3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bomber brought back from Oregon. Strong spice aroma with nutmeg and allspice being front and center, with tiny amounts of cinnamon and pumpkin working their way through. Pours orangish-amber with about one finger of off white head and no lacing. Starts off ok with a lot of nutmeg with some cinnamon and pumpkin subtle ness. The finish is a strong blast of spice with the allspice taking front and center that over powers all the good things the beer had going for it. Pretty mediocre, but would give it another go just in case this one is simply off.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap, poured into a sampler. The aroma is pumpkin spice ... nothing too shocking given the style and name. Oily-clear, the caramel orange beer is topped with a thick and dense white ring. A small and thin island is retained with some wisps and a light lace is left on the glass. The taste is a medium sweet. The beer is thin with a full, spicy body and fizzy carbonation. Pumpkin spice finishes the drink with warm caramel notes. It’s fairly clean for the style, only leaving a light pumpkin spice aftertaste with nothing cloying.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear dark amber color with a moderate off-white head on there. Nice amount of pumpkin coming through, with a smaller amount of spice, the way I like pumpkin beers. Taste is a bit savory, with pumpkin and a bit of roasting coming through, as well as the spices (a bit more than the nose).

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Solid pumpkin; no complaints. More "meaty" than the usual varieties. Perhaps a bit less spice than expected. There’s nothing that calls this one out negatively or positively. Just solid.

"A nice, fairly rich and malty amber base. Aroma is pleasant of light spices and sweet smelling vegetable/pumpkin. Smooth body and flavor. Pie like in a good way with some depth. Well done."

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Colour...orange-amber with a thick white head. Nose...cinnamon predominates and there’s hints of allspice and nutmeg. Palate...rather thin on the mouth with light CO2.There’s mostly pie spice here but it doesn’t overwhelm. There’s a generalised squash flavour but nothing discernible as pumpkin.
