3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Never has been my favorite style,but this one was pleasant,thanks to a growler bought by LT Judge. Distinct pumpkin,your nutmeg and cinnimon but not in that fake smelling aroma,so prevelant in other Pumpkin brews. Taste was a slighly sweet malt, with the background of the spices, despite its well formed head ,it had a soothing smoothness to it. I actually had a second glass of this,thats a first for me with a Pumpkin.

On tap at the Tyranena tasting room. Copper to orange with a thin disappearing head. Aroma of pumpkin and pumpkin spices, nutmeg and cinnamon. Taste of fresh pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon and sweet malt. Nice balance of spice and beer element, not overly spiced like a few other pumpkin brews I have had. I hope this one makes it to bottles.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Colorful burnt orange/copper color. Moderate, beige head the settles to a lid of creamy bubbles. Bread and spice aromas. Spices of cloves, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg. LIghtly oily feel. Early pale and lightly toasted malt. Spices work there way in with cinnamon and mild ginger. A nice malty backdrop. Has a pumpkin malt quality that is enjoyable. Spices are not over powering as many in this ilk. Nice balance and "drinkability". A good post feast brew.
