3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled on July 18, 2012.
Appearance: The appearance is a bit disappointing here due to the lack of head, just a very thin off-white head with very poor retention. The body is a very hazy pumpkin color, almost opaque.
Aroma: The aroma is spot on for a desert, cinnamon graham cracker crust comes to mind with some vanilla, not much pumpkin but boy this smells excellent and a huge step away from the rest of pack.
Taste: The intro is a bit mild, hinting at spices while the mid-taste hits hard with the graham cracker crust and some light ginger and nutmeg, pumpkin is noted throughout. This is just a wonderful desert beer.
Palate Medium bodied, oily, with some light prickly carbonation.
Overall: This is the king of pumpkin beers, I don’t think there’s anything better in the world than this for what it’s going for. I recommend this as a replacement for pumpkin pie during desert.

Bomber---a little late to the ratings, also had the past two or three year’s brews. Orange color with a small head, light lacing. Full aroma of pumpkin, caramel and nutmeg. Taste has vanilla up front balanced with the pumpkin and spices. Some caramel on the finish with a light finish unlike most other pumpkin beers. Produce place.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber at home. Aroma of roasted hazelnuts and Frangelico liqueur. Soft, smooth palate. Tastes of creamy canned pumpkin, hazelnuts, powdered ginger. More nutty than pumpkiny. Really great silky mouthfeel. Slightly dry finish.

The only reason I gave this an eight for aroma is beacause I cannot figure out the smell from the begining which I kind of like...Otherwise this is pure pony piss

Bottle. Pours a golden orange color with white head. Big cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin aromas. Pumpkin, vegetal, earthy, slight alcohol flavors. To me the pumpkin flavor is this beer is a little funny. Not my favorite pumpkin beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Great pumpkin ale by ST. Everything I ever wanted from the style: huge on the spices; cinnamon, clove, nutmeg... some bitterness, medium-full mouthfeel, and some booze there as well, sweetness... Malty, without being too cloggy. Very nice stuff; would love to try a barrel aged version of this on rum or bourbon. :)

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber bottle. Reddish amber with off white head. Aroma of pumpkin, cardamom, cinnamon, vanilla, caramel and sweet malts. Taste is sImilar; like a pumpkin pie. Not cloyingly heavy but pretty fresh with lots of pumpkin and spice.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Orange beer with a good white head. Aroma is delicious! Is really sweet, with caramel and cinnamon. But also some toffee and even some chocolate.
In mouth you can find some pumpkin and malty sweetness. Full of spyces and with a more or less bitter end.
The first Pumpkin ale that i like.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Copper with huge pumpkin aroma. Big vanilla in the first sip. Medium bodied and creamy like texture. Barrel aged like flavor, prob from the large amount of vanilla and caramel. Alcohol is well masked. Caramel is also big in the finish. Just too much malt sweetness for me.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a 22 oz bomber with Thangiving dessert. Pours a reddish orange with a small tan head with very little lacing. Aroma is of pumpkin meat, pie spices, caramel, sweet malts, vanilla, and cinnamon. Taste is sImilar to the atom wih some nice pumpkin and pie crust notes. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a slighty dry, medium finish. Overall, a very nice pumpkin ale that went we’ll with the pumpkin pie.
