På fat. Bärnstensfärgad med lätt smutsvitt skum. Till skillnad från amerikanare är pumpa-öl (eller något alls med pumpa faktiskt) inget jag till vardags dricker. Så om det luktar pumpa? Säkert, men jag behöver slänga ner min näsa i fler pumpor innan jag ger mig på ett omdöme. Däremot är det intensiva julkryddor som dominerar doftbilden. Dessa återkommer i smaken, men även karamell och vanilj hittas. Värmande alkohol.

Puts dark amber and cloudy. The pumpkin and spice are their bit not overpowering. Nicely done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

beerbill (3536) - Laurel, New York, USA - NOV 29, 2013
22 oz. bottle. Label reads "Brush and Barrel Series." Pours a lightly hazed golden orange with a moderate off-white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Pleasant aroma of caramel, malt, pumpkin, with the requisite pumpkin pie spices. The flavor is more spice than pumpkin but not totally out of balance. Some caramel and malt present as well. Mild bitterness at the finish. Alcohol is well hidden. Medium bodied.

Typical pumpkin beer everything, smell, taste, aroma. The thing that brings it down, is the after taste. Bitter for no reason. Why?

Cloudy reddish caramel pour with no head. Aroma of pumpkin spices and bread. Very spicy flavor with cinnamon, ginger, and clove dominant. Some bread and slight pumpkin at the end. Very big beer. Great lacing.

Pours a one finger light tan head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Cloudy amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Strong pumpkin pie nose and flavor is sweet pumpkin pie spices, hints of hops at finish. Higher ABV is hidden. $6.99 for a 22oz bottle from Market Basket Concord, NH.

GMCC2181 (1515) - Newark, Delaware, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Bottle via SL.. Dark red in color.... not much head. Nose of some spices...Malty, bready. Taste is more of a winter warmer of harvest ale. Light spices, malty, bready, good but where is the pumpkin? Body is medium, low carbonation. Easy to drink. Overall... not really a pumpkin but a nice brew...

kramer (5094) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 25, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear orangish amber body with a one finger tight bubbled beige head that had pretty nice retention. The nose is pretty solid, lots of sweet caramel maltiness with a lighter spice accent. Smells like ginger mostly, with some lighter cinnamon and nutmeg. Minimal squash notes. The flavor is way too spicy for my tastes though. The ginger and nutmeg are just a little too overboard and dominate over the pumpkin and sweet caramel malt. Spicy biting finish from the ginger and clove. Some very minimal alcohol heat on the finish, but pretty tame for 8% ABV. Medium bodied with fizzy frothy carbonation. I was hoping for better from this one. Their other brewmaster series beers have been very good.
