3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
so i am not sure if the brush and barrel series is same as brewmaster but here i go. 22oz bomber enjoyed in a standard pint glass. A darker colored brownish orange with a nice one finger small bubble head. Aroma is a best hits or pumpkin beer with clove and all spice but not ever the top. The taste is a full body malt with light touches of bitter and brown sugar. For me the greatness comes in the full satisfying body that more pumpkin beers should have. Pumpkin beer to be enjoyed on a cold VT evening. 8abv not noticeable. a good all around example.

UPDATED: AUG 13, 2012 Pours golden. The lacing sticks around but does ever so sink. Smells and tastes of rye bread, nutmeg, allspice and bread yeast. Alright.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
22 oz. Bottle. Ok, but not that impressive due to the overwhelming boozy flavor. Excellent scent of banana, spice, clove, pumpkin, nutmeg, and alcohol. Bronze pour with a head quick to ring. Light/med body, silky, slight sticky finish. Big alcohol flavor over banan and pumpkin, nutmeg.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smell is like a pumpkin beer, so is taste. High malt complexion. Creamy and good but it disappears too quickly.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
1 pint 6 fl oz bottle. Pours a surprising clear ruby hue with a tan/orange coloured head. Aroma is spice up front, and a surprising amount of banana. I mean a LOT of banana. As for taste, sweet with heavy notes of Lyle’s Golden Syrup up front, dried fruit, caramel, light cinnamon, light bitterness, and lots of malt notes. If tasting blindly, I might guess something in the bock family. The pumpkin beer notes are awfully light. It is however a good beer, even if it doesn’t resemble something from the pumpkin beer family. Well done.

Bottle pours dark red has ok head. Tastes smells heavy spice cinnamon nutmeg caramel bitter. Not really a fan more a spice beer I can see where it’s a pumpkin beer but more like a candle smell and taste what you’d expect pass. Stick with the best pumking
