3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Multiple drafts at HTPD Octoberfest. Poured a dark amber with an off white head that had some nice staying power. Malty spicey aroma with notes of pumpkin, cinnamon, and corriander with what appears to be a chocolate malt base. Average to slightly strong carbonation with a medium to full mouthfeel. Flavor has a good dose of pumpkin and spice but not overpowering. Pretty good stuff and it was nice to have some decent beer choices at a PBA picnic.

on tap. Clear amber in color with a medkum off white head. Aroma of spices, pumpkin, caramel malt, clean. Taste is pumpkin, caramel/molasses and spices. Medium bodied. Finishes with lingering pumpkin spice and a very mild bitterness. Clean and well balanced. Nicely done.

Slightly cloudy deep amber pour with off-white head. Aroma of cinnamon, pumpkin and spices. The flavor hits the taste buds with a mix of sweetness and spice followed by a malt/pumpkin combo for some balance. A bit too much in the spice department, but a decent drinking pumpkin ale nonetheless.

Pours beautiful body - hazy orange with small white head. Aroma is defined spice, not crazy but good. Taste isnt bad. Organic twist, etc., spice prevails.

Bottle... Poured a hazy orange with an off-white head that lasted quite awhile. Lots of spices and warm pumpkin on the nose. Foamy and full palate, pretty hoppy with smooth, balancing malt and a backbone of pumpkin flavors. Good pumpkin ale.

Pours deep amber into a shaker. Off-white head with medium retention leaves no lacing. Pumpkin, nutmeg and cinnamon aromas. Crisp and dry with upfront sour pumpkin and a lasting sour spice finish. Aside from the sourness of this beer, it has many good qualitiesl.
