COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pumpkin Spice Ale
It finally happened. Jerry made a pumpkin beer. He hates pumpkin beers. Good thing this is the best pumpkin beer in the whole damn universe. A healthy dose of gourd-flesh in the mash and a bit more in the boil pair well with the spice-sac we dangled in at the end of the boil. Some gentle German hops help bitter up and balance out this ale. Suck the flesh. Pumpkin flesh.

On tap in a sampler glass. Pours brown with a beige head. Aroma of caramel and light chocolate malts, a little pumpkin and spice, and some floral hops. Flavor a nice blend of everything without too much pumpkin. Average texture. A pretty good pumpkin beer.

Keg @El Lúpulo Feroz, Oviedo. 06-04-2016.
In short: spicy roasty ale.
Pours hazy cooper with frothy off white head. Moderate head retention, poor lacing. Nose is roasty, spicy, sweet, some chickory. Taste is some dry, harsh, sweet, little sour.

Dogbrick (11164) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 19, 2016
Sample at Brass Tap Polaris. The beer is a hazy dark amber color with a medium thick foamy off-white head that diminishes gradually to a film. Partial rings of lacing. Aroma of pumpkin spice, fruit and malt. Medium body with flavors of sweet pumpkin pie, caramel malt and fruit. The finish is sweet with a malt and spice aftertaste. Decent overall.

UPDATED: APR 8, 2016 Caña en el Lupulo 01..04..2016. (r19). Color marrón cobrizo muy oscuro con poca espuma beige. Aromas y sabores mal todos tostados ligeramente caramelizadas (al final en caliente) con predomi io de calabazas y bastantes toques de especias y pudientes con cierto picante final. Cuerpo medio algo pastoso y seco con ligero amargo final entremezclado con calabazas y pimientos. Buena y bastante original. Para repetir.

Draft. A boring pumpkin ale, some spices, pretty sweet for the abv, not amusing.

Cybercat (4983) - Georgia, USA - DEC 17, 2015
Pours opaque chocolate brown with a bubbly light tan head. Cinnamon and pumpkin are the main players in the aroma, but gladly share the olfactory stage with malty and slight woody hop tones. Flavor explodes with spicy pumpkin, like a liquid pumpkin pie, while malty and subtle fruity tones follow in the wake. Wake? Whatever. I’m good at mixing metaphors. Mouthfeel is firm and smooth, yet quite fizzy. Flesh out your gourdin’!

Tmoney99 (13241) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 26, 2015
Draft. Poured hazy dark pumpkin color with a large off-white frothy head that was mostly lasting with very good lacing. Medium to heavy pumpkin pie and spice aroma. Medium to full body with a creamy texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy pumpkin spice sweet flavor with a medium to heavy spice sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid seasonal beer.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 11, 2015
Pint on tap at Dutch’s. Clear dark red brown color. Good finger of khaki head. Leaves good lace. Medium to bigger body. Good pumpkin character. Nice toastiness, touch of vanilla. Moderate spiciness. Touch of chocolate. Medium-plus body. Smooth, kind of soft/crisp, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Moderate bitter taste, light sweet, mild spicy. Very solid, tasty pumpkin beer. A bit spicy on the first small sip, but really nice and easy-drinking once I get into it, with a lot of complexity that comes out later.

Euston Tap. Keg. Hazy deep amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is smooth and a little soft with decent fine carbonation. Smooth sweetish dark malts, some creamy sweetness. Mellow cinnamon and cloves. Mild fruity pumpkin. Light semi dry finish. A mellow Pumpkin beer, and the better for it.
