Draft at GABF. Pours an orangey amber with offwhite head. Nose is spicy and clean. Some faint cooked sugar and caramel as well. On tasting, the spices lend a dryness. clove and nutmeg, cinnamon. Pretty clean overall and decent, but not really a standout type of beer. Solid.

One of the darker pumpkin beers I have had. Smells of malt and spices. Taste has a hint of pumpkin but more spice and molasses. Ok.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark reddish with white head from bottle, aroma has nice notes of clean pumpkin, bread, toffee, molasses, cinnamon, and cardamom in there as well. Balanced aroma, no negative qualities there. Taste however is not so lucky, some slight notes of pumpkin but moves into some weird sweetness, touch of toffee with a very watery finish, slight hints of spice throughout.

2.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle. Pours a dark amber with a small off white head that quickly diminishes to a thin film.
The aroma is lots of pumpkin pie spices. Yum.
The flavor is very watery and subdued - some pumpkin and spices and a slight bitter finish. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and very watery.
Overall, it smells great but not much to it other than that.

Brilliantly balanced. Pumpkin flavor comes out in the first breath after a swig. The pumpkin spices are detectable but not strong. A delicious beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark red orange color with medium off white head. The nose has a hint of burnt pumpkin pie. Medium palate with a light charcoal feel and back notes of pumpkin. Good to drink on it’s own but with food the beer becomes a little overpowered. Good on a warmer weather fall day. Not Tommyknocker’s best.
