2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
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."

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at The Perch Pub & Brewery. Amber and hazy appearance with a beige head. Pumpkin, mild spices, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, caramel and chocolate with a rich malty finish. Pretty damn good for a low ABV pumpkin ale. Sessionable and easy to drink.

When in Utah, buy Wasatch. A medium amber, somewhat hazy liquid flows into my glass, and even with a very purposeful pour I was hard pressed to get a decent head out of the bottle. What there was disappeared within a minute and left no lacing at all on the glass. The aroma is very much like the other Wasatch brews Iíve experienced in that it is a good representative of what Iím expecting to drink, but so very light. Also like the others, I am saddened by the lack of rich flavor when I do finally tip the glass. Decent balances, very pumpkin allspice in both the flavor and aroma. The taste is lightly bitter with a touch of sweet, the palate definitely not as lively as it could be. The finish is light, almost invisible. This is one of the better Wasatch Iíve tried, but I donít think Iíll be inviting them back into my fridge any time soon.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Williston Brewing Company. Appearance: finger of slightly off-white head, golden-copper color, clear, good lacing. Aroma: pumpkin, light cinnamon, spicey hops, caramel. Palate: medium body, average carbonation, sticky texture, light bitter finish. Taste: sweet caramel into pumpkin pie sweetness and spice of cinnamon, with spicy hops coming in and putting a light bitter on the back end; underneath which is a lasting pumpkin pie sweetness through the end. Overall, very good pumpkin beer! It is complex, but does not go over the top with spices to do it. Rather drinkable too.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
"standard thin panzy beer with lots of spices to cover up the fact that itís not a very good beer underneath. Worth trying once, not twice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pumpkin, brown sugar, and pumpkin pie spice aroma. Hazy amber with a small ivory head. Bready pumpkin malt and pie spices flavor. I like the way the barley malt flavor makes it through with the pumpkin, and the spices arenít over the top. Medium body, moderate carbonation.
