COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
On Nantucket a Pumple named Drumkin, brewed up some great ale with his pumpkins. One and all came to savor the delicious flavor, then wobbled around quite like bumpkins. At Cisco they thought, "The is De-Lish! Let’s make some more because we wish, to please all the tourists, and locals and purists, with the best ale that we can accomplish!"

Perhaps my last pumpkin beer for the year. Color was a deeper orange/brown compared to most pumpkin i had. normal all spice nutmeg and cinnamon but definite roasted pumpkin, malt base giving a deeper and less pie like impression. Ok body to it. over all good compared to most.

32 oz growler fill from Pinocchio’s. Almost clear amber with a clingy, creamy white head. Nose is toffee, nutmeg and allspice; sour hints and musty pumpkin. Taste is brown sugar, roasted pumpkin and same spices. More savory than sweet.

Bottle:   Amber with a copper hue, a bit of haze, thin sudsy white head, sparce lacing.   Interesting earthy nose, a bit of fern root and perhaps a smidgen of all-spice.   Not your traditional pumpkin.   The earthiness and soil just smack you up front, on the tongue and the nose.   Moderately sweet on the backside, soft spices that could possibly be like a pumpkin?   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes with some artiificial sort of sweetener flavor.   Had I drank this blind, I may not have said it was a Pumpkin Ale, just a spiced type of beverage.   Different, more earthy, and spiced differently than most.   I will say its unique, but not one I would likely reach for again.   Thanks Jason for the bottle!

This poured a medium to lighter orange color with an offwhite head. Aroma was of pale and caramel malt, very light pumpkin spices too. Flavor was light pumpkin flesh and spices, not much presence, some caramel malt, and butery diacetyl.

12 ounce thanks to Ernesto987. First pumpkin beer in some time. Spicy. Nutmeg. Pumpkin. About what I expect from the style.

jgb9348 (4490) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Nice slightly hazy bronze tinted copper and amber body with a thin, fast-dying off-white head. Aroma of spices, nutmeg, cinnamon, caramel, malt, toffee and a touch of clove and yeast - very nice and fragrant. Medium-bodied; Dense, heavy mouthful with a lot of spices and a good dose of pumpkin and squash. Some toffee and nuttiness on the back end with a definite show of spice and sweetness. Aftertaste is a bit one-dimensional with the squash and spice flavours (predominately nutmeg) coming through. Overall, a nice pumpkin beer and definitely one of the better ones I’ve had - still not amazing and worth drinking all fall long, but this is a good one and should be sampled if you can find it! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from the Lebanese Taverna Market in Arlington, Virginia on 02-October-2011 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 23-October-2011.

Pours cloudy brownish orange color with off white head. Aromas of cinnamon, nutmeg and graham crackers. Tasted like pumpkin pie with some Robitussin mixed in. Medum body with moderate carbonation. Not one of the better pumpkin beers.

Lubiere (9429) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 20, 2011
A golden amber ale with a thick creamy light mocha head. In aroma, a nice perfumey malt with light pot pourri, ginger and savoury herbs. In mouth, a nice herbal malt with earthy notes, ginger, cloves, all nice and well balanced, light mineral finale. On tap at Meadhall, Oct. 10 2011.

Cute label. Deep copper Orange color. There is sweet malt, spicy hops and and light pumpkin spice in the aroma. Malty with spice like hops followed by just a bit of pumpkin spice. Spicy is the overall take away, and earthy. Medium mouthfeel and semidry finish. Not too bad.
