured body with 3/8" of retained head. Firt I taste the hops, and then the spice in the finish led by ginger and pumpkin. Hoppy pumpkin beer, in a word. Decent drinkability, but not something I will seek out again. Average mouthfeel, above average carbonation.

Tap at Pony. Amber pour topped by a tight creamy head. The aroma is nicely hoppy with a nice fresh maltiness. A little bit herbal and spicy with a nice malt balance. There is also a lovely floral/lavender like character. Fresh and zesty. Tasty stuff

Served on draft at Beer Run. Pours a hazy amber color with a medium creamy white head. Good head retention. Big spicy, peppery hop aroma with faint bits of pumpkin. The taste is huge herbal and peppery hop notes with a mild pumpkin and spice finish. Medium bodied. Doesn’t come across much like a pumpkin ale.
