2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Brown, some off white head. Spice aroma. Taste is more spice than pumpkin - like a pumpkin pie.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy dark golden in the glass, fruity pumpkin nose. The beer starts smooth. In the mainpart comes a spicy and fruity pumpkin to the malty and light body, easy drinkable and nicely spicy. The aftertaste is smooth, spicy pumpkin with smooth yeasty beer.
A great combination! I like this pumpkin brew! --> 14/13/14/14

This was a pumpkin brew that I actually kind of liked. Not too overbearing on the pumpkin. A hint of pumpkin, nutmeg and squash.

Admittedly, pumpkin ales arenít really my thing. If Iím going to drink one, though, this would be my choice. This one has smooth carbonation and a nice medley of flavors. It has just the right amount of spice. A solid seasonal option from Wasatch.

Golden orange pour on draft. Strong sweet pumpkin pie aroma - pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon. Taste is pretty standard pumpkin beer but itís really refreshing and seems to have a slight flavour of graham cracker. Good stuff

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Mostly orange amber pour with a short-lived white head. Itís a bit cloudy too. The aroma does have some squash, nutmeg, and maybe some brown sugar. Light to medium body. Not much to the taste. It is vaguely squashy but otherwise bland.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Hazy copper-caramel color with a thin sandy head. The little head lasts and lasts, leaving quite a bit of sticky lacing. Nose is modest boquet of spices; most notably cinnamon. Really nice transition into the flavor as it isnít overly spicey. Good pumpkin presence and I swear I can taste fresh baked crust. Modest, not over the top, but refreshing and overall a quality pumpkin ale.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle from the gift shop outside Margaritaville drank back in the suite, 01/11/13. Muddy translucent orange with barely a skin of head. Normally utterly underwhelmed by the whole pumpkin-in-beer thing, but this actually smells of it with a good natural blast of mashed sweet vegetable, Brussels sprouts, parsnip and clove-like spice on the nose, plus some souring English-like yeast.
Decent mellow spiced biscuit flavour with hints of wholemeal biscuit, parsnip crisps, sprouts and peanut butter M&Ms. Hops and malt gone AWOL. Unusual and good. Gets a bonus point for the combo of flavour, body and low abv.

12oz bottle shared at a local tasting, pours a dark amber with an off white head, the aroma had some notes of spice and cinnamon with a little bit of pumpkin pie, the flavor has a sweet front end with caramel and malt with a finish of spices and nutmeg, not too much though, not bad. Iíve just lost my interest in the pumpkin style.

Bottle - Pours amber with a thin filmy white head. Nose is pumpkin, pie crust, cinnamon and clove. Taste real gentle. Spice is mellow, with pumpkin and crust. Thin but gently carbonated.

Poured from a 12FLOZ Bottle. The color is a dark hazy copper with a very small light brown head that dissipates quickly. I smell Christmas spices, pumpkin and light grass. I taste all of the same with a very wet mouth feel and nice finish. One of the best pumpkin ales I have had.
