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.

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

Pours a dark golden orange with a beige head and aroma of pumpkin and fall spices. Pumpkin, caramel, and spices - allspice, cinnamon, and nutmeg, hit the palate, while not overwhelming, leading to a spicy, pumpkin pie finish. Great pumpkin brew

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
A pumpkin ale. Light pumpkin taste with some clove giving it an almost spoiled taste but not quite. Its good but like most of this style it is very limited in all aspects.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of queenholly. Served chilled, not cold. Awesome nose of toasted malts, nutmeg, cinnamon and a fair amount of pumpkin filling. Flavor has a good dose of pumpkin flavor with the above mention spices. The body isn’t has full as some other pumpkin ales I’ve sampled. However, the flavor is real nice. Body and mouthfeel are medium. Sweet pumpkin pie finish. This is solid for the style with some good character.
