3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Vibrant orange beer with a thin head. Fruity sugar pumpkin aroma with diffuse spices that are hard to tease apart to identify. Fruity sugar pumpkin flavor with residual sugar and cinnamon sweetness on the finish. Hints of alcohol, despite a moderate 5.9%ABV push along the spices as the beer breathes and warms and ginger takes the forefront.

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2010 On tap at stewarts. Nice orange color, not much head or lacing. Good aroma of spices, pumpkin, and pie crust. Taste was even better, pumpkin, pie crust with just a hint of spices. Texture was light and easy to drink. One of the better pumpkin beers out there

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at the brewpub. This is definitely one of the top 5 pumpkin beers I have had. It pours hazy dark straw colored with off-white head. The aroma contains pronounced pumpkin, allspice, caramel malt, and hops. Smooth palate that is rich and well balanced, with flavor notes of pumpkin pie with crust, allspice, caramel malt, and backup hops. This is a delicious pumpkin ale.
