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...

16oz can 2/4/15 (Whole Foods-Lamar)-Pours copper with an off white head. Aroma of pumpkin and spices. Taste of the same. This medium bodied brew is well balanced and is one of the better pumpkins.

Pint can. Pumpkin spice aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove with some pumpkin and caramel notes. Pours burnt orange with a half a finger of tan head with excellent retention and lacing. Starts with the pumpkin spices mentioned above with a bit of caramel. Finishes smooth with pumpkin sweetness with a bit of roastiness. Nice pumpkin.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a pint sized can. A beautiful beer, mahogany with a tan ring of bubbles. The aroma is very spicy, the standard spicing with a solid malt note. The flavor is very similar to the aroma, so no surprises. This is a well balanced beer.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2015 version, poured from a can. Orangey copper color with a beige head. Smell is muted malty bread and spices. Taste starts off with some vanilla, followed by pumpkin, a hint of ginger, and some allspice and clove spiciness. Mild bitterness throughout. Feel is pretty smooth with some carbonation, pretty full-bodied. Overall a pretty enjoyable pumpkin ale, well-balanced, but not exceptional.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Good pumpkin and spice aroma. Nice copper-orange color. Medium body. Flavor was spiced and grainy malt with pumpkin being the compliment and not overpowering. Not too sweet and balanced.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear light brown with a nice mocha head. Head craters slowly leaving some big indents in the frothy surface. Aroma of sweet molasses and honey with a bit of yeasty aroma as well. Smells a little sweet without as much pumpkin spice aromas as I would like. Good pumpkin flavor, but I would like more pumpkin spice in the flavor as I would in the aroma. Kind of one note, but not overly sweet and not overly done in any other way. Maybe higher in ABV than I would like in my pumpkin beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lost rating from last fall. Pours burnt orange with a barely there head. Has the expected pumpkin and pie spices but also a touch of darker, roastier flavors, which is nice.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Bit old at this point (4 months?), but drank ok, probably muted the spices some which suits me fine. Copper colored. Nose of pumpkin spices, light caramel malts. Roasted pumpkin flesh, even handed pumpkin spice. Ok, better than I expected from Upslope. Not my thing but fine for what it is.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazed copper with a soft white head. Light bready, squashy aroma. A balanced pumpkin ale, not too spiced. Overall decent although probably better when fresher.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy chestnut pour with copper highlights and a small eggshell head. Subtle cinnamon, nutmeg, caramel, and toasted wholegrain. Not terribly aggressive but enjoyable. A nice change of pace but wouldn’t probably buy another.
