Bomber purchased in the fall from Liquor Express in Huntsville AL and shelved at home. Poured into a snifter on 3/30/13 at around 40 degrees at around noon.

-Pour: Good bit of head and carbonation in the glass. Head dissipated after about a minute or two. Very nice pumpkin hue to the color.

-Nose: Smells like pumpkin pie to me, nothing overly dramatic. I like pumpkin pie though so no worries!

-Taste: Pretty much the same. Cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkins, wheat, some malts, spices. None of them were overbearing, but I felt that this was a much better balance of taste than most other pumpkin beer types that I've tried.

-A medium feel to it with medium carbonation, went down pretty smoothly.

Poured a brownish auburn with decent head on top of a bready, subdued pumpkin and cinnamon aroma, not really noticing much else although a touch of other sugary goodness (probably caramel). It is a light to medium bodied beer that is smooth and easy to drink and finishes crisp and easy thanks to the spice and decent hops and carbonation. As for the taste, a good chunk of pumpkin is noticeable but it is not overpowering and thankfully the spices in here, like a touch of nutmeg, cinnamon, pepper, balance the beer, as do some sweet and bready. So while not overly sweet or pumpkiny, it is also not watery and too spicy and almost no pumpkin is noticeable as I have found in some other (cheap) pumpkin ales. Not the greatest or tastiest pumpkin ale but I got my "pumpkin fix" and it was sweet enough to enjoy as a dessert beer and that's all I ask.

Yet another pumpkin ale...this one using homegrown pumpkins though.

Pours a nice cloudy copper brown with a thin off-white head, not much lacing.

Smells the same as every other good pumpkin ale I've had: like pumpkin pie with a lot of spices!

Tastes of nutmeg, pumpkins, cinnamon and pie. Lots of sweet malts and a nice hoppy backbone. Very well balanced, one of the nicest pumpkin ales I've had.

The mouthfeel is amazing, nice and creamy and just the perfect amount of C02
