3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Big pumpkin pie aroma. Medium to dark color for a Pumpkin Ale, nice and murky. The taste is full and spicy, but somewhat different a lot of beers it’s style. The spicing is well done and very balanced, earthy nuances and hops coming through. Harshly underrated thus far at 3.15, this one is recommended for those inclined to enjoy the style. Excellent.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bubbly amber-orange color with a taller beige head. Pumpkin pie scents with a bit of acidity in the background. Not sure if it is the ginger or if there is some something lactic in the there, but only tasting will tell. Light caramel start, middle is lactic, which then turns to spicy. Lots of ginger. Less parts of nutmeg, cinnamon and clove. I’m starting to attribute some of the lactic taste to the cloves verses the ginger. Still acidic and biting in feel. Not enough malt depth or sweetness for my liking and the acidity really throws thing off.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Multiple drafts at HTPD Octoberfest. Poured a dark amber with an off white head that had some nice staying power. Malty spicey aroma with notes of pumpkin, cinnamon, and corriander with what appears to be a chocolate malt base. Average to slightly strong carbonation with a medium to full mouthfeel. Flavor has a good dose of pumpkin and spice but not overpowering. Pretty good stuff and it was nice to have some decent beer choices at a PBA picnic.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber body with too much in the way of head. Aroma is of pumpkin spices, namely cinnoman. Taste is a little bit sweet, and obviously very spicy. Easy drinking through and through. Pumpkin and spice flavors are most prominent towards the finish.

Pours deep amber into a shaker. Off-white head with medium retention leaves no lacing. Pumpkin, nutmeg and cinnamon aromas. Crisp and dry with upfront sour pumpkin and a lasting sour spice finish. Aside from the sourness of this beer, it has many good qualitiesl.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled 071013. Nose full of spice, cinnamon and allspice, and some mild earthier character. Pours an attractive neon orange with a sudsy beige head. Taste is only very lightly sweet, a little grainy and seemingly wheaten, spice is there but thankfully pulled back, and pulled back into a sustainable balance with the malt. No really bitterness or hops, some earthy character, fullish body and enjoyable enough.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle I think from vintage estates. Smell is sweet spicey pumpkin, but not overwhelming. Taste is unsweetened pumpkins and asssociated spices. Typical pumpkin beer. Sometimes a tad creamy. Finish is somewhat mild bitter medicine. Not bad overall, I guess. Sometimes has that old lager thing going on in there.
Earlier Rating: 9/26/2008 Total Score: 2.6
Must be new, very few ratings. Sweet punky aroma. Pale brown at first when poured. Clear pour goes swirling towards end of bottle. Taste is a blend of pumpkin spices and bitter ale. Decent friendly sparkly carbonation. Veggie unrefined back of throat impression. Palate indicates good carbonation. Some lingering bitterness in the finish.

Bottle. Pours an amber orange body with an off white head. Spicy mess of flavors like cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice with a bread y malt bill to back it up. It all comes across sort of thin and slick. Eh not there best unfortunately.
