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.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A bland pumpkin ale. Let’s consider that it is a seasonal and you may as well go balls out on your creation for the fall, right? The strong Uinta brand falls short on this one.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange copper with a white head. Toasty malts, pumpkin, light vegetal aroma. Flavor is the same. Vegetal flavors put me off this one.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The pour is a lightly hazed dark amber/copper color with a finger of off-white head.
S: Pretty much what you would expect. Heavy on the pie spices such as all-spice, nutmeg, and cinnamon. There might be a little bit of vanilla in there, but minimal pumpkin. Plenty of toasted malt and caramel, too.
T: The flavor is very similar to the aroma with plenty of spice character. Heavy on the pie spice flavors of nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla, and all-spice. Creamy caramel and toasted bread add a nice sweetness.
M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation.
O: A rather well done pumpkin beer, I thought, at least. Certainly better than a lot of the other ones out there.

Purchased a 12 oz bottle @ Julio’s Liquors, Westborough MA. Used a lager glass. Clear amber color with light carbonation. Nose of Pumpkins spice. Solid head and decent lacing down the glass. Taste is very much as expected, spice with pumpkin and a malt backbone. Real easy to drink if you like the style. Not over-done with spice, A bit above average.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nose of pumpkin goop rather than spice. Pours orangy amber. Small head with wispy lacing. Somewhat light bodied, this is a quenching beer. Try this when performing a fall cleanup on the lawn.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle/12oz - Pours a darkish orange amber in color with a small white head. Aroma is of cinnamon and nutmeg... some vegetal hints of the pumpkin. Flavor is fairly lightly spiced with a decent pumpkin flavor. Palate initially seems a bit watery, but there is a thin film that adheres, not unpleasantly, to the tongue. I like this one!
