2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz. Bomber. Color is light amber with virtually no head. Aroma is simply pumpkin seed, fresh bread and clove. Flavor is really more of the same with a hint of nutmeg. Finish shows some bitterness, but the memorable note is really just long lasting pumpkin on the tongue. The body is well balanced and showcases the pumpkin nicely if thats your thing. Alcohol kick is deceptive and well hidden. If you like being pummeled by pumpkin in your beer, you’ll love this one. The quality is there, but this beer is just overwhelming with a flavor that I don’t care for.

2011 bottle poured into a tulip glass. Pours a light tan with a yellowish/orange color. 1" head that melts away to nice lacing around the glass. Nose is very unique...sweet, caramel, spicy, pumpkin. Taste is same, so smooth! This is a fantastic beer. A+

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Total Wine- Kennesaw, GA--->shaker. Pours light amber with a modest white head. Aroma pie crust and cotton candy. Taste has sweet pie crust (not sure how they do this), light cinnamon, and clove. Palate is very light and slick (only real negative I can find). Probably my second favorite pumpkin beer to date.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2013 This is a really unique pumpkin concoction that is essentially a desert beer. It is REALLY sweet for a pumpkin beer. Take a sniff, and youíll get pumpkin cake with icing. I dig this stuff, but it is a one-pint kind of beer. Just too sweet to sit with all day. I really love it as an alternative to your typical pumpkin ale, though, but it can be hard to find. Seems like it hits the shelves and is gone within a week or two. EDIT: After drinking this again this past fall on a couple occasions, Iím updating and downgrading my rating. I felt that the nose and flavor both presented with an artificial, cloying, movie-theater popcorn aspect that I could not get past. Hopefully it was just off this past year, but I donít know whether Iíll be trying it again.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
22 oz. bottle. Pours a clear orange with not much of a head. Pleasant aroma - mainly spice: cinnamon & nutmeg mostly. Medium body, spices are predominant, some sweetness in the background. The spices carry through in the finish with just a touch of warming alcohol. Excellent example! Search for this one!

Extremely smooth beer (almost too so). Aroma is full of spices, mostly cinnamon. This is complimented by pumpkin, spice taste. Solid pumpkin beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A light amber beer, with a poor white head. A crystal clear beer. In the nose there are a lot of herbs and sweetness. I smell pumpkin, milk chocolat, bitter liqueur and alcohol. It is a medium bodied beer, with a low and fine carbonation. In the taste there a lot of sweet of the milk chocolat, and somewhat spicy from the pumpkin. There is also a light bitterness and the taste of alcohol. In the aftertaste there is more liqueur bitter, and less milk chocolat. Overal is a decent beer, with pumpkin and chocolat dominating the taste.

Iím not a Pumpkin Beer kind of guy, if you know what I mean... but I am a guy who likes a quality beer that is extra-ordinary, such as this. Spicy, caramel and of course pumpkin.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
22oz bottle. Pours a light amber color with a nice white head that produces a reasonable amount of lacing and decent head retention. The aroma is almost exactly like pumpkin pie filling. There is a hint of graham cracker hidden in there. Lots of cinnamon, all spice, ginger, all the typical seasoning you would think of when thinking of pumpkin pie. Smells wonderful! OH MY GOD! I figured this beer would taste a bit different than the aroma but no! It tastes exactly how it smells. All the typical pumpkin pie flavors you are used to with just a very slight hint of bitterness. This tastes wonderful!!! The palate is a touch too thick for me, but it fits the beer well. This is amazing!! Well done! Tops for fall seasonals!
