2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
POured a light orange color with a big white head. Aroma was of lots of nutmeg and a bit of biscut. Flavor was spices, then really hollow and watery in the middle and then a sweeter pie crust swallow, not horrible, but not everything fits together.

Bottle from jjpm74 Thanks Nice aroma of spice and some underlying sweetness clove etc Pours a orange amber tone The flavor is where it all goes wrong It is vegetal and bitter tart unpleasant with none of the nice spice that was in the nose After the tart vegetal aspect comes a bitter earthy finish The flavor is acrid and bad really The nose was nice and I wish the flavor would have followed through

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Trade from BMan113VR - Thanks! pours cloudy brownish orange, with a thin ring of foam. Smells like ginger, pumpkin, and nutmeg, maybe some clove, too. Flavor is similiar, with a vegetal pumpkin not up front, and cinnamon, ginger and other spices in the background. As it warms, an odd metallc note emerges.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a clear bright orange body with a one finger frothy beige head that left some light lacing. The nose is pretty typical Pumpkin Ale, heavy spicing with lots of caramel sweetness, minimal actual pumpkin. The flavor isn’t all that crazy with the spicing though. In fact, there isn’t really a whole lot of flavor at all. It’s rather bland with just some caramel sweetness and light cinnamon on the finish. One of the weaker efforts at a Pumpkin. Lighter bodied but still a bit clingy with fizzy carbonation. Pretty boring stuff.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Big pumpkin pie aroma. Medium to dark color for a Pumpkin Ale, nice and murky. The taste is full and spicy, but somewhat different a lot of beers it’s style. The spicing is well done and very balanced, earthy nuances and hops coming through. Harshly underrated thus far at 3.15, this one is recommended for those inclined to enjoy the style. Excellent.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours an amber orange body with an off white head. Spicy mess of flavors like cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice with a bread y malt bill to back it up. It all comes across sort of thin and slick. Eh not there best unfortunately.
