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!"

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.

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 I’ve had.

crazyvin (1911) - 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.

hopscotch (8907) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 31, 2012
Draft... Clear amber ale with a mid-sized, frothy, white head. Great retention. Smells like pumpkin pie spices – plain and simple. Medium to full-bodied and oily with stinging carbonation. The flavor provides a nice balance of sweet, gooey malts and juicy, fresh, savory hops. Finishes crisp and very clean with a kiss of mild, lingering bitterness.

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.

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

dogfish120love (926) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 8, 2009
huge Pumpkin, nutmeg, and alspice aroma with hints of coriander. Definitely one of the best pumpkin beers in terms of aromatics. Amazing pumpkin flavor with hints of cinnamon. Pours a dark orange with a creamy head

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.

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.

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.
