3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled on July 18, 2012.
Appearance: The appearance is a bit disappointing here due to the lack of head, just a very thin off-white head with very poor retention. The body is a very hazy pumpkin color, almost opaque.
Aroma: The aroma is spot on for a desert, cinnamon graham cracker crust comes to mind with some vanilla, not much pumpkin but boy this smells excellent and a huge step away from the rest of pack.
Taste: The intro is a bit mild, hinting at spices while the mid-taste hits hard with the graham cracker crust and some light ginger and nutmeg, pumpkin is noted throughout. This is just a wonderful desert beer.
Palate Medium bodied, oily, with some light prickly carbonation.
Overall: This is the king of pumpkin beers, I don’t think there’s anything better in the world than this for what it’s going for. I recommend this as a replacement for pumpkin pie during desert.

Love this beer alone but also love it mixed 3:1 with Southern Tier Creme Brûlée! Together it is awesome!

Had this on tap. Beautiful amber with light head. The aroma is that of pumpkin pie, all-spice. The taste was amazing, pumpkin pie, all-spice, cinnamon, clove, brown sugar, medium carbonation. All in all one of my favorite beers. No better beer for the autumn season.

It has a beautiful rich amber hue. It smells like a fresh pumpkin pie. It blends in a combination of pumpkin, nuts, cinnamon, sugar, nutmeg, and cream together in a wonderful combination. It feels like drinking a delicious pumpkin pie.

Aroma of pumpkin, taste is pumpkin, herby, moderate alcohol. Takes a few sips to warm up your palate, but very good!

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from a Bomber into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a faint pumpkin smell with some cinnamon thrown in, smells pretty good.
Appearance- Has a nice pale orange color with a small white head.
Taste- this is where I was disappointed. Way to little pumpkin flavor and to much hops for the blend in my opinion.
Palate- A medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation.
Overall- I was excited to try this beer and was pretty disappointed. I love many pumpkin beers but this one seems way over-hyped.

22oz. Bottle, pours an amber orange, with a very light white head. Smells just like a pumpkin pie which follows thru to the pallet. I thought it also tasted better as it warmed a bit. This beer is one of the better pumpkin beers I've tried and definitely succeeds at what they were attempting to do, I'm just not a fan of anything with a hint of cloves. Ones great to start the season, but a second is a bit much.

Tap at Rattle & Hum, New York. Colour is slightly cloudy orange with small white head. Aromas and flavours: Some fruits, spices, biscuit, hints of ginger, caramel and malts. Too spicy for me.
