3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
THOUGHTS: Decent beer, but I don’t know if I would have guessed it was a pumpkin beer. Flavorful and easy to drink, but a little watery in body.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a medium brown with red highlights when held to light and an average, tan head that kept a decent sheet and left fair lacing.
The aroma had moderate caramel, molasses, chocolate and roasted malts; light herbal hops; hints of pumpkin pie spices; cola, slight sour pumpkin and vegetal pumpkin. The initial flavor was moderately sweet and slightly bitter; while the finish was heavily sweet, slightly sour and lightly bitter with a short duration. Overall, it was a little watered down. There was molasses, caramel, roasted malts, cola, and a little sour pumpkin. The medium body was watery with soft, yet tingly carbonation and a dry and lightly astringent finish.

Drank from a twelve ounce bottle poured into a pint glass at Brew Brothers in Pittston, Pa. Smells overpoweringly like pumpkins, tastes very watered down. I’m not a fan of pumpkin beers but expected more from Tommyknocker.

Hazy amber brown red color. Thin off-white head, some bits of lace. Moderate sweet taste, very mild bitter. Bad..

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pour is a dark brown with a small white head. Aroma is of a slight spice. Nothing over the top or surprising for this brewer. Flavor is again a barely there spice with a very little malt presence. The was pretty poor. A boring brown ale with some spice thrown into it.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a dark amber with a small off-white head. The aroma is full of pumpkin and molasses. The flavor does not match the aroma. There is a faint pumpkin flavor, nice but I was expecting more. Overall, a very nice pumpkin ale.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very light, easy smooth pumpkin beer. Really easy to enjoy. The spices are more akin to those in a pie, taking a backseat to the body of it
