This frothy ale was slow brewed with 9 malts, 100% British Fuggle hops, nearly 300 pounds of pumpkin, and a secret blend of spices. Deep orange and amber in color, rich malt flavors, and a subtle spiciness you've never had a Goose like this before! Wildly aromatic and bold.

    One of the better pumpkin beers I have tried. Not overly spicy, yet with enough pumpkin to make it a pumpkin beer. It pours a nice golden orange with a decent white head. Pumpkin and spices mingle with the grainy malt to comprise the aroma. Flavour is malty with pumpkin and spices to round it all out.

    Pours with a frothy, though meek at only half a finger in thickness, tan colored head that sits atop a lightly hazy, reddish amber colored brew. As I pour this I get a light vegetal note that I associate with pumpkin, plus some intermingling nutmeg notes. Upon further inspection I find that the aroma leans towards sweet, with caramelized notes and accentuating sweet spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. The sweet aromatics almost take on a fruity character, but not so much that I can pull out anything specific. The sweet spices are really what is accentuated here (though they are certainly on the subtle side for your typical pumpkin beer) as I don't get much of any ginger character.

    The taste is a touch drier than the aroma would suggest, but it still has a soft sweetness to it. As in the aroma the spices are fairly subtle, they mainly serve to accentuated the other flavors here, though they do add quite a bit to the flavor as well. There is actually a touch of pumpkin flavor here as well, it is in the background and much more subtle than the spices, but provides a sort of fleshy squash / vegetal note here. This has a medium heft to it, just enough to make it a touch chewy, but not enough to get in the way of what is really just a quaffable brew. This is one of the better pumpkin brews out there, it was not too heavy handed with the spices, which is a huge plus, and it had just enough body & sweetness to carry the spices that it does have.

    Poured a copper-amber color with an ok head, mild lacing. The aroma was malty with some light typical pumpkin ale spicing. The flavor was quite neat within the style, started off with a hit of some spice, carbonation amplifies it, then moved toward a sweet malt, pumpkins and candy sweetness, very light must, changing over to a bitter aftertaste that lingers in the mouth to balance a later-lingering sweet pumpkin malt with some cookie dough elements. Lots of transitions going on in the flavor, which I enjoyed. Pumpkin pie in the bottle? Perhaps.

    Wild Goose Pumpkin Patch Ale poured a deep orange colored body with a nice frothy head. The aroma was somewhat strange and didn't really denote the aroma I'd expect from a spiced beer. The taste was typical pumpkin flavor with some cinnamon and nutmeg. Very smooth beer. Loses points on the aroma.
