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!"

12 ounce bottle from Beer Run. Pours a clear copper color with a thin head. Decent head retention. Overly spiced aroma is reminiscent of potpourri. Some pumpkin and herbal notes as well. The taste is pumpkin and the same overly strong spice profile. Earthy, herbal and burnt notes. Medium bodied. Might be good if the spices were toned back.

12oz bottle in a snifter. Pours amber/copper with a lacy, light beige head. Aroma of cereal and caramel malts, light pumpkin but enough so its presence is still there, a decent amount of floral hops, and some spiciness. The pumpkin is not overpowering and is not the main focus of the beer. Average texture. This is a really good pumpkin beer.

Thanks to bmanning for sharing this bottle last night. Served in a tulip. Pours a hazy caramel color with a thin off-white head without much retention of lacing. The nose brings a bit of caramel and actual pumpkin, though not too much on the spice front, which was nice. The flavor had some nice pumpkin puree character without the heavy spicing behind many in this style. Slightly chewy with a medium body. Pretty good.

12 oz. bottle from Total Wine in Chesapeake, VA. Pours orange, not the type of orange that I often use to describe an IPA, but a really distinct dark orange with a foamy off-white head. The aroma is of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and allspice with faint pumpkin in the background. The flavor is good but does seem like it could benefit from a bit more pumpkin flavor. Thankfully the spices are more toned down than I feared from their intensity in the aroma. This is an easy drinker although a bit thin. Overall, this is an above average pumpkin ale that will appeal to most drinkers.

Pretty decent pumpkin beer. Poured an amber/brown color with light head. Aroma of nutmeg, clove, caramel. Taste is spicy and lightly sweet with little bittering.

Light aroma, a little lagery. Flavor on the other hand, very spicy, lots of pumpkin. Pretty awesome, very drinkable.

crazyvin (1963) - New York, USA - SEP 9, 2011
A nice deep amber colored body with a slightly off-white head that had some retention and moderate lace. Aroma had cinnamon and nutmeg upfront along with sweet bread and some carrot cake. Flavor had good balance between spices and sweet malts. Pumpkin was subtle enough to enhance the other flavors. Finish was slightly sweet and smooth.

still not sure what the hell the name means, but it makes me laugh. definitely one of the better pumpkin ales out there, doesnt taste fake or overly sweet like some do, and it doesnt try to literally taste like pumpkins like others do too. this does have some pumpkin-ish taste to it, but its more about the spices that make this a better beer than most. really delicious.

TheBeerGod (5284) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - SEP 2, 2011
Bottle. Bronze-amber with a short, foamy tan head. Aroma is spice (mainly cinnamon and nutmeg), carrot cake, pumpkin and grains. Taste is malt, big grainy notes, light pumpkin, dry carrot cake, cinnamon, light nutmeg and other assorted spices. Body is medium with a light, bubbly carbonation. Dry in spots as well with a light chalkiness. Finishes with more spices, light pumpkin, only hints of carrot cake at this point, malt notes, grains and brown sugar hints.

halfonit (1169) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 26, 2011
Pours a deep amber, dark golden color with a thick white head(which tends to be a trademark from Cisco). Aroma is of sweeter malts, pumpkin, grass, leaves, hops, and nutmeg. Kind of like how fall is in upper New England. Flavor is of malts, dark fruit, very little pumkpin, cinnamon, and hops. Spells much better than it tastes.
