2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orange amber with a moderate off-white head that disappeared after a third of the glass and left some spotty lace. Mild aroma of pumpkin and a bit of spice. The pumpkin was accompanied by a weird sour aroma that thankfully dissipated as the beer sat. The flavor is pumpkin and cinnamon, but both flavors are muted. Some biscuit emerges in the aftertaste. Body is thin and watery. Not something I would revisit.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nutty spicy nose. Aged amber color, medium tight foamy head. Attack
is nutty sweet malt, but it disappears quickly. There is some diluted
spicy bitterness present. Body is a little light, mild carbonation,
finishes dirty. A thin, uninspired pumpkin ale.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz. Bottle: Faint aroma of pumpkin and spices. Poured orange in color with a large, rocky, beige head that lasted throughout. Clear. Not sparkling. Flavor of malts, salt, and dough. No pumpkin or spice flavor at all. Light to medium body. Thin, watery texture. Average carbonation. Malty finish. Quite bad.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours clear amber with a small, frothy, white head, somewhat lasting with spare lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (wheat bread, sugar cookie, nutty), light hops (herbs), average yeast (earth, warm dough) with notes of nutmeg, pumpkin, cinnamon, and cardamom. Medium bodied, creamy and lightly sticky texture, average carbonation, and a chalky finish. Average duration, light sweetness, acidity, and bitterness. The aroma is almost promising while the body does not quite live up to the hype created by the aroma.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap at Barcade: Clear orangey pour with a ring of off white head. The aroma is of diacetyl/ buttery sweet vanilla and some lame spice notes of cinnamon. Very light body, way too watery on the palate. The flavor has a graham cracker note, and not much else. Perhaps a touch of cheap pale malt with very brief and mild cinnamon (if any) Seltzer-like and vacant.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2008 Bottle bought at Smith’s. Pours a clear amber color with a small off-white head. The aroma is very nice; sweet pumpkin notes, some toasted malts, some spices, cinnamon and cloves mostly. The taste is nice and relaxed; a full pumpkin flavor that is not overwhelming and mixes almost totally into the malt profile to create a nice smooth and toasted flavor. Some spices come to the fore and the finish is sweet and smooth. As usual, Uinta makes quality beers. A easy and quaffable drink, but also well crafted and tasty.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
clear orange with little lacing under....no head. light pumpkiny aroma but a far cry from the robust spicy, pie-like aroma of many pumpkins. flavor is grainy with pumpkin, cornbread, pie crust and a hint of roasted nuts. light bodied.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Liquor Mart. Pours a clear, filtered amber orange color with a dirty tan and slightly orange colored head. Oily pumpkin nose, slightly sugary, zero pulp, zero meat, more of a scented candle and soap character to the pumpkin. Not offensive, there’s no glaring flaws in the aroma, but it does come across as a bit simple and slightly artificial. Body is medium to light, dissolving without pause, leaving a thin, oily residue coating the mouth. Flavors aren’t very pronounced - mild, candied pumpkin, semi-sweet... a little sunflower seed and peanut oil noticed at times. Again, not terrible but certainly one-dimensional, missing the necessary heft and chewiness that a fall pumpkin beer requires, that fullness is absent.
