Location/Date:Bottle on November 16th, 2012.

Appearance: Pours a medium to dark orange.
Aroma: Aroma of pumpkin and nutmeg.
Taste: Pumpkin but not too sweet, faint bitterness.
Palate:Medium light body, quick finish.

Summary: 39 more to go to 1000. Figured I’d get on my way tonight. What is nice about this beer is that it has the pumpkin tastes but is not too sweet or overly spiced, which can be a problem with traditional pumpkin ales.

Transfer from BA review on 10-2-12- Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – The beer pours an orange color with a two finger white head. The head is rather billowy, but fades relatively fast to a persistent cap on the top of the brew. Once faded, the head leaves only a lighter level of lacing. Smell – The aroma is a nice pumpkin pie aroma. There is a good presence of caramel sweetened pumpkin with pumpkin spices. The heaviest of the spices are of cinnamon and nutmeg, but aromas of allspice and clove are there as well. Taste – The taste hits heavily upfront of roasted pumpkin and some flavors of cinnamon and allspice. As the taste advances, a light brown sugar sweetness mixed with clove and ginger come to the tongue. The sweetness then fades as more roasted pumpkin comes to the tongue, and in the end, a dry roasted spiced pumpkin flavor is left to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the chewier side with a carbonation level that is on the slightly above average side. While traditionally I like smoothness with a pumpkin brew, the more chewy nature of this body is actually quite nicely compliments the more average to above average carbonation level. Overall – A more roasty and dry pumpkin brew with a very interesting feel. Give it a go if you have a chance!!

(Draught at brewpub) clear deep copper, fine white bubbles. Nose of huge cinnamon, candied pumpkin, fall spices, very sweet and fragrant. Taste is medium sweet, pumpkin, cinnamon and spices. Dry, well carbonated, and a touch buttery.

Davros (1897) - 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.

pushkinwow (1990) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 2, 2014
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.

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.
