2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear dark copper, fleeting white head.
Faint spice in the aroma.
Not much flavor and none of what I look for in a Pumpkin Ale.

color is a nice orange/pumpkin color with a thick foamy white head...decent retention actually. lively co2 visible. not much in the aroma department...some crarmely malt and very faint spice and pumpkin. also a slight metallic off scent. flavor has more than expected after the faint aroma...very malty with more pumpkin and spice. moutfeel is creamy and lively with a malty, spicy finish.

On tap @ Uinta. Dark copper color with small white head. No lace left on the glass. Pumpkin, nutmeg and spicy aroma. Tastes the same as the smell.
Finishing with a sour taste in my mouth. It is much better than most Pumpkin ales on the market, though.

12oz bottle. Blech. Tastes like a cheap mass produced ale with artificial pumpkin flavoring thrown in. Minimal spiciness. Not impressive.

Pour is a orangey color with slight head that soon fades. Aroma has mild nutmeg and spices. Flavor is pleasant, but very mild for a pumpkin beer. This is an easy beer to introduce someone into the pumpkin beer style without overwhelming someones palate.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
I think this beer smells a bit like McDonald’s french fries. Orangey color, no head. Flavor is a bit sweet, there is a hint of something burnt. Maybe some ginger with clove aftertaste. Very seasonal feeling, fun one-time fall drink. Palate has a roof of the mouth sensation. Basically forgettable, but maybe good for carving pumpkins.

From the bottle. Appears dark orangy, clear, with little head to speak of. Tastes of cinnamon, clove with a medium to livley palate feel. Kind of weak in the flavor department. Kind of a flat tasting beer.
