Poured a dark amber color with a thick soapy head, from a 22oz bottle. Small flakes of malt poured into the glass which were suspended by the carbonation. Like another review says, I wouldn’t place this is a pumpkin ale, but rather some type of seasonal spicy ale. Even though I was hoping for a pumpkin flavor, I am not disappointed. This is a rather tasty brew. I did a side by side comparison to identify the aroma, the result: brown sugar. It feels excellent in the mouth...ummm....I mean the palate is very good. The aroma leads to a spicy, but not too spicy, just the right amount of spice taste. Ausgezeichnet Laurelwood.

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.

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.

On tap at the Fremont Oktoberfest, Seattle, WA. Pours a medium clear brown with amber highlights....little head. Aroma is of nutmeg, cloves, and a touch of anise. Mouthfeel is medium-dry with adequate carbonation to bring out the spices yet dry out the finish to make a very drinkable pumpkin beer. Finishing mouthfeel has a texture similar to wet pumpkin seeds with a creamy note. Spices are used with restraint and it really pays off.

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.

Pours a dark orange with a slight red tint. With a thick creamy head with good lacing. Smells of cinnamon, pumpkin, nutmeg and ginger. Tastes of all the same things but the roasted pumpkin flavor shines through and is slightly hoppy. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy with medium carbonation and a semi dry finish. Overall this as a pumpkin ale that you can actually taste the pumpkin more than the spices which is kind of nice for a change.

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.

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.
