CampesinoTino's rating

CampesinoTino (800) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Bomber. Pale orange and copper colored in appearance with a cap of white foam. Aroma is a blend of nutmeg, pumpkin pie puree and ginger along with a noticeable caramel malt presence. The taste leads off with a slightly tart and vegetal baked pumpkin flavor backed by lots of cinnamon, clove and allspice. Also some caramel and lightly toasted malt in the background. Alcohol notes are fairly well hidden. Mouthfeel is creamy with moderate carbonation and a dry, spiced finish. Not bad on its own but would probably taste better with a nice meal as some of the flavors are a little overpowering.

ROGUE (2215) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - NOV 9, 2016
22oz bottle and on tap at SLL tasting. Pours a deep bronze color with orange hues and a 1/2 inch white head. Smells of pumpkin and subtle spices. Taste is vegetal pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, light malts, and some alcohol on the finish. Feel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

cheap (5703) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 12, 2016
Tap IPH. Pale. Sweet volatile barley wine aroma. Taste is not as strong as barley wine but its gitten there. Pumpk in the background. Not over the top in the spice arena. Fairly well balanced for the alky content. Civilized at times. Warming sensations down the gullet on the finish. Not bad for a higer alky beer.

tightslice (1182) - Redwood City, California, USA - OCT 7, 2016
Bottle from BevMo! in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is pumpkin liqueur, halloween punch, nutmeg, cinnamon. Taste is sweet and spiced...very artificial, thin and syrupy. Maybe some kind of latte syrup flavoring. Very disappointing.

Holtguy (175) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 27, 2016
Amber / orange pour. Aroma of malt with ginger, and a hint of pumpkin pie. This beer was like an old ale or imperial red ale or some such thing, but with notes of various pumpkin pie spices - allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg - that come through at different times. Some hop flavor, mild bitterness and alcohol warmth. For a pumpkin ale, this may be my favorite since it does not taste like an overly sweet piece of pumpkin pie. Very good.

Pours a clear golden amber. Aromas of all spice, nutmeg, a touch of pumpkin. Nice spicy taste with pumpkin notes.

wlajwl (6597) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 22, 2016
Aroma is pumpkin, spices, fruit/floral and mild oxidation. The flavor is pumpkin/yams, fruit, medium sweetness, malts and a mix of slight tartness, sour, heat and acidity in the finish.

dionysus (1485) - Arizona, USA - JAN 2, 2016
Bottle pours deep orange/amber with a frothy eggshell head. Aroma is sweet and spicy with notes of cinnamon, clove, toasted caramel, pumpkin, and gingerbread. Flavor displays baking spice, pumpkin flesh, carrot and definite alcohol presence. Overall body is moderate and the finish is somewhat boozy.

asedzie (819) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 8, 2015
Bottle. Deep amber. Nose is caramel, grain, marshmallow, spice. Flavor is a bit raw and hot upfront - fruity esters in the back. Very strong alcohol notes in this bottle, but still pumpkin notes predominate.

Orange hue, murky visibility with mostly diminishing white fizzy head, no lacing. Orange hop, light fruit, nutmeg, dark malt and cologne aromas. Orange syrup taste up front with some pumpkin and spice with more of a light citrus hop finish.
