3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle thanks to JStax, thanks! Pours a clear copper with a thin white head and no lacing, aroma seems heavy on the spices but has a decent amount of sweetness as well, the flavor has a good amount of spices on the front end, not bad by any means, just not blown away by pumpkin beers anymore.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. Pours a lighter copper color with a nice translucency and a whitish head of foam. The aroma is fairly heavy on the spices with lots of ginger and cinnamon coming through. The ginger in particular is quite strong in this beer, and it makes it rather lively in the aroma. Some doughy, biscuity, pie crusty aromas make it in with the spices as well. For such a lively aroma, the taste is kind of out of touch...disconnected even. The aspects of the aroma that I really love, are quite muted on the tongue. Itís unfortunate, really. Had the aroma translated better to the taste and palate, this would be a world class beer, for sure.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pumpkin malt, honey, and light spice aroma. Slightly hazy light copper with a moderate creamy off-white head, nice lacing. Malty pumpkin, light honey sweetness, ginger flavor. Medium body and carbonation. Very nice malt forward pumpkin beer with well balanced sweetness and spice. One of the better pumpkin beers Iíve tried.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber color with almost no head. Definitely heavily spiced in the nose. Taste is a little sweet underneath all the spices. Not my thing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Clear orange color, some bubbles on the side of the glass. Good thin white head. Smooth, lighter carbonation, medium body. Decent spice aroma - cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar. Hint of honey! Good spice taste, lightly sweet. As far as pumpkin beers at the 5% ABV level, I think this is soundly above-average. Definitely interesting.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Carrboro bev. Hazy orange golden with light white lace. Nose is more pumpkin flesh than most, spice is more restrained, light honey sweetness. Flavor is similar. Surprisingly easy drinking, but I had just gotten off work. Will have to revisit a full bottle- a rarity for a pumpkin beer for me.
