3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
pours translucent bottle brown, minimal head, ringed retention, minimal lacing, slow as molasses moving CO2 streams. Some malt on the nose, not much else. 7/10-level sweetness med-heavy malts up front, brown sugar, cinnamon, pumpkin, very creamy silky mouthfeel, finishes just a tad watery and thin. A soft mellow lingering bitter finish. Medium complexity, medium depth, good transitions, decent carry, pretty good drinkability.

Bottle - Pumpkin spices and nice pumpkin. Orange clear copper with a rich beige head. Pumpkin and spices up front with an unpleasant bitterness that follows through to the finish. Not that great.

If only this beer tasted as good as it looks! Great head, wonderful color but that’s where the good ends. Limited pumpkiness happening, almost nil carbonation, decent finish. Not a bad beer but probably one of the weaker pumpkin beers I’ve had this year.

Pours a dark amber with creamy white head. Some faint pumpkin pie aromas...cinnamon and cloves....that’s about it. Tastes more like an oktoberfest/marzen....malty up front hoppy finish....not much of a pumpkin beer though.

Pours a hazy dark copper colour with big white head slowly dissipating to a big white ring with spots covering the beer and a bit of lace up the glass. Aromas of nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves and caramel. Flavours are a caramel maltiness, some hop bitterness, cloves, nutmeg, booze and little cinnamon, nuttiness slight pumpkin touch.
