look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

one of the 13 ingredients is free range water..Thank God for that...wouldn't want captive water in my beer...no Sirree..

Seemed to be a bit darker in color, cloudier, and certainly not as bright as some pumpkin ales I've sampled. Off white head fizzles down to a slight cap leaving some gobs of lacing.

Aroma, for a pumpkin ale is disappointing. Faint hints of nutmeg, roasted malts, your typical pumpkin pie spice spectrum. But I like it to be more upfront...just how I roll..

Gonna agree with a fellow reviewer in so much as I like the balance in the flavors. The spice doesn't overpower the malts, which I found to have a slight chocolate undertone which blends well with the spice mix...a nice, fresh approach.

Had the mouthfeel at 3.5, but as I worked through the pint I found it got flatter. This coupled by a too fizzy beginning = a meh average. Certainly not as full bodied as I was expecting from a Rogue Ale.

Some good things to take from this sampling..I really like the flavour as they were a fresh take on this style. This beer falls flat, literally, with it's carbonation. Too agressive in front, not enough in the finale.

3.83/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Dark orange-y amber. Bordering on light brown. Deep color.

Sweet vanilla, pumpkin spices, clove, allspice, and nutmeg. Has a fervent spiciness, but the mellow sweetness is appealing. Malty and sonorous. Hops are at a premium around here.

Thinner flavor than expected. Vanilla, clove, cinnamon, and pumpkin flesh. Malty flavors with added hop bitterness. Spicy notes also reminds me of coriander.

Drinks pretty easy. Has a good bout of carbonation. Body is unmemorably medium.

A good pumpkin ale. I would recommend.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours hazy copper with a large creamy head.
Nose shows cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves along with a soft but unmistakable pumpkin hit amongst sweet malty gingerbread notes.
More spices as flavours along with very subtle pumpkin, gingerbread and some herbal astringency. Wouldn't mind a longer-lasting sweet malty finish. Nonetheless, very enjoyable stuff.
Nice creamy mouthfeel. Could be just a little thicker though.

Serving type: on-tap
