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.

Aroma is plastic like with some sour malt tones. Color is a bright dark gold with very good carbonation and a thin head. Taste is thin and spicy. Starting with a light body it goes down crisp. Finish is weak with a thin mouth feel and just a little spiciness and a hint of pumpkin for flavor. I don’t like it.

Poured a dark, amber color with a thick white head. The nose was spicy with cinnamon and nutmeg. The taste jumps right into a complex spiciness of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and allspice. The end was light and dry with slight cascade hops coming through. The finish was dry and spicy.

A good, but not great pumpkin beer. Seems rather thin and watery compared to some of the others I have sampled. Taste and aroma is mostly spice, with just a hint of pumpkin. Poured from a 12 oz bottle.

The idea was good... The sweetness of the beer completely overwhelmed subtle flavors.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nutmeg and clove aroma; watery body with a fairly dry, tangy and astringent finish; a hint of honey, allspice, and clove in the flavor; no malt charactor; overall rather dull.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Deep amber color with dark orange tones, thick white head. Taste is a pumkin taste with a blend of spices - nutmeg, cinnamon, and clove most prevalent. Pumpkin pie is what comes to mind with the overall feel of the beer. I really enjoyed this seasonal. Cheers!!!
