3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2013 Itís 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 wasnít pumpkin pie.
for what itís worth.....tried it a second time and was much more appreciative of the subtleties. definitely better than I remember.

Draft at cock n bull Sarasota. Clear orange strong white head. Big sweet vegetable pumpkin with lite spice aroma of Cinnamon nutmeg and cardamom. Good lacing. Balanced beer and has all the elements of a pumpkin beer. Sweet vegetal pumpkin with some spice and malt balance. Not bad and very drinkable.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Juice subtle pumpkin ale. Light on the ABV and not an overwhelming pumpkin taste. Pours a rich amber orange tint that is clear in texture. Little bit of a sour after taste but not very noticeable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle. Caramel and toffee body followed by a light pumpkin spice. This is pumpkin by spice for sure. Ok overall.

Can. Pours a luminescent amber-orange with a high, large-grained, buff head. Nose is pumpkin, smoke, roast malt, strong tea, barley sugar, and a touch of soy miso. Nicely savory on the tongue; not sweet, but rather richly vegetal with more tea and soy. Puts me in mind of miso-roasted sweet potatoes or buttered squash. Great roundness on a long, roasty finish. Sensible restraint on a very good beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured into shaker. Pours a soft copper with light khaki head, two fingers high with pretty good staying power. Aroma - sweet pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices - mostly nutmeg and clove. Taste - dominated by spices and a some resinous hops with some sweetness from pumpkin underneath. Not really typical of style with this much hop flavor.

Itís alright. Aroma is sort of sweet and spicy. You can smell some pumpkin. Taste is alright too. Kind of spicy, and a little bitter. Thereís some pumpkin flavor but its kind of weird. Not bad.
