Served from the bottle into nonic glass

A- Poured a dark brownish orange color with soapy off-white head with huge bubbles that left splashy lace.

S- Very big nutmeg notes, ginger, pumpkin, bready, and caramel notes.

T- Lots of nutmeg, ginger, and pumpkin flavor with some caramel and bready notes.

M- Lighter bodied, prickly carbonation, somewhat watery finish but not bad for a 4% ABV ale with quite a bit of flavor.

O- This is a really solid pumpkin ale with the nice pumpkin spices you expect and a nice bready and caramel malt base.

Uinita Punk'n pours a stoic tawny color with a slight haze to it. There's somewhat vigorous carbonation going on, and the beverage has got a quarter-inch sticky, frothy cream head. With a good whiff I can definitely state that I detect actual, natural pumpkin here. Like the inside of a real raw pumpkin. Authentic! Also, taking a back seat, the slew of usual spices such as cinnamon and nutmeg. The flavor is quite close to the aroma, and in this case, it's a beautiful thing. This is a clean tasting real pumpkin beer. Not too over the top and also it still tastes like a beer, with light hops and biscuity malt identifiable in the taste. This tastes remarkably full and coats the mouth great for only a 4% alcohol beer. The flavor lingers nicely in the finish as well. I would buy this again, which is a phrase not thrown around lightly with pumpkin ales, unfortunately.

look: 4 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.25

Appearance: Definitely an amber ale exactly what i'd expect from a pumpkin ale. Some head is obvious upon the pour but little remains after it dissipates. There is a little bit left on the surface of the beer a while after the pour.

Smell: This is no so much a great smelling beer. I smell a little bit of spices, and not so much many pumpkin. The smell really doesn't impress me very much.

Taste: At first all i can think of is alcohol. There is alot of spice that hits me upon tasting this beer, but almost no pumpkin. This is a bit disappointing.

Mouthfeel: A medium thick beer with medium carbonation. Works in its favor because its been disappointing otherwise.

Overall: Appearance its great, but smell was the first drop and the taste didn't help. If those had anchored this beer, then the mouthfeel would have only help but all in all this is below mediocre.

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

Appearance - Clear, mildly carbonated, amber head, and inviting. Light amber to orange appearing ale.

Smell - Spicy pumpkin bread scent with a clean aroma.

Taste - Heavy pumpkin flavor, delicious and refreshing. Well balanced and not overpowering with sweetness.

Mouthfeel - Nice on the palate, crisp flavor and smooth

Overall - Enjoyed this beer with Bison Meatloaf and Broccoli which seemed a good fit. Very enjoyable beer and would drink again without hesitation.

12oz bottle poured into a snifter.

A: Pours a slightly hazy copper amber with a thin white head. Can see some visible carbonation in the body. Leaves some nice lacing on the side of the glass.

S: Pleasant aroma reminiscent of a pumpkin pie. Malts are more full than some pumpkin beers I have had and aren't overpowered by spice. Rich aroma.

T: Mild tempered pumpkin brew that is rounded out nicely by a full malt body. Spice and pumpkin are fairly strong but don't necessarily take center stage.

M: Medium to full body with a nice creaminess. Somewhat low carbonation. Isnt too sticky from the sweetness.

Overall I'm a fan of this beer. A little different than the other pumpkin beers on the market but still is true to pumpkin pie roots. Give it a go.

Just one of those days, my peeps. So far it's just one of those average beer days. Like a 5 dollar footlong, it will do the trick, but Raul ain't pumped. A lil too syrupy like Aunt Jemimah, and the mouthfeel falls a bit flat like Raul's college sweetheart. (Raul will always remember you, girl.)

Raul does not recommend.
