"2013 - Witch’s Hair Pumpkin Ale. Not sure that they were going for this, as there was no mention of it on the label description, but damn this thing tasted and smelled of PICKLED ginger. Very. Obviously. Pickled. Not sure how you’d get that by mistake, but it was at the foresfront. Most of us kinda dug it, as it stood out from the crowd. Decent use of spices and pumpkin/squash as well, but pickle dominated :) I’d like to have again just to compare."

Bottle from bhensonb. Pours amber with a nice beige head and a pumpkin pie aroma. There is a hearty vegetable and caramel malt flavor with way too much spice.

Strong pumpkin pie spice aroma coming off an orange/amber body with a thin tan head. That spice hits right away with a strong and somewhat overpowering cinnamon flavor along with (I think) nutmeg and a slight vegetal component. It’s hard to get past all the cinnamon and this would be a fairly tasty pumpkin beer if not for that. I’ll be looking for this next year and hoping they back off the cinnamon.

This beer is excellent. I am usually not a fan of too many pumpkin beers but whatever this Santee brewery did really created something special. I bought a bottle on a whim and have ben back to the liquor store 4 times since and cleaned them out of this one. Grab a bottle and enjoy!

The beer pours a an amber color in the glass. I can pickup a some nutmeg and cloves with a small hint of pumpkin. There is some caramel with some sweet spices and pumpkin.

On tap @ Telegraph Canyon Club: poured a dark glowing orange hue with a thin formation of foam head. The aroma smells similar to that of pumpkin pie that has a heavy base of pumpkin puree and an assortment of spices. The drink is well balanced and carries a strong backbone of malts while dashes of spice come up throughout the drink but aren’t overbearing. I really enjoy how smooth the palate is and how refined the drink goes down the hatch for being a pumpkin beer recipe. This pumpkin beer is one of the better ones on the market and delivers some serious alcohol to the bloodstream. I already know this is for sure going to give me a hangover tomorrow.

Bomber from Casa De Oro. Tart, almost vinous nose. A hint of spice as well. Quite dry and somewhat saison-like. Decent spice. Highly carbonated. 2011 edition. 8.8%. Alcohol is quite well hidden.
