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.

Slightly bitter pumkin beer, spices, pumpkin. It is pretty average if you ask me.

Bottle. The aroma is full of pumpkin an spice, a nose full. The taste is on par. A nice smooth pumpkin taste. Also get some nutmeg. Overall a solid effort for a pumpkin ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheBeerGod (5329) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - SEP 29, 2012
Bottle. Dark amber with a tall, foamy beige head. Aroma is cinnamon and nutmeg up front with pumpkin pie notes and caramel following. Taste is big cinnamon and spices, caramel, sweet malt, pumpkin pie and soft hops. Body is medium with a frothy, moderate carbonation. Ends with more spice notes (mostly cinnamon), caramel, pumpkin pie and brown sugar.

jgb9348 (4843) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 28, 2012
Crisp clear light amber body with a bit of a copper glow and a thick, four centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of squash, some light spices of nutmeg and canella and not much else - perhaps a bit of sweetness. Medium-bodied; Assertive metallic and bitter earthy malt with a very light sweetness, some minor spices and not much else - fairly bland. Aftertaste shows some toffee, a bit of the earth and a little squash. Overall, not such a great beer, but not horrible - just not enough complexity and definitely not enough good flavours for the style. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Wegman’s in Malvern, Pennslvania on 22-Sep-2012 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 28-September-2012.

obguthr (4074) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - SEP 27, 2012
Bready pumpkin nose with cinnamon and allspice, not heavily spiced, but pleasantly bready. Crystal clear iced tea colored, medium cream colored head, good lacing. Pumpkin and allspice flavor, finishes with cardamom. Tasteful, not strong. Not bad, just a little tame.

superspak (2828) - Michigan, USA - SEP 26, 2012
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 8/10/2012. Pours fairly crystal clear orange amber color with a nice 2 finger dense cream colored head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Good foamy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, caramel, toast, and graham cracker. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and decent strength. Taste of biscuit, caramel, graham cracker, toast; with light amounts of cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin, and other spices. Lingering notes of caramel, graham cracker, biscuit, toast, pumpkin, and spices on the finish for a short bit. Solid flavor balance with a decent amount of spices. Fairly dry on the finish with no cloying flavors. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with only a small warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very solid pumpkin ale. Some well balanced flavors, but it definitely could use more pumpkin and spices in my opinion. They took the safe route on this one to make sure it wasn’t overly cloying on the spices. As a result, this is very easy to drink and quite enjoyable.

Cybercat (3497) - Georgia, USA - SEP 23, 2012
Malty aroma has an overtone of cinnamon and subtle pumpkin and earthy notes. Pours a dark orange amber with a thick, fluffy, persistent pale tan head. Flavor has malty and caramel notes with hints of pumpkin, cloves and cinnamon. Smooth texture has firm body and good fizz. If you like pumpkin beers, pick this one from the patch.

AR (1000) - Georgia, USA - SEP 22, 2012
Mild pumpkin aroma. The flavor was a spicy pumpkin, mostly cinnamon. Unfortunately, the flavors weren’t fresh, but rather stale.

355 ml bottle picked up at The Beer Store in Montichello, NY. Pours a dark amber color with an off white head. Aroma is malt squash, and punmkin spices. Taste is malt pumpkin and bitter spices. Palate has some unnatural pumpkin and spices, that ends dry and spicy. Not a favorite.

Uninspired pumpkin beer, light pumpkin pie nose and flavor, thin body, cream soda color, modest head.
