3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz. bottle Pours a hazy brownish copper colar with a thin light tan head that leaves spotty lacing. smells of cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, pie crust and pumpkin. Tastes of all the same things in the smell but a burnt pie crust flavor is there as well I’m assuming from the dark chocolate used. Mouthfeel is creamy and silky with medium carbonation. Pretty good Pumpkin ale all around. They did a very good job on making me imagine eating pumpkin pie.

Just enjoyed this on tap; as a bit of background, waitress suggested it as a brown ale option, did not give any indication this was a pumpkin ale, which I probably would have declined had I known. As it happened, I was pleasantly surprised by this subtly pumpkin-accented brown ale, which features both solid caramel malt flavors, a bit of hoppy bitterness, and a pumpkin spice seasonal flair. The appearance to start out was also exceptional, with a full amber-brown hue and an off-white creamy head. Aroma did not explicitly betray the pumpkin flavor, featured standard caramel maltiness with some nutmeg and other spices. Taste was primarily somewhere between a standard amber ale and brown ale, with caramel malt and a moderate earthy hop bitterness, but then had a comfortably present-but-not-overwhelming pumpkin/ pumpkin spice flavor. Smooth and medium-bodied, just a comfortable beer to drink. I haven’t ventured to try many pumpkin-infused ales, but if they’re more on the nuanced side such as this, I may have to. Well-done overall.

31st Jan 2017: 12oz can at my Son-in-Laws place, California. Wow, Pumpkin and Cinnamon rule this brew from start to finish, never had such a powerful ’Pumpkin Ale’ before (that I remember). Looked good, had a wonderful (spiced Pumpkin) aroma and taste: my sweet tooth loved it, my beer tasting head however struggled to fit in the flavours and I have had to score objectively rather than with my sweet tooth.

From a 12 oz bottle into a Rodenbach stem glass. Pours brown with head and lace. Aroma of nutmeg, caramel malts, cinnamon. Significant carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of pale malts, grains, cinnamon, nutmeg, gourd, minerals, seasonal spices. Overall rich and tasty if you like this style with interesting balance between the spices and malt-gourd base, with an emphasis on spice.
