3.5/5  rDev -6.4%

Appearance - orange body with thin white head

Smell - cinnamon, ginger, clove

Taste - much like the smell, but unrefined, feels like i bit into a whole 16 pack of big red gum, blast of cinnamon, also clove and ginger in the mix

Mouthfeel - medium bodied, medium carbonation, very sweet upfront with the cinnamon, astringent finish

Overall - mid range pumpkin ale that I didnt find a balance of malt and spices. Too much cinnamon for my liking. If you like the sweeter pumpkin ales like Pumpking, this may be to your liking

Price Point - $2.50/12 oz single

3.03/5  rDev -19%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3

Appearance: Pours a clear amber verging on burnt orange; the head builds to two inches and leaves some splashy lacing

Smell: An odd combination of vegetal and caramel aromatics that don't scream pumpkin - perhaps more like a smashed pumpkin that sat out in the sun on an Indian Summer day; pie spices supplement the malt backbone

Taste: Buttery caramel and graham cracker tones open, with the pie spices building in the middle; harsh grain alcohol-like flavors dominate, after the swallow; some pumpkin can be found in the finish, but it is not easy

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation; considerable warmth in the gullet

Overall: Having pretty much given up on this brewery, I was pleasantly surprised by the Smashed Blueberry and decided to give Smashed Pumpkin a whirl - wish I hadn't
