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 (talkiní to you Southern Tier). Thereís a nice pumpkin aromatic flavor behind the spice. Nice lingering spiciness and moderately slippery in the mouth. Tasty.

2.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark amber color, foamy yellowish head, strange flavor perceived as soap at first but understood to be pumpkin later on, abrupt finish. A very strange beer which repulsed me at first but after the third sip, was enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Philly location. Pretty subdued and lighter pumpkin beer. Pours a nice copper with offwhite head. Nose is spicy, nutmeg and squash. Perhaps some cinnamon as well. On taste, nice and full malt body, taste of pumpkin meat, more of the spice blend as well, though subdued. Pretty well balanced and what Iíd expect from a well made Pumpkin Ale. Nice.

The aroma of sweet brown sugar, cinnamon spice, and pumpkin. The orange amber appearance has a light head. The flavor is medium to light in body with tons of pumpkin pie flavor, just as intended. You get a nice nutmeg ending on the palate.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Triumph in Princeton, NJ. Pours a clear orange-copper body with a finger-width, off-white, foamy head that dissipates at a moderate pace and leaves a decent lacing. Aroma is sweeter with a light pumpkin pie. Not too spicy, but a light cinnamon and clove along with a sweeter caramel. Flavor is similar, but somewhat weak. Lightly sweetened caramels with a softer spice. Finishes crisp after a medium body with a short aftertaste. Overall, not terrible, but unexciting. It was just average, although easily drinkable.

Reddish copper color small head. Aroma has pumpkin pie spice and sweetness. Flavor is nice and balanced. Drinkable, a bit vegetal, which is nice to see, I taste pumpkin in this one, not just spice, still spicy but not overpowering.
