Draft taster. This one is the Pumpkin Fest turned up a few notches. Has an abundance of pumpkin spice on the nose and palate. A little more candy sweetness on the nose and bitterness on the finish.

On tap at Boise brewery. This is a pumpkin beer, plain and simple. Nothing really stands out from the style, but it does hide its ABV well.

Pours a clear golden brown on tap with fluffy off-white head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma and taste are mild on the spice, big on the bready crusty notes, booze well hidden. Not bad, but just another pumpkin beer.

Bottle:   Moderately spiced strong Amber Ale is what we have here.   Not real big on the spices, either nose or tongue.   Feels hefty tho, so body is big.   Light to moderate sweetness.   Spices arent bright, but seem to spike halfway through.   Has a slight touch of candle spices, but its not as heavy as others.   If you dont like overpowered spicy Pumpkins, this is for you.   Wished it could be a little more earthy as the spike that occurs is a little candle like.   Still enjoyable, and happy to have tried it.   Cinnamon and nutmeg need to be brighter, then we’d have something.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours copper with a slight off-white head. Aroma is simply pie spice, tho cinnamon may dominate. Med+ body. Flavor is pie spice, but I think there may actually be a squash note. The spice is strong and flavorful, but not obnoxious. IMHO this is one of the nicer "pumpkin" ales I’ve enjoyed.

22 oz bottle. Aroma: malty and nutty, with hints of fall spices, caramel, bread, and resin. Taste/Palate: sweet, thick, and crisp; finishes creamy, bitter, and slightly astringent.

Poured from a 22. Aroma is very fall spice. Smelled like a candle. Flavor has some spicy cinnamon and pumpkin in the front then yields to a slight caramel, nutty, crisp and bitter finish. Pretty good pumpkin beer offering.

furthur (1225) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - JAN 5, 2015
Tap, little head deep Amber body. Aroma is big clove and banana. Taste is the same, with cinamon and apple, some pumpkin. Really spicy. Almost pie in a glass. Palate is rich, carbonation is good.

Bomber, thanks ctomson! Pumpkin aroma with spicy notes of nutmeg, allspice and cinnamon. Pours orange-amber with a thin white head and no lacing. Starts with good pumpkin flavors with notes of spice. Finishes smooth with the spice flavors of nutmeg, allspice and cinnamon. Good pumpkin beer.

Orange pour, mostly white head. This is a very good beer. The pumpkin and the spices are balanced well with some caramel and toffee notes. Nice autumn drinker.
