3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle, $8.99. Poured into tumbler. Transparent orange; medium-thin, fluffy, white head becomes absolutely nothing over an hour. Aroma pumpkin and pie spice, caramel, bread. Flavor exhibits more pumpkin than any other pumpkin beer I’ve had, along with some nice sweetness and pie spice, but not remotely nearly as cloying as Southern Tier’s like-bottled Crème Brulée. Medium to almost-medium-full body with medium stickiness. This didn’t quite live up to the "just like pumpkin pie" I’d been led to believe, but it’s the closest beer yet, and it’s certainly the best pumpkin beer I’ve had by a longshot.

Smells like fall and happiness! Sugar, caramel, vanilla, pumpkin pie, cinnamon, nutmeg, mace, allspice. Taste is pretty much the same. Smooth, sweet, velvety. Tastes like desert. Really awesome pumpkin beer!

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Dense & vibrant copper-amber color with a thin layer of bubbles resting softly on top, no enough to be called a "head". Aroma with heavy notes of pumpkin spice, cinnamon bread, toasted malts, nutmeg, & I get a very, very light hint of vanilla. Touch of earthiness from the hops, too. Taste is more of the same; the pumpkin spice explosion you’d expect, nutmeg, cinnamon, a little clove. Perhaps some ginger, too, but nutmeg seems to be the dominant spice in this beer. Yeasty & toasted, baked bread finish, a little astringent at times. A decent pumpkin beer, but I don’t know why people flip their ship over this beer’s release each year. I mean, it’s decent, but not the first pumpkin beer I’d ever reach for.

22 oz bottle. Pours a clear copper orange color with a half inch of white foam that settles to a cream edge head. Aroma is pumpkin pie spice profile; cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg and mild sweet pumpkin and vanilla. Flavor is pumpkin pie in a glass: same as above with buttery crust throughout. Alcohol is perfectly masked. Thin to medium bodied, spicy carbonation, buttery complex finish.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ 2nd Tuesday Tasting. Pours a clear golden beer with a small white head on top. Aroma of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, old fruits. Flavor is very herbal, lots and lots of cinnamon, some pumpkin flavors. Like most other pumpkin beers, this is very herbal. Kinda like it, long herbal aftertaste. Overall a very herbal forward beer, as expected, quite okay.
