2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear light orange beer displaying a gentle off-white head. Thick-smelling off the start and kinda fleshy, but vegetal, almost avocado reminiscent. Spicy, chewy graham cookie notes with strong cinnamon and apple notes. Buttery, baked bread and biscuits, very sweet palate. Typical Southern Tier syrupy palate. Floury malt nature. Flowery minimal hop finish. Dull and big for nothing. Repelling sweetness supported by little complexity. Every bit as good as Weyerbacher Imperial Pumpkin.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2009 Draft: Weak aroma of stale beer and nutmeg. Clear orange pour, medium cream colored head, good lace. Intense perfumey flavor of bready pumpkin and nutmeg. Filmy. Not my style, but it seems overly done. The balance of pumpkin and spice flavors is very good, I just think that both need to be dialed down a little. There is also a spicy bitterness that seems out of place as well.

Bottle @ Yngwie’s, courtesy of Yngwie. Thanks man! :-) Clear orange body, small white head. Nose is present pumpkin notes, sweet syrupy malt tones and hints of cinnamon and clove. A bit sweet, but interesting. Taste is sweet, syrupy pumpkin and cinnamon tones, with hints of ginger and cookies. A bit extreme, like drinking a Christmas cake. Too much, but interesting.

Aroma of nutmeg, cinnamon and pumpkin, in an very awfull way. Pours an orangey golden color with a thin white head. Unpleasant flavor of nutmeg, cinnamon and pumpkin.

Rather dissapointing considering the price tag on a bomber of this stuff.Aroma was marginal and the mouthfeel was thin.Color is a decent medium amber with a head that dropped way to fast.Think I’ll pass the Pumking next time.

Poured very nicely into a pint glass. Deep golden orange color, very reminiscent of an actual pumpkin. Sweet aroma, reminds of pumpkin pie. First taste on palate was sweet and pumpkin pie-ish, however this was soon overwhelmed by the alcohol. By the third sip I found this to be undrinkable as the booziness completely took over. The watery consistency wasn’t a help either--I expected something a little thicker to support the flavor. This is definitely not representative of the style and I will not be drinking it again.

I think this was the worst pumpkin beer that I have tasted. I had trouble finshing the bottle. I would not buy this beer again.

From 22 Oz bottle, pours amber, is one of the most clear beers I have seen. The aroma is most bewitching, everything fall: nutmeg, maple, wood, cinnamon. Light bodied. Taste is lacking for the spicy nose, but it does have a clean pumpkin flavor with a bitter finish.

66cl Bottle at Sloshfest. Clear golden orange colour, white head. Overwhelming aroma of spices like nutmeg, mace, cinnamon, sweet pumpkin, pie crust. Flavour is sweet, all the above mentioned spices, pumpin-pie crust, earthy from all the spice, bitter hoppy finish. Medium-bodied. Over the top imo.

Eh. Tinny taste. Some pumpkin. Some spice. Not enough pumpkin to accept this ale as good.
