3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours clear orange with white head, aroma has notes of vegetal pumpkin, some spice, toffee, and some sweet molasses notes as well. It’s a bit too much pumpkin to where its almost DMS like. Taste is more of the DMS cooked corn and cabbage, with some slight pumpkin, spice, and some graham crust, finishing fairly sweet with molasses in there as well. Taste picks up the aroma, but the overly vegetal pumpkin detracts.

Bottle from Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours orange copper with a modest beige head and a, you guessed it, pumpkin aroma. There is a strange vegetable flavor that does resemble pumpkin and a spicy finish.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice crisp pumpkin beer. Not too heavy and just enough spice (nutmeg). I am not a huge pumpkin beer drinker but this was very nice especially with sweet potato fries.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Aroma is pumpkin and allspice, with some sweetness. Nice Orange amber color, clear, light head. Medium body, some carbonation, finish is good with some flavors that linger but not too much. Taste picks up the spice. Overall, this is a pretty good pumpkin beer ... not too much on the spice, good intrinsic ale.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour from a 12 oz. bottle. Golden color, clear liquid, fluffy white head, fat bubbles. Big aroma of pumpkin pie, including a strong dose of nutmeg. Delicious flavor includes a malt character that reminds me of toasty pie crusts. Pleasant aftertaste reveals subtle hops bitterness along with a harmonious blend of spices. A great example of the pumpkin ale style. Interesting and highly drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a deep golden with a small white froth. Aroma is mostly sweet, a bit of the earthy pumpkin character with a lower levels of spice, cinnamon and nutmeg, though they’re still there. Flavor is a bit spicier, the pumpkin still kinda there, picking up some more pumpkin towards a slightly sweet grainyish finish, some light bitterness. Light medium to medium body and a sharp carbonation. Ok, nothing too crazy good

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a nice glowing rich orange amber with a frothy thin white head 3.5. Has a pronounced vegetable gourd aroma, cut pumpkin, pumpkin seeds, softer usual spicing suspects, nutmeg and clove. Flavor follows, something a little vacant, fairly nice and truce pumpkin and spicing, little bit of bitterness on the finish, seems fairly weak in body for all that spice flavor. Body is light and fizzy like a miller lite.
