Hey everybody, it’s autumn, time to brew a pumpkin ale. Why do I even bother with this style? I don’t hate it, but it’s always just meh.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass. Thin white fizzy head dissapears quickly. Little to no lacing. Aroma is mostly pumpkin and some light malts. Spices are not strong in aroma. Taste is very lightly sweet with some pumpkin, guard, squash and strong with some spices primarily cloves, allspice and cinnamon. Light bodied beer with light to average carbonation. Slight guardy lingering finish. Overall a pretty good pumpkin ale. True pumpkin with some spice not malty or overly sweet. Good choice if you like a "dryer" lighter pumpkin ale.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Nose is lightly malty, lightly pumpkiniferous, but heavy on the fall spices (nutmeg seems to be the far and away strongest to me) and lightly earthy. Clear orange-golden pour with a lot of CO2 and a foamy beige head. Taste is lightly sweet with very little bitterness, more cinnamon donut comes through, a bit earthier , but otherwise it’s still standard autumn spice soup and light malt, perhaps with a bit of icing/sugar. Medium-full body, refreshing, repeatable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a clear orange body under a small fizzy beige head that faded to a thin film. The nose is pretty typical for a Pumpkin Ale, a little too much spice for my tastes, but a nice slightly sweet Munich maltiness. The flavor is a little hot from the heavy cinnamon and nutmeg spicing, tempered a bit by the sweet maltiness, but it still comes off as too heavy on the spice. Medium bodied with a little mouth coating stickiness. Fine fizzy carbonation level. A little better than some Pumpkin beers, but still not a stunner.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle:   Spicy start, a touch of clove in this one.   Moderately spiced there after, not light and not bright unfortunately.   Middle of the road, also in body.   Clove is the strongest aspect of this one.   Wished it were a little more robust tho.   Not bad.

A beautiful beer on all fronts. This is a hidden gem. Brew is crisp, clean and very east to drink. Subtle hints of pumpkin meticulously added to this brew. This beer has the perfect hints of pumpkin without being over the top with nutmeg, spices and all that other crap that they add to these seasonal pumpkins. Pop a couple of these, sit back and watch some football!
