Sampled in Boulder. A decent pumpkin ale but once again it is missing the really flavor one is looking for. Nicely not too sweetened to excessively.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Pacific Liquor: Poured a beautiful autumn orange hue while a thin development of foam head rested on top. Aroma is perfectly spiced and smells similar to a cold pumpkin pie right out of the refrigerator but there was only a minimal scent of real pumpkin which is actually a good thing. The flavor is balanced well with just the right amount of spices and sweetness and is carried out by a firm addition of caramel malts. This is a worthy pumpkin beer recipe but I think they should have marketed it in a 4 pack and lowered the price.

bottle: actually not too bad. nice orange pour. crystal and caramel malts with a nice, full hearty pumpkin note. Some dryness towards the finish and cereal grains. Light touch of herbs, but not overdone like some other pumpkin ales.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. The pour was a murky medium amber brown with an average sized (1-2 finger) creamy white head that was fully diminishing but left behind some nice spotty residue which allowed for some good lacing that was left sticking to the glass.
The aroma was very light of a toasted biscuit malt and a sweet doughy yeast with notes of nutmeg, cinnamon and pumpkin.
It tasted mildly sweet with just a hint of cinnamon and brown sugar in the beginning and finished mildly bitter with a note of nutmeg and a pumpkin presence at the end. The flavor lasted an average duration after the swallow, then faded quickly.
Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and watery yet slightly dry in texture with a prickly carbonation.
Overall a refreshingly mild brew with a nice dose of flavor that is not overdone.
