Pumpkin Ale is pumpkin pie in a bottle. Skip the pie after dinner and just have a couple of these! An American Amber Ale flavored with all those fall spices we love!

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2009 1st rating for this brew! 12oz bottle from grape & gourmet, batch 91009. pours a very nice clear, dark copper with a whispy, off white head and a solid ring of lace. aroma is great and very similar to pumpkin cheescake with big, sweet pumpkin notes, graham cracker crust, and pure spice notes of cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg, with a touch of caramel malts. flavor is excellent as well with natural pumpkin flavors blended with sweet vanilla, big spice notes of cinnamon and nutmeg, orange peel and clove, and a touch of nutty, carrot cake with a lingering, spiced finish. palate is medium bodied and very well carbonated with a great balance of sweetness and fall spice. overall, another great new brew from Geoff and AleWerks!

Tap - mellow mushroom - Charlottesville - end of the keg, pours a cloudy amber with 2 fingers of head. Aroma is faintly of dough, pumpkin pie, spices, clover and cinnamon. Taste is a touch sweet with the spices on the finish, finishes slightly dry. Surprisingly good!

Bottle to glass. Pours a mostly clear amber light brown color with a light tan head. Aroma is full of pumpkin, spices, not overly sweet. Flavor is packed with pumpkin as well, well balanced, again, not too sweet like some of the other pumpkin beers. Definitely one of the better ones.

12oz. bottle, with thanks to ksurkin for the nice bonus. Pours a clear dark orange with a moderate off-white head that settles to a thin ring. Aroma is a nice pumpkin pie spice, with nutmeg, cinnamon and brown sugar. Flavor is more pumpkin pie, nutmeg, spices and a little brown sugar sweetness. A little reminiscent of a nice apple butter in some ways. I’m not really a big fan of pumpkin beers but this is a good one, thanks again Ken!

Bottle - Gold pour with an orangish hue. Very little head and it is gone in a flash. Nose of all the normal spices (nutmeg, cinnamon, all spice, etc...) Taste follows the nose. Not cloying but just the right amount of sweetness. Probably number 2 or 3 for this style IMO. Great stuff.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear amber color with a small white head. The flavor is a great pumpkin flavor with a semi-dry finish. An excellent pumpkin ale.

It pours a very clear dark amber with tinges of orange. It has a full head. It has aromas of pumpkin, brown sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon, and other spices. It has a sweet, rich taste, highlight by pumpkin, cinnamon, and brown sugar. This would be what I would imagine pumpkin pie would taste like as a beer.
