2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. Poured hazy medium orange with lots of fine sediment suspended in there.. short, spotty beige head. The aroma picked up a lot of cinnamon and nutmeg, with much less pumpkin meat and vanilla coming through.. the spices were nice, but there was just no substance. The flavor found bready notes and a little pumpkin on the watery core.. nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice surrounded.. finished quick with a touch of sourness and a wash of residual pie-like spicage. Light-bodied with moderate carbonation on the palate.. watery in several places.. this wasnít offensive by any means, but it needed more of everything.

12oz single from "Lifesource" Salem.
Dark burnt orange coloured beer with a large frothy/rocky cream coloured head.
Great allspice and pumpkin pie aromas..mouthwatering really.
Taste is much the same with the spice dominating at first then the rest of the pie coming later.
Could use a little more body though
Altogether a nice seasonal

Amazing aroma gets your hopes up...smells like a extra spiced pie. But the final verdict is that it's flavor is up front but finishes flat

12 oz bottle to glass; strong aroma mores than most pumpkin beers - aroma was of slight pump king and to me anise/licorice moreso than cloves. nice looking beer - unfiltered honey amber pour. taste was waaaay toooo sweet for me - licorice dominates what could have been a good beer

Smells strongly sweet/pumpkin-spiced. Copper in color with an off-white head that settles off fairly quickly. Flavor is sweeter with strong spice characters and hints of pumpkin...reminds a bit of soda, with a slight vanilla finish.

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.
