COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 (15444) - Dublin, 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.

Not sure why it is shitbagged. It tastes exactly like pumpkin pie. Isn’t that the sole reason for this style even existing?

Camons (9613) - Hasselager, DENMARK - NOV 30, 2012
Bottle @ Home. Pours golden with a small white head. Aroma of malt, cinnamon, spice, fruit. Flavor is sweet with malt, sweet fruit, loads of cinnamon. Thin body, lively carbonation. Wellbrewed, but to much spice for me. 281112
