Bomber from work. Aroma is strong in pumpkin pie spices like nutmeg, clove, maybe cinnamon, bread crust. Pours hazy amber with a medium cream-colored head with decent retention and a little lace. Taste is just like pumpkin pie with some beery hop bitterness thrown in. It’s a little like Pumking in it’s similarity to pumpkin pie or pumpkin bread, but it also has a significant hoppy bitterness to play off the sweetness. This is an excellent pumpkin beer, standing out from the majority out there. sulawang (1161) - - JUL 28, 2016
Visual: Pours clear copper brown with a very small dissipating head, just a touch of lacing, thick ring of retention, steady spread out clusters of activity. fiulijn (20516) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 29, 2015
Nose: cinnamon-nutmeg-clove trifecta mixed with toffee malts and baked pie crust (lvl-6)-intensity
Attack: crisp numbing bite, incoming sticky sweetness
Mid-palate: cascading creamy-tingly mouthfeel, (lvl-7-sweetness), toffee barley malt, pumpkin
Finish: residual cloying sweetness, soft hopped pie spiced bitterness mixed with toffee’d barley malt.
Summary: A ton of pumpkin pie spices but an overly sweet drinking experience halfway through the bottle. The lingering spices at the finish leaves a somewhat unpleasant gag reflex, for me at least anyway.
Draught at St. Augustine’s, VancouverBeerdrinker79 (2188) - Idaho, USA - DEC 19, 2015
Hazy dark amber color. Strong, malty, but pretty heavy on the spices; sweet.
Not too fond of spice beers, but it’s professionally brewed.
22 oz bottle- Pours clear dark orange with a thin light tan head. Aroma is raw pumpkins and pumpkin spice, there is a bit of tartness reminiscent of cranberries. The taste is again real pumpkins mixed with the usual pumpkin spices, hops impart a dryness following through past the swallow. One of the few pumpkin beers that isn’t all spices, and i appreciate that, nice beer. Arayaga2 (2198) - portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 28, 2015
Hazy honey colored with a dense, dimpled cm of off-white head. Aroma is earthy, with all the standard spices. Taste is the same, with a nice, solid maltiness and the appropriate vegetal pumpkinness, but it still finishes clean, with a very light astringency. $4/22oz

Pie spice aroma but the spices really back off on the tongue, which is kind of nice for a (pumpkin beer) change. Some bitterness in the finish is a bit distracting. Crit (4007) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 7, 2015
Hazy amber,lasting tan head.Nice pumpkin pie spice nose and palte which is somewhat watery with unblended bitterness and no noticeable pumpkin mjg74 (3106) - La Mesa, California, USA - OCT 5, 2015
Bomber 7.5% from Capital Market. Just called Pumpkin Ale. Deep hazy amber in color. Mildly sweet nose with a sort of subdued spice character. Nutmeg and cinnamon dominate. Smooth pumpkin flavor with a nice spiced quality. Nice smooth body with a lightly hoppy finish. Tasty pumpkin brew. Sarlacc83 (2287) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 21, 2015
Draft at Laurelwood SE. First pumpkin beer of the fall.
A: Red to the point of ruby, thin white head.
N: Pumpkin, all-spice, clove, cinnamon, graham cracker, earth, biscuit, hint of pine, more of the hop leaves.
T: Sweet and spicy. Fairly bitter, too.
M: Medium light body, crisp carbonation, and no alcohol.
O: A decent pumpkin beer that, however, has too many hops. They threaten to overpower the squash - but I like that this is a pumpkin beer which aims to be pumpkin and beer and not faux pumpkin pie. WABeerFiend (413) - - SEP 14, 2015
Bomber dated 07.15.15. Poured into a pub glass today. A: Pumpkin pie and vanilla. A: 2 finger head. Recedes to a thinner layer of foam. See through reddish amber body with lots of streaming bubbles. T: Pumpkin pie but a bit muted. P: Watery. O: It smells better than it tastes. The flavor just isn’t very strong. It’s ok, but not great.
