Davros (1806) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 4, 2014
Pours hazy pale copper with a fading head. Nose shows currants, fruit cake, candied fruit, golden syrup and soft pumpkin. Pretty similar flavours, although the pumpkin is more prominent and there’s less sweetness. Still a lot of the christmas pudding-like spices. Finishes a little short, could use a longer lasting malty finish. Nice moderately high carbonation.

Bomber from Capones. Somewhat dark amber that its difficult to shine a light through with a generous creamy tan head that gradually disappears. A nice light enjoyable spice (nutmeg, some cinnamon), some pumpkin puree, slightly sweet and a bit of homemade buttery crust. Moderate+ carbonation and moderate body, somewhat sweet, bubbly, nice spicy and pumpkin finish but a tad artificial left on the palate.

Large format bottle from the 4-pack of Elysian pumpkin beers. Probably the best of the lot.

maekchu (1756) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JAN 13, 2014
Bottle from Yamaichi. Big pumpkin and nutmeg nose. Clear copper/orange color, no head to speak of. Very sweet pumpkin and spice initial / spices really intensify in mid, ginger and nutmeg / finish is slick and retains sweetness along with spices. Medium body. Alright, for what it is.

Very spicy aroma, sweet smelling. Tastes spicy with cinnamon and all spice really prominent. Can taste the pumpkin throughout, fairly subtle but there. Great pumpkin ale, very very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2011 This years batch is 5.8% ABV A: Pours rusty orange with a creamy finger of tannish foam over the top of excellently clear beer. cobweb lace. S: This beer is set apart from many of the pumpkins I’ve had based solely on the addition of ginger. This assures the beer has a baked tone on the nose for me. There’s of course the clove, allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon and semi sweet malts. T: The beer is dominated a little more than would be preferred, and makes it a bit spicy. There is an interesting vanilla profile on the finish. M: Medium bodied with lively carb and a semi dry finish. O: This is a totally different take on the style, and I like it. I think they need to dial back the ginger just a bit, and help bring the body into coordination with the flavors. Serving type: bottle 10-06-2011

ReggieDunlap (2922) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2013
pours a clear orange color with a thin white head. aroma has very pie-like notes...doughy crust, mild spices and pumpkin...smells very nice. flavor follows suit...very authentic pie flavor...just a tad bit too much spice but still damn good. mouthfeel is medium and the finish is dry and a bit over-spiced but not bad.

SpringsLicker (3046) - Tennessee, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Pours slightly cloudy medium amber with an off-white head. Pie spice aroma. The flavor is Pumpkin pie spices. A little bit of sharpness that detracts slightly but overall a pretty decent Pumpkin beer if you like the pie spice ones.

Great tasting seasonal beer. It is brewed with real pumpkin, so one can taste pumpkin along with cinnamon, vanilla, and pumpkin pie spices. It rich, golden amber color and long lasting head make for a very pleasing beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From a 22 oz bottle in September. Pours a light brown-copper color. Small head and slight lace. Aroma of pumpkin pie with extra spices. Moderate carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of sweet malts, slight pumpkin pie, spices. Overall quite tasty and flavorful without too much spice power.
