Cloudy amber pour, off white head. Aroma of sweet pumpkin puree and spices. Flavour is well rounded pumpkin and spices and balanced alcohol. Surprising. But the pumpkin style isn’t my favourite.

Appearance hold an amber orange color supporting a thin moderate head leaving fair lace. Smell has that nice aroma of pumpkin and accompanying spice, Taste does not disappoint, having that night owl flavor, but more expressive. Mouthfeel is medium with with good carbonation. Overall a good pumpkin and spice flavor with a hint of alcohol.

22oz bomber: This one poured a cloudy, darker golden color. There was a small off white head which didn’t leave much lacing. The nose is good. Pumpkin plus some pumpkin pie spices. The spices are not overdone. The taste is good. It is a bit sweet, but thankfully not sickly sweet as some others of these are. Good body, pumpkin as well as pumpkin pie spices. Not bad.

Bomber - pours a nice pale orange with a thin, short lived head. The aroma is pumpkin pie - more spice than gourd. A mouthful is thin and delicious....pumpkin pie spices, pumpkin, malt, pale ale and a hint of background yeast/wheat flavor. The finish is lingering, delicious and full of light spice. Yum

Picked up a single 22-oz bomber at City Vineyard in Billings, Montana. Pours an orange amber colored brew with a fast dissipating off-white head that leaves behind some potty lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, some pumpkin spice and orange zest. Taste is medium bodied, soft carbonation with flavors of caramel malt, pumpkin, some cinnamon, nutmeg and tropical orange zest. Finish is semi-sweet with a medium pumpkin and spice aftertaste. This is the first pumpkin ale with some orange zest flavors that worked well.

Bomber drank Halloween night 2014. Nice relaxed night with the boys, candy was acquired. I’d saved this aside. Pours a clear orange color with a small white head. A big spicy nose, some vegetable pumpkin aromas. This is a super spicy beer with huge cinnamon, nutmeg. A bit of sweet malty base. Certainly this is a solid brew. Pretty decadent.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
My first rated pumpkin beer while in Seattle even though it’s the 26th and I’ve been drinking them all month. This one is pumpkin colored with an aroma of pumpkin pie like sweetness. Initial palate Is has pronounced carbonation. Cinnamon and pumpkin flavor right up front. Middle leads into slight alcohol flavor, pumpkin pie sugary sweetness with a medium full body that lasts throughout. Finish is complimentary with a slight dry lingering bitterness that offsets the sweet spiced flavors. This pumpkin brew is by far the best I’ve had yet this season. The 8.1 alc is sneakily masked as well.

Bottle. Copper with a little off white head. This alternated between being a pleasant standard pumpkin pie type offering and being bizarrely over spiced. Not entirely sure what I was tasting but some off-putting spice in great quantities would make random appearances. Not bad otherwise but I wish I knew what that was and if it was intentional or not.

On draft at Isaacs. Nice notes of pumpkin. The taste was real and not synthetic. A good spicey finish with a hint of vanilla and vegetable. Not bad at all.
