3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber from Capones. Pale yellow with a white head that fades fairly quickly. Ginger (both ground and fresh rind), light pumpkin, very little spice (nice change). Mild body with huge ginger, moderate carbonation, light, ginger is the overwhelming flavour, slightly harsh ginger bite on the finish a bit of earthy vegetable on the finish too. If you like ginger you may like this - otherwise avoid.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rated two nights ago as part of our annual pumpkin beer night. Bomber. Pours cloudy yellow-orange with a collapsing white head. My first impression after smelling this thing was that I was smelling a Corona and lime. Then I came to my senses and realized it was the ginger. Taste is very ginger-forward (the most ginger Iíve ever had in a beer I think). Starts out sweet and spicy from the ginger before turning extremely bitter mid-palate. Mouthfeel is creamy. Very interesting and Iím glad I tried it, but itís a try it once and never have again type of beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
22oz bottle courtesy of a friend in Seattle. Slightly cloudy melon orange. Thin head of big and tiny white bubbles that mix in a creamy layer. Bright ginger aroma with hints of raw pumpkin. Flavors of strong ginger spiciness that has the same effect as crisp hops (which are also present) - cleaning the palate. Light sweetness in the finish. Really interesting and tasty. This beer wows me because it is very different and also of very high quality. Iím also excited any time I find a beer with this much flavor and sub 5% alcohol. Very impressive product.

Real hazy. Harsh, dry, fibrous and woody nose. Some sweet, bright tingles, super hot and fresh ginger flavour. This COULD be the best HOTDog ever. Medicinal. Oops. I forgot that this was a pumpkin beer. Ginger pilsner maybe...

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle- Pours light hazy golden with a small ring of foam. The aroma is ginger, not getting much pumpkin, maybe a little. The taste is ginger again, there is a sweetness to it, kind of vegetal, but not all that pumpkin, imparts a dryness after the swallow. Overall have had better, was hoping for more pumpkin and less ginger, but I did still like it.

Bottle. This beer was terrible. Slightly cloudy, dark gold color. No head, no lace. Smells like a ginger scented candle. Taste....awful.

Tap at Blind Tiger. A solid pilsner with a strong emphasis on the pumpkin. Enough said.

I like ginger. But this beer is unbalanced, far too heavily weighted in ginger. There's some pumpkin trying to come through, but it keeps getting squashed by the ginger. C+
