Medium brown, amber accents. No head. Light body, touch of gourd and dark sugars, but thin. Touch spicy towards the finish. Ferris (16106) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 11, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2013 Cask - Smells like pumpkin pie, rich spices and sweet malts. Hazy amber with light thin head. Tastes very rich, heavily spices with the malts and pumpkin perfectly balanced. The cask conditioning of this makes it one of the best pumpkin ales I have every had. Picked up a bottle, hopefully it is just as good.
Bottle - Not nearly as good as the cask, but I am not surprised. Toasty alt nose, Pretty sweet and a slight taste of medicine. Pumpkin is there, just a bit in the background. In the bottle this would be a 3.0. bhensonb (15505) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours dark brown with a foamy beige/tan head. Aroma is more treacle than pie spice. Med body. Flavor is treacle, brown sugar, squash, and traces of pie spice. Maybe more than a trace. And raisin it seems. Or something dark like that. Quite different, and a bit earthy. Pretty tasty and stands apart from the usual suspects.

Bomber from Total Wine Virginia Beach. Pours a hazy red color with a medium sized foamy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of pumpkin, pumpkin spice, toasted and herbal notes. Faint earthiness. The taste is pumpkins, toasted malts, caramel and a weird canned tomato thing. Medium bodied. Disappointing. Dogbrick (13398) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Sample at the brewpub. Clear brownish pour with some orange around the edges and a medium foamy light beige head that recedes slowly. Sticky partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of pumpkin spices and malt. Medium body with flavors of pumpkin, ginger and cinnamon plus some sweet malt in the background. The finish is sweet with a pumpkin aftertaste. Above average overall.

"Brown ale in appearance. Nice malty backbone to support the spices, though you cant tell it’s over 8%. the usua; suspects are there...cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice...but not over or underdone with a little natural pumpkin in there as well. Nice brew...and a decent deal at <$5." rosenbergh (11682) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 30, 2015
Draught at the Pike Brewing Co, Seattle, WA.
Dark reddish brown color with a small tan head.
Coke, spices and Dr. Pepper in the aroma.
The flavor is spices, sweetness, malt and pumpkin. Quite tolerable pumpkin ale.

On tap @ the brewpub. Very dark creamy off white head, very nice pumpkin aroma, light spice. Excellent expression of pumpkin on the palate, with spice taking a backseat for a change. Some raisin notes here too. Medium bodied, very satisfying, not as aggressively spiced as most pumpkin seasonals. tderoeck (10002) - Gent, BELGIUM - DEC 14, 2015
