3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Like a pumpkin in a patch the amber head quietly fades in the mist. Pumpkin front and center on the nose with with notes of pumpkin pie spices. Flavor is very sweet and malts/hops are little distant.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
5 oz. flight glass from Malted Barley in Westerly, RI. Served with a cinnamon sugared rim. Orangish rust color with a modest head and pretty good lacing. Smell is pumpkin pie, cinnamon, brown sugar, nutmeg and alcohol. Taste is heavy on the pumpkin which really makes it stand out. Cinnamon, molasses and brown sugar also shine in this one. Nice bold flavors and spices really hide the alcohol well. A touch of hops at the end cleanses your palate for the next sip. Very good as far as pumpkin ales are concerned.

Let me preface this and say I just donít get it. Pour is fizzy orange carbonated but no head like a fresh poured amber cider. Smell is burnt punkin seed brown sugar white pepper. Taste is meally really sweet toasted and kinda spicy. Lots of big flavors just donít always work in harmony.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a nice one. Poured darker orange into a snifter. On the nose you get pumpkin and more pumpkin. Almost like a pumpkin pie only with lots of alcohol. Some malt in there as well as there should be. Nice candied pumpkin sweetness all the way down and stays around on your palate with a great pumpkin aftertaste. Definitely up there on the list with the pumpkin beers.

2011 bottle. Pours dark orange with small tan head. Aroma is quite distinct. Smells of pumpkin, cinnamon, and bread - the taste is very much the same. Doesnít really linger long or stick to your teeth. It isnít cloyingly sweet - goes down fine for me.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a deep orange with a nice big off-white head. Overwhelming aroma of pumpkin, sweetness, and spice(a good thing). I enjoy pumpkin beers(to the point of brewing a pumpkin ale myself each autumn), but this one just doesnít quite do it for me. It was too sweet, not enough spice too match the malt and pumpkin. It was so sweet that I couldnít detect any hop presence. It is just too much thick, syrupy, oversweetness, etc. If it were tamed just a bit with some added spice and even a little hoppiness I believe it could be a great example of a pumpkin.

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.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
22 oz bottle - pours orange, orangey orange clear orange, with an orange-white medium head, slight lacing. BIG aromas of nutmeg, all-spice, pumpkin, and roasted goodness. Hints of cinnamon along with the aforementioned nutmeg on the taste. Medium-full bodied with a spicy finsh, lingering creaminess. Tastes like biting into a slice of pumpkin pie. Exactly. Yum yum gimme some! This is the perfect Halloween/Thanksgiving/Autumnal Equinox brew, if only the weather would cooperate. I like Southern Tier. But I donít like orange.
