3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz to flute
Strong nutmeg, clove and pumpkin, and pepper aromatics. Hazy amber with a thin white head and decent lacing. Spices overwhelm the beginning but pumpkin comes through in the bitter aftertaste. Medium bodied and creamy.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a bottle into a short pilsner glass. Aroma of yeast, pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice. Deep orange-red color, a bit cloudy with minimal head. Lighter and more refreshing than it looks with a great pumpkin flavor. Spicy yet refreshing finish. I am a big fan of pumpkin flavored anything and am often disappointed by pumpkin beers, but this one has a true pumpkin flavor and rich spiciness of pumpkin pie while still being very refreshing and easy to drink.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2012 Drank out of short pilsner glass out of 12 oz bottle. Aroma- strong lovely notes of pumpkin pie, cinnamon, and spice. Appearance- golden orange. Clouded with no head and very light carbonation. Taste- nice flavor of pumpkin and spice. Smooth but flavorful. Had off tap once before and it is better on draft. Palate- slightly bitter carbonated mouthfeel but pleasant taste. Overall- best pumpkin beer i have had as there is sufficient pumpkin taste. Better on tap if available

Aroma is mainly spice; with a little bit of biscuit/dough. Nice pumpkin pie spiced flavor. Pretty sweet. Some bread/caramel malt flavors, too -- which complement the spices well. I wouldn’t mind a little more of them.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. This is a great pumpkin ale. It is easy drinking, spicy, hint of pumpkin. Makes a great black and tan.

Bottleat home. Spicy, cinnamon, nutmeg. Pleasurable pumpkin taste but not overpoweringly so. A nice slight cream/vanilla finish almost like a dollop of whipped cream on top of pumpkin pre.

Pint at Crown Canyon Pub in Tucson. Pumpkin and ligjt spice in the aroma. Light brown and hazy. Pumpkin flavor is not big and maybe not big enough. Spices are light, too. This is completely inoffensive but is short on gumption.

Bottle... Poured copper orange with a pn eggy head. Dissipated to nothing though. Nose had nice spacing to it. Cinnamon and nutmeg for sure. Tasted of pumpkin pie spice, cloves, and malt added a nice pie crust tone. Vanilla, nice sweetness. Very drinkable.

Brown, some off white head. Spice aroma. Taste is more spice than pumpkin - like a pumpkin pie.
