2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. The pour was a medium hazy copper with a large (2-3 Finger) white rocky head that had great retention and some really good lacing that was left hanging on the glass throughout.
The aroma was of a light toasted malt and a mildly sweet doughy yeast with notes of nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon and of course pumpkin.
The taste was some what sweet and malty with notes of cinnamon and nutmeg from the beginning and had a mild bitterness with a hint of pumpkin and a little bite from the allspice at the end. The flavor lingered for a nice long while allowing for the taste of the spices to settle nicely on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was light on body and watery in texture and had a kind of medicine feel to it with a medium carbonation.
Overall a mild tasting Pumpkin Ale with a slight bitter bite of spices that was left lingering well after the swallow. It was a decent brew which fits with the style rather nicely.

To steal a line from the previous review, it’s a "pumpkin" ale for people who really don’t like pumpkin ale. It’s a decent enough beer but the spices are quite subtle and the pumpkin almost missing.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pretty copper color, slightly clouded, with medium head.
Aroma is limited to gourd, grass, bread. Flavor follows suit plus mild spice, mainly clove, but the overwhelming impression is simply ale: grass, bread and a very slight nod to pumpkin.
This is a beer that seems proficiently made, with GABF criteria in mind rather than as a specialty brew. It’s a "pumpkin" ale for people who really don’t like pumpkin ale. Unobjectionable, but why buy it?

Bottle from Winooski Beverage Warehouse. Aroma: pumpkins, clove, cinnamon. App: clear copper, minimal head. Taste and palate: light to medium body, minimal carbonation, light sweetness. Overall: pretty average. Nothing special in there and clove can be a little too much.

Appearance is medium white head with orange color. Aroma is mostly spices. Taste is a very good blend of those spices and pumpkin. Overall a good pumpkin beer.

Bottle from Total Wines. A fairly run of the mill pumpkin ale, red in colour, hazy and sweet, with a touch of spice in the finish. Fine.

Watery pumkin ale that enjoyable but not overly exciting. Probably good for those that are easily overwhelmed by the spices.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Light amber pour, slightly cloudy with a medium off white fizzy head. Aroma of pumpkin pie, bread and sweet sugar. Very drinkable, not sure why the rating is so low, this is delicious and not overly sweet or spiced as many of the style tend to do.
