22 oz. bottle- Pours clear amber with a thin head, aroma is pumpkin spice. The flavor is similar to the aroma, pumpkin pie with spices, very mellow, tasty stuff. Palate is creamy, medium carbonation, full body, best pumpkin beer so far, but next is the pumking.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - NOV 7, 2010
Bomber pours hazy dark orange with a foamy head. Aroma of graham cracker, spice, pumpkin, brown sugar, good moist pumpkin bread, not the dry shit. Taste is milder than Pumking but has similarities, lots of crackery malt and sweetness. Definitely not as bitter as this years Pumking. Very easy to drink, not overly sweet or spiced. Medium body, low carbonation, silky.

Zeswaft (1505) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - OCT 31, 2010
Orange color and no head. Not much aroma. Candied sugar and a little allspice. Spice and pumpkin. Flavors blend well. Good amount of sweetness for balance. A little alcohol on the finish. A respectable challenger to Pumking.

Bomber into Sam Adams lager glass. Beer #2 in our Halloween pumpkin beer tasting. Pours orange (slightly hazy), with a small head that disappears too quick. Leaves a collar of foam full of big bubbles. Aroma is pumpkin pie--no surprise--but not as in-your-face as the Southern Tier I drank before this. Along with the hallmark pumpkin pie spices, I can smell some caramel. Taste is sweet and meaty with little bitterness. Carbonation is medium and so is the body; a little tang in the finish. Not as good as the Southern Tier Pumpking.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 11, 2010
Dark orange, thick white head. Mild pumpkin and pie spice aroma. Moderately rich body with strong pumpkin, spice bread, roasty nutty flavor and clovey pie spice. Very loaded with pumpkin flavor.

mcberko (10577) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 3, 2010
On tap at TCBF, pours hazy orange. A potent strictly pumpkin aroma reveals itself in a huge pumpkin blast flavour - definitely one of the best in this style that I’ve tried.

bottle. Pours a clear orange with white bubbles instead of head. Nose is of pumpkin, nutmeg and cinnamon. Taste is like pumpkin pie, oh my! Tasty. Pretty good for a pumpkin/veggie brew. Mouthfeel is medium with slight alcohol.

bleeng (1595) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - FEB 9, 2010
Bottle thanks to maltomeal shared at the January RB tasting. Super pumpkin nose. Very gold color. Taste is very high in alcohol with overriding pumpkin tastes (which is not my favorite taste). OK in small quantities.
