2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle:   Orange hued straw, slight haze, moderate white head, decent lacing.   Oh boy, I can already tell too much Ginger was used.   Oh yah, pretty much nothing but Ginger in this one.   Slight grassiness on the backside, but gotta wade through a lot of Ginger before you get there.   Pumpkin, what pumpkin?   As it warms I get more and more of a Ginger Pledge like aroma, or maybe even one of those fancy urinal cakes.   This one does not work for me.   If you like Ginger, or maybe even Wasabi, you will probably like this one.   Ugh...

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
22oz bomber from a 4pack bomber sampler of "Pumpkin" beers. Okay Iím not killing myself with this review. Poured an okay looking cloudy sraw gold with a smaller white foamy head. Aroma is basically all ginger with some grains and toast. Medium to fuller bodied with average carbonation and a dry finish. Flavor is like the aroma and just loaed with ginger. This seems more like a beer that Hitachino Nest should have brewed and there is nothing but ginger spices going on.

Hazy light yellow with a hoppy ginger aroma. Light and clean with a lot of saaz pepper and ginger. Interesting style for a pumpkin beer.

Location: 22 oz bottle from State Line, 11/11/12
Aroma: It is super heavy on the ginger, with some underlying notes of other spice and citrus

Flavor: The taste is a little sweet, lots of ginger, a little bit of spice, and a nice crisp hoppy finish

Quite interesting beer. Thereís a heck of a lot of giniger in this one, and I didnít really taste much pumpkin at all. Somehow, it works quite well.

Bomber and draft at Caponeís. Pours hazy canary with 1-finger white clingy head. Nose is ginger, coriander, orange zest, Saaz hops. Tastes very spice, gingery, with coriander, orange zest, Saaz hops, and pale malt. I didnít get much pumpkin in this, but overall itís not bad, although a bit too spicy.
