3.66/5  rDev -4.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: Dark copper bordering on dark brown. Light cream foam with a medium carbonation.

S: Vegetable, gourds, cinnamon and nutmeg. Malty caramel. Rich vanilla. Slight alcohol and milky creaminess.

T: Rich malt up front. Strong wheat bread notes. Rich, beefiness and nuttiness of walnuts and almonds. Richness is overtaken by a light tartness and tanginess with cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin celery carrot. The spice finishes like a spice cake with an understated sweetness. Spice grows and grows--a bit too much.

M: Smooth and creamy. Rich and slightly tart and crisp on the finish. Finishes sweet and juicy. Really easy drinking here. Wonderfully balanced and really mellow. Loses points for the pumpkin spice that builds too large as the beer slightly warms.

O: This beer has been sitting in my fridge for about 3 months. I'm Leary of pumpkin beers but I had heard good stuff about this one. After an actual good pumpkin beer experience with red hooks pumpkin porter I figured I'd give one last try. It's good. One of the best pumpkins I've had.. But I've had a lot of terrible pumpkin beers so the average is still low. Recommended if you want to try one last pumpkin beer before giving up altogether.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Pours a lightly chill-hazed medium amber color with a fingers worth of head that fades to nothing in less than a minute

S: Pumpkin pie spices and a light sweetness come through the most. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove come through the most for the spices. Cardamom and ginger also present. Pumpkin come through a little bit as well

T: Starts off with the spices. Again, cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove are the front runners. The crystal wheat provides some sweetness along with the vanilla. Orange peel comes through near the end to give a very light bitterness. Finishes with a mix of the spices and a light sweetness

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A nice, well-balanced pumpkin beer that doesn't go overboard on the pie spices. Seems bigger than 5.6% (probably due to the pumpkins) while still remaining easy to drink. A little pricey as usual with Rogue, but the bottle is cool to show off

750mL bottle poured into a snifter.

(A)- Pours an auburn caramel color. Minimal white froth.

(S)- A good blend of pumpkin with spices. A good underlying richness throughout.

(T)- A bit thin with a caramel and spice sweetness; not much pumpkin.

(M)- A good carbonation level. It is just a bit thin and sweet with a little heat to it.

(O)- With all of the pumpkin beers out there, this for me, gets lost in the middle.

Bottle: Poured a caramel color ale with a rather large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of caramelized malt with some well-balanced notes of pumpkin, cinnamon and cloves. Taste is also a well-balanced mxi between some pumpkin notes with some cinnamon and some cloves with some caramelized malt. Body is about average with good carbonation. Really enjoyable pumpkin beer.
