3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours orange copper with a modest beige head and a, you guessed it, pumpkin aroma. There is a strange vegetable flavor that does resemble pumpkin and a spicy finish.

Nice crisp pumpkin beer. Not too heavy and just enough spice (nutmeg). I am not a huge pumpkin beer drinker but this was very nice especially with sweet potato fries.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Aroma is pumpkin and allspice, with some sweetness. Nice Orange amber color, clear, light head. Medium body, some carbonation, finish is good with some flavors that linger but not too much. Taste picks up the spice. Overall, this is a pretty good pumpkin beer ... not too much on the spice, good intrinsic ale.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour from a 12 oz. bottle. Golden color, clear liquid, fluffy white head, fat bubbles. Big aroma of pumpkin pie, including a strong dose of nutmeg. Delicious flavor includes a malt character that reminds me of toasty pie crusts. Pleasant aftertaste reveals subtle hops bitterness along with a harmonious blend of spices. A great example of the pumpkin ale style. Interesting and highly drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a deep golden with a small white froth. Aroma is mostly sweet, a bit of the earthy pumpkin character with a lower levels of spice, cinnamon and nutmeg, though they’re still there. Flavor is a bit spicier, the pumpkin still kinda there, picking up some more pumpkin towards a slightly sweet grainyish finish, some light bitterness. Light medium to medium body and a sharp carbonation. Ok, nothing too crazy good

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a nice glowing rich orange amber with a frothy thin white head 3.5. Has a pronounced vegetable gourd aroma, cut pumpkin, pumpkin seeds, softer usual spicing suspects, nutmeg and clove. Flavor follows, something a little vacant, fairly nice and truce pumpkin and spicing, little bit of bitterness on the finish, seems fairly weak in body for all that spice flavor. Body is light and fizzy like a miller lite.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale orange golden pour off white thin head .... aroma is earthy and warming pumpkin spices (cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger) .... taste is sadly not as good as the aroma but it keeps the earthy theme with pumpkin spices and isn’t half bad .... it has substance and more of the earthy than the spice which is what the deScription says they were going for

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled on Date: 8/3/11. Best pumpkin beer I’ve had yet, nice deep amber color with a mild spicy/pumpkin aroma. Very drinkable with no spicy after taste. You don’t have to sip this beer due to over spice like other pumpkin beers. Spices are present but not overpowering so you can taste the pumpkin too. I’ll be picking up this pumpkin beer again.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ The BeerMongers... My first pumpkin beer of the season. Poured burnt orange with a thin head that dissipated quickly. Nose had some pumpkin squash and loads of spice. Pretty roasty in the flavor which created some balance for the spiced pumpkin characters. Darn tasty, but not the best pumpkin out there.
