COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly Chatoe Rogue Pumpkin Patch Ale.

The newest addition to the Chatoe Rogue series is Pumpkin Patch Ale, a beer made using fresh pumpkins grown in a patch that borders Rogue’s 42 acre hop yard. The pumpkins are picked, loaded into Rogue’s farm truck, driven immediately 77 miles to our brewery in Newport, quickly roasted, and pitched into the brew kettle to create a batch of Pumpkin Patch Ale.

hopscotch (9120) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Bottle... Pours clear and deep orange - much like the bottle - with a small, wispy, white head. Good retention. The nose delivers all the right winter spices and I’m actually picking up a substantial measure of pumpkin meat in here – unfortunately, that’s a rarity for the style. Full-bodied with a buttery mouthfeel and prickly carbonation. The flavor is nicely-balanced, malty and fairly spicy - not overdone or overbearing in any way. No pumpkin component here. Finishes lightly sweet, and then the pumpkin component finally makes another appearance. Better than expected.

DavoleBomb (1467) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Poured into a perfect pint. 3.5 A: Faintly hazed medium amber color. Two fingers of frothy/creamy beige head. Retention is about average and some irregular lacing is left. 3.5 S: Pumpkin has a good strength in the nose. Most pumpkin beers either skimp on the pumpkins or don’t even use them at all. Nice to smell one that does neither. However, the spices are a bit weak on this. Just light cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. Moderate caramel, a light toast, and a enough neutral sweetness to round things out. 3.5 T: Like the nose, there is enough pumpkin, but not enough spice. I want more of all of the spices, but especially the nutmeg. Fairly dry overall with just a light caramel sweetness. Lightly toasty. Easy drinking, but don’t expect this to impress you. 3.5 M: Lighter medium to medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Could use some more creaminess, but it’s not bad overall. 3.5 D: Good pumpkin flavor in this, but nothing else is any better than the ordinary, which seems to be a theme when it comes to pumpkin beers.

wedgie9 (1893) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Tasted on 5/11/13 from a capped, orange 750mL bottle purchased at Sun Devil. Pours hazy dark auburn with an average beige head that slowly recedes to fairly thin lace. The nose is just like a pumpkin pie, with plenty of baking spices, pumpkin, and caramel malt. The flavor is more focused on the baking spices, is very dry up front, with the pumpkin and caramel malt on the back of the palate. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long cardamom and other baking spices finish.

jercraigs (7790) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2013
2013-04-19. Lightly hazy dark amber brown with a large beige head and lace. Sweet malty aroma with good amount of spice character. 7+ Flavour is similar, pleasantly spiced, sweet malt core, sort of sharp bitterness to the spice in the finish. Lingering nutmeg? 7++ Smooth average plus bodied palate. 3++ Pretty tasty, don’t love the spice but it is a pretty solid beer overall. Bottle from LCBO, Toronto

Metalchopz (2263) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - APR 25, 2013
First Chatoe Rogue single orange bottle at the LCBO. Production date: Oct. 4, 2012. Pours a hazy amber colour with an off-white cap, good retention and soapy lacing. Typical good pumpkin ale scent with the spices and amber ale base. Silky, oily mouthfeel. Nicely balanced spices (cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg) with mild roasted malts and some pumpkin purée. Slightly sweet finish with maple notes. A nice companionship between farmers and fermenters. A good "Grow your own" project from Rogues. This is how a fresh pumpkin ale should be, without the fake stuff of most.

Beerdedone (2609) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 20, 2013
Bottle. Pours a dark orange copper color with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and some light spices. Flavor was slightly sweet with pumpkin meat, nutmeg, caramel, cinnamon and had a sweet dry finish

probstblueribbon (2894) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - APR 7, 2013
750 ml bottle from LCBO, cool, tulip. Hazy ruby copper with a thin ran head. Typical warm spices, really nice caramel and bread crust malts, ok. Medium body, relaxed effervescence. A fairly nice blend of warm spices and rich malts; dry with low bitterness and a reasonable spice finish.

junon (411) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - APR 4, 2013
Holy crap. Found my new favourite pumpkin beer. Essence of roasted pumpkin, nutmeg, mace, cloves, and anice. All present. Even the pie crust. Wish the pumpkin was just a tad bit more prevelent.

Bottle from great spirits - pours cloudy red with a white head. Nose has pumpkin and nutmeg. Taste is a nice mild bittersweet balance, finishes dry. Overall, pretty decent pumpkin ale.

DiarmaidBHK (3386) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 17, 2013
Bottle from piggly wiggly homewood. Pours dark orange with an inch of khai foam that disappears quickly and leaves no lacing. Nice pumpkin and spice notes on the nose. Solid pumpkin in the tongue. Finishes clean. Solid!
