3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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. I’m never sure if I’m tasting squash. I’m 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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

"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."

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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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 can’t.

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 can’t say it reminds me of pumpkin pie. I’m not going to knock it for that..."I’m 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 wouldn’t pinpoint it as a Pumpkin Ale, I wouldn’t argue once I was told it was.
