COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The secret is in the 2.5 pounds of spice per barrel for this fall brew. We add the pumpkin during the mash at precisely the right time to create just the perfect balance of malt, hops, pumpkin and spice.

22oz bomber. Pours a hazy dark orange color with a thin creamy head.Nose of allspice, nutmeg, malt. Thick oily mouthfeel - you can just about chew it. Wonderful flavor - you can taste the pumpkin but it is not overwhelming, with just the right amount of hops to balance out all of the sweetness. At 8%ABV you can’t drink many of these, our you’ll walk the plank! Arrgghh!!

Nimrod979 (206) - Hagerstown, Maryland, USA - OCT 29, 2011
Bottle. Pours a nice translucent orange with an average bubbly white head. Spicy pumpkin aromas. Sweet nutmeg aromas. Big malty flavors at first. Spicy cinnamon, clove and pumpkin flavors. And a bit of nutty sweetness before washing down with a slight bit of bitter hoppiness to it. Also a slight tinge of alcohol gives it a little heat to add to the spice. Medium bodied. with a creamy and soft texture. A little watery diminishes the finish but a pretty solid pumpkin ale. A little unique with a more hoppy finish than you would really expect in a pumpkin beer.

blindeyedbetty (189) - Utah, USA - NOV 6, 2009
22 oz. bottle pours cloudy amber with tight white head that leaves minimal runny lacing as it fades. Aroma is heavy with spice, not much pumpkin. Allspice, and cinnamon are prevalent. Moderately thin to medium body with a malty front, nutmeg and cinnamon middle and clove finish with an overall mild pumpkin-squash palate. The alcohol is not well hidden in the aftertaste. This is a heartier fall/pumpkin ale, but very little pumpkin comes through for me. As with many of the fall seasonals, this beer tends to display spicier notes than pumpkin, lending itself to better be called (IMO) a fall, or spice ale, rather than pumpkin. That said, this is a nice accompaniment to a sun-dried tomato marinated turkey breast stuffed with spinach, sugared walnuts and goat cheese.

bhiner41 (180) - La Grange, Illinois, USA - JUN 3, 2011
Aroma of pumpkin pie mixed with wet bread, almost a cinnamon mildew. After the glowing description of smell the beer is surprisingly good. Subtle hints of spice and a nice balance of malt. No real notes of hops in the brew. Color is a hazy orange. Not the best pumpkin on the market but drinkable. Slight alcohol burn on the finish.

cloudy orange pour, drank from pint glass, mix of flavor more potent than aroma, Tastes like a mutiny

Bomber bought from belmont. Poured a nice orange color with little head. Nice aroma of spice and herbs. Really good beer especially for fall. Haven’t tried the Greater yet.
