3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2012 16.9 oz bottle. Pours mahogany with a collapsing beige head. Aroma is cookie-ish, caramelly, roasty. Taste starts out sweet (sweet like many European stouts/porters, but bordering on cloying) before turning bitter and roasty. I’m not getting the roasted pumpkin seeds, although it is a roasty beer. This is alright, but I wouldn’t want more than one. Just a sidenote here: I added a little bit of this beer to a cup of black coffee, thinking the roastiness of both would compliment each other, and they did (extremely well, in fact; it’s better in the coffee than by itself!), but what was surprising is that the pumpkin seeds were totally evident when it was mixed with the coffee. I don’t know why or how, but I thought that was kind of cool.

No idea what is going in here. Smells of wood, roasts and pumpkin seeds. Ok, I lied - I do know what’s going on. But it won’t stop this low effort review from happening. Ok taste. Tasty fruit with a mild sweet spice, oddness, and mild umyuxk. I lied - I have no idea what is going on here. Somewhat yuck after taste. Enjoyed that in waves and disliked it just as often. I’ll give it between a .5 & 5.

330ml bottle pours a golden color with a small white head that leaves very little lacing on the glass. Aroma is grains and grass. Taste is a grainy malt sweetness with a grassy hop bitterness. Light bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, a decent brew.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Frischer malziger Antrunk, nicht in die Tiefe gehend, kerniger Unterton. Ab dem Mittelteil etwas nussig und röstmalzig, das Malz geht allerdings auch weiterhin nicht in die Tiefe und wirkt etwas aufgesetzt. Weiter nussig, eine herbe Note lässt sich für den Bruchteil einer Sekunde blicken. Erst im Nachgeschmack bahnt sichd as Röstmalz einen Weg in die Tiefe, das Bier wirkt deutlich vollmundiger.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours dark ruddy copper/amber with a creamy beige head. Aroma is sort of spiced cola. Med minus body. Flavor is vanilla schwarzbier with cola and touches of chocolate and treacle. It’s quite astringent. Finishes just on the sweet side. Odd given the astringency. Babelfish translates Kürbiskernbier as Pumpkin beer. Never would have pulled that out of this beer.

16.9 oz. bottle- Pours clear dark brown to red on the first pour with a thin tan head that reduces to a collar. The aroma is vegetal, spices, European, thin aroma. The taste is European as well, the pumpkin is more just a generic vegetal taste, kind of spicy, Euro minerals. I guess If I think about it it kind of reminds me of pumpkin seeds, not the best pumpkin beer out there, but a decent if not average beer.
