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!"

jgb9348 (5555) - 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 (12688) - 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.

12 oz bottle. I usually shy away from pumpkin beers, but this was offered at a party so I couldn’t resist. First and foremost, this is a quality ale with a pleasant hop/malt mix that pours a clear, amber color. Its medium body is fortified with spice and pumpkin flavors, but nothing too overdone. This beer is a rarity among pumpkin beers; one that is possible to enjoy if you want more than one.

Bottle from Ernesto987. Bronze in color with a small, tightly packed white head. Light pumpkin aroma with some clove showing up. Maybe some red apple in there too. Flavor is pumpkin with some spice showing up in the finish. Slight burn from the clove spice, but really it doesn’t add a whole lot to the flavor of this beer. Maybe a touch thin on the palate. I like my pumpkin beers to be aggressively spiced, and this is nothing like that.

obguthr (5483) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - OCT 2, 2011
Coffee, pumpkin, kibble, and clove nose. Odd. Cloudy copper, medium yellow head, good lacing. Coffee and kibble flavor. Quite grainy, with a healthy amount of ceereal. The coffee notes are weird and I’ve never found them in a pumpkin ale before. There are some pumpkin notes, but this beer is all about kibble. Low spice, low pumpkin for the style. Not a bad beer though.

HeistAlmighty (1156) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - SEP 24, 2011
355ml bottle. Aroma is sweet and spicy, with some floral notes. Pumpkin and apple nose. Nice appearance, clear amber orange colour, medium head the shade of pie crust, good lacing. Taste is pie crust, pumpkin, with a light bitterness and medium fruit. Lighter body, moderate carbonation. Overall, not bad, but the fruitiness of this was a little off-putting.

PorterPounder (7116) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 23, 2011
Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - 12 oz bottle. Dark copper pour, thin,bit long lasting sticky white head that sticks around a while. Aroma has a hint of sweet spiciness - pumpkin pie spice of course comes to mind. Flavor has a spicy bent to it, some cinnamon, a hint of vanilla, some overripe vegetable funkiness. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Decent.

12oz bottle poured into snifter. After cracking the top on this the aroma was super sweet and reminded me a lot of the first time I consumed Dogfish Punkin, so it seemed very promising. The flavor was rather quite bitter with a hoppy presence to it. Slight pumpkin flavor on the back end with a touch of cinnamon/nutmeg. Overall not too shabby.
