Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - APR 14, 2008
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.

Lagerboy (1955) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 2, 2015
Bomber. Clear orange copper, off-white foam fades fast. Pumpkin pie in a bottle, ’nuff said. Soft carbonation, lighter bodied, low hopped. Better than most. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

WheatKing (1328) - Phnom Penh, CAMBODIA - JAN 20, 2013
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.

mgermani (1002) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 9, 2008
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.

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).
