2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. The pour was a cloudy medium brownish amber with an average sized (1-2 finger) foamy very, very pale orange head that lasted throughout and had excellent lacing that coated the glass.
The aroma was of a light bread malt and a sweet yeast with notes of brown sugar, nutmeg cinnamon and a strong hint of some bitter spices.
The taste was sweet and mildly acidic with a note of cinnamon and brown sugar at first then became mildly bitter with a note of nutmeg and spices with a harsh bite of pumpkin rind at the finish. The flavor lasted an average duration but left a not so likeable harshness at the end.
Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and creamy in texture with a mild carbonation.
Overall not your typical Pumpkin Ale. I found it rather bland with too much of a bitter bite at the end and not enough flavor from the spices or the pumpkin.

Pours a hazy dark amber from a bottle. Immediately cloying "pumpkin spice" smell, not sure where the pumpkin flavor is, I’m not getting it. For shame New England based Smuttynose. Tastes like a spiced rum drink. Blech. Should be noted, this was stuck in a surprise sample 12 pack from the local bottle store, a little disappointed because it’s past the drink by date, they’re totally just offloading their shelf turds.

Bottle. Hazy dark orange with small off-white foamy head, cinnamon- pumpkin aroma, high carbonation, faint pumpkin and spice flavor, slightly metallic sweetish taste, medium finish with pumpkin aftertaste. Not bad but not special either.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Flaska från SB. Bärnstensfärgad med en lite orangeare ton, klar, lågt skum. Lätt kryddig doft med främst kanel och muskot, lite aningen tvålig pumpa. Lite tvålig parfymerad smak, kryddor, pumpkin paj. Funkar väl men som oftast med pumpaöl är idén bättre än smaken.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out light pumpkin spices -- very simple and uninteresting. Flavour is simplistic, with spicy autumn notes (cinnamon and nutmeg) and not much else. What the hell are they going for? Pointless beer.
