This pours a hazy, copper orange color with a frothy beige head. The aroma is mild with pumpkin tones and a hint of spice. The taste is decent with a medium body with decent pumpkin flavor. There is a bit of an awkward after taste. This brew is kind of in the middle of the road as far as pumpkin beers go.

A: A light orange brown color and a decent amount of haze, with a light tan head.

S: Definite pumpkin pie spice, as well as a good bit of gourd as well. Somewhat subtle and bready finishing with brown sugar and cinnamon.

T: Fairly light bread notes, with pumpkin pie spice taking up the rear. The pumpkin spice isn't too prevalent, but that might contribute to the beers repeat-ability, however it also delivers a dose of 'meh' to it.

M: Medium to medium light with moderate carbonation, and a bit of a linger.

O: Overall decent, I can see downing a few pints in a bar with friends, but then would quickly move on to something else more interesting.

this is a pretty good pumpkin ale - had it out of a can which i prefer not too overpowering with the spices - not very pumpkin-y either - very well balanced, clean, and sessionable

Pretty OK. Poured out of a can into a sampling glass. Pretty orange-honey color that reminds of pumpkins and autumn. Pumpkin ales seem to be a big deal this year, must be everyone trying to clone Elysian Night Owl and then add their particular spin...I typically enjoy pumpkin more with a dark roast profile, e.g. pumpkin porters.

A = nice, decent white creamy head that falls fast, nice lacing
S = faint pumpkin and spice, malt
T = pumpkin, more subtle spice than other pumpkin ales.
M = medium sweetness, medium soft on the pallet, low carbonation
O = 3.75. Nice example of what appears to be a style that's becoming standard for the autumn.

Today its 90 in Boulder, CO - I wonder if I drink this on a chilly 50 degree day in early Nov what I'll think...

12oz bottle. Code date 1/14/16. Appearance: Amber/light brown with a slight haziness and frothy off white head and decent lacing. Aroma: Pumpkin spice (cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice) with a light toastiness. Taste: Medium malt sweetness with strong bready and toasty malt flavors. The pumpkin spicing in the aroma is strangely missing on the tongue. A slight cooked pumpkin and nutmeg flavor show up on the swallow, but overall taste profile is fairly one demensional. Mouthfeel: Medium body with a low to moderate carbonation. Finish: Enough bitterness to balance, finishing with a lingering toasted malt and light pumpkin spice. Overall: A very low spiced pumpkin beer. Nice bready and toasty malt backbone, but while the pumpkin spice shows up in the aroma it’s almost non existent in the taste.

Probably not as bad as I scored it...but my palette was tainted by the goodness of Pumking. Typically love Uinta, but not their best.

What a concept, a pumpkin ale that tastes more like pumpkin than cinnamon.

It has a pretty reddish brown color, with lots of lacing. The aroma is weak but pleasant.

The taste is like a mild ale with pumpkin and a little spice. Unlike many of the style the spice does not overpower the pumpkin.

The aftertaste is a clean ale with not much pumpkin. This could stand to be bigger and sweeter, but it's a nicely balanced pumpkin ale as is.
