COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
According to Linus there are 3 things never to discuss with people: religion, politics, and the Great Pumpkin. Our Pumpkin Ale, on the other hand, has made quite a buzz from New Hampshire down to Florida. Every season has its pleasures. Harvest your own with our Pumpkin Ale and reap all that Autumn has to offer. Brewed with pumpkins from only the most sincere patches, this seasonal brew is golden orange, crisp and delicious, with an innocent hint of cinnamon and nutmeg that articulates our favorite season. Gather with friends and family and enjoy the change of seasons while savoring a pint of Pumpkin Ale. Just like the leaves, itís gone after Thanksgiving.

Pours a clear amber with a thick lt tan head...lively...decent lacing and retention. aroma has roasty malt, some spices, and a hint of pumpkin. Flavor is mostly spicey and a bit muddled...a bit of earthiness at the end. Mouthfeel is a bit thin...almost watery and the finish is spicy and a bit dry.

evergreen0199 (2011) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2011
On tap at Good Beer NYC. An amber/orange coloured pour with a small white head on top. Aroma of pumpkin and spice. Tastes of pumpkin, spice, caramel, slight sweetness. OK for a pumpkin beer but give me the Southern Tier any day.

mcox90 (1545) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 10, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours clear copper with a 1 finger white head. A little bit of lace. Aroma is cinnamon, nutmeg allspice and a bit of pumpkin. Taste is the same. Medium bodied. Goes down smooth. Easy drinking.

PorterPounder (5542) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 8, 2011
Tallahassee, Fl - Publix Supermarket - Lake Ella - 12 oz bottle. Medium copper pour, sparkling, off-white bubbly head that leaves a brief trace of lace. Aroma is spicy-sweet with with some light potpourri accents. Flavor sweet, just enough spiciness, some nutmeg, pumpkin pie spice, a bit of molasses. Not as overbearing as some pumpkin ales. Mouthfeel is thick enough.

robgibbens (412) - Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA - OCT 7, 2011
A promising pour of amber liquid with a tidy head that leaves some decent lacing. The aroma is lightly spiced. The taste is mild and slightly sweet. Itís not a malty sweet though. It seems like the malt is complemented by the spices. Itís not too pronounced. This beer finishes clean and refreshing.

cmc619 (409) - California, USA - OCT 7, 2011
Expected amber-orange from bottle into regular pint glass. Ok head that settles to a thin cap. Aroma is weird blend of spices, hops, and rubber. Flavor starts out like that old-candy note you get in lagers that have gone bad (not skunkiness). Spice is there, but hard to get past the bad-lager quality. Pumpkin pie in the finish, which is nice.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4918) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2011
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a medium caramel color with a huge foamy orange-cream head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was dryish and dusty with fairly strong cinnamon and nutmeg. The flavor was dryish and bitter with a strong cinnamon and nutmeg presence but little else of note. Medium length dry and spicy finish. Medium body. Ok.

Capa (2029) - Manama, BAHRAIN - OCT 6, 2011
Copper with a white head. Vegetal pumpking and light malt in the aroma. Medium body. Flavor is similar to aroma. The vegetal bit throws me off. Easy going but kinda boring.

Bottle. Pours clear amber with white head. Nose/taste of pumpkin, all spice and nutmeg. Taste is slightly metallic with a dry pumpkin spice finish. Lightish body.

Not too bad of a pumpkin ale. Flavors of spice and pumpkin are there, but not overwhelming or artificial. A slightly malty flavor beneath.
