This spiced ale pours a medium orange gold color from a 22 oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is malt, nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, clove and pumpkin. A medium bodied spiced ale. Malts are caramel and fruity, with a very definite pumpkin flavor. Hops are kind of mild and earthy. Nice spicing. The gingerbread and pumpkin pie flavors are well balanced and just about in the right proportions. Nice beer. Pumpkin pie in a bottle, well sort of.. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Bomber, courtesy the generosity of BitBucket, Jr. Pours a deep ruddy brown with a moussy tan head thatís really just in the kitchen to grab a beer and then itís leaving. Lace and film left behind after itís gone. Nice big pumpkin nose. Borderline fizzy carb, though it doesnít show in the glass. Probably the biggest problem with this beer is that fizz-they didnít really make any outright mistakes other than that. Thick coriander/nutmeg/pumpkin flavors dancing all around the palate; the attack is soft and almost chewy (not unlike a fine pie). Very little finish, if any. Tasty and refreshing and seasonally appropriate. For a style that I just never think about, this is a fine beer, maybe a standard bearer. That would make it the Anchor OSA of pumpkin beers, and I wonít go that far, but Iíll never hesitate to drink this beer.

Bomber. Pours a clear bright copper with a thin white head. Has the requisite "pumpkin pie" aroma, but not so pronounced as the other pumpkin beers Iíve tried. Body is medium with light carbonation. Sweet taste full of pumpkin spices, but the flavor is a bit muddy. OMG, Iím starting to have opinions about good and bad pumpkin beers. I need to get back to Stouts and IPAs.

Great pumpkin beer. Pours brown with a small tan head. Pumpkin aroma with mild spices. The beer has a perfect mix of pumpkin flavor and spices. The best pumpkin beer I have had.

On tap at Elysian, Seattle. Copper, lasting beige head. Spice powder aroma, cinnamon and nutmeg. My first pumpkin ale. Oh god this is horrible. Not badly made, but just not my bag.

GABF 2006. I was initially surprised at how many pumpkin beers they had at GABF. I was, for some reason, jonesing for pumpkin beers. This was my first of the lot. Muddy orange. Nose is pumpkin pie mix, spice, ginger, and cinnamon. Taste is gingerbread cookies mixed with home made pumpkin pie. Not overdone on the spice. Rather drinkable. Body is medium with moderate carbonation. Ends with more pumpkin pie flavors, light cookie, and spices. Nice stuff!
