3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Many thanks to Blake for picking up one of these for me. I’ve been wanting to try this for awhile after hearing this was tagged as one of the best pumpkin ales out there.
12 ounce bottle. Pours a dark golden hue with a decent head. Typical pumpkin pie spices evident, but not nearly as intense as I was expecting. Flavour is the same, but with a good amount of fusel standing out. The caramel malt always blends well with this style and there’s a bit more than typical. A little green overall. I should’ve had this cellared for a good year to round out the rough edges here. Decent, but there’s easily better pumpkin ales out there.

Unlike the other pumpkin ale, here the pumpkins are really easy to feel in aroma and taste. Perfect combination of pumpkins and spices.

Tasted on 1/25/15 from a capped 12oz bottle obtained as an extra in a trade. Pours clear burnt sienna with an average white head that slowly recedes to an average collar of lace. The nose is all about the pumpkin pie baking spices, with a little bit more cardamom and cinnamon than the rest, and just a touch of caramel malt. The flavor is dry and all about the cardamom and clove herbal notes, with the same very light hint of caramel. The body is nearly full with a sticky texture, lively carbonation, and a

12oz bottle from The Beer Store Wilson. Dark red hue, murky clarity with fully diminishing medium khaki head. Virtually no lacing. Cinnamon, dark fruit, booze and nutmeg aroma as the beer warms. Light nutmeg up front with more of a cinnamon finish. Didn’t get much if any pumpkin out of this one. Mostly spices and booze. Dry texture on the palate. Okay pumpkin beer.
