12 oz bottle into a tulip glass
A - Pours a gold/orange and cloudy; looks like apple cider, head dissipates quickly
S - cinnamon, spice, fermented apples
T - Mild spice; slight bitter aftertaste
F - sinificant carbonation, frothy
O - It's drinkable and ok, but I'm beginning to realize that I'm not a fan of most Pumpkin Ales; it seems more of a seasonal novelty to me rather than a really good seasonal brew

A sweeter more spice pumpkin ale. I prefer less spice.

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #70 (November 2012):

Pumpkin Ales should have some umph to them right? Evolution gets it with this somewhat brawny brew. Spicing is very well balanced, just enough pumpkin character to round it out. A sure thing if this is the style you are craving and it will definitely stand up as something different and fun to you novice beer drinking friends.

STYLE: Pumpkin Ale
ABV: 6.3%

LOOK: Clear brassy color, solid looking head

SMELL: Cooked pumpkin meat, pie spice, faint ginger, cloves, cake batter, bready

TASTE: Deep smoothness, creamy medium bodied, spicy start, clove, mace, nutmeg, ginger, caramelized pumpkin, mild alcohol warmth, lingering spice, modest hopping, earthy, grassy, slightly dry finish

Traditional pumpkin beer spices cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and sweet malt. Smells great, nothing overbearing. Taste follows suit but in a much subtler fashion. Nice pumpkin pie spices, malty sweetness and subtle earthy spicy hop character on the finish.

A nice take on a Pumpkin Ale. Very subtle all around, and sometimes that a great thing for this style.
