One of the better pumpkin brews I’ve tried this season. Very easy drinking, not too spicy. Wish someone would make the Michigan Brewing Company Screamin’ Pumpkin this year. That’s my fave.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Crystal clear burnt copper with a thin off-white head. Nose was thick with pumpkin pie aromas of sweet pumpkin goo, creamy biscuit, nutmeg, and a bit of ginger. The flavor is a little lacking in body and complexity but I like how it’s not over spiced. Nice clean caramel/earthy pumpkin backbone with some pumpkin-pie-spices, and a lingering nutmeg/ginger finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Freshcraft - hazy dark copper beer - fairly clean and refreshing for a pumpkin ale - moderate malt profile with a wee bit of tanginess - strong spice profile, but nothing overpowering or overdone - quite a bit of nutmeg and cinnamon spiciness - the pumpkin itself comes through a bit in the finish - understated, which is nice in this style.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tasted on tap at Wynkoop Brewery in Denver, Colorado. Color similar to an Amber Ale. Light and highly spiced. I’m think it’s nutmeg and/or pumpkin spice.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy dark amber. Pie spice aroma. Medium body. Seems to have actual pumpkin flavor - mild on spice. So a bit bland, but a refreshing pumpkin version.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy cloudy reddish brown with a medium white head. Has a very pumpkiny starchy flavor with far less pie spices than most beers of this ilk. It’s good, but it’s not great.

Draft Wynkoop 11/4/08-Pours a murky deep amber with a nice covering for a head. Aroma of slight pumpkin. Taste of pumpkin and spices. This medium bodied beer has nice pumpkin flavor but finishes with that same funky aftertaste.
