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.

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.

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

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Au nez, on sent le biscuit, le thé tchaï et le grain. En bouche, on goûte bcp le biscuit Graham, la cannelle, la vanille, le grain et un peu la citrouille. La finale est sucrée, caramélisée, douce et cannellée. Très agréable à boire et ne tombe pas sur le cœur.

The aroma has a caramel malt, and more prominently, many spices. The taste is definitely sweet. The finish is malty. Itís an hour unusual beer, and a good one.

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.

Cloudy in appearance and golden in color. Very good lacing with a white bubbly head. Smells like grandmaís(freshly baked) whole made pie crust. Definite pumpkin spice aroma. Reminds me of thanksgiving. Taste like pumpkin pie with a trace of hops. Taste like grandmaís recipe. Medium-bodied beer with a creamy texture. The finish is like the cool whip melting in your mouth. This is the best pumpkin beer i have had so far. I loved it.

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!
