COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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

From a growler given to me by a co-worker who recently visited his hometown in NY. Pours an attractive, clear deep amber with a manilla head. Pleasant medium-intensity aroma of nutmeg and a little cinnamon. Very drinkable but with a full/bold flavor. Nice toasty caramel malt base with just the right level of sweetness. Next are notes of pumpkin pie; cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and a tinge of vanilla. Has a small presence of herbal noble hops for balance. Medium bodied with a smooth texture and moderate carbonation. Remarkably drinkable. Itís nothing you havenít had before but itís so well-done and tasty.

A golden amber ale with a thin white head. In aroma, a nice pumpkin spice with sweet caramel malt. In mouth, a nice crisp malt with smooth pumpkin spices notes, not cloying, a bit oily, quaffable. Cask at Syracuse Real Ale Festival, Oct. 23 2009.

Syracuse Real Ale Festival. Medium orange colour, average mouthfeel. Interesting carbonation with nice, understated spices.

Growler filled at the brewery and consumed the next day. Pours a clear orange amber with a moderate linen white head that faded by the second sip and left scant lace. Pleasant aroma of malt, pumpkin, cinnamon and allspice. The flavor is malt, pumpkin, cinnamon and allspice and noticeably absent of any brown sugar. This is not a sweet beer, and is fact, more on the dry side. Mild-moderate bitterness at the finish. Very easy to drink. Well crafted.

(Draught) Amber and hazy. Medium sized white head. Spices and cranberry in aroma. Medium bodied and dryish palate with medium carbonation. Malts, molasses, spices, bitterness and lightly sea water in taste. Malty and bitter aftertaste. Again a decent pumpkin spice beer.

Draft. Poured coppery bronze. Smells like another pumpkin ale. Not a particularly good one, had all the elements but it didntí mesh.

Half (thank goodness) growler from Decicco. Copper with lasting head and lace. Strong clove nutmeg pumpkin spice aroma. Pumpkin sweet caramel brown sugar with bitter gritty spicy nutmeg finish. Undrinkable. Why did I throw away seven bucks? Mouthwash please.

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2011 On tap at rattle n hum. Semi sweet pumpkin with nutmeg and cinnamon. Nice and above average. Pumking still owns.
