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!"

Picked this one up at Gordon’s. Pours a deep, clear copper with a thick creamy beige head that lingered just a little and left some spots of foam on the sides while settling in as a thin collar. The aroma is, not surprisingly, heavy on the spices with lots of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and pie spices in general. There is some sweet pumpkin and sugary malts as well. The taste starts out with the initial pumpkin spice kick, heavy on the nutmeg this time with cinnamon in the background. The malts form a solid backbone and the finish is spicy and sweet all in one. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with lots of carbonation and spicy and dry on the palate. This is a very good pumpkin beer and one of the best ones I’ve had this season. Highly recommended.

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2011 A deep amber brew with that characteristic Cisco yeast in suspension. Highly spiced aroma. Flavors are well spiced, especially the clove, but the spice also comes from some hops. Sweet malty and pumpkin backbone. Well done. 2011 update: now in 12 oz bottles. This one seems to be very roasty - sort of like roasted pumpkin seeds. I like it! (slight uptick warranted)

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
