Deep golden pour. The nose is a little bit spicy. A touch of cardamom and a little bit of almost creamy aroma. Lightly honeyish with a nice soft sweetness. A great balance of soft sweet malt and nice spiciness. Lightly cinnamon and nutmeg. Lingering sweet and spicy finish. Has a nice creamy palate.

Poured a nice translucent orange with a small white head and minimal lacing. Aroma had plenty of pumpkin spices. Flavor had plenty of cinnimon spices upfront just like a pumpkin pie. Good stuff.

Heavy dose of cinnamon fills the aroma of pumpkin spices and this one is very flavorful. Finish has a bit of a waxy flavor which I’m not sure is from the alcohol or a generous dose of pumpkin seeds and malts.

Bottle that I brought to Andy’s place. Pours a clear orange with a thin white head. Big pumpkin pie, vanilla and pie crust, very soft cinnamon. Lots of pumpkin - this actually tastes like pumpkin pie filling. Not just spices like most pumpkin beers taste like, but pumpkin flesh and spices. Lightly spicy bitterness on the end. Best pumpkin beer I’ve had in ages, possibly ever.

Bomber from BotW. Clear amber our with really nice soft head. Nice creamy body as well. As with all pumpkin ales, this tastes more of the associated spices than pumpkin itself. But it’s quite good. Not too sweet; less booze than ST Pumpking, but I’d guess this is 6% or more. One of the few good ones of the style. Nice job, Horseheads.

(bottle - 22 oz) Deep amber pour with a thin white head. Sweet aroma of spices and pumpkin pie. Flavor begins with some light spice and a nice pumpkin flavor. Almost pumpkin bread rather than pumpkin pie. Lots of good bread malts blend well with the pumpkin and spices. Finishes dry and sweet with a light aftertaste of pumpkin. I like it.

Amber pour with a slight offwhite head. Spicey pumpkin aroma, with some cinnamon and nutmeg as well. The pumpkin pie school of pumpkin ales, less vegatable, more spice. Decent.

En fût. Verre de dégustation directement à la brasserie. Arôme: Odeur de canelle. Apparence: La couleur est dorée. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût d’épices avec une pointe de citrouille. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement minérale. Faible effervescence en bouche. Légère présence d’épices à citrouille en arrière goût. (Rating #2024)
