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.

Bottle. Orange in color. Has a quickly disappearing, soda-like head. Has some floaties. Aroma is spicy, but light. Flavor has a "pie-crust", nutty finish that most pumpkin ales don’t have making this one better than most.

brokensail (14042) - 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.

Bottle 12fl.oz.

Clear medium orange amber colour with a small to average, frothy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin spices. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and moderate bitter with a long duration, pumpkin - pumpkin spices, cinnamon. Quit balanced - special think of that it is a spiced beer. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20121128]

MmmcKay (1052) - Brentwood, Tennessee, USA - OCT 25, 2012
12 ounce bottle. A lighter bodied pumpkin ale that does a good job of showcasing the pumpkin flavor as opposed to other spices. It won’t win any awards for being rich, big, or complex. But it is drinkable. Notes of pumpkin, graham cracker, cinnamon, and spice. Very decent.

Camons (8407) - 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

5000 (6600) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 28, 2012
Bottle:   Amberish, slightly dark and dirty, some sediment floats about, mild to moderate sandy head, little lacing, little carbonation.   Soft spicy nose, cinnamon and nutmeg.   Pretty straight forward on the tongue with the aformentioned spices.   A little mealy, but not bad.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes clean, a little malty, soft spices linger.   Touch of honey maybe.   Solid example, nothing out of the ordindary but clean and a good example of the style.   Does have a bit of a spiced candle like flavor that lingers well after the finish.
