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 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.

tectactoe (2330) - Michigan, USA - DEC 17, 2014
Bottle: Muddled copper, honing in on full opacity with an off-white, slightly less than an inch-thick head on top. Recedes at a normal pace. Aromas of nutmeg, cinnamon, graham cracker, caramel malt, toasted bread, small hint of apple pie spice (cardamom? allspice?), & a touch of leafy hoppage closing things out. Nice. Nutmeg is heaviest on the palate with cinnamon at a close second. Small leafy bitterness from the hops that fades into a soft, apple-like sweetness with an overshadow of sweet caramel & toasted graham cracker malts. Slight ginger spice works its way into the mix adding a cookie vibe in the final moments. Malty finish of caramel & nutmeg, though not overly sweet. Semi-creamy mouth feel. A really nice pumpkin ale, better than most of the "easily" available offerings in my area.

Butters (3850) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 5, 2009
Pours a clear dark amber with fair light tan head. Nose is caramel and light cinnamen. Flavor is better than most. Cinnamen, pumpkin, and gingerbread. Lots of gingerbread. Great spiced brew.

thirdeye11 (5634) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 24, 2010
(12oz bottle thanks to Exiled) clearish orange with sparse tan bubbles. Nose of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and lightly candied fruit. Taste of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves/allspice, and candied squash. The linger is downright delicious, and soft/appropriate use of spices in this one.

reggiedunlop (3219) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 15, 2011
Pours a fairly clear amber color with a medium light tan head...lively. aroma has soft spices, some caramel...slightly doughy. Flavor has nice earthiness, significant spice, caramely malt , and crisp, spicy hops to balance it out. Mouthfeel is lively and the finish is earthy and spiced. Very autumnal!

dmac (4209) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - OCT 28, 2011
Growler shared by msiano, thanks Mike. Poured a good looking clear rusty orange with a tiny touch of off white head. Aroma is like a spicey pumpkin pie, pumpkin, cinnamon, nutnmeg, grahamn cracker. Medium bodied with very subtle carbonation, hey it’s a grolwer, and a lingering dry finish. Flavor of cinnamon, nutmeg, touch of vanilla extract, dry grains and alcohol. Solid stuff.
