3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
16oz Can. The pour was a clear reddish orange with a head that was on the light side of average (1-2 finger), with an off white fizzy head that diminished totally after a few minutes and had poor lacing.
The aroma was of a light bread malt and a doughy yeast with notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin and clove.
The taste was a light malty sweet with a touch of pumpkin and nutmeg early on, becoming lightly bitter with a hint of cinnamon and a slightly spicy note of clove at the finish. The flavor lasted an average time after the swallow, being mostly of a light sweet spiciness that faded away rather slowly.
Mouthfeel was light in body with a watery texture and a mild carbonation.
Overall this was a decent tasting Pumpkin Ale and did possess a good drinkability, but as this style goes it was nothing overly special...

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 donít plan to get anymore though.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
16 oz single can from Biggie Wine & Liquor. Hazy brown appearance with a light tan head and light lacing. Mild aroma of fresh pumpkins, light cinnamon, light nutmeg and maybe some allspice with notes of caramel and toffee in the background. Similar flavor, moderately spiced with a mild malty sweetness. Medium to full body with a smooth, creamy feel. I like that they didnít go crazy with the spices, but itís almost a little bland. Still slightly better than a lot of pumpkin beers out there and itís pretty easy to drink at 7.7%. Not worth the pricetag either.

Solid all around pumpkin ale. Good pumpkin flavors. Could use a bit more kick perhaps, but no complaints.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
This was drinkable but barely. Unpleasant taste, harshness and just not enjoyable. Chemical flavor or booze or something. Left it for dead.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bready, veggie, spice aroma. Orange/copper amber with a thick foamy off white head that lasts quite a while. Smooth at first with some veggie and earthy flavors. Kind of yeasty. Medium bodied. A blunt slightly bitter finish. It's not bad but nothing to write home about.

Pours a clear copper color with ivory head. Pumpkin pie spicing and pumpkin on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a little burnt toast note. I like that itís not overly sweet.

From a can. Pours a burnt orange and makes a beige head. Smells of light hops, yeast, and pumpkin pie. Tastes of cinnamon, clove and hops.

Can as shown. Pours a clear orange with no head. The aroma is a strong spice, nutmeg, cinnamon. Thin mouthfeel with a strong cardamon, cinnamon and spice that lingers. Good.
