Pumpkin beer dates back to colonial times. Quality malt was difficult to find them and it was even rumored that several founding fathers were known to brew beer with pumpkin. Our version has a mild pumpkin flavor and a delicate spice character that rounds out to a slightly sweet finish.

brokensail (14038) - San Leandro, California, USA - NOV 11, 2015
On tap @ Flying Saucer - Nashville. Orange colored beer with a thin layer of off-white foam. Some hints of cinnamon, nutmeg, and chalk to the aroma. Caramel malts, lots of bread, and a bit of table sugar. Some slightly stronger cinnamon flavor to it. Pretty decent malt character. Not too shabby, but not great.

Fat @ Brewpub. Klar bärnstensfärgad med ett rikligt vitt skum. Dofter av säd, malt, majs och örter. Smakinslag av svag kryddnejlika, örter, gräs och malt. Mjuk munkänsla, lätt beska i avslutningen.

sawbuck (504) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - OCT 18, 2015
Aroma of spices, some cinnamon, and some candy corn. Light amber with orange hue, thin white head that fades quickly. Sweet malt up front. Kind of off. Notes of cinnamon, some nutmeg. Bitterness weaves in a bit uneven. Watery, chalky mouth feel. Meh.

wedgie9 (2528) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 2, 2014
Tasted on 12/1/14 from a capped 12oz bottle purchased at Craft Brewed. Pours hazy, fiery dark orange with an average white head that slowly recedes to an average collar of lace. The nose is really more cinnamon and traditional pumpkin pie spices than anything else, with some caramel malt. The flavor is the same with the cinnamon really dominating. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice finish. They did a pretty solid job of recreating a pumpkin pie with this beer.

Draft. Hazy orange amber color, medium white head. Aroma of cinnamon and nutmeg. Taste has moderate spice, not over the top. OK.

A: Orangish/Mild Amber Hue, Passes Lots of Light, White Head Ring, Mild Lacing S: Yams, Pumpkin, Mild Allspice T: Pumpkins, Mild Sweet Potatoes, Mild Allspice M: Mediocre Carbonation, Light to Medium Bodied, Mildly Sweet Overall, though the carbonation is low (although 6+ months old), the taste is very smooth and balanced, not like some pumpkin ales that are spice bombs to cover up a lack of pumpkin, this one is very nice and easy drinking.
