3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
BBD 1/16/16. Clear amber pour with a normal head volume, outstanding retention and world class lacing.
Outstanding nose of pumpkin and spice with a touch of biscuit.
Heavy light body with a semi-smooth texture. Above normal carbonation with a fair amount of effervescence in the middle and a nice burst in the finish.
The flavor profile is borderline very good. Intensity is reasonable, not very complex and a bit out of balance. Cinnamon is a bit out of balance due to it lacking a balancing sweetness. It begins with cinnamon then flows into pumpkin. The middle takes on a pumpkin rind bitterness coupled with cinnamon. The finish is a slow fade of rind and cinnamon bitterness.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle pours an orange brown color with a finger and a half of off-white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is pumpkin with some herbs and cinnamon and nutmeg. Taste is a fruity and malty sweetness with a herbal hop bitterness. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Enjoyable brew as it does not have any flavours that stand out from the rest. Very well balanced and tasty. One of my favorite pumpkin ales to date.

Poured from bottle orange brown with a two finger foamy off white head. Aromas of cinnamon clove and caramel malt. It’s a beer with pumpkin pie spice. It’s good for what it is but needs actual pumpkins next time.

Taster at the source. Not too excited about a pumpkin brew, but it is a new tick, and it is a free sample. Pours orange brown with an off white head. Aroma is caramel, malt, cinnamon, clove. Yeah, it’s a beer with pumpkin pie spice. Not bad, I suppose. Caramel, pine hop, cinnamon, clove. The hop bitterness is about equal to the pie spice. Interesting.

Spicy, light veggie pumpkin aroma and flavour. Lighter copper caramel malt body. A hint of sweet, sugary pumpkin pie. Malty, light bitterness, just okay

Bottle at Shades of Green...one that survived the crash. Clear bronze color with a bubbly, khaki head that lasts. Sweet aroma of roasted pumpkin pie. Balanced flavor with good spice but also some perfumey sweetness. Pretty nice.
