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, it’s gone after Thanksgiving.

Bottle, pours a light brown, aroma is a nice spice. Lots of cinnimon and nutmeg in the flavour, a nice backbone and a easy drinking beer

12oz bottle in a lager glass. Pours copper with a lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of pumpkin, spices, caramel and pale malts, and floral hops. The flavor has a good blend of everything, but could have more. Average texture. Not a bad pumpkin beer.

Draft from Thirsty Monk in Asheville, labeled "Mother Pumpkin" for some reason, but with the same description above. Okay, so it’s a pumpkin beer, but it felt lighter than most, with more ginger and cinnamon. I did not dislike it, so that’s saying something.

Not much going on with this one. Drinkable, but very forgettable. Finishes slightly bitter.

boto (1943) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - JAN 21, 2013
12oz bottle: This one pours a crystal clear amber color. There was a bit of an off-white head that didn’t linger too long or leave much lacing. Nose is OK: just a bit of pumpkin pie spices, malts in the background. Taste is a little thin. Some malts, some spices, but not too much of either. Pretty nondescript. OK, but not one of their better offerings. There are much better pumpkin beers out there.

12oz bottle. Dark amber/brown. Taste is malt, pumpkin, bready, some spice.

rob6239 (673) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 13, 2012
Pours good amber colour with a little head to hold in the aroma. Smells good with the pumpkin spices. Tastes mild - a tad spicy too. Easy drinking.

wmubronco1992 (663) - Coldwater, Michigan, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Bottle. Pours amber. Medium sized white head. Strong spice aroma. Some lacing. Spice also in the flavor and mouthfeel, but less intense. More spice then pumpkin. A bit thin. Very drinkable, just not memorable.

keanex (1629) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - NOV 5, 2012
Bottled August 11, 2012.
Appearance: The body is very clear with a dark amber hue, it is absolutely placid though. A light tan head is on top with decent retention and a heavy coating sits on top.
Aroma: Spices dominate the flavor without being too assertive with cinnamon and nutmeg and a sweet malt backing.

Taste: Sweet and balanced rather well, malts and a cinnamon and nutmeg backing, maybe some cloves.
Palate: Medium bodied with light stabbing carbonation.
Overall: Not a bad pumpkin beer at all actually, worth trying and deciding for yourself.

Among pumpkin ales, one of my favorites so far. Lots of spices, not very hoppy. Quite smooth and easy to drink - I think the best overall word would be "pleasant."
