Bottle. Pours a solid amber with a nose of lagered pumpkin. Flavor is week pumpkin with notes of bread and yams. Average mouthfeel. Rogue could do better but mediocre sells. Sad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy deep reddish/orange amber pour, thin off white head .... aroma of vanilla, earthy pumpkins and light pumpkin spices namely cinnamon and ginger .... taste is earthy with light pumpkin spices (light clove, ginger and mostly cinnamon) with some roasted malt qualities and a nice bitter bite in the end that lingered into the finish

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber bottle poured a hazy dark orange w/ a moderate frothy light tan mostly diminishing head and good lacing. Moderate aroma of pumpkin, spices, caramel malts, and floral hops. Initial flavor is light sweet and has a light acidic finish of short duration. Taste is the same as the nose with vanilla and clove as dominate spices and the pumpkin has a nice light roast to it. Light to medium bodied, a mixture of watery & creamy texture giving it a smooth mouthfeel and soft carbonation. I enjoyed the balance of this beer the spices are subtle enough to let the flavor of the pumpkin come thru and a very light sweetness from the malts.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750 ml bottle painted orange. Pours a dark reddish brown. The aroma has pumpkins and spices.The taste is a letdown from the well balanced pumkin/spice aroma. The pumpkin is subdued and the spices are there but it seems to hide what it is-a pumpkin beer. I hate to say it but for $9.69 for a 750 ml I could have got a 6 pack of a better pumpkin beer than this. Scroll past.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
11/20/12. 22oz bomber from Grassroots. Deep amber/brown pour with a nice khaki head that fades to a ring and doesn’t lace much. Relatively stock spiced pumpkin beer aroma with a surprising dose of roasted squash aroma that is generally missing from these type of beers. I’m not saying I’m a fan, really, but it’s there. The flavor is much the same - spice and squash. Props to them for that, but I just don’t think I’ll ever love pumpkin brews anymore.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The pour is a deep dark orange with a thin white head that doesn’t leave lacing. The aroma is subtly spicey. The taste is very clean, smooth, & just enough flavor to make it memorable. The mouthfeel is slightly watery but also a little creamy. It goes down easy. I was just hoping for a little bit more from rogue. Decent.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma is pumpkin like with spice, caramel malt, and paper. The appearance is amber with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall interesting but not overly impressive.
