bhensonb (10699) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 29, 2011
Bomber from Beverages4Less in Santee, CA. Pours hazy dark amber with no head. Aroma of pumpkin pie spice, and just maybe a bit of cooked squash. Full bodied - like a barley wine. The flavor is really spice, with a touch of chocolate? The spice is pervasive, seems to be pie plus something else. It’s arguably sweet in the finish, but the spice certainly fends that off.

brokensail (10579) - Orange County, California, USA - DEC 12, 2010
A: The pour is a murky dark amber-orange color with a slightly off-white head. S: An intensely sweet nose to this beer, almost like melted candy. All spice, clove, and cinnamon are here as well, but there’s a bit of a "turned" nature to them. Almost like the spice container was left out in the Santee sun for about 10 years. T: Mostly pie spices on the flavor, and they are a bit overwhelming. It’s also somewhat chalky and bitter. There’s only a mild malty sweetness, and not really any pumpkin flavor. M: The body is medium with a moderate carbonation and a pretty dry finish. D: This recipe needs some work. Not a very good pumpkin or spiced or whatever you want to call it style beer.

BMan1113VR (7820) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 24, 2011
Tasted via bottle at Beverages for Less. 2010 bottle apparently. Pours with a small tan head over a hazed orange body. Aromas are quite pervasively spicy. Huge notes of clove, nutmeg, allspice and cinnamon. Decent malt back bone. Flavors are lightly estery with pumpkin pie spices. Some rich caramel and a bit of a vegital character. Medium to light bubbles with a decently rich mouthfeel.

marcus (6318) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 11, 2013
Bottle from bhensonb. Pours amber with a nice beige head and a pumpkin pie aroma. There is a hearty vegetable and caramel malt flavor with way too much spice.

Draft at the brewery. Pours a cloudy orange/light brown, with off-white head. Roasted pumpkin seeds, cinnamon, allspice, clove, and bready malt. On the dry side of pumpkin ales, not very sweet; also it is pretty high in alcohol, I think it was close to 10%, and the abv does come through a little.

Bomber from Casa De Oro. Tart, almost vinous nose. A hint of spice as well. Quite dry and somewhat saison-like. Decent spice. Highly carbonated. 2011 edition. 8.8%. Alcohol is quite well hidden.

SDalkoholic (2124) - Linda Vista, California, USA - SEP 12, 2012
On tap @ Telegraph Canyon Club: poured a dark glowing orange hue with a thin formation of foam head. The aroma smells similar to that of pumpkin pie that has a heavy base of pumpkin puree and an assortment of spices. The drink is well balanced and carries a strong backbone of malts while dashes of spice come up throughout the drink but aren’t overbearing. I really enjoy how smooth the palate is and how refined the drink goes down the hatch for being a pumpkin beer recipe. This pumpkin beer is one of the better ones on the market and delivers some serious alcohol to the bloodstream. I already know this is for sure going to give me a hangover tomorrow.
