3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bomber. Golden orange with a little head. Lots of spice (nutmeg mainly), a bit of vanilla on the nose. Taste isn’t too sweet, crystal and pumpkin. Um, yeah, a typical pumpkin ale, better than the cloying ones, worse than the thicker ones.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep ruby/orange with light foamy head. Pumkin pie aroma, heavy on spices. Hearty taste, mild sweetness balanced by strong malt backbone. Medium-bodied, smooth, mildly carbonated, spicy finish. More aggressive than some of the other pumpkin ales I’ve tried this year (that’s a good thing).

On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a dark orange with a white head. Strong aroma of pumpkin, nutmeg and coriander. Flavour follows accordingly. Nice spiced ale.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from Brewery Creek:
Poured a dark amber with a small head. Strong pumpkin pie, cinnamon, allspice aroma. This carried through to the flavour, fairly light in body with a malty finish.
Meh...a fine pumpkin ale but nothing ground breaking.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an orangey-amber with a ring of foam and a most pungent aroma - definitely bazooka-joe bubblegum. Body is sweet, full of gentle spice and a definite pumpkin aftertaste. Probably the most drinkable pumpkin ale I’ve ever tasted - drank most of it before even getting around to rating. Mild carbonation, thin but ok body. A very nice beer, and again, dangerously drinkable.

[1071-20080201] 650mL (c/o GregClow, w/ him, blankboy, jerc, mds). Sweet pumpkin peppery allspice aroma. Clear, amber orange body with a medium-lasting creamy off-white head. Gingery pumpkin pie crust flavour has a light floral background. Medium body is subtle. Mellow and good.

Bottle (22oz) shared with jerc, mabel, GregClow & mds -- courtesy of GregClow. Pours a slightly hazy orange-amber with an average size fizzy white head. Nice aroma of pumpkin, spices (nutmeg, ginger & cinnamon), caramel malt. Flavour is a more subtle version of the aroma -- good but I wish it had more of everything. Average bodied. Quite nice, I enjoyed it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Copper-orange body with a white creamy head. The aroma is really spicy and has notes of butterscotch, pumpkin, ginger, and nutmeg. The flavour is quite nice too - pumpkin notes are prominent though it’s nicely balanced with some sweet malts. Good stuff.
