A new good pumpkin ale, tastes of sweetness from pumpkin less of a spiced ale that pairs well with the brown malts.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
The aroma is straight pumpkin pie with less emphasis on the sugar and more on the crust and whipped cream. Very spicy. Nice amber color with a fluffy white head. Taste is pumpkin, spice and pie crust without the unnecessary sweetness of some other pumpkin ales. Metallic aftertaste. Watery palate. Average pumpkin beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours amber with an off-white head. The aroma has graham crackers, pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and crustiness. It has a fairly light body with lots of mild carbonation. The flavor starts with pie crust, toasty dry malt, dried spices, pumpkin and some nuttiness. The finish has a mild astringency that kinda works for it. Pretty decent for a pumpkin ale.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Code date 1/14/16. Appearance: Amber/light brown with a slight haziness and frothy off white head and decent lacing.
Aroma: Pumpkin spice (cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice) with a light toastiness.
Taste: Medium malt sweetness with strong bready and toasty malt flavors. The pumpkin spicing in the aroma is strangely missing on the tongue. A slight cooked pumpkin and nutmeg flavor show up on the swallow, but overall taste profile is fairly one demensional.
Mouthfeel: Medium body with a low to moderate carbonation.
Finish: Enough bitterness to balance, finishing with a lingering toasted malt and light pumpkin spice.
Overall: A very low spiced pumpkin beer. Nice bready and toasty malt backbone, but while the pumpkin spice shows up in the aroma it’s almost non existent in the taste.
