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!"

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.

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.

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.

Bottle thanks to westcoastbeerlvr on BA. Pours a great bright clear orangish amber red color with a lasting one inger plus white head. The aroma is pumpkin and spice, surprise surprise, with maybe even a slight bretty note alhough itís subtle, with sweet malt. The flavor has sweet caramel malt, well balanced pumpkin and nutmeg and cardamom, and a dry finish. Medium body with fairly lively carbonation. Pretty solid pumpkin ale overall, good for Cisco from what Iíve had.

auerbrau (3182) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - NOV 7, 2010
22oz Bottle. Nice mint and lightly aromatic pumpkin spice. Obviously with a bit of hop leaf right out front. Pours a very clear even orange, with a whitish head. Flavors are very nice. Fresh pumpkin pie with restrained spices and complimenting minty hop flavors. Earthy and starchy pumpkin is a little buried, but the spices hold back enough to allow malts to come through. Well built. Just shy an ethereal character that would it into the other world category (a la Selinís Grove).

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 30, 2010
Picked this one up at Gordonís. 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 Iíve 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)

Pours gold into a shaker. Bright white head recedes to skim surface. Pumpkin and nutmeg aromas. Thin- to medium-bodied with spiced pumpkin bread upfront turning to toasted hops in the lasting bitter finish.

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
