3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the 2011 Grayson (GA) Beer Festival (from notes).
Hazy orange-amber with a towering off-white head.
Boozy pumpkin pie aroma; some spices but with plenty of actual pumpkin aroma.
Flavor follows aroma but with the alcohol more hidden and the pumpkin less evident and less natural.
Rather thin body; actually somewhat watery.
Disappointing, particularly after having at least 3 fine 2011 pumpkin ales from other brewers.

Pours a hazy amber color with almost no head. A lot of spice and cinnamon flavor. You can definitely taste the pumpkin coming through. Overall this was very good!

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Wine Warehouse, Charlottesville. Clear amber-brown. Tiny dusting of a head. Smells of lovely pumpkin pie: from the pumpkin itself to the crust, to the spices, to the whipped cream. This smells exactly like pumpkin pie. Tastes slightly sweet, rather mellow roasted pumpkin, pie crust, spices - tastes like the pie bubbled on top and started to crisp/burna bit.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 ounce bottle from Beer Run. Pours a clear copper color with a thin fizzy off-white head. Poor head retention. Aroma of pumpkin, spice, citrus and a bit of caramel. The taste is earth, pumpkin, muddled spice, a bit of toastiness. Thin bodied, almost watery. Meh.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma all spice. Pours a nice orange with little head retention. Taste pumkin, all spice, cinnamon, astrigent, kinda soapy quality. Close to being pretty good i think somethings a little overdone.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Solid. Nice spice aroma, following through on taste, accompanied by the requisite pumpkin notes. Good malt base. Nothing here to call out as exquisite, but nothing to complain about either. Just good. B.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a very slightly hazy dark amber color with a moderate off-white head on it. Nose has a lot of the traditional fall spices in there, with cloves and nutmeg showing through. Taste is a little sweet and definitely spicy, and exactly what I dislike in pumpkin beers. Thank god my wife loves them.
