Coppery orange, huge white head. Smells more pumkin like than spicy, whic is unusual. Taste is pretty sweet and spicy, though. Seems a bit too sweet, as well.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Location: Bomber from Buy Rite, 9/19/13
Aroma: The aroma is spicy and malty, cinnamon, pumpkin, nutmeg, with underlying earth and ginger
Appearance: It pours a dark orangish-reddish color, with a small beige head and decent lace
Flavor: It is full the same spices, maybe more so than the nose, light sweet, mild bitter, light booze
Palate: The body is medium, it has a slight tingle, clean, fresh feel, and a dry, spicy finish
This is a great example of the Pumpkin beer style. Really quality stuff. Everything balances nicely, and the spice prevents it from being too sweet. I was looking for a really nice beer, and this exceeded my expectations. If you like this style you can’t go wrong here.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ml. Clear dark copper-brown with a lasting smattering of cream on top. Nose is nice mix of pie spices and dry leaf, with a bit of pumpkin peeking through. Flavor is earthy-spiced toffee with pumpkin, orange zest, cream and tea leaf. Medium body is smoothly carbonated, balanced and hides the abv well.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark clear ruby color with a filmy/foamy light brown head; Light carbonation & good lacing. Aroma of pumpkin pie, cinnamon, spices, cloves, and vanilla. Flavor starts out with a strong cinnamon & clove flavor; Pumpkin Pie feels more organic and takes a back seat. Also getting clove, pale malt, slight hoppiness. Body is on the heavier side with moderate carbonation. Decent Pumpkin Ale but I’ve had better

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Definitely a beer that grew on me as it warmed. Dark orange-brown color, minimal head. Great pumpkin pie nose. Not too sweet, great pumpkin and spice flavor. Initially, however, the ABV was apparent in a bit too boozey sweetness.

Bomber bottle. Aroma is pumpkin spice. Appearance is brown with very little head. Taste starts pumpkin spice then gets a little sweet before dulling to a pumpkin flavor. Palate is spicy. Overall, a good pumpkin beer. Would buy again.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2013 16 oz. draft at the Sam Adams Beer Tent at the Big E in West Soringfield , MA. Dark amber pour wispy head, good lacing. Smell is pumpkin pie allspice, cinnamon, brown sugar, a bit of booze. Taste is very full, heavy malt, brown sugar and spices, big pumpkin flavor! Hard to find pumpkin ales that actually taste like pumpkin. I like this one, more of a sipper at 8.5% ABV. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
