fiulijn (20516) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 29, 2015
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Hazy dark amber color. Strong, malty, but pretty heavy on the spices; sweet.
Not too fond of spice beers, but it’s professionally brewed.

2.5
mcberko (17845) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 9, 2012
22 oz. bottle, pours a clear golden orange with a small beige head. Aroma of pumpkin seeds, slight spices and stale malts. Flavour is quite watery, with light spices and not much body at all, just a bit of spice. Very watery and bland. Nothing offensive, just boring.

3.2
Ferris (15332) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 19, 2013
Bottle - Pumpkin and spices. Clear orange with a long lasting head. Pumpkin flavour with a bit of orange but not much else. Medium body, a decent pumpkin beer

bhensonb (15208) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 30, 2011
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours ruddy copper with a foamy off-white head. Aroma of mild roast malt and a little bit of spice. Med minus body. Flavor is typical pie spice. And I think they put more than a little spice in this. I’m never sure if I’m tasting squash. I’m not all that fond of squash. But pie spice is pretty good. Cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice (what sort of misnomer is that?) is pretty good. Said that already.

3.3
Ratman197 (14842) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 29, 2013
Bomber poured a clear orange amber with a small lingering amber head. Aromas of caramel, ginger, clove, cinnamon and light pumpkin. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of caramel, clove, cinnamon, light allspice and light pumpkin with a crisp dry lingering spiced finish.

slowrunner77 (12051) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 5, 2014
"A nice, fairly rich and malty amber base. Aroma is pleasant of light spices and sweet smelling vegetable/pumpkin. Smooth body and flavor. Pie like in a good way with some depth. Well done."

douglas88 (9191) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 30, 2014
Bomber. Pours a clear red copper color with a medium beige head. The aroma is big sweet pumpkins, light pine. The flavor is semi sweet, big pumpkins, oranges, vanilla. Light chocolate. Very good.

3.2
after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - OCT 2, 2011
Draft at ncbc. Pours a murky dark amber with virtually no head. Mild caramel and pie nose. Creamy medium body with light carb. Caramel and a little bit of pie spice on the mid palate. Mild finish. Needs a lot more presence and complexity.

3.7
AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - NOV 11, 2010
Clear copper color/ light tan head. Boiled pumpkin aromas with cheap weed, caramel. smooth medium body. Roasty nutty pumpkin seed flavors with sweet caramel, fall spices- good pumpkin beer.

3.1
5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 2, 2011
Bottle:   Hefty amber, rather dark, sediment abounds at the end of this bottle, moderate tannish head, spotty lacing.   Very muted spiced nose.   Its as if there is Cinnamon, Nutmeg, and associated spices, but they are all muted/watered down.   Very soft spices on the tongue.   Decent malt base, smooth, clean, but not as spiced as most.   I do get more of an actual squash/pumpkin/gourd sort of flavor tho.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   I gave a couple samples to some friends (who love Pumpkin Beer), and neither figured this as a Pumpkin Ale in a blind taste test.   While some seem overly artificial in their spices, this one seems more genuine.   However, because it lacks the usual spices, it becomes rather dull.   Damnit, its like the spices want to come out to play... but can’t.
