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.

Poured into a pint glass, a partly hazy burnished copper sits under a thin head. Toasted biscuity malt aroma with notes of sweet pumpkin and herbal spice. A solid sessionable pumpkin ale with a gentle carbonation and pleasantly spiced pumpkin flavor that is neither too much or too little for what I'd refer to as an "honest" pumpkin taste. Finish is an almost dessert bready dry pumpkin one. I feel like this could pair just as nicely with a slice of Thanksgiving turkey as it could with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Looking forward to the 2012 batch...

A: A clear deep orange pour. Mid-sized bubbly slightly off-white head. Retention is okay. Lacing is okay as well.

S: Pumpkin up front with some decent cinnamon. A bit of nutmeg as it warms up. Fairly mild aroma.

T: Very heavy and unpleasant burnt nutmeg/cinnamon up front. Almost a little like burnt spiced plastic (if that were possible). A little pumpkin behind it.

M: Medium body, carbonation is just about dead on.

O: Odd pumpkin ale. I can't tell if the bad burnt flavor is an "off" flavor or just a bad implementation. Could just be a bad bottle but doesn't taste like any infection I've ever experienced. Maybe will have to retry someday.
