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.

Nice aroma, cinnamon and nutmeg are present. Pours a clear bronze with a white two finger head. Taste is kind of bland and unbalanced. Palate is thin. Overall, if you are looking for that crisp fall or pumpkin beer, you’ll want to at least give it a shot.

Bottle. Pours a clear creep copper with a thin off white head. Aroma is pumpkin, all spice and nutmeg. Taste is same with addition of some hops and pepper. As far as pumpkin ales go, not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a dark and murky amber. Has a malt and cinnamon aroma. Heavy and thick body with tastes of malts and cinnamon. Nothing special for a pumpkin beer.

Transfer from BA review on 10-12-13- Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – The beer is served a deep copper orange color with a tiny just off white head. The head fades almost instantly leaving almost no lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is quite light overall. It consists of smells of a roasted pumpkin with notes of pie spices (cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice) mixed within. Along with these aromas there are some smells of a caramel nature as well as a tiny amount of a bready smell with all the aromas producing a light pumpkin pie smell. Taste – The taste begins with a lighter roasted pumpkin taste with notes of cinnamon and nutmeg upfront. From the start, the taste has a decent level of brown sugar and caramel sweetness as well as some light bready tastes. The sweeter flavors begin fading a bit more toward the middle with the taste with the pumpkin becoming slightly stronger and more roasted as the taste moves on. While the roasted flavors increase, so too do the spice flavors with more cinnamon and nutmeg coming to the tongue and a newly tasted clove flavor joining the other spices. In the end the mix of flavors produces a very cinnimony and nutmegy but lightly roasted pumpkin flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of it’s thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the slightly higher side. A slightly thicker body and lower carbonation may have been better for the roasted pumpkin flavors, but with that said, the medium body and higher carbonation did help calm the already big cinnamon and nutmeg flavors, so overall the feel fit the flavor profile alright. Overall – An alright pumpkin beer but a little too spice heavy for the sweet and pumpkin flavors. Ok, but nothing super exceptional.

12oz bottle from Xroads poured a clear medium density orange/amber with an average sized frothy white head. Aroma has some metallic notes about it, wet bread, pie crust, light nutmeg and all-spice. Medium body, average carbonation, creamy finish. Flavor of bad spice, old bread, earthy, bark, hint of cardboard. Meh.

On tap. Color is pale copper orange. Aroma is pumpkin, lots of cinnamon, some spice. Aroma is this beer’s best point. Flavor is some mild cinnamon, spices and otherwise a generic ale after the initial burst of pumpkin-esque flavors. Mouthfeel is eh. Notbing special. If pumpkin beers are not your thing, don’t go for this. If they are, there’s still better pumpkin beers.
