3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a nice Med copper,into my St bernardus chalice
Smell was a little spicy,but i get very little if any pumpkin,
Taste is of clove and nutmeg,at the start,finishes very sweet
with a nice spicy aftertaste of honey ginger and all spice
The secret is in the 2.5 pounds of spice they use per barrel
I think its a nice balance of malt, hops, and spice but as with most pumpkin beers i just dont get the amount of pumpkin i think should be there! overall a nice fall beer!

On tap. One of the better pumpkin beers Iíve tried. Pumpkin, brown sugar and spice with a subtle, unobtrusive and pleasant hit of hops. Maybe a bit a the syrupy sweet side for me.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. 7/28/13. Pours a clear light-orange with a thin white head. Aroma is pumpkin, banana, spicy, yeast, vanilla, bubblegum, cloves. Taste is pumpkin, bread, alcohol, roast malt, touch of smoke, floral; finish is lingering fruit rind bitterness and a hint of spruce. Light lacing. Medium carbonation. Oily mouth feel. More aggressive bitterness than expected. Not bad. Looking forward to trying The Greater Pumpkin.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber - pours slightly hazy orange with ivory head and decent lacing. Nose is pumpkin spice and maybe ginger. Flavor adds bread and a complex spice finish with a light boozy kick. White pepper aftertaste. Spiciness makes it hard to detect exact taste, but there is obvious sweetness. Grassy hops show up as the beer warms. Fairly tasty though dominated by the pumpkin spice.

Got this bomber in October and is sort of hid in my fridge until now. Poured into snifter glass a clear orange-amber color with off-white head. Aroma of light pumpkin spices (nutmeg, etc) and caramel malt. Taste is malt sweetness, pumpkin spices (mainly nutmeg), some hop bitterness and the lightest touch of actual pumpkin. Medium body, some warming in the finish. Honestly if this was served blind I would think this is a spiced ale. Still good just not expected.
