4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Displays an Autumnesque appearance with its toasted orange-amber hues, maybe not so much the slim, short-lived, light beige head, but, overall, a good-looking pumpkin ale.
Smell: Spiced sugars atop oven-charred crusty toasts, an additional sweetish hint of brown sugar and the scent of pumpkin.
Taste: A malty blend of bready and toasty tones sweetened with a moist hunk of brown sugar. Lightly fruity. Medium level of spices, with the usual suspects present and nothing blown out of proportion. Closes out dry with a subtly spiced taste of toasted pumpkinloaf.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation, though it does have a bit of tingle to it.
Overall: Its balance is appreciated. I find thereís a very fine line between a pleasant amount of spices that enhances or simply agreeably accents the beer and a disharmonious, offensive level of spices. Thankfully, the spiciness was just enough.

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.
