Draft taster. This one is the Pumpkin Fest turned up a few notches. Has an abundance of pumpkin spice on the nose and palate. A little more candy sweetness on the nose and bitterness on the finish.

Bomber. Dark orange amber colored with a half-inch of off-white head. Aroma is a mix of baked pumpkin, nutmeg and brown sugar. Taste blends pumpkin pie and caramel malt upfront with a bit of cinnamon and allspice in the finish. The overall flavor does a relatively good job of showcasing the pumpkin and spice notes.

On Tap at the Boise Brewpub Pretty clear amber with a nice fine soapy wispy head. Sturdy thin sheets of lacing,. Big sweet holiday pumpkin spice aroma. Lots of sharp chemical spiciness in the flavor, dominating the pumpkin pie flavors that are there...but less than I was hoping. Fairly dry, and rather bitter but mostly spicy. Lots of flavor, bold but not what I was hoping for.
