3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A lighter body than I would have expected. Pale gold with a thin but clinging white head. There is more spice than pumpkin in the aroma. The clove stands out over anything else. Medium mouthfeel with some nice carbonation. The flavor is decent, but there are better pumpkin ales out tehre. Some malty sweetness up front gives way to the spices. Again, the clove dominates, although I can taste some cinnamon. Not bad.
Tap, ADT. Clear golden orange with a small white head. Pumpkin pie spice, white pepper, grassy hops, bread. Light bodied, mild malt finish. OK. jschmidtjr (1) - - SEP 30, 2017 does not count
Good taste up front but an earthy aftertaste I'm not a fan of. Great aroma.

Very noticeable pumpkin and cinnamon aroma, refreshing and sweet, tad of spice at the end. Good autumn beer!

Draft. Amber body with frothy, off-white head. Aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg, citrus, clove. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Thin to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Lots of spices, lingering bitterness. Just OK.

Bottle from Whole Foods, Tenleytown. Orange body with slight head. Nose is pumpkin, spices. Taste of spices, nutmeg, pumpkins and caramel. Smooth texture. Sweet and spicy in the finish. Weevo (176) - Indiana, USA - OCT 2, 2016
Bottle from beer club. Pours mahogany with no head. All the usual suspects for a fall seasonal beer, pumpkin and spices with a smooth finish. Overall, not so overbearing you don't want another.

My favorite pumpkin ale!!! I got into pumpkin ales about 3 or so years ago and by far this one is my absolute favorite. The pumpkin spice and nutmeg are a nice combo (of course) and with this ale they are not overpowering but you know that you are drinking a pumpkin ale. I look forward to every September when this is available.
