3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2013 It’s fine. that about sums it up. It is sort of like an anemic amber ale- pours that color with a bit of lacing on top. the pumpkin is there but in a subtle way- too subtle I would say. Not much (any) hoppiness to it but a sweetness and warmth from the spices. quite light on the palate. I guess I expect a fall beer to be a bit more substantial- in a warm you from the inside-out kind of way. this is really more like a summer ale with a tiny hint of pumkin. like the brewer was told to add pumpkin, but they always chose the desert at thankgiving that wasn’t pumpkin pie.
for what it’s worth.....tried it a second time and was much more appreciative of the subtleties. definitely better than I remember.

[Tap] Pours a light orange color with virtually no head. Ginger and light pumpkin pie aroma. Malty and sweet taste is only faintly of pumpkin and related spices. Thinner body. There are definitely better pumpkin beers out there, or maybe I just got the end of the keg. Tasting notes from 1/2014.

Bottle from Dodgrblu. Aroma and flavor is medium-bodied pumpkin and spice, not tons, but more pumpkin than spice, which I like. Pretty good.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Best before 3/11/14. Poured 12/30/13. Translucent amber with a bubbly off-white head. Aroma is pumpkin spice, nutmeg, ginger, earth, vanilla, cinnamon. Taste is drier than expected; earthy, herbal, pumpkin flesh, bread, vanilla, roast malt, light bitterness; finish is watery, general pumpkin flavor. Some nice lacing. Chewy mouth feel. Medium bodied. Another less than memorable pumpkin beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a bottle. Pours very clear medium copper brown with a thin off white head. Tastes like pumpkin with light spice, not too sweet and not too dry. Very nice flavor. Light body and low/medium carbonation. Smells like semi-sweet pumpkin pie.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Finally got my hands on some more pumpkin beers! This is Uinta’s Punk’n. Bottle, 4%. A golden orange-amber color with a light beige head. Served in a snifter, straight from the fridge the aroma is cloves, cinnamon, some pumpkin flesh. The taste is sweet, zesty spiciness with cinnamon, clove, allspice & a hearty helping of pumpkin. Full bodied, this is what I was looking for, you get some real vegetal yam/pumpkin notes that are nicely complemented by pumpkin pie type spices. Well-balanced to me with it being a bit more pumpkin forward with the spices taking a backseat. Nice!

Draught @ Headkeeper: This one pours a clear, orange tinged amber color. There was a wisp of an off-white head on it. Lighter but nice aroma. Some pumpkin pie spices and a hint of pumpkin. The taste is good. Some pumpkin pie spices, some pumpkin and some malt sweetness. Fairly nice.

Bottle via SL... Nice dark red color... not much head. Nose of spices, pumpkin. Taste is a fresh pumpkin flesh taste... pumpkin seeds, crisp, little sweet in the after taste. Medium body, easy to drink. Enjoy the alcohol content with lots of flavor. Overall: Good pumpkin brew
