Appearance: clear medium amber, one fat finger of creamy light tan head diminishing gradually to a thin cap, patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: vegetal pumpkin and spices, light sweet malt, faint grassy and earthy hops. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, mild bitter, light tart. (8/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, short duration finish. (4/5) For this one, I’m going out on a limb a little on the scoring, but ultimately it’s a beer I would actually drink again - and for a pumpkin beer, that’s saying something! It’s not that it doesn’t taste or smell like pumpkin, because it does, but rather that the mildness feels both balanced and deliberate, like a half strength pumpkin pie, and it doesn’t lose sight of the fact that it’s also supposed to smell and taste like beer. This one really is worth trying on its own merits. (15/20)

Not a bad pumpkin ale. Has nice flavours of pumpkin and fall spices. Phillips can’t go wrong!

Bomber from BC Liquor store in North Burnaby. Meh. No need for a detailed description here. Another ho-hum fall seasonal offering, with a vague mish-mash of pumpkin spices. Predominant is nutmeg, cinnamon, perhaps a trace of vanilla. Why it even tastes a little bit like beer! Instead give me something like Russell Brewing’s Naughty & Spiced Porter, or Parallel 49’s Lost Souls Chocolate Pumpkin Porter, both of them delicious and innovative seasonal offerings. Anyway, we need a number for the record. 2.6 it is.

Bottle. Golden colour with an off-white head that fades quickly. Smells and tastes like a pretty average malty pale ale with some nice enough pumpkin and spice notes. Pumpkin and spice are just too subtle - not a big flavour here. Not a bad flavour. Just too light.

Amazingly clear amber body with tall fizzy cap floating on top, but I will give the looks a bonus point for a really cool bottle shape, and nice label design. Aroma is mild but pumpkin can noticed along with mild spice, and some normal lager characteristics. BORING SO FAR!! I have never really been a fan of the pumpkin style but I do always get one a year to have on Halloween. Taste is thin and watery, pumpkin spice with a hint of bloody nose. Ugg is this beer done yet? So much carbonation............ BLEEEEEEETCH!! Kind of getting better the longer I drink. Apricot?? Nothing really bad here but it just isn’t that good.

Flat copper body not much head. Pleasant pumpkin pie aroma. Flavour is sweet pumpkin spice but which is initially masked a little but an assertive tang on the palate which then fades. Okay. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nothing too crazy. Pours a clear orange. Some sweet malty and pumpkin aromas. Flavors are a bit better. Pumpkin, some spicy woodsy and cinnamon notes. Quite average.

When pouring the shape of the bottle makes a pleasing glug glug sound and gives a lively head to boot. Nice aroma with only a hint of spices. Taste is slightly hoppy with muted pumpkin, but finishes with more pumpkin.

Bottle - Aroma is all pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg. Clear gold with a fluffy white head. Pumpkin is there although a bit artificial tasting. Nutmeg and cinnamon are in good balance if you like the pumpkin to shine. Absolutely no bitterness, which I would have liked just for some depth. Not bad, with a bit of tweaking could be very good. I will try this next year and see how they do.

650mL bottle to glass Pumpkin, nutmeg, mace, wheat, bubble gum and squash. Clear light amber with a Lot of particulates floating around, nice effervescence, and no head. Slightly sour, tinny, pumpkin and a slightly sweet nutmeg finish. Medium bodied, slick and a bit gritty. I really had a hankering for a pumpkin beer, This satisfied that craving but as pumpkin beers go this was pretty mediocre.
