2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the 2009 Great Pumpkin Festival, Cambridge Brewing Company, Cambridge MA on 31 October 2009. Copper colour. Rather grainy aroma. A fairly light pumpkin beer. Not too heavy on the spices either. But a bit low on interest. So it goes. Drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Big white fluffy head. Well carbonted dark copper color. Stale, weak pumpkin aroma, too old. Faint hint of malts. Slightly sweet, a litle grainy even grassy. Pumpkin is there but faint. Finishes dry. Needs to be fresh.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thought I’d rated this already. This is a pretty decent pumpkin beer, not too overpowering in flavor, though it has a fairly strong aroma. Couldn’t drink too much of it, but it’s good.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, pours a semi transparent orange gold body with a this whispy white head. Nose of all spice and cinnamon. Pallate tasted thin and almost vinegar like, low carbonation but acidic. Flavors of light weak malts, generic lager yeast and sour dry sugars all masked by pounds and pounds of allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg and whatever other things you might put in a pumpkin pie. So herbal and overpowering with absolutely no body to back it up. Drain pour.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
It smells of ketchup, the kind from fast food restaurants that comes in the tiny plastic packs. Pumpkin is also present, but believe me when I say it smells like ketchup. Hazy golden with floaties, thin head. Stale pumpkin flavor with a bit of nutmeg. Powdery and hairy mouthfeel. Uinta is a good brewery, but I’m not getting the Four+ franchise. The first two I’ve had have been substandard.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Poured a dark amber with a white head. The aroma was spice and sweet malts. The flavor was actually tasted like pumpkin and had a little bit of spice. Overall, a light and easy drinking pumpkin beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
tap @ Village Pourhouse: ’tis the season and I am drinking as many pumpkins as I can get my hands on! This beer? Not a favorite. Not by a longshot. There are some simple spices on the nose... the body is thin and watery, pumpkin only comes out on the finish and it is very faint.
