Bottle... Pours clear and deep orange - much like the bottle - with a small, wispy, white head. Good retention. The nose delivers all the right winter spices and I’m actually picking up a substantial measure of pumpkin meat in here – unfortunately, that’s a rarity for the style. Full-bodied with a buttery mouthfeel and prickly carbonation. The flavor is nicely-balanced, malty and fairly spicy - not overdone or overbearing in any way. No pumpkin component here. Finishes lightly sweet, and then the pumpkin component finally makes another appearance. Better than expected.

750ml bomber from Market Liquor in Minot. Appearance: finger of tan head, head does not last, dark copper color, cloudy, little to no lacing. Aroma: pumpkin, cinnamon, cloves, light caramel, slight yeasty bread notes, spicy hoppiness. Palate: medium body, average carbonation, medium-light bitter finish, thin to slightly sticky texture. Taste: sweet caramel and pumpkin, with spicy hops bitterness moving in smoothly to replace it, ending mildly bitter, with notes of spice on finish. Overall, very smooth, love the lightness for a pumpkin beer, good bitter balance for the sweetness.
