look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A: Pours a clear orange with two fingers of off-white head that fades into a thin ring with little lacing.

S: Pumpkin spices up front with creamy vanilla and some squashy pumpkin aromas as well. Nice.

T: Pumpkin spices here as well followed by an odd, slightly sour flavor with a bready finish.

M: Medium body and carbonation, this beer is carbonated enough to avoid being watery, though I'd like it a bit creamier.

O: A fairly mediocre pumpkin ale overall. It smells nice, but the taste is rather bland and odd.

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

A: The beer is relatively clear amber in color and has a moderate amount of carbonation. It poured with a finger high off white head that quickly died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and webs of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: There are light aromas of pumpkin spices in the nose—cinnamon and nutmeg seem to stand out in particular. Notes of pumpkin also become noticeable as the beer warms up.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and seems to have a little more of a pumpkin flavor, especially as the beer begins to warm up. There is also a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. There are some hints of dryness in the finish.
O: This is an enjoyable pumpkin beer if you want some flavors of spices and pumpkins and something that doesn’t seem sweet and artificial.

I have to admit I"am not big on drinking pumpkin ales when it's 90 degrees still outside but I bought the first one of the year today.Poured into a nonic a clear deep burnt orange with a 1/2 finger white head that left no lace as it settled pretty quickly.This is a spiced ale no doubt with aromas of cardamom and clove dominating,a little sweet alcohol and cinnamon sharpness comes into play but is on the lighter side.Flavors are as well spiced with cardamom being the major player,there is a bit of drying in the finish.Well the label says a pumpkin spiced ale and that is what it is no doubt,spiced but not overly sweet so not bad.

12 oz bottle. First pumpkin beer of the year!

A: Pours a brilliant clear orange/amber. Nice thin creamy head that keeps, leaves nice lacing.

S: Very pumpkin forward, some pie spices (nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon), also a hint of lemon grassyness.

T: Nicely balanced, pumkins up front, some of those same pumpkin pie spices, some slightly earthy/herbal hops at the end. Hints of honey and lemon in there too. Finishes rather sweet, with a buttered crust flavor. Definitely on the sweet side.

M: High carbonation, light in body, but has a nice syrupy/creaminess to it. A bit sweet to be a session beer but I could have a few.

O: Impressed with this one, kind of like a mix of smuttynose and Pumking. Its not overly spiced, pumkin flavor shines through, but theres definitely some pie sweetness going on. One of the better pumpkin beers out there.
