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.

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.

Bottle. Pours a clear dark copper to amber body with a one finger fizzy off-white head. The nose is super spicy with lots of cinnamon and nutmeg, but there’s a decent pumpkin meat note in there as well. Some sweet caramel and brown sugar notes. The flavor is quite sweet up front with lots of dark caramel and brown sugar. The spices emerge on the finish with a quite spicy cinnamon and nutmeg back end. Medium bodied and a bit clingy from all the residual sugars. The cinnamon gets a bit tiring by about mid bottle, it actually starts to develop a bit of heat. Meh, about par for the course for Pumpkin Ales, which is to say, not especially worth a second look.

Very nice but a little watery as most beers from this one. Like it and the aroma was very pumpkin alike.

Good orange pour w/ a white head that leaves lacing. The aroma seems to be dominated by the nutmeg. The taste is pretty spicy upfront & then finishes rather clean. It has a really nice creamy mouthfeel which is probably the best thing going w/ this beer. Not bad overall!

Smells if nutmeg predominantly. Maybe some cinnamon as well. Slight roasted malt aroma. Enjoyable aroma. Taste is mostly nutmeg dominated pumpkin flavor. But doesn't seem fake. Good flavor. Watery on the palate though. Enjoyable pumpkin. Close to post road, maybe a bit better but not sure. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A good pumpkin ale. The pumpkin and spice are kept subtle and balanced. While many pumpkin ales overdo the flavor this one could have added a tad more.
