2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Growler from New Hope, PA location: I am usually sketchy when it comes to Pumpkin Ales as they are usually too spicy. This one is almost right, could actually use a little more spice. I think the aroma was spicier than the actual beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at the Princeton location: Pours a clear reddish-orange color with a compact light beige head that burns off quickly. Spotty lacing. Aroma of pumpkin, malt and nutmeg. Light-bodied with mild pumpkin and cinnamon flavors, along with other spices in the background. The finish remains pumpkin-y with a short herbal aftertaste. Overall the beer is okay, albeit one-dimensional.

on tap at the Philadelphia location. Lightly hazy orange/amber in color. Aroma is nutmeg, pumpkin, and toasted malt. Taste is toasty malt with pumpkin, nutmeg and caramel in the back. Light to moderately hoppy for the style and pretty well attenuated. Medium bodied, finishes lightly bitter. pretty well done.

at gabf. vanilla nose, orangey brown color, and pumkin pie flavor. the vanilla and slight nut flavors make this more creative than the other pumpkin beers. good palate balance.

Draft at Triumph. Pours red with a beige head. Nice aroma, lots of spices...cinnamon, clove, nutmeg. Medium light mouthfeel. Very typical pumpkin beer, but clean. Not mindblowing either

Floral pumpkin spice, cinnamon, potpurri aroma. Reddish garnet colored translucent beer with short tight beige head. Tangy pumpkin pie flavor, sweet veggies and cinnamon. quality, no ’soap’ often in other pumpking ales. modest-light-tangy palate, refreshing. A good pumpkin ale.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Probably the best beer I had at triumph. The deScription in the menu is that it is like a bite of Pumpkin Pie in every mouthful and that is about accurate. Good spices and very well balanced. Not too overpowering as some pumpkins are.

Poured hazy amber with a thick tan head. Very nice appearance. Aroma had pumpkin and spices plus courant. Taste was too one dimensional but nice. There was more spice then pumpkin as someone else said. Quite nice though.
