COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Bottle. Tastes exactly like the description, pumpkin pie in a bottle. Smells nice with fall spices and not overdone in a sweet way. Pretty good for someone who doesn’t like many pumpkin ales.

hershiser2 (1450) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - NOV 14, 2009
Bottle from Wine Warehouse, Charlottesville. Pours a clear brown-amber with an inch of head. Aroma of pumpkin spice, caramel, cinnamon, ginger, and crust. Flavor of gingerbread, pumpkin, nutmeg and cinnamon, and pie crust. A bit on the sweet side - a tad too sweet for me.

Silphium (3188) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 28, 2012
Draft at Hell’s Kitchen, Norfolk, VA. Clear medium orange body, no head. Nose of nutmeg. Sweet, soft body with lots of allspice and nutmeg. Somewhat flat, but well-balanced and the sweetness is short-lived and not syrupy.

Medium body and carbonation.

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2010
Bottle. Aroma of allspice and mint mostly for me with sweet malt behind. Flavor vaguely vegetal along with the very prominent spices, not much cinnamon, so a bit different than most pumpkins. Pretty rich, quite sweet even over all the spices. Could be a great mood beer I suppose, but I guess not my mood.

pours copper hue with thin white head, it has caramel aroma with hint of spice. slight vanilla bubblegum flavor with floral aftertaste, this brew is well balanced and hides alcohol well.
