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!

12 ounce bottle pours an amber color, aromas of cinnamon, light pumpkin, some ginger, spices, and light crust. Flavors are the same, light nutmeg in the aftertaste, nice offerring of a pumpkin beer.

obguthr (4907) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - OCT 13, 2009
Draft: Pumpkin, clove, cinnamon, and orange aroma in good proportions. Amber orange color, clear, headless. It tastes sweet for the style, but only a bit cloying. Orange, clove, and cherries are present. Subdued mushroom and pumpkin finish. When warmed to near room temperature, the sweetness comes into better balance, while the pumpkin flavor really comes to life, escorted by vanilla. Itís a much better beer warm. One of the best pumpkin ales Iíve had. Of course, that isnít saying a whole lot.

AdamChandler (3920) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 24, 2012
acquired this in a trade. Shared with friends in a Hill Farmstead glass.

A - 1/4 Finger head. The beer is a dark leather with pumpkin appearance sort of an off orange appearance.

S - Pumpkin pie, spices, whip cream and milk.

T - Pumpkin spices, canned pumpkin puree and milk. Very weak taste compared to the amazing smell.

M - 80% carbonation, light bodied

O - Itís a good beer. Maybe better fresh but overall, tasty and worth the trade.

DiarmaidBHK (3861) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2012
Draft at Mellow Mushroom Charlottesville. Pours orange with pleasant notes of pumpkin on the nose which actually smell like pumpkin and not some of the artificial notes you get with other kinds of pumpkin beer. Nice spice notes on the tongue again without the sticky sweetness or artificial vibe. Vlean finisher. One of the best pumpkin beers Iíve had so far.

Big thanks to billab914 on BA for sending me one of these out of nowehere. Pours orangish-copper with a small, fading off-white head. The aroma is nice big pumpkin and spice, along with sweet caramel malt. The flavor is good despite a slight cardboardy (oxidative?) note that I also got in Southern Tier Pumking. Big pumpkin flavors, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. Slight caramel malty sweetness. Medium-bodied with average carbonation and a pretty standard mouthfeel. Enjoyable, but not amazing, pumpkin ale.
