3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught from the growler station at Green’s. Pour is a hazy, orange-brown with nice carbonation and a thin, off-white head. Nose is pumpkin, bread and brown sugar. Basically smells like pumpkin bread. Flavor starts out crisp and hoppy like a light pale ale before transitioning into spicy notes and finishing with a sweet, pumpkin bread kick with a bit of lingering alcohol flavor. I purchased this beer because I’d never had a pumpkin brew and was not disappointed. A full-flavored, delicious seasonal beer.

Beautiful apple cider gold, one of the best looking beers I have ever seen! The aroma is spices, cinammon, pepper, pumpkin, the taste is of course pumpkin seeds, spicy as heck, great smooth taste on the swallow! This is a drinker, you can drink this with anything all day. You don’t even notice the 8.6 ABV, great beer.

2014 drank one year later. Bomber into wine glass. Appropriately,a squash orange pour, very minimal head. Actually smells like pumpkin, or pumpkin bread. Very light on the spice, barest hint of ginger. In the mouth, similar. Liquidated pumpkin bread. Very mild hops in the mouth. Generally not a fan of pumpkin bears since they tend to be spice and not gourd, but this is the opposite, and therefore rather pleasant.

Bottle. Clear amber with no head. Pumpkin, spices, and vanilla. Not bad for a pumpkin beer.

On tap at Middletown Fine Wine and Spirits. Pours amber with a white head. Light lacing in the glass. Nice pumpkin aroma with some nutmeg and caramel aromas. Flavors pop. Nice pumpkin pie flavor with spices in the finish. A little alcohol warmth at the end. Very nice ale.

Great aroma! Smells of pumpkin and caramel. Mouthfeel was weird, but welcoming carbonation. Pumpkin was strong an powerful, caramel on the taste was weird.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet spicty aroma. Pours a beautiful pumpkin orange. Nicely carbonated. Sweet taste with definite pumpkin aftertaste. Alcohol nicely hidden. This beer is a real treat. One pint was enough for me with the ABV and the sweetness being what it is. I will definitely buy another bomber.

Such a total pumpkin pie aroma, the vegetal pumpkin as well as the bready crust. A lot of spices, cinnamon, nutmeg, all pumpkin pie smells. Taste mirrors the very vegetal pumpkin with a lot of spices too. Some sweetness, but really just an overall dazzling blast of pumpkin pie. Quite delicious.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Hazy orangish copper with a fine head and good lacing. Aroma is pumpkin, nutmeg, some other spices, and brown sugar. Reminds me of Autumn and the trees changing colors. Really digging this aroma. Flavor is mostly sweet but I can taste some bitterness which makes me think of hops although I couldn’t pick any up on the aroma. Palate is medium bodied, very smooth, moderate carbonation, and leaves a little aftertaste which makes a second sip inevidable. Alcohol is well hidden but is slightly warming a few seconds after swallowing. Expectations exceeded.

Light straw pour ith minimal white head. Nose is sweet with ginger and nutmeg. Immediate mild resins hop yields to a potpourri of flavor. Candy sweet malt mixes with dominant nutmeg, brown sugar, French toast. Ends with subtle cinnamon and marshmallow. Best pumpkin brew I’ve had. Cheers to my sensual friend FunkyBrewster for this nectar.
