3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: Draft at the Brewpub, Princeton, 11/17/13
Aroma: The nose is a touch dull, with pumpkin spices, malts, bread, and some mild fruit
Appearance: It pours a clear darker orange color with a head and some good lacework
Flavor: The spice comes out more in the flavor, but the components are pretty similar to the nose
Palate: The body is medium, it drinks easily, and has a mild dryness to the finish
This is an alright example of a pumpkin spice beer, but it just feels a touch on the dull side, especially in the nose. Overall though, it is very drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draught at the brewpub in New Hope. Arrived to the table a mostly clear orange amber with a thin-moderate white head. Pleasant aroma of pumpkin along with the requisite pumpkin pie spices. The flavor is a nice combination of pumpkin and spices with some caramel sweetness present as well. The spices do not dominate. Medium bodied. An enjoyable pumpkin ale.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap at the brewery. Definitely tastes like a slice of pumpkin pie! Dark amber pour with a bright white head. Aromas of clove and cinnamon. Taste is pumpkin pie spice with a good hop balance to keep it from getting too spicy and sweet like many pumpkin ales (talkin’ to you Southern Tier). There’s a nice pumpkin aromatic flavor behind the spice. Nice lingering spiciness and moderately slippery in the mouth. Tasty.
