2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sugary pumpkin spice / pie and caramel malt aroma. Slick, oily, medium-full body, sweet, under-attenuated, spice and sugar-driven pumpkin strong ale. Chewy, waxy, sloppy malt that I find in Upslope stuff across the board, plus noticeable alcohol for that added punch. Grain of salt rating, I don’t like adulterated beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
$5.49 single 16oz can, from Total Wine, pours with a clear copper to amber body that supports a thin white head. The aroma offers up sweet sugary smelling malts, a sort of ripe apricot fruity ester thing and then a bit of pumpkin and light cinnamon on the back end. The taste starts with a very nice pumpkin kick flowing quickly into a bit of cinnamon and then more pumpkin. Pretty nice. It stays modest with pumpkin and pretty smooth with sugary malt sweetened cinnamon. At this price point I don’t plan to get anymore though.
