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! Letís make some more because we wish, to please all the tourists, and locals and purists, with the best ale that we can accomplish!"

My first LIF win! Thanks to corey0212 for this one. A- Very foggy, robust pumpkin colored body. Head fades quickly. completely. S- Spices are dominant in the nose. Pumpkins (of course) are behind this with a bit of a biscuty overtone. T-Cinnamon spice and nutmeg upfront and a nice moderate strength pumpkin background. The finish adds a shade of roasted bitterness as the end of the spices come through. P-Medium carbonation and medium-weight body that is quite smooth. O- This is really good pumpkin ale. Has to be up in my top 3 with ST and Weyerbacher. I like my pumpkin ales on the spicy side. It was a great opportunity to try this! Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-16-2008 00:52:57

On tap at the 2009 Great Pumpkin Festival, Cambridge Brewing Company, Cambridge MA on 31 October 2009. Bright, clear copper colour. Some estery candy floss in the aroma. The spicing is not too strong on the palate (good for me). Sweetish. Some tangy hop noticeable but not a huge amount going on. Pleasant enough but this rather highlights one of my issues with pumpkin beers. Iím not a huge fan of the pumpkin spices so too much of that and I donít like it. But, if the spicing is restrained I often find a lack of other elements to sustain the interest. Getting the balance right for my palate is tough. Easy drinking and certainly didnít seem like 7% ABV.

mcox90 (1522) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 18, 2009
22 oz bottle. Pours a dark reddish brown with a 1/2" creamy beige head. Aroma is cinnamon and pumpkin spice. Moderate in body with average carbonation. Flavor is a nice mix of cinnamon and ginger with the pumpkin flavor being there, but in the background. Not overwhelming, like some of the pumpkin brews. One of the better pumpkin brews that Iíve had.
