3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance was an amber/orange sort of color with a small quarter fingerís worth of head. Spreading speckled lace.
The aroma had some pumpkin sweetness, some allspice and ginger.
The flavor kept the sweet pumpkin and malty sort of body to it. Caramel/toffee tones come out decently. Allspice and ginger seem to play a little bit with some black pepper. All seems to combine decently but there wasnít any aftertaste. Just a pumpkin malty sort of finish.
The feel was about medium bodied. Malts play a good part in this department and keep some energy against the carbonation which ends up keeping a decent sort of aptitude on my tongue.
Overall, decent pumpkin ale worthy to have again if I lived closer.

Sample at the Wausau, WI location. Medium clear (pumpkin) amber-orange with a small lasting head...big pumpkin-pie spicy nose, not much more...moderately sweet malty body, pumpkin is subdued, full with a light peppery bitterness to finish.

What do you do when you are in Wausau for the hollidays? Thatís right, go to the bar. Tried their pumpkin brew. Nice spice to it, but not overwelming. A solid beer.
