A: Orange brown and clear with an aggressive pour you get a 2 finger head that dies back quickly to a skim coating the top
S: Yeast and nuttiness very little spice in the nose almost nonexistent.
F: soft carbonation that feels almost creamy with a light to medium mouth feel. Smooth
T: Light yeast and grain with just enough hop spice to dry you palate. I can barely taste any pumpkin and I am straining to find the spice profile. It tastes like a generic amber ale.
O: Disappointed no pumpkin or spice sticks out in any sort of way. If you want a pumpkin ale for a domestic only drinker this is the bland one for them. Not offensive in anyway because there isn't much flavor.

Nice light amber brown pumpkin ale with strong spice and light malty notes.

Not the best pumpkin ale. Has more bite than smoothness. The flavor profile of spices is lacking as well. It seems I'm forcing myself to drink the last bit.

Don't really understand why the beer has such a a low score. It's a great pumpkin beer and one of the very few that are session-able. This years version is 4% ABV. Also love that there using real pumpkin in this one. I'm a fan of this one, great easy drinking and fun beer for being only 4%, great stuff.

I try to get Uinta's Punk'n every year, and, were there not so many other pumpkin beers to try in the fall, I would try to get a lot of them. This years offering is more floral and less spicy/warm than I remember from other years, but in a way I think that might make it more drinkable. The smell has a pleasant almost nutty/yeastiness that really pulls me in this year. The texture is a little more watery than I prefer for a beer with this flavor profile. Also to be noted is the labeling, which has been updated and is always ahead of the design curve.

Pumpkin Rating:
Great, and the color and smells do a lot to help, but not as magical as previous years (though maybe I am looking back with Pumpkin colored glasses).
Would drink again:
Oh yes! This years offering is especially good for multiple drinks in one evening.

I'm enjoying this but I'm not sure I have the right beer. No where do I see "harvest" on the label. I'd add it as a new beer, but I can't find an ABV either. Whatever. It's a dark copper color, smells of pumpkin pie spices and tastes the same. A light feel, overall quite good.

I remember being unimpressed by this beer when I had it this past winter, as if it was just an ordinary ale with a little bit of pumpkin flavor (although it may have been a bit beyond it's 'best by' date).

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Look: Golden copper hue... very clear. Not much of a head didn't make it to 2 finger.
Smell: Slight malt, caramel, and some spice.
Taste: Some tartness upfront, but not sure if it is hops at work or other ingredients. A bit sweet and spices kick in. Not too much spice, but just about right. Not very flavorful other than some spice and malt. Tastes a bit weak. I was hoping for a more rich and dark flavor.
Feel: Medium - Low body. Did seem a bit thin for an ale.
Overall: It's ok. I have had worse and I have had better. Middle of the road pumpkin ale. Decent to try. I just prefer more powerful pumpkin beers.

Pour is a medium golden amber with decent foamy head. Smells of nutmeg and cloves with a mix of pumpkin and malt. Taste is very sweet with nutmeg and pumpkin mix, very smooth and light flavors. The finish is easy and clean, mild spice mix and overall not too bad. I would rate this a light pumpkin style, it has a very laid back taste but not lacking just very mild. Would have another, not a bad beer.
