2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
On tap, poured into a bullet. The aromas are pretty pumpkin spice forward, with a bit of caramel underneath. It pours an oily, lightly hazy, caramel color with a dense, white head that retains a thin ring and has a runny lace that leaves nothing on the glass. The taste is a medium high sweet medium spice bitter. The beer is sticky and thick with just a hint of carbonation and a full malty body. Pumpkin pie and caramel dominate the palate with some bread notes and a spicy finish. It’s relatively clean with just a light spice lingering in the aftertaste.

This is a pretty nice pumpkin beer. Not too synthetic. Some spice near the end with a slight alcohol kick.

Pours a dark orange with a thin off white head. Aroma is pumpkin spice and nutmeg. Mild carbonation in the mouth with a prefect mix of pumpkin spice, nutmeg and vanilla. This is one of the best pumpkin beers out there.

Amber pour, mostly white head. The spices and pumpkin come through very nicely in the nose, with some nice yeasty qualities and bready notes. Some pumpkin taste but not a lot. Not much flavor at all kinda bland. Much better of this style available.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brilliant burnt orange with lots of floaties. Nose is fruity pumpkin, light peppery alcohol, caramel malt, and diminishing cinnamon/allspice. Flavor is pumpkin, pepper, and light allspice up front, finishing with more pumkin/caramel malt. Lingering faint spice. Really good considering this is out of season. Would like to try fresh, and imagine it would be quite tasty.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Past season. Bottle. Pours orange dark amber. Small wispy white head. Aroma is firmly but pleasantly spiced. Pumpkin pie spice. Pumpkin. Sweet malt. Caramel. Pie crust. Flavor is much the same. Big Medium body. Very smooth. Light spiceage on the palate. Some alcohol present. Good balance. Semi sweet. Its a couple months old now so maybe some of the edge has come off the sweetness and spiciness.

sweet pumpkin spices, maybe some figs, butterscotch, sweet malt.
Taste is similar, not quite as powerful as the aroma. Smooth, malty.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. via Archer Liquors , Chicago, pours a slightly opaque burnt orange color with no head. Nose is pumpkin, nutmeg and allspice. Taste is sweet, but not over the top, with a well balance of fall, autumn spices including allspice, nutmeg and cinnamon. Finish is dry, and ends on the same tasting notes. Not a big pumpkin ale fan but this was well suited for my palate. Quaff Score 8 / 10
