Tap at the Hangover. Lightly spiced, quite sweet, lots of pumpkin. Quite nice though. Full on but easy to drink. As with most pumpkin beers, one is probably enough for me.

bhensonb (13730) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 20, 2013
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours copper with a slight creamy off-white head. Nearly beige. Aroma is lots of pie spice. Clove and cinnamon seem dominant. Med body. Flavor is very smooth - not too harsh - not too light. Not too sweet. Certainly not dry. Appropriate spice levels. Very nice version.

Hypo_Luxa (59) - Osaka, JAPAN - NOV 9, 2013
Aroma is strong spice. Smells like a can of pumpkin puree. Cough medicine taste, snappy mouth feel. Sweet hard candy aftertaste. Not all bad for a pumpkin beer.

Nocturne (1709) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2013
On tap at Brouwer’s Cafe, Seattle. Mostly clear copper with a fluffy white head. Pumpkin spice aroma is a bit muted but definitely there. Heavy mouthfeel which lands a big hit of nutmeg and cinnamon just as it feels about to subside. Good spices, but not the most drinkable.

Aromas of bread, and spices pours a beautiful red/orange with a creamy white head. Malty with a lot of cinnamon and a bitter finish, pretty good

I'm partial to this style, and this is perhaps the best "session" pumpkin ale I've tried. Bottle purchased "pre-release" at brewery. Strong pumpkin aroma following a vigorous pour. Perfectly balanced in sweetness and spiceness, over a flavorful pumpkin malt base. Just nice. Incredibly balanced. A- would love to see an imperial version. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jgb9348 (5522) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 23, 2013
Hazy brown coloured body with a nice copper glow and a rich bronze tint all with a thick, five centimetre tall tan head - very nice. Aroma of pumpkin - spices of all types (allspice, nutmeg and cloves) with a lot of malt and a good deal of caramelised sugars. Medium-bodied; Rich squash flavour with the light spices and a bit of caramel and nuts noticeable. Aftertaste shows a good complexity with a perfect balance of squash and spice and sugars. Overall, a very well made beer with a nice layer of everything all coupled together. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased yesterday at Brown Jug in Anchorage (Northern Lights Blvd) for US$5.99 sampled in my B&B in Copper Center, Alaska on 23-May-2013.

Ratman197 (12810) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Bomber poured a clear orange amber with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of carmel, pumpkin, cinnamon and clove. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of pumpkin, carmel, clove and cinnamon with a smooth lingering spiced finish.

This doesn’t quite hold up to the big dogs in the pumpkin beer category - but I didn’t spit it out...

TheRealMGD (555) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - DEC 18, 2012
Bottle from H&L, a couple months in the main fridge. Hazy orange pour with a medium, white head which fades quckly to a rim and leaves scant lace. Nose is nutty pumpkin with some nutmeg. Medium body with light carbonation. Pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, light citrus and pine hops. Balance is just about perfect. Finish is more spicy, with lingeribg clove, gibger and cinnamon. A shade too much spice for my tastes, but still very good.
