3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Spices are one note and the beer lacks body. Tastes overwhelmingly like ginger and cinnamon. I prefer a creamier pumpkin beer.

Tap at Haven Pasadena. Pours a clear golden with good, white foam. Nose is puppy breath, iodine, seaweed. Taste is intense nutmeg/cinnamon/clove medley. Palate is too dusty, almost like a spoonful of cinnamon.

It does indeed taste like pumpkin pie. Pours a dark orange. Spices play on the nose. It follows through into the taste. An old school simple pumpkin beer. Sampled at Union Station at the end of L.A. Beer Week.

A: The beer pours a slightly hazed amber color with q dense off-white head.
S: A very strong spice note. Lots of cinnamon and nutmeg with a little bit of spiced apple cider. Some toasted malt and bread with a light grass note. A touch of savory spices and fruits, interestingly enough.
T: Fairly sweet with lots of bread and apple cider notes. Quite spicy, definitely a lot of cinnamon, all spice, nutmeg, and some clove. A little bit of bread and caramel. Not a bad pumpkin ale.
M: Medium bodied with a medium level of carbonation.
O: The apple note was a bit distracting, but otherwise it’s pretty decent.
