3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Trade extra from emacgee. Thanks Ethan. Copper/light brown in color with a pretty big white head that dissipates. Alot of spices in the aroma: cinnamon, and nutmeg seem to the dominant ones- with some caramel malts and a touch of fruit. Taste is also spicy with cinnamon and nutmeg, some pumpkin. Body is lean, and the malt character is mainly toasted/crystal malts. This beer has an interesting tartness midway through the taste, which overall I didn’t find too enjoyable. Finishes dry, with some lingering spices, malt, and moderate acidity. Interesting, yet weird

Pours fiery amber orange with a dirty white head. This beer is infected. You get a bit of pumpkin in the nose, but everything is over run by a harsh sour vinegar twang. Too bad. The locals liked this one fresh. I had high hopes.

At Ale Atlanta tasting. Wow, what strong aroma, but I have difficulty defining it. Most people didn’t like it and poured it out. Cloudy yellow amber color. Very vegetal. Hint of sour. Meh.

Bottle. Poured a deep brown/red with a one finger off white head. Aroma of pumpkin, sweet malt, pumpkin pie spices. Flavor was sour, with pumpkin notes and some citrus (?). Absolutely awesome beer. Glad I bought a case of it :)

Amber beer with a slightly off-white head. The aroma is vegetabley and pumpkiney with a hint of all-spice. The flavor is not overly sweet and is mostly an added spice affair. I catch a bit of sugared graham cracker at the finish and the touch of bitterness is not unpleasant. Not a bad pumpkin beer at all.

Bomber. Copper colored beer, lightly hazy with a big soapy head. No lacing. Strong nose of spicy pumpkin and dough. It tastes more like real pumpkin than most "pumpkin" beers, instead of just tasting like spices. It leaves the mouth pretty sticky with an every so slightly sour finish. Nice, rather unique brew.

1 liter bottles from the brewery in the refrigerator, but basing this on the draft beer tasted at the brewery. Beautiful brown/red color, fair head. Pumpkin flavor not overly present, with more spice flavors than anything else. Slight tartness to the finish. One of the best Radishes I’ve had.
