3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear amber pour with a small head, left a collar around the glass. Aroma had hints of caramel and a good pumpkin spice presence, lots of spice. Flavors were similar with a lot of spices lingering throughout. Light mouthfeel with mild carbonation. Light bitter finish, spices lingered. Decent, drinkable, light pumpkin brew.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle. Having tasted a few too many pumpkin beers this year I didn’t expect this one to blow my mind, I suppose I’m a tough critic on pumpkin beers. This was just a middle of the road pumpkin. Faint hints of pumpkin pie but a nice spicy nutmeg flavor/aroma though. Worth a try but don’t go out of the way

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle from City Beer. Somewhat cloudy orange-amber in color with a one-finger off-white head. Pumpkin and spice aroma, rather standard with your typical cinnamon/nutmeg and some caramel. Slightly sweet caramel malt base with pie crust, pumpkin, and major spices - cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice. Decent balance. Medium-bodied with some spicy tingling and average carbonation. An above average but not super-impressive pumpkin ale.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Bottled on: 08/03/11. Mine doesn’t actually say that it’s organic. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a smallish antique white head. Roasted pumpkin pie spices, burnt crust, pumpkin, caramel, and some vanilla beans in the predominantly vegetal aroma. Medium-bodied. The taste starts with some mildly roasted squash qualities and is followed by a little caramel and some pumpkin. A touch of vanilla in the middle. A bit of a wheaty finish with a dash of nutmeg. A unique take on a pumpkin beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Moderate spice and pumpkin flavor, not overpowering, but still very drinkable.... Had better, but definitely had worse too.... Fairly well balanced and well done.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Poured a golden orange color with a small white head. Aroma is mostly pumpkin pie spice (nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon). The taste does not hold up nearly as well as the aroma, as there is not a whole lot of "pumpkin" flavor. It’s good as a "harvest" ale, but expected a bit more from the pumpkin. Still, it’s good for what it was within the bottle.
