Pours amber w/ very little head or lacing. The aroma has a decent amount of fall spices. The taste has a dry spicyness to it. Somewhat of a bitter taste lingers on the tongue. Itís a solid pumpkin overall!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle--pours a deep copper color with a medium head that leaves a ring and light lacing. Aroma is a typical pumpkin ale made up of nutmeg, cinnamon and all spice. Taking a deeper breath, malt aroma starts to arise. The taste is malty with the muted pumpkin spices lingering. Some bitterness on the finish, so perhaps some hops pop up too. The alcohol isnít noticeable at all. I can only hope this beer is available for Thanksgiving! Total wine.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 18/20
12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a hazy medium brown with a very thick one finger white head. Amazing head retention with some decent lacing.
Aroma is loaded with typical pumpkin pie spice in the form of cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove. There is a really nice toasted malt undertone that sticks out over the spice. Also some Earthy hops shining through.
The spices in the flavor are somewhat muted and balanced nicely with the toasted malt. There is even a bit of chocolate in there. Hops are noticeable with a mild bitterness and earthy flavor but they remain restrained. Very thick and sticky mouthfeel making this feel stronger than the 7.3% that it is.
Overall, the more this beer warms the more I like it. I like that the spices arenít overdone and there is some noticeable malt and hops. A pumpkin ale that is better than most out there.

Reddish copper, nice white head. Smells like cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. Taste is pretty much the same. I didnít get any clove, which is a plus. Finishes a little drier than most Pumpkin Ales. Pretty typical, but Iíve had worse.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. Clear copper-red with a lasting quarter inch of meringue on top. Nose of caramelized pumpkin, toasted nut, fruity bubblegum and pie spices. Tastes of sweet-sourish baked pumpkin, rye, pie spices, toasted pecan, earthy tea leaf, and touches of peppery clove, ginger and citrus. Medium body has low carbonation and is well balanced with a spicy-pithy finish. Very sessionable, which I canít often say of a pumpkin ale. Different, but harmonious, combination of spices is not overdone and lets the leafy hop and caramelized pumpkin flavors shine. Really tastes like a touch of rye in there too.
