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.

Pours a clear dark orange amber with medium foamy offwhite head. Aroma is cloves nutmeg and bit of stale malt. Flavor is pretty light on the palate, sweet malt base, tad bit of dry metallic notes, then a very slight spiced pumpkin finish. Overall I’d say this is a slightly below average pumpkin ale.

Pour is a crystal clear amber with a large white head. Aroma is a decent fall spice with some cinnamon, clove and nutmeg. Flavor is a little weaker than the aroma let on. There still is a nice spice but there is a odd soapy aftertaste. Plenty of spice is left on the tongue. Not as rich as some pumpkin beers but this has a nice spice profile.

A mediocre pumpkin ale. Not particularly spicy but with a solid sweet body. Tried at the Great Nebraska Beerfest with Jess in 2016.

jredmond (7444) - New York, New York, USA - APR 21, 2016
Bottle shamelessly shared at the RLGK tasting, March 2016. Pours a clear amber body with no head, minor lacing. Mouthfeel is thin bodied and spicy, with notes of spicy pumpkin, sweet malts and sugars.

Quick3Beers (940) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 28, 2016
Pours a clear dark amber from a bottle. Aroma is surprisingly banana-y, with typical pumpkin spice and vanilla notes. A little thin with an unpleasant bitterness on the finish. Meh.

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2016
Poured into a pint glass. 3.0 A: Clear light orange color. One and a half fingers of frothy off-white head. Retention is below average and no lacing is left. 2.75 S: Light pumpkin spices with cinnamon and nutmeg most notable. A light hint of caramel accompany mildly bready malts. Pretty mundane overall. 2.25 T: For an unimpressive as the nose is, the taste is more so. It tastes like a half assed pumpkin ale cut with water. Weak spices, weak malts without any strong anchoring flavor, and no hop flavor presence. 2.0 M: Light body. Watery feel. Moderate carbonation. No creaminess to speak of. 2.0 D: Sad excuse of a pumpkin beer. ★ 654 characters DavoleBomb, Nov 30, 2015

12 oz bottle at home. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have roasted pumpkin, sweet malts, caramel, pumpkin pie spices, some crust, a bit thin but nothing bad, nothing really stands out either.

DATE TASTED: November 20, 2015 ... GLASSWARE: Hobgoblin pint... OCCASION: having said goodbye to the boys’ pack leader, I now turn my attention to Shan’s birthday tomorrow... APPEARANCE: odd, burlap-patterned label; extremely lively, with herds of bubbles cascading upwards; an equally handsome amber orange body with clarity; snow white head is two-fingered, thick and creamy--the retention is impressive... AROMA: thick pumpkin mixes with allspice, cinnamon, and sharper scents like cheddar jack.. an astringent, medicinal aroma pushes back and cloys, making the experience varied... PALATE: fluid, soft and warming for 5.5% ABV; drinks like a lager...little aftertaste, and the pace is swift in its sipping--sessionable for a spice/vegetable beer...TASTE: a nice malty pumpkin is the majority of the profile, with a lighter flavor than expected; the spices are mostly aligned, with some astringent fluctuation... OVERALL: as pumpkin beers go, not too shabby--not forgettable, but not unforgettable either...one of the better looking seasonals...

Pours a clear amber color with a creamy white head. Aroma of mostly cinnamon and nutmeg. Sweet flavor with pumpkin and spice background. Decent, but not impressive.

Ok, tried after pumpkin beer finals,so maybe a little underwhelmed only in comparison to some giants. Apple and cinnamon are strong, pumpkin is weak.
