3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Brilliant gold color. Small, pure white ring head. Aroma is masala and curry. The smoke takes a back seat. Very smooth palate. Soothes after a harsh beer. Earthy pumpkin notes marry nicely with natural cidery sweetness. A real impressive adjunct cider.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle. Served in a pint glass, the cider pours a mostly clear gold color with about a quarter inch white head that fizzled away quickly. The aroma is mostly sweet and tart apples, along with some pumpkin spices and smokiness. The taste is just like the aroma, it tastes mostly like sweet and tart apples, with some pumpkin spiciness and smoke noticeable too. However, the smokiness does come out a little more as the cider warms. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit coating with moderate carbonation. I liked this, and I wouldn’t mind trying it again. $7.99 a bottle.

Had been really looking forward to this one. The pumpkin spices were ok, but the body fell flat and the smoke was more ashtray than campfire.

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
16.9 oz bottle, thanks brenn79. Aroma is super stinky--3 week old gym socks sitting in vinegar is what I’m smelling. Pours hazy piss yellow with minimal foam. Taste is rancid and sour, vegetal, barely detectable smoke. Average carbonation, slick mouthfeel. Well, I thought it was going to be a drainpour, but maybe I can finish it with a little willpower.

2.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured from a 500ml bottle. The aroma comes across as sweaty sock. Lactic like, soft smoke, rotten vegetable, earthy. The flavor is much more pleasant, apple, firm tartness, earthy, very light smoke, woody. This would be so much better if the aroma was pleasant. Footbalmed.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle- Pours hazy straw golden with a thin crackly head. Aroma is lacking in the smoke department, overripe apples, a little farmhouse funk is nice, the pumpkins add more of a basic vegetal aroma. The taste is similar, apples, fruity, some funk, smooth, but i was really hoping for more from this. Still not bad.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
500 ml bottle from Imbibe Wine. Nose is sweet apples and a light smokiness with a very light hint of cinnamon. Lightly hazy yellow with a short lived yellow tinged head. Flavor is sweet apples with a tiny bit of tartness. The apples hide any pumpkin present. Not what I was expecting for the price paid.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Oh oh. Starts off with a rotten pumpkin smell (not good). Hazy, insipid yellow color with almost no head. Fortunately, the taste is actually like smoked pumpkin and sugar and it’s quite good. Not much aftertaste, but that rotten pumpkin kind of sneaks in again. Kind of strange, but not bad.
