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 from Whole Foods Bowery. Dark amber decent head. Nice pumpkin and spice aroma. Solid toasty sweet malt foundation with mild hops. taste lacks some of the spice and pumpkin found in the aroma. Medium body. I wanted more pumkimn spice and creaminess in body.

Draft at Shortys in New York. Amber with hardly any head. Tastes like pumkin pie. I can't tell the difference between these pumpkin ales

Jabic (431) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Ar: Sweet, toasted malt - pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg and cinnamon stand out. Ap: Orange, slightly hazy - small white head with low retention, leaves a thin ring and almost no covering of foam. T: Malty-sweet up front with caramel and toasted notes - some light sweetness - cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove - low bitterness - mildly numbing spice lingers on the finish with malty backbone. P: Medium body with high carbonation - finish is dry. Solid, sessionable pumpkin beer - nothing extraordinary or special about this example, but it is well-made and tasty.

Bottle. Nose is earthy natural pumpkin with some spice, touch of whipped cream on top. Hazy amber-copper body with slow carbonation and a sudsy beige head. Taste is relatively dry, medium-full body that’s nicely malty with some actual malt depth, spices are light and the natural pumpkin is actually allowed to come through. Crisp and refreshing, there’s a little bit of harshness in the finish, but otherwise clean. Low bitterness but enough to strike a good balance. Seems like a simple recipe with simple results, but I know how hard these are to pull off, especially considering almost no one does, but this seems like the most natural, organic thing. One of the best you’ll find out there!

KyotoLefty (6503) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 28, 2014
Bottle from Wegmans. Spicy nose-cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin. Orange-amber color with a fine head. Creamy, spicy pumpkin flavor, some caramel, bitter spice finish. Not all that good.

Cinnamon is noticeable on the aroma with some bread notes. Appearance is gold with an off white head with good retention. Flavor has light bready malt flavors with mild spice notes. Cinnamon provides a little heat and lasts into the aftertaste. Body is medium-light with medium-high carbonation. Overall, the beer is light with a lingering cinnamon character that lasts long into the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Bottle:   Comes across as an amber ale that is very lightly spiced.   Has a bit more soft orange peel than spices.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Lackluster finish, not much there, faint spices but moreso just a soft malty beer.   Its very pedestrian, and really lacking in spices.   Just overall too soft.

keanex (1458) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - APR 16, 2014
On tap at The Ale House.
Appearance: Light hazy copper body with a creamy tan head.
Aroma: Mild aroma with hints of cinnamon and pumpkin. Has the aroma of gutting a pumpkin.
Taste: Pumpkin with mild spices. Very bland.
Palate: Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.
Overall: Another mediocre pumpkin beer. The world definitely doesn’t need another.
