Nice lighter pumpkin ale. Could have a heavier pumpkin flavor. Overall I like it but itís not the best pumpkin ale Iíve had.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear orange-amber with a small, bubbly, off-white head. Aroma of pumpkin pie, sweet bread, and toast. The taste is full of pumpkin and spice, but not overly so. Itís also subtly bitter at the finish. Light-medium bodied and smooth with a medium dryness. A little buttery feeling. Pretty good holiday session ale.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Purchased at Breeze Thru Liquors in Milwaukee, WI; enjoyed at home on a lazy Sunday after running 9 miles in the morning. Appearance is a cloudy, vibrant amber with a thin white rim around the glass. Aroma of pumpkin, light vanilla, bit of clove, bit of caramel malt, smells flavorful while also smelling a bit light. Taste is an above average pumpkin ale, pulls off the sweetness pretty well with also adding a light bitterness. Itís not very potent which is not a bad thing, makes it even more session like. Pretty damn good stuff.

Copper orange pour with cinammon and pumpkin aroma. Taste is pumpkin and some spices with a little cinnamon and nutmeg. One of my favorite pumpkin ales.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance was hazy orange amber with creamy diminishing of white 1 finger head, spotty lacing. Aromas are sweet malts then spicey baked pumpkin pie and slight citrus hops. Taste was sweet malts upfront then the pumpkin and spice flows softly. Palate was smooth light CO2 with light-mdeuim body, average length dryish lemony spicey pumpkin finish. A little light (body) for me...

My boyfriend, having heard several current and former Utahns recount tales of the stateís truly insane liquor laws, decided to buy up every kind of beer from Wasatch available at Specís. Itís a great thing to support Utah brewers! Donít expect too much from them though; this was my favorite of their offerings, and itís just "quaffable, but hardly transcendant," to quote "Sideways."

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2011 Purchased on my trip to Vegas at the Total Wine store. Second of two pumpkin ales tonight (the other being the Shock Top Pumpkin Wheat). Pours a deep amber colour with a beige head that stays a bit more than the ST and lacing is much better. Tiny particles float around and a little haziness installs itself at the last pour. Pumpkin nose with hints of spices (nutmeg) and soap. The taste is a bit more on the cloves side of things, with hints of pumpkin and a bread finish. Still, everything is pretty mild as this is a light beer at 4% ABV. Not sure if I prefer it to the Shock Top version.

Dull amber pour with a small amount of white head. Aromas of cinnamon, pumpkin, clove, and allspice. Flavor is lots of spices - cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg - but not overpowering. Body is lacking a bit but overall has lots of good flavor and is very balanced.
