3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Spritzy start, soft spices, and in fact it does taste a little like roasted pumpkin. Body and mouthfeel are moderate. A little floral like spiced candle in the finish. Finishes quickly. A little mealy afterwards. The spices pick up a bit of scented candle like waxiness, but its minor. Average Pumpkin Ale.

Pours a deep, slightly hazed gold into an English pint. Tan pancake head with good retention recedes leaving spot lacing. Pumpkin bread aromas. Thin and crisp with caramel and dough upfront turning to mild nutmeg and allspice before the medium length roasted pumkin finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
5.5% abv. 490 mL bottle purchased from Leary’s last night for $4.80. To pint, it pours a coppery, rusted orange with a trim, sudsy off-white head 1 finger in length. Aromas of pumpkin meat, pencil shavings, autumnal leaves, cheap tobacco, tangelo and grapefruit zest, and pink peppercorns, but briefly. Jesus, this stuff is watery. Everything described above, with the addition of pear, vanillin, half & half, unripe kiwis by swallow. A strange beer, but not an unpleasant one. I haven’t too many pumpkin beers I’m actually willing to finish.

Draft @ The Tap. This was a nice surprise! Well-made pumpkin. The aroma is big and bold with pumpkin, cloves, and cinnamon. (and no I didn’t get sugar and spice on the rim of the glass!) Flavor is pure pumpkin pie filling, bread crust, and then finishes with nutmeg and cinnamon. A nice medium body is made up of a good caramel malt base. The flavor is good without being overwhelming. Nice job on this brew!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Driftwood publick house in Plymouth. Pours a clear golden color with no head. Aroma is of malts, hops, pumpkin spices, some smoke, and a little nutmeg. Light palate. Flavors include a decent amount of malts, nutmeg & cinnamon, hops, grain, and leaves. Has a decent earthiness to it. Leaves a malty pumpkin spice finish. Better than some of those pumpkin beers out there.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub the afternoon of Night of the Funk 2010.
Pours a really nice orange-copper color with a really strong white head that persists for quite some time. As it falls, loads of lacing rings. The nose is pretty spice forward with some cinnamon and nutmeg, which is followed up by a very large presence of clove and allspice.
The taste suffers from a bit of the same problem as the nose, as the clove really takes hold and overshadows the other spices. Instead of being pumpkin-pie spiced, the beer ends up just being a clove show. Spicy feel on a medium body. Once you get past the overpowering notes of clove and, to a lesser degree, allspice, this is a pretty nice autumn ale.
Serving type: on-tap
