3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from World Beers. Clear, copper pour with a minimal, brief white head leaving moderate lace. Nose is lightly spicy, but mostly roasted pumpkin and medium-roast malt. Medium-light body and carbonation. Pumpkin, nutmeg, almonds, pine hops and some caramel. On the less spicy side of the pumpkin beers, which I appreciate, but Iím still waiting for someone to do a pumpkin beer without spices (Snipes did a roasted pumpkin sour a while back, but it was a one-off) - more of a savory and umami ale.

Nice spicy aroma, absolutley no head whatsoever and a coppery color. Nice spicy bitterness with a moderate pumpkin spice finish. Fall is here.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2012 Dark hazy orange with sparse lacing. Aroma of pumpkin pie, cinnamon, and yeasts; While the flavor is a mixture of spices, pumpkin, nuts, cinnamon and yeasts. Body is light with some mild carbonation with a spicy zing. Overall, itís an mediocre fall sipper, and it lacks the maltiness I would expect from this style. Without the malts, the other flavors are pretty much on their own

12 oz. bottle pours a clear copper/orange with an off-white head and some lacing. Aroma is primarily pumpkin with noticeable cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla. Taste is slightly sweet but somehow flat. Light to medium body.. This would be boring if it werenít for the pumpkin taste and color. Every other Uinta brew Iíve tried has been quite enjoyable.

Slightly better than average. Pumpkin taste is good, but this brew does not got the bullseye. But still worth a try.

I think this is the first beer that I have ev tried that actually tasted like the inside of a pumpkin. The first whiff smells like scooping out the seeds from a carving pumpkin, cool! The flavor is a little bit more subtle, definitely some thanksgiving spice to it. Iíd say that vanilla and especially clove are pronounced. Itís also a bit tart with a beautiful deep amber hue. It is not very complex, however. Itís greatly quaffable on warm autumnal afternoons.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark copper - soapy lace - aroma pulls off the rare balance of pumpkin character without being overly vegetal - a pleasant mix of spices as well (cinnamon, nutmeg) - soft carbonation - flavor is a bit thinner than I like in this style, but the cinnamon adds a bit a spiciness and the roasted pumpkin is earthy and tasty - maybe I just donít prefer session able pumpkin ales as much - it is quite good, but I long for something heartier.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce bottle. Dark orange and a nice stream of bubbles with generous foam layer on top. Subtle pumpkin pie aroma. The pumpkin and spice aspects are toned down and thereís a fizzy acidic taste that lingers. I enjoyed the hint of cinnamon and in all itís a solid B/B-. Luckily Iím a big fan of pumpkin pie, because otherwise these run of the mill pumpkin beers would just come off as English bitters with spices thrown in as an afterthought.

My bottle has a much prettier shape than the one pictured. Better label too. Smell is sweet pumpkin dough. Certainly tastes much higher in alky than 4% fer sure. Decent co2. Comes across like an english malty beer. Yes, it sure does. If you think of those styles, malty english beers with that old flavor, you got this pegged. Punkin is more prevalent in the smell. I really want to like these punky beers but few really are great.

I liked the appearance, golden-orange with a light head. The flavor was fleeting and the pumpkin/spice mix was very light and vanished almost instantly. The smell was also very light on the pumpkin spice. A lightweight entry into the pumpkin beer category, but not a *bad* beer, just not very memorable.
