3.83/5  rDev +2.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: The beer is slightly hazy yellowish orange in color and has a moderate amount of carbonation. It poured with a finger high beige head that settled down but never completely faded away.
S: The beer smells just like pumpkin pie and has some notes of alcohol.
T: The taste is very similar to the smell, except that the flavor of alcohol isn’t as strong—although some hints of it are still noticeable. There are also some notes of sweetness.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate to high amount of carbonation. There is a bit of warming from the alcohol in the finish.
O: This beer has a good amount of flavors of pumpkins and spices and is relatively easy to drink because it isn’t that sweet and the alcohol is well masked from the taste.

3.8/5  rDev +1.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

A: Pours a very slightly hazy copper to reddish brown in color with some light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a two finger tall creamy beige head that slowly reduces to a small patch of large bubbles, a thin film covering the entire surface of the beer, and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices (nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, and allspice) with some light hints of sweetness. Also, there is a very light presence of alcohol in the smell.

T: There are some light notes of sweetness upfront in this beer (almost like a cream soda sweetness). There are moderate flavors of pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices - nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, allspice, and vanilla.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light amounts of alcohol warming in the finish.

O: Enjoyable with very good pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices which are in good balance with one another. Easy to drink because the beer is not overly sweet and the alcohol is pretty well hidden in the taste - though at 9% ABV this is very much a sipping beer.

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
