3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Picked up single 12-oz bottle from Heritage Liquors in Maplewood, MN. Pours a semi-clear golden amber colored brew with an average sized off-white head that slowly dissipates to a creamy top and spotty lacing. Aroma of autumn spice, nutmeg, a hint of cinnamon, and pumpkin. Taste is medium bodied, with flavors of smoked pumpkin, nutmeg and some mild grassy hops. Finish is semi-dry with aftertaste flavors of smoked spice, pumpkin and grassy hops.

Draft at Gold Nugget, Minnetonka, MN. Third Street was hosting a beer event on 10.8.14 and had 4 of their beers with them. Having served Third Street Rise to the Top Cream Ale (and liking it) at my wedding last year, I thought I’d give this one a shot. A really nice spiced up brew with a ton of flavor for only 5.4%. I was so impressed that I had two pints!

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a light amber with a white head. Pumpkin aroma is immediate but balanced with other spices. Malt character is subtle and overwhelmed by a wall of spices. The pleasant aftertaste is arguably the best part of the beer.

Perfectly drinkable. I can get the pumpkin spices but no pumpkin--if that’s a reflection of the recipe then that is smart brewing. Why ruin a perfectly drinkable autumn ale with pumpkin?

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
This was a true disappointment. The description says it is only brewed with pumpkin spice and to see if you can taste the difference. Well, the difference is obvious because the beer has hardly any flavor. The aroma is almost non-existent. Don’t waste your money on this one.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a good looking light brown. Aroma is very light pumpkin spices. Taste is similar, with a good malt combination, but just nothing in the way of pumpkin vibe. The name and description make you come to expect a lot more of a pumpkin punch in the face, making for a bit of a letdown overall.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The beer pours a light orange color with a rocky off white head. Aroma is slight vegetable with hints of clove, nutmeg, and other pumpkin pie spices. The palate has that same vegetable soup flavor to it, however its more apparent what that flavor ACTUALLY is. It’s a big bunch of cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice along with a bit of pumpkin hitting you. That mixed with a nice bit of caramel malt actually makes this beer rather enjoyable once you get past the vegetable flavor. The body on this beer is medium light. Not top notch, but unoffensive and drinkable.
