4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
2012 bottle. Pours a deep orange with blink-and-youíll-miss-it lacing. Roasted pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla, pie dough baking in the oven and some caramel all swirl together for a very sweet aroma. Big pumpkin taste with a pinch of nutmeg and a bit of bitter cinnamon. Slightly sticky texture with a great lingering aftertaste. Easily one of the best pumpkin beers out there.†

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is my final fall beer in the fridge. Bomber into goblet, clear dark orange-amber color with thin off-white head. Aroma of roasted malt, pumpkin pie and spices (nutmeg and cinnamon mainly). Taste is much the same, sweeter then aroma led on. Medium body, low carbonation and smooth. I can see why this is so popular, heavy pumpkin pie taste without being too heavy a beer. I shall try this again next year!

2012 Vintage. Pumpkin orange in color. Clear. Some head. Very dominating pumpkin smell. Tons of all spice. Nutmeg. Very sweet. I donít like pumpkin but this is really good...just a tad too sweet. Iím surprised at the alcohol content, itís so flavorful it tastes like a soda.

Nice pumpkin ale from Southern Tier. Slightly sweet, not to spicey and a medium pumpkin flavor compared to other pumpkin beers Iíve tried. Pumpkin cotton candy in a bottle. I recommend.

Dark amber body with some eggshell head. Nose is big time pumpkin spices - cinnamon, caramel. Flavor doesnít quite live up to the nose but still a good pumpkin ale. ABV becomes apparent as it warms.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650ml bottle, bottled 06/06/12. Reviewed from notes. Clear orange pour with a small off-white head. A real interesting sweet nose with notes of oreos, mint, slightly herbal, hints of grain and some finnish bundt cake. Taste follows the nose with earthy hoppiness balancing the sweetness nicely. Low to medium carbonation, smooth palate. My first pumpkin ale and Iím glad I shared the bottle - no way I could drink a lot of this on my own. Interesting.

Bottle from the Brother - had this one a while ago, leans more towards the pumpkin pie spices end of this more than the pumpkin itself. I liked it!

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours orange golden with an airy head. Aroma is roasted malts with lots of fruity, almost tropical, sweetness. Flavour is sweet and fruity with orange, ginger, lots of spiciness and an alcohol sweetness to end the mighty weirdness.
