3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted on 5/11/13 from a capped, orange 750mL bottle purchased at Sun Devil. Pours hazy dark auburn with an average beige head that slowly recedes to fairly thin lace. The nose is just like a pumpkin pie, with plenty of baking spices, pumpkin, and caramel malt. The flavor is more focused on the baking spices, is very dry up front, with the pumpkin and caramel malt on the back of the palate. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long cardamom and other baking spices finish.
Pours brown with an off white head that holds well; nice aromas of pumpkin pie and autumn; crisp palate with a mouth coating spicy finish. One of the better pumpkin beers I’ve had. Bricks (1126) - Delaware, USA - MAY 14, 2017
Beautiful beer.. nice head, lacing.. great dark red color. Smells like a Yankee Candle reminiscent of the fall season...Taste is above average for a pumpkin beer.. allspice, etc. it’s all there. Balanced. this might be the best pumpkin beer I’ve had. AleRider78 (1146) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 20, 2017
Pours a foamy off-white creamy head and has a cloudy, dark amber/copper appearance with red hues. Weak lacing. Aromas of pumpkin spice can be found immediately, along with nutty malts and earthy hops. Flavours are similar with huge pumpkin, orange citrus, spices, mild hops and hints of cinnamon. Goes down pretty easy. Nice warming sensation on the palate and slight tnigling mouthfeel as well, fairly slick. Quite enjoyable. Beergaard (338) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JAN 28, 2017
Pretty decent stuff. Caramelish sweetness and loads of pumpkin pie like spices. Not revolutionary, but quite dead on. bdleedahl (437) - , Saskatchewan, CANADA - NOV 24, 2016
Nicely made pumpkin beer. The pumpkin flavour is clean and relatively strong, a little artificial tasting, maybe due to filtering. Bottle in Sk.

Appearance: clear medium amber with a thin beige head that retains poorly, no lacing. (3/5) Aroma: cinnamon, nutmeg, vegetal pumpkin, caramel and brown sugar. (7/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Medium body, lively to moderate carbonation, slightly sweet medium duration finish. (3/5)
Yeah, yeah - another punkin ale. Hey, I figured that since I love to hate on both the brewery and the style, it’s win-win either way: either I get to complain about one or the other (or both), or I get a good beer. And, it’s actually (sorta kinda) a good beer. So, I guess I’m vaguely disappointed that I don’t get to complain. Can I complain about that? Seriously, not bad - definitely as much vegetal pumpkin as spice character, and although it’s sweet it’s at least somewhat balanced by the bittering. I’ve had a lot worse examples of the style, and not many better. (14/20) chadski (141) - California, USA - NOV 13, 2016
Relatively subtle. Overall decides to go more vegetal in its aroma and flavors instead of sweeter and spicier. Decent but not overly impressive.

Draught at Rogue, San Fransisco. Clear derp copper beer with a decent beige head. Fruity spicy aroma, grapes, citrus, some cinnamon. Cinnamon flavor, raisins, close, some earthy notes. Ok. mjmoen (536) - - OCT 14, 2016
B. Pours a clear copper color with white head. Spicy aroma and pumpkin spice beer Sirmixsomewhat (266) - Paoli, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 7, 2016
This beer doesn’t taste like a pumpkin beer so much as it does an Oktoberfest kind of beer. It’s very autumnal and a little spicy, which is nice, but I don’t get much by way of pumpkins. Still very enjoyable and very smooth.
