3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2013 Amber pour with good head and lacing. Aroma is primarily spice with little pumpkin. On tasting, it is apparent that Terrapin has chosen to go heavier on the spice. While not bad, I think more pumpkin is needed to balance the flavor. Light to medium bodied with a slight lingering (and distracting) nutmeg (?) on the back of the mouth. Still, one of the better pumpkin beers I’ve tried.
Update 9/26/2013: I said before that it was one of the better pumpkin ales but found it a little unbalanced. Well, this time it was well balanced. Very good. (original score unchanged)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted on 12/2/13 from a capped 12oz bottle purchased at Midtown. Pours bright orange with an average off-white head that recedes to thin lace. The nose is pretty typical spiced pumpkin with some caramel, and typical baking spices...as a matter of fact, this beer smells almost exactly like a pumpkin pie. The flavor is a bit maltier with more bread, pie crust, and caramel, with the typical baking spices taking a back seat. The body is fairly light with average carbonation and a long caramel and baking spice finish.

A very solid pumpkin! Decent copper pour w/out much of a head & leaves a little lacing. Aroma is subtlety full of fall spices. Taste is very well balanced & finishes w/ a good amount of spice which lingers on the palate. Good stuff!

Bottle at Ritz Carlton, Orlando, 20th November 13. Quite sweet, some cinnamon, nutmeg and thin pumpkin flavour, with other spices. Not bad for a seasonal tipple, nicer by an open fire probably

Bottle to glass. Light amber color with a thin off-white head. Pumpkin sweet smell with lager yeast notes. Flavor is sweet with too much lager character that lingers in the finish. Not my favorite pumpkin by any means.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I am not a huge fan of Pumpkin Beer. Too often I am left wanting a glass of milk to go with the piece of pie I have just drank. This beer does an excellent job of balancing the pumpkin flavors within the beer. Pours murky brown with thinnish white head. Scent is allspice and malts. Mild pumpkin spice flavors blends well with light malts and hops. Medium to Heavy body. A best in show Pumpkin beer. Bottle - Dakota Blue - Atlanta, GA

S: Pumpkin, Nutmeg, Mild Cinnamon
T: Mild Nutmeg, Mild Cinnamon, Mild Pumpkin
M: Mediocre Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Mildly Spicy, Mildly Watery
Overall, for a pumpkin lager, its okay but under carbonated in this case.

Pours a medium amber color with a finger of eggshell foam. Nose has lots of cinnamon, cream soda and a trace of pumpkin. Palate is very malty with some brown sugar, not overly sweet, touch of big red gum with a spicy pumpkin finish. Meh.
