3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sugary-sweet nose. Sweet and chewy malt backbone; easy to drink and flavorful. Cinnamon aroma comes out up front; allspice is big in the middle; and then a sugary cinnamon in the finish. Nice amount of spices -- not too much, not too little. Balances with the malts well. Hops blend nicely with the spices also, adding a little bitterness to the mix.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Reddish orange in color; very little head. Aroma of sugar and pumpkin. Not terribly complex. Sweet, brown sugar notes not as spiced as most pumpkin ales. Very drinkable and quite enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at BJís In Mesquite, TX. Pours a clear, deep orange/amber with beige creamy head. Aroma of strong pumpkin, nutmeg, some cinnamon and malt. Flavor is much the same with a strong spiciness and solid malty backbone with a very nice sweetness. Mouthfeel is medium body, medium-high carbonation, solid body. Overall I felt this was one of the tastier pumpkin brews I had this year. Good stuff!

[Tap] Pours a bright orange color with a small amount of white head. Nose is of clove, ginger and nutmeg. Sweet and malty in taste. Caramel and some toffee notes throughout. Typical pumpkin pie spices with a heavy emphasis on ginger. The body is a bit thin, but really not too bad. High carbonation level and easy to drink. It was good to try.
