3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from Calvert Wine & Spirits in Cockeysville, MD. Pours a slightly hazy glowing orange with a thin fizzy white head. Aroma is a powerful blast of Fall spices, mostly allspice and nutmeg with a touch of pumpkin and cinnamon stick. Flavors follow suit, but the spice mixture dominates nearly all traces of pumpkin and a funky twist at the end leaves you with a slightly down note as a memory.

22oz. pours a hazey copper with thin off white head. aroma has some malt and a touch of pumpkin pie spices. mouthful has a tone of spice put it is hard to find the pumpkin. seems a bit over spiced as the spices linger on a long finish. I love the pumpkin ales... but i like more pumpkin in the mix.

Bottle from Crown#6. Pours cloudy/crystal dark orange with rising bubbles and minimal white head. Nose is slight pumpkin spice and some spicy hops. Taste is relatively smooth, slightly carbonated, slight pumpkin flavor and a decent amount of hops. A little odd overall, not my favorite pumpkin brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a hazy orange amber with a 1 inch creamy light beige head that eventually dropped to just a film and left very little lacing. For a pumpkin ale the aroma that hit me right away was egg nog. Lots of nutmeg and a mix of other spices. The texture of the beer was pretty creamy with a good amount of alcohol right away. The alcohol left a nice warmth down the throat. The flavor had nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice and a good amount of malt sweetness to balance a bit of a hops bite through the middle that faded to a lingering alcohol warmth on the finish. This was pretty good, but I would just get The Greater Pumpkin from now on after trying both.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a murky orange color with a light off-white head. Radiating smell of pumpkin. Hops balance out the sweet pumpkin flavor. A little heavy on the spices. Alcohol definitely warms the throat. Has a slight bitter finish with all the kick of the fall spices.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours from a 22oz. bomber bottle a medium amber/orange color with a small head that quickly dissolved into a light lacing. The aroma is malty and slightly sweet, with hints of pumpkin pie spices and maybe just a hint of Alcohol. 1st sip brings a taste of pumpkin, malt, and spices. There is a strong bitterness on the finish from a combination of hops, alcohol & spice. The mouth feel is smooth and Medium Body. I notice some Pumpkin Ales choose to have the Pumpkin Taste as the Main Flavor, While others have it as the "Spice". I prefer the spice, and this one is somewhere in the middle. A Decent one, but not in the top 5.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
aroma: ahh, there is a strong cinnamon aroma
appearance: bright orange amber with a thin head
taste: the spice element (nutmeg and cinnamon) is present in the taste and you can feel in on the tongue. this is a well-balanced brew.
palate: the brew is medium bodied and flows well. the aftertaste is spiced as well
overall: this is a great pumpkin beer. I consider it one of the best I have had to date. (by the way, this is awesome with a slice of pumpkin bread!)
