Craptastic. Besides that, aroma is the biggest score. Taste is caramel over the top forward. Too much. Acidic spicing and caramel finish. Quality control southern tier quality control. Produce too much to accommodate the market and this is what happens. This used to be my favorite pumkin beer. Now it’s just allspice ass in a bottle. Purchased at whole foods in Northern Virginia.

Golden color with white head. Aroma is pumpkin spices and some vanilla. Some bitter coffee like notes. Pumpkin Spice Latte? Pretty damn close. This is big, rich. malty, spicy. Best pumpkin beet I’ve had.

Poured from the bomber from tavour. Thin head. Aroma is strong of alcohol. Lots of holiday and pumpkin pie type spices. This particular pumpkin beer does seem to have good pumpkin flavor though. But the alcohol is a bit strong.

Pours nice amber with lasting white head. Huge aroma of pumkin and spice. Nice bready base to balance the slightly sweet pumkin flavor. Lasting spice finish to a great beer. Probably the best pumkin I have had.

Strong aroma of pumpkin and spices. Golden in color, not a lot of carbonation or head. Taste is lightly sweet, with the taste of pumpkin pie spices. Not a strong hop presence. Some bitterness in the finish, but that may be from the spices rather than the hops.

Thanksgiving, so was aged about a year. Pumpkin ales are hit or miss for me, but I enjoyed this one. Not overwhelming on the spices, and the pumpkin stands out through in body and taste. Getting some vanilla or cream in the flavor as well. Has a cloudy medium orange to light brown appearance. Good enough to sample again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice looking orangy brown. Malty and spicy aroma. Medium full body. Not much alcohol. Flavor is rather sweet. Malty flavors, I guess a pumpkin-like background, but mostly the spices predominate. A bit sticky and syrupy. I guess it’s well made, I just don’t get the pumpkin beer thing.

Amazing how you can actually taste the crust. Very sweet and enjoyable but one per season is enough .
