2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz Bottle. The pour was a clear burnt orange with an average (1-2 finger) light brown fluffy head that had OK retention, reducing slowly to a thin film and small collar with good sheets of sticky lacing
The aroma was on the mild side, with a toasted grain malt and an earthy doughy yeast and had notes of nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, a touch of brown sugar and of course pumpkin.
The taste was very lightly sweet and a tad malty with notes of brown sugar and pumpkin from the get go, and then took on an almost stale bitterness and had a mild spicy finish. The flavor was most definitely short in duration with not much left behind but a slight hint of spices.
Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a decently mild carbonation.
Overall this was a light tasting Pumpkin Ale, which did possess a decent drinkability but was pretty much nothing special...

Many thanks to Chris for this bottle! Smooth fresh, slightly sour, slightly spicy. Fresh, slightly grainy, nearly no bitterness. Smooth, fresh, but a bit too characterless. Easy to drink though.

Poured from bottle to glass. Copper red hue with fizzy off white head that diminished to a thin ring. Aroma is cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, ginger, sugar. Mouthfeel is decent with a medium body and soft carbonation. Taste is sweet with a spice finish. Overall this is a decent brew.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Brown with flecks of red and nearly no head. Nutmeg, sugar, and molasses in nose. Tastes like candy. Just don’t care for this style.

Great rich auburn color, light off white head, nice carbonation. Not an overly pronounced pumpkin flavor but a good balance of sweetness and spice.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Spicy, pumpkin aroma with notes of molasses. Pours dark copper colored with a thin tan head and pretty good lacing. Starts quite malty with hints of pumpkin and molasses. Finishes smooth with the spicy character revealing itself at the end. Decent pumpkin, but not on par with others I've had.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice aroma of spices, good balance between pumpkin and spice. Sweet malty backbone that bears the weight of the spices and pumpkin nicely. Hint of molasses is probably what makes this one of my favorite pumpkin beers out there.

On tap at pj whelihans. Pours a dark dark chic cerry red. Little to no head or lacing. Light spices, no pumpkin. Odd and upsetting.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
From a bottle smells like punky pie. Look is dark like a porter. Stoutly kind a feel that morphs into a stronger dark lager. Yes that spice is in there. That molasses is detectable I think, gives it a rich nerve. Yes, that dark beer thing takes over in the middle yet it has decent, almost over the top, punky personality. Just never quite gets there. Aroma turns metallic toward the end.

"Don’t see the low scores here. Nice all around though not a standout. Ample spices but not overdone. Malty, dark amber. Nice pumpkin flavor. I dug it a little."
