Poured from a can

Appearance - Cloudy amber/ copper body with virtually no head. What head was poured disappears quickly and leaves a nice bubbling top.

Aroma -Pumpkin, brown sugar

Taste -Moderate pumpkin, alcohol and somewhat watery; backend is somewhat disappointing as there is no lingering taste

Mouthfeel -Thin and light bodied, medium to low carbonation

Overall -Average pumpkin beer. More flavor and spices would make it better. Aroma was the best part in my opinion. Worth a try for sure.

Look: It pours dark amber with an off white head. Head retention is moderately low.

Smell: It has strong spicy aromas that feature cinnamon and allspice. There is also some nutmeg and low pumpkin. There is a very low caramel note.

Taste: The flavors feature cinnamon and allspice. There is nutmeg and cardamon. It is a bit sweet with sugary notes that may be brown sugar. It also has pumpkin and light caramel.

Feel: It has a medium body with a somewhat sweet aftertaste.

Overall, I like in your face spiciness for pumpkin ales which for me makes this an enjoyable fall beer.

This beer is superb. I've never had a pumpkin beer like this. It is very malty and dark flavored with the perfect amount of pleasant spices. It feels higher abv than it is and that's a good thing (probably from the ginger burn). This beer strangely reminds me of a spiced dunkelbock double. Very malty and dark. I love it!

Rogue Pumpkin Patch pours a frothy 2in. head over a coppery, slightly cloudy body. The scent is mild, with allspice, cloves, cinnamon, wheat, and vanilla notes. The taste is also on the mild side, with a yeasty push on the aftertaste. The head has good retention, and the lacing is more substantial than a typical pumpkin brew. The mouthfeel is slightly watery. All elements are decent to good, there are no major flaws or detriments to Pumpkin Patch, and at 6.1% ABV, it is eminently drinkable. I wish there were something a bit more compelling here.. the slight cloud visually clues that there is some real pumpkin within, but it tastes like more was needed. The spices are nicely blended, but also a bit understated. The base is nice.. but Rogue Pumpkin Patch Ale needs more detail and finesse, to elevate above its' seasonal rivals.

Canned on 6/22/21. 16oz can poured into a tulip. Pours amber; small off-white head that fades leaving solid lacing and retention. Nice color. The aromas have your typical pumpkin spices. Cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. Some caramel. Malts are there. The flavors follow the nose. The spices lead the way. More cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. The ginger is very pronounced. More caramel along with some mild hints of cocoa. Moderate to low bitterness. Any bitterness is coming from the spices. Mild sweetness. Malts do their thing. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with active carbonation. It's sharp, spritzy, smooth and slightly fluffy.

This is a solid pumpkin ale. It's straight forward for the style, but not in a bad way. It might not be unique or different for the style, but it's still enjoyable stuff. It has everything that you'd look for in the style, more or less.

This one pours a golden amber orange-ish color, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

This smells like bitter nuttiness, pumpkin seeds, a sort of bitter herbal aroma, and some light spice.

This is oddly bitter for the stye, and there's no real spice character. The pumpkin is done nicely, roasted and almost smokey, with light caramelization. The bitter nuttiness is just slightly off-putting, and it almost feels a little bit stale on the back end.

This starts out smooth, but then ends kind of astringent on the back end. The beer itself feels very thin, as well.

I haven't had anything from Rogue in years, and this beer shows why I had been staying away.

A: dark cherry and mahogany color with some dark ruby red. 1 finger dark tan head

S: pumpkin meat. Butternut squash, nutmeg, coriander, clove, cinnamon. Sweet caramel, more squash and pumpkin. The bottle has a tasting note of shortbread cookies, and I agree!

M: solid medium mouthfeel with strong moderate carbonation

O: this is a really nice pumpkin ale. Meaty squash flavor and pumpkin spice. It’s mellow yet in tact

Look: Pours a drabby, light brown with a beige one finger head of foam that fizzles away quickly. A thin ring remains; leaving no lacing. Opaque.

Aroma: Roasted chocolate malt. Toasted bread and of course pumpkin. Almost to the degree of pumpkin pie. Cinnamon is restrained. Mildly tart.

Taste: Very mild. It tastes good but its quite light. Pumpkin only comes through gradually over the course of the tasting experience, it doesn't jump out at you. Cinnamon isn't overbearing at least. Mild chocolate malt richness plays a supporting role in the back with a bit of rye bread.

Feel: Very watery. Somewhat flat. Light body. Low carbonation.

Overall: There isn't much to comment on unfortunately. It's not bad but it's very underwhelming. I wish it had more flavor and body.
