3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Drank this at gabf last year and was siked to see these tallboys at the lls. This was just canned on september 7th. The taste is still in a bottle/can shock state. I am Going to wait two weeks to review this one again as I am Hoping the packaging shock will wear off and make the beer more of what it should be- pumpkin deliciousness.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
16 oz can. Pours clear ruby amber with a smallish creamy off-white head that goes to a thin film and leaves some lacing.
The aroma is nice sweet pumpkin pie spices - nutmeg, all spice and a little ginger and cinnamon.
The flavor is sweet bready caramel malts, molasses and pumpkin pie. This sample seems a little oxidized unlike other samples I’ve had this year. The finish has some bitterness to balance out the sweetness. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, a nice well balanced pumpkin ale with nice spicing.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Stapleton Tap House last November. Pours copper with small head and lace. Aroma of light spice. Significant carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of medium malts with light nutmeg, cardamon and amber malts. Overall very full bodied but a touch more of bitter spice or nutmeg than some pumpkin beers.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A nice ruby colored Pumpkin with a head that disappears quick. Scent is mild cinnamon, coriander, and nutmeg on top of pumpkin pie, not too sweet. I like that the first sip reminds you that the pumpkin is a squash, very realistic. The 7.7% alcohol is invisible right up until you breathe out. I personally think this is one of the best pumpkin beers there is, and I’m kind of a fan of the variety. Second best after the Venetucci?

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The pour is a translucent, crimson color with a small, beige, pillowy head which is mostly diminishing and leaves minimal lace. The nose is typical but nice; lots of pumpkin, toasted caramel, some light molasses, graham cracker, and nutmeg. Similar flavor with still lots pumpkin, nutmeg, toasty caramel, some cookie, and faint bready notes. The palate is more than medium, nearly lively, and silky. The beer finishes with still the pumpkin pie notes, some cookie, and slight earthy bitterness to keep from being cloyingly sweet. Very nice pumpkin pie notes all over and a nice sweetness. Pretty typical pumpkin beer but nicely done.

16 ounce can thanks to Nathan. Pumpkin and caramel. Evenly spiced. Light for ABV. About what to expect from the style when done well.
