3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample f/22oz Bomber-Dark orange pour w/a moderate off white head. Strong aroma of pumpkin & cinnamon. Has a little bit of hop flavor to it, but Pumpkin spice & cinnamon/nutmeg dominate the flavor. Spices keep it from being too sweet & give it a nice flavor. Pumpkin beers really aren’t my thing, but this is a very solid brew. If you are a pumpkin fan, this is the one to get. Long pumpkin finish, alcohol is well hidden.

The first thing that is noticed about this beer is the aroma. Quite like pumpkin pie. The flavor is also like the pie, with a heavy dose of cinnamon. Nice fall beer.

Murky pour could be slightly off putting. Nice pumpkin and spice nose. Flavors are up front from start to finish. More pumpkin and % than most. Well done for a seasonal I am usually not that stoked about.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This one poured a darker orange color with an off white head. Aroma was of mainly punkpin spice, clove and nutmeg, but a little weak. Flavor was sticky sweetness with some pumpkin flesh, cinnamon and nutmeg. Not too bad but nothing spectacular.

Tap at Capones. Pours a hazy golden amber with a medium bubbly creamy head that laced. Aroma of a nice mix of pumpkin pie spices, pumpkin, toasted malt and some grains. Flavor had a lot of cinnamon, nutmeg, lots of pie spices, pie crust and nuts.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz bottle. Hazy brown with some thin white froth. Nose is pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg. Medium body with a tang. Taste kind of like the aroma with honey and clove but not too sweet. Nice earthy bitter finish. Residual spices, a touch of hops. Good balance, quite enjoyable. My favorite from Clipper City so far.
