3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: Pumpkin pie right out of the oven; clove cigarettes; nutmeg/allspice and a touch of cinnamon. Appearance: Murky tinted copper color with lively carbonation; slight tan head settles into a solid skin. Flavor: Roasted pumpkin and clove are most noticeable up front; cinnamon shows up mid-palate; has a lingering spicy and lightly bitter finish. Palate: Light body, sticky texture, lively carbonation, slightly bitter finish. Overall: A pretty nice pumpkin beer that’s worth your time.

Draft 11/22/14 (Ballydoyles Aurora)-Pours a copper amberish with a small head. Aroma of pumpkin and spices. Taste of the same. This light to medium bodied brew is well balanced and quite tasty.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, best before 02/18/15. Nose is heavy spice soup with a meaty, brothy, socky dankness that I don’t like. Pours red-orange with minimal carbonation and a tight beige head; pretty, actually. Taste medium-bitter with light-medium sweetness, the normal rogue’s gallery of spices and the rarer appearance of actual pumpkin, though it’s a bit too vegetal. Light maltiness, light caramel, low but present alcohol, not really any hops, somewhat crisp. Not bland, but not memorable (and too much with the spices, guys, seriously!).

Pours a clear dark Amber. Smells Kiel pumpkin pie. Tastes sweet but not too sweet. Spices at the back end. Cinnamon, white pepper, nutmeg. My fitness pal says it's only 125 calories. Pretty good.

Sweaet aroma of pumkin pie, spices, and cinnamon. Deep orange amber color with a tan/white head. Muted sweet malt at the begining. Notes of fall spices next. Some cinnamon and nutmeg. Not as sweet tasting as it smells. Watery mouthfeel. Finishes with a slightly peppery bitterness....very mild. Ok.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Hazy orange/amber brew with decent looking head that dies fast. Fair pumpkin aroma and the taste is slight pumpkin with a small amount of spice. Thin, very thin mouth feel. This is like a watered down version of a really good pumpkin ale. Not a fan of thin watery beers. Of course I would love to have "harvest the flavors of fall with a bottle opener" but our lame distributors around here offer Uinta brews in cans only.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and shaker served showing a clear, deep amber hue, with good persistence to the silky, soft white head, and curtainy cling to the lacing. The aroma was light grain, malt & caramel, a light pie spice presence, and some toasted pumpkin notes. Light to medium bodied, with lively enough carbonation, the taste followed as the nose, adding a hop bitterness that was earthy, lingering, and probably a little too heavy handed, considering the light presentation of the other contributing notes. Not a bad seasonal, otherwise.
