3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass. Light foam that dissipates very quickly to a ring around the edge. The color is a wonderful crystal clear orange. One of the best looking pumpkin ales I’ve seen. Nice scent. Prominent pumpkin and spice. Slightly sweet. The smell is mostly gone after a few minutes. The taste is primarily pumpkin and spice. Somewhat bitter but I can’t tell if it’s hops or the spices. The mouth feel is unusually light for a 9% beer. It drinks almost like a soda. No noticeable alcohol taste. Overall this is a good pumpkin ale but not as good as I expected. Does not stand out in the crowd. The light mouth feel is unusual.
**The label is very cool. It alone is enough to convince me to buy it. Very nice work.

Bottle. Cloudy, light orange with a medium head. Aroma is a pumpkin spice with strong hints of honey. Taste is sweet up front, almost a honey taste in the middle and a well balanced finish. Just a tad cloying.

Bottle. Slightly cloudy golden orange pour with a thin white head. A surprisingly intense pumpkin beer, flavour is stronger than the aroma, lots of pumpkin notes with some sweet caramel, subtle spice and slightly vegetal. Nice.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber. Nutmeg aroma with notes of pumpkin, cinnamon and booze. Pours orange-copper colored with a thin tan head with good retention and lacing. Starts with good pumpkin and nutmeg flavors. Finishes dry with a lot of cinnamon and boozy ending that lingers on the palate. Good at the beginning, but a little boozy for a pumpkin.
