3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Rusted orange and amber colored in appearance with beige foam. Aroma is a blend of pumpkin puree, nutmeg and allspice with a fair amount of caramel malt around the edges. The taste is roasted pumpkin, caramel and toasted malts upfront followed by notes of cinnamon, ginger, brown sugar and hops bitterness. The body is moderately creamy with medium carbonation and a spiced, malty finish. Overall, the malt and hops are a little more prominent than usual for the style but itís still a respectable pumpkin brew.

Pie spice aroma but the spices really back off on the tongue, which is kind of nice for a (pumpkin beer) change. Some bitterness in the finish is a bit distracting.

Bomber 7.5% from Capital Market. Just called Pumpkin Ale. Deep hazy amber in color. Mildly sweet nose with a sort of subdued spice character. Nutmeg and cinnamon dominate. Smooth pumpkin flavor with a nice spiced quality. Nice smooth body with a lightly hoppy finish. Tasty pumpkin brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Laurelwood SE. First pumpkin beer of the fall.
A: Red to the point of ruby, thin white head.
N: Pumpkin, all-spice, clove, cinnamon, graham cracker, earth, biscuit, hint of pine, more of the hop leaves.
T: Sweet and spicy. Fairly bitter, too.
M: Medium light body, crisp carbonation, and no alcohol.
O: A decent pumpkin beer that, however, has too many hops. They threaten to overpower the squash - but I like that this is a pumpkin beer which aims to be pumpkin and beer and not faux pumpkin pie.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Pale copper color with a nominal sandy head. Somewhat of a pumpkin scent lightly spiced. The spice is much heavier in the taste, a little hot for my liking. Maybe its just too much nutmeg, but it was over-spiced for my palate.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a soft hazed over orange to brown color with a decent transparency about it. A one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about thirty seconds leaving some light lacing sliding into the beer.
The smell had a soft sweet pumpkin that warmed into a light bready pie/crust like character.
The taste was basically the same with a nice sticky sweet vanilla to caramel to pumpkin aftertaste. There was a quick sweet finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a great sessionable quality about it. The carbonation was good for the style and for me.
Overall, I say this was a really nice pumpkin ale that I would bang again.

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.
