3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a nice rich copper color with creamy, strong off-white head. Pumpkin-squash notes in the aroma with sweet bread and light spice notes. Full mouthed, moderately sweet, lightly spiced, with good balance of pumpkin and spices. Really an excellent pumpkin/fall beer; I believe this one is underrated.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from a regular bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a mostly clear deep amber color with a large foamy white head with long retention and average cling and lacing. Its aroma featured a blend of malt and spices, including nutmeg, brown sugar, and of course pumpkin. The taste was mostly sweet and malty with a bit of nutmeg, caramel, and spice, but was a touch sour and not well developed. The body was fairly light and wet with a touch of cream and average to low carbonation.

Sample at SBWF 2016.
A bit hazy dark golden with a white head. Aroma and taste of nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, malt and some light caramel. The body was on the light side as was the bitterness. Not my kind of beer but this was a drinkable one.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This was poured into a becher pint glass.
The appearance was a semi-hazy ruddy burnt orange almost brown color with a thin white foamy head that dissipated to a sustaining cap of a head. No lacing.
The aroma starts with sweet pumpkin flesh with mild spices of ginger, cinnamon, and allspice.
The flavor brings it all together nicely with a mild bready sweetness balancing nicely. Bready pumpkin flavor is in the aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a nice sessionable smooth feel to it. Carbonation seems to run at a nice pace.
Overall, I say this was a very good pumpkin ale that I would have again.

Rating #1958 2015.09.26 #CraftTakesSeattle Day 3, Beer 58 Draught at TapHouse Grill Seattle. Clear copper-amber pour, that produces a decent bubbly foam Aroma is potent, quite a bit of cinnamon, nutmeg, toasted cardamom. Taste is malty, more of a brown ale style and heavy on the cardamom and clove, hint of cinnamon, and sweet caramel, faint noble hoppy bitterness. This is a pretty good seasonal, and one of the better pumpkin beers out there.
