Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours ruddy copper with a foamy off-white head. Aroma of mild roast malt and a little bit of spice. Med minus body. Flavor is typical pie spice. And I think they put more than a little spice in this. Iím never sure if Iím tasting squash. Iím not all that fond of squash. But pie spice is pretty good. Cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice (what sort of misnomer is that?) is pretty good. Said that already.

Bomber poured a clear orange amber with a small lingering amber head. Aromas of caramel, ginger, clove, cinnamon and light pumpkin. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of caramel, clove, cinnamon, light allspice and light pumpkin with a crisp dry lingering spiced finish.

5000 (6031) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 2, 2011
Bottle:   Hefty amber, rather dark, sediment abounds at the end of this bottle, moderate tannish head, spotty lacing.   Very muted spiced nose.   Its as if there is Cinnamon, Nutmeg, and associated spices, but they are all muted/watered down.   Very soft spices on the tongue.   Decent malt base, smooth, clean, but not as spiced as most.   I do get more of an actual squash/pumpkin/gourd sort of flavor tho.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   I gave a couple samples to some friends (who love Pumpkin Beer), and neither figured this as a Pumpkin Ale in a blind taste test.   While some seem overly artificial in their spices, this one seems more genuine.   However, because it lacks the usual spices, it becomes rather dull.   Damnit, its like the spices want to come out to play... but canít.

Draft at ncbc. Pours a murky dark amber with virtually no head. Mild caramel and pie nose. Creamy medium body with light carb. Caramel and a little bit of pie spice on the mid palate. Mild finish. Needs a lot more presence and complexity.

Clear copper color/ light tan head. Boiled pumpkin aromas with cheap weed, caramel. smooth medium body. Roasty nutty pumpkin seed flavors with sweet caramel, fall spices- good pumpkin beer.

mcberko (5372) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 9, 2012
22 oz. bottle, pours a clear golden orange with a small beige head. Aroma of pumpkin seeds, slight spices and stale malts. Flavour is quite watery, with light spices and not much body at all, just a bit of spice. Very watery and bland. Nothing offensive, just boring.

BrewDad (4632) - Olympia, USA - OCT 25, 2011
Orange amber in color, thin head and slight haze. Light spice, nutmeg and cinnamon aroma. Light slick flavor from the pumpkin added. This was a easy tasting pumpkin brew. Very nice and tasty.

jgb9348 (4493) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 18, 2013
Deep dark copper coloured body with a nice amber glow and a rich, one centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of squash, pumpkin, allspice, cloves, canella and a lot of malty earthiness, with some light caramel sweetness. Medium to Full-bodied; Very rich squash and pumpkin flavours of malt noticeable with a big earthiness, some mild caramel and subdued sweetness and a touch of spices on the end with nutmeg and allspice the strongest. Overall, a nice and well flavoured pumpkin beer with the right amount of spices, a ton of malt, a good level of sweetness and of all things, a very nice rich body - made for a good sipping beverage. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Made in Oregon in Portland (PDX Airport Terminal D), Oregon on 28-September-2013 for US$5.95 sampled at home in Washington on 18-October-2013.

Bottle: The aroma consists of clove, cinnamon, and a touch of caramel. While the aroma is pleasant and consists of some pumpkin pie spices, I canít say it reminds me of pumpkin pie. Iím not going to knock it for that..."Iím just sayin." It pours a bright transparent amber with a two finger creamy beige head with pretty good retention. The flavor starts with some muted caramel. The finish has a some clove, ginger, light cinnamon, and a touch of fruit. Medium bodied with a soft mouthfeel. Overall, if I was given this blind, I would be to say it was some sort of spiced beer. While I wouldnít pinpoint it as a Pumpkin Ale, I wouldnít argue once I was told it was.

UPDATED: SEP 17, 2011 Bottle enjoyed @ The BeerMongers... Poured amber, burnt orange with a beige head. Nose had light spice and some roast. The flavor contained roasted pumpkin squash. More squash forward than spice forward. Malt sugars and a balanced finish.
