22 oz bomber from Spirits Crossroads and my 1st pumpkin beer of the season for 2012. Poured a rusty orange body under an average to larger sized slightly foamy beige head. Aroma has a chocolate background with notes of pumpkin spices, toast and some pumpkin husk. Body is full and dry with lots of mid-flavor spices and finishes full and spicey. Flavor of toast, chocolate, pumpkin pie spice, dry pumpkin rind and grain. It’s okay and the ABV is well hidden but I’d rather have the king and yes I mean Pumking.

22oz bottle in a plastic cup. Pours brown with a cream-colored head. Aroma of pumpkin, caramel and bread-like malts, and some floral hops. Flavor the same, with some alcohol on the finish. Average texture. A good pumpkin beer.

Location: 22 oz bottle from Sparrow-Downtown, 9/10/12

Aroma: It has a good amount of spice (cinnamon, clove, etc), pumpkin, and some sweet malts
Appearance: This one pours a dark orange color with a beige head and some light lacing
Flavor: The taste is medium sweet, not as sweet as the nose, with a medium-plus spice presence
Palate: The body is medium, it has a lively carbonation, and a lasting, lightly dry finish
Overall Impression: This one was a solid Pumpkin beer, but not a stand-out in this style. Still though, it is something that I enjoyed drinking, so I give them a

Bottle. Pours hazy, dark amber with creamy, off-white head. Aroma is pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, cereal malts, floral notes, figs, and dates. Flavor starts sweet and malty but surprisingly has some strong hop bitterness on the back end; dry finish with some light spices. Medium body and carbonation.
