2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Copper with huge pumpkin aroma. Big vanilla in the first sip. Medium bodied and creamy like texture. Barrel aged like flavor, prob from the large amount of vanilla and caramel. Alcohol is well masked. Caramel is also big in the finish. Just too much malt sweetness for me.

Poured from a 22 oz bomber with Thangiving dessert. Pours a reddish orange with a small tan head with very little lacing. Aroma is of pumpkin meat, pie spices, caramel, sweet malts, vanilla, and cinnamon. Taste is sImilar to the atom wih some nice pumpkin and pie crust notes. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a slighty dry, medium finish. Overall, a very nice pumpkin ale that went we’ll with the pumpkin pie.

22oz bottle share compliments of Dave F., Thanksgiving 2013. Golden hue wth mostly diminishing white head, virtually no lacing. The pumpkin and spice hue punch you in the nose even before you pour this into a glass. Heavy pumpkin, spice & nutmeg greet your taste buds in the best way possible, the moderate average finish is just as enjoyable. I thought DFH Punkn was my favorite pumpkin beer, not anymore. Best spice/pumpkin beer I have had so far!

Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma of pumpkin, spices, hint of cinnamon. Sweet flavour, pumpkin pie. Light astringent. Malty finish with strong notes of pumpkin pie spices. Not a big fan of this type of beer I guess.

Good god, this is awful. I’ve had it several times at the request of the millions of people who adore this beer. I can say, without hesitation, that this is the single most terrible beer I’ve ever tasted. That bitter spicy thing makes me vomit in my mouth, and ironically, the vomit improves the flavor of this beer substantially.
The emperor not only has no clothes, but is drunk on the floor masturbating in the spice aisle of an Aldi.

This one is a real cracker. Perfect combination of sweetness and spices. The colour of the beer when it´s in the glass is just lovely. What king? Pumking!!

The aroma is invigorating on this, the best pumpkin ale I’ve tasted! The delicious pumpkin flavor is strong yet tasteful. Vibrant color and brief foamy head upon pouring. Nice, light, and delightful!

Meh not the best. Very thin and light in look and color. Leaves a metallic taste in your mouth. Too spicy and sweet in comparison to other pumpkin ales. Not the best.

Zzt’13, dankzij Arjan. Oranje heldere kleur. Ruikt en smaakt naar appeltaart, kaneel, kruidig. Apart bier.

Bottle @ ZZT 8 shared by Abijen. Clear golden color, small white head that diminishes quickly. Smell sweetness, apple pie. Taste apple pie, sweetness, herbs, weirdness. Yuk, totally not my thing at all.
