Bottle: Dark brownish orange color with a modest beige head. Not much intensity to the aroma, but it smells great. Light pumpkin pie, sweet, and nutmeg. Just smells so fresh. Tastes spicey with lighter pumpkin notes. The cloves stand out a bit. Finishes a little spicey. Nice.

Bomber Halloween 2009. Pours a hazy deep brownish amber with a medium bubbly off white head. Aroma of smooth pumpkin pie spices...clove, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla, pie crust and toasted almonds. Flavor of the same nice pumpkin pie spices as mentioned in the aroma. Some toasted and caramel malt, pie crust...well done pumpkin ale.

22 oz bottle. King of the Pumpkin Beers? I think so. After Blue Moonís, Jackís (Michelob), and Dogfish Head, this oneís the best. It has all the best attributes of pumpkin beer (which Iíve already mentioned in the previous reviews), but itís better; more like tasting an actual pumpkin pie than a beer with pumpkin pie flavoring, more robust, more flavorful. Itís GREAT............................................. charlie brown (lame joke).

Good not great, not enough pumpkin or pumpkin spices. Main flavor was licorice , not a fan. In any case a unique beer and good holiday beer, but not so much for a true pumpkin beer.

marcus (8903) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 28, 2009
This reddish amber ale poured with a large fluffy beige head and a pumpkin pie aroma. There is a somewhat harsh vegetable flavor heavily laced with various spices atop a pretty good caramel malt base. A nice theme beer for Halloween and Thanksgiving, but not especially tasty.

Iím not the biggest pumpkin beer fan, but this one is pretty damn good. It has quite a bit of pumpkin and spice, but the hop bitterness somehow balances things out. Toasty malts allow the aromas and spices to take the stage. Nice and wafty aromas of pumpkin pie, allspice, cinnamon and nutmeg. Ginger is well placed, in the background. Definitely one of the better pumpkin ales Iíve had.

On tap at the beer store. Light brown with a fizzy head. Earthy pumpkin and spice aroma and taste with some cloves and cinnamon in the finish.
