3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Pale orange and copper colored in appearance with a cap of white foam. Aroma is a blend of nutmeg, pumpkin pie puree and ginger along with a noticeable caramel malt presence. The taste leads off with a slightly tart and vegetal baked pumpkin flavor backed by lots of cinnamon, clove and allspice. Also some caramel and lightly toasted malt in the background. Alcohol notes are fairly well hidden. Mouthfeel is creamy with moderate carbonation and a dry, spiced finish. Not bad on its own but would probably taste better with a nice meal as some of the flavors are a little overpowering.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz purchased in California. Pours cloudy copper with medium head that fades quickly. Nose has slight oxidative note that clears in a bit. Spices dominate the ale underneath, but malt eventually appears. Hop notes are well matched to malt bill and stand up to spices. Not a big fan of any spiced pumpkin brews, but this is a well done example

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy amber color, medium sized white head. Spicy aroma, caramel, some malty sweetness, resin. Taste of caramel, pumpkin, spices, lots of sugar, some cinnamon notes. Creamy texture, medium body, soft carbonation. Extremely long spicy caramel and pumpkin finish. Alcohol is very well hidden. This was my first pumpkin beer ever, it was really hard to even think about what to expect, but I could get used to them real quick.

Old rating. Disappointing pumpkin beer....lots of nutmeg and spices. Decently sweet and malty. Just generic boring pumpkin beer.

An enjoyable beer I picked up in Boston. Definitely worthwhile to try, but not a standout in the pumpkin beer category.

Bottled 650ml. -at O’Hara Zagreb. Golden coloured, minimal white head, light perfumy nose. Sweet malty, alcoholic, unbalanced presence of cinnamon and sugar with some caramel in rather sweet and sticky finish. Not my type.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
As orange a color as I’ve seen in a beer, this pours with quickly faded head. Immediate traditional pumpkin spices on the nose - pretty close to the pie I love! Flavor/mouth-fee is quite a ride... initial pumpkin quickly turns to burst of yeasty, slightly sour alcoholic funk, which in turn, quickly dissolves to a clean finish and lasting mellow aftertaste.

Bold pumpkin flavor with a ton of nutmeg, perhaps too much. Thick head, assertive spicyness lingers.
