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!

Bottle, thanks to ksurkin. Pours copper, with an off white head. Aroma is like pumpkin pie...pumpkin and spices. Also has some caramel. Flavor is like a liquid pumpkin pie. Rich and tasty, but not too heavy as to be overwhelming. The best pumpkin brew I’ve tasted. Beautiful stuff. Need more....

warmupmytaster (5) - Virginia, USA - AUG 29, 2010 does not count
a: cinnamon and nutmeg with a slight undertone of pumpkin a: rusty copper, orange; significant eggshell frothy head t: surprisingly less spicy than the aroma would indicate. smooth pumpkin while not being completely a desert beer. (southern tier pumpking being the ultimate desert beer) generally a very solid pumpkin beer contender. p: moderately smooth with late lingering spice as the beer warms, it gets smoother and the sweet pumpkin grows. fantastic.

Aroma: The pumpkin is overpowering, and it’s pumpkin, too, not pumpkin pie or pumpkin pie spices, but there are hints of floral hops underneath. Apperance: Cloudy Orange with a white head that faded quickly. Taste: Sweet, sweet, sweet. Palate: Medium body with creamy texture, soft carbonation, almost flat, and a lasting finish. Overall: The label does not lie. This tastes like pumpkin pie--rich, spicy and creamy. Of all the pumpkin beers I’ve tried this Fall, this would certainly be one of my go tos.

hopscotch (10265) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Clear burnt-amber pour with a tiny, creamy, white head that dissipates quickly. The aroma delivers loads of pumpkin pie spices, vanilla, graham and pumpkin meat. Medium-bodied and sticky with moderate carbonation. The flavor is a melding of sweet pumpkin pie spiciness, vanilla and caramel. Finishes malty and sweet with a hint of crusty bitterness. Kudos to biggsbowler for sharing this bottle of world class beer!

Bottle. Pours an orange/amber-ish with a white head. Aroma is pumpkin pie, cinnamon, pumpkin, nutmeg, vanilla, pie crust. This beer tastes like a pumpkin pie. Great flavors with cinnamon, nutmeg, pie crust and pumpkin. Medium bodied and great balanced for fall!

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.
