Good beer, but was a little less smooth than I would have liked. A bit more spices like cinnamon would go a long way, too.

Another 4% Utah beer.

Hazy brown color and a thin tan colored head.

Smells mostly of pumpkin spice but not very strongly. Slight medicinal scent like a band-aid.

Tastes initially of pie crust and spice. Mild pumpkin beer flavor but the lack of body hurts it.

Watery and mildly bitter.

Overall a try it once and forget it type of beer.

3.1/5  rDev -14.1%

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on December 25, 2013.

The color is mostly orange with a lasting white head and a foggy appearance.

The aroma is of vague pumpkin with nutmeg, clove, brown sugar and biscuit.

The body is light to medium.

The taste is rather bland. I do pick up the toasted biscuit and spice character of a typical pumpkin ale but it seems to just sit there with no excitement.

Poured into a shaker pint. Bottled on 8/8/13.

Barely any off-white foam produced by the pour, just a ring around the edge of the glass for coverage. Body is the color of maple syrup with copper highlights. Some streams of bubbles in there as well.

This pumpkin, right out of the bottle cold, smelled astringent with notes of fake pumpkin spicing, much like you find in a craft store when October rolls around. Letting it sit and breathe for ten minutes produces warmer scents of cinnamon, vanilla, some clove, and the lightest impression of a graham cracker-like malt. Much better spiced and sweet profile!

Palate has a syrupy vanilla note that is far too big for this pumpkin beer. It clashes with the spicing, that comes off much sweeter on the palate, still notes of clove and cinnamon. A graham-cracker, wheat bread malt also appears at the swallow. If that cloying, syrupy flavor was not so prominent, the beer would be all the better for it.

Not much to say for the feel, finishes a little dry and is definitely watery. Just enough carbonation to pass it off as a medium-light body.

Wasatch Pumpkin takes the drinker all over the place when it comes to flavors, scents, and general impressions. While it is certainly much improved by letting it warm up and breathe a little, the cloying and syrupy vanilla-like flavor on the palate is too much. The spicing is fine, just needs to reign in that flavor. I would not search this pumpkin ale out again.
