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.

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.

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.

nice pumpkin ale. A medium copper body big white head. Aroma had a nice pumpkin note with mild spices. Flavor was thin and light but enjoyable. Had mild pumpkin pie flavor and some basic malts. Seemed to be a nice sessional pumpkin ale.

Clear dark copper, fleeting white head.
Faint spice in the aroma.
Not much flavor and none of what I look for in a Pumpkin Ale.

On tap @ Uinta. Dark copper color with small white head. No lace left on the glass. Pumpkin, nutmeg and spicy aroma. Tastes the same as the smell.
Finishing with a sour taste in my mouth. It is much better than most Pumpkin ales on the market, though.

12oz bottle. Blech. Tastes like a cheap mass produced ale with artificial pumpkin flavoring thrown in. Minimal spiciness. Not impressive.
