Brewed with pureed pumpkins added directly to the mash, and pumpkin pie spices added at the end of the boil, this beer packs a ton of flavor into a malty and smooth amber colored ale. Perfect for when the weather starts to change and ugly sweaters come out of storage.

On tap at Captain Lawrence brewery, Pleasantville, NY. An attractive amber/orange coloured pour with a medium off white head on top. Pumpkin, spice aroma. Tastes of pumpkin, spice, malty. Rather thin and dull compared to other pumpkin beers.

Average beer. Could use much more pumpkin. I haven’t been able to find anything close to Pumking.

Growler fill at Whole Foods Bowery. Pours a medium to dark orange. Notes of nutmeg, clove and allspice are predominant. At first i didn’t fully acknowledge all that this pumpkin ale had to offer, but after i let the growler sit after a few days the carbonation disipated and the aromas and flavors have become more predominant.

Draft at rattle with baron, Andrew, streets, and Brendan. Pours an amber body with thin off white lacing. Aroma is light spice. Mouthfeel is thin and carbonated, tastes like a pumpkin flavored yuengling.

The aroma is pumpkin, brown sugar, spices, ok. The appearance is the standard orange, white head. The flavor is caramel, pumpkin, more spicy. The finish is spices like cinnamon, nutmeg. The body is thin/medium. OK, drinkable, far from the best pumpkin ale.

Tap at Waterfront Ale House: decent spice note, cinnamon and cloves and savory. Bready malts, caramel. Finish is a bit grassy and dry, throwing off the balance. Decent pumpkin ale, though not great.

(Old BA rate - tap) Light, clear, still orange in appearance; slightly off-white thin head. Lightly gingery; touch of malt sweetness; graham crackers; good degree of spiciness. Fresh ginger; holiday spices; not really sweet at all which was nice; drying; pumpkin pie spices shine at the end. Thinner; dry; prickly carbonation. Nice drinking; actually not all that warming and found it to be fairly refreshing, but I couldn’t do this one too much

Growler filled at the SFTO Apple Brandy release and consumed yesterday. Appearance: Classic dark pumpkin body with a 1 finger off white crown that shows some retention and lace. Smell: Really nice balanced mixture of cinnamon, brown sugar, clove, pie spice, etc. Not overwhelming, not imperial, but very nice for a standard pumpkin beer. Taste: Absolutely the same as the nose. Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and just enough carbonation. Drinkability: Quite sessionable. I was pleased with this pumpkin beer. Serving type: growler Reviewed on: 09-24-2009
