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!"

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.

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.

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 Iíve 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 orange with lacy head. Smells slightly sweet and spicy. Tastes of malt, pumpkin, spices, bit of hops. Spicy, dry, bitter finish. Clean.

Beautiful color, clear garnet. Quite a fan of the spice aroma on this one, allspice, spicy cinnamon, light nutmeg. Flavor follows with some toasted bread, nice sweetness without being cloying, finish is slightly short and lacking. Overall an enjoyable beer with few flaws that I would certainly drink again. Didnít know it was 7%... nice! Some light tea like bitterness.

A lot of pumpkin beers seem to be in an arms race to figure out which can be the most over-the-top, pumpkin pie in a glass out there. Ciscoís effort is a lot more understated, and, to me, better than most. It starts with a solid base beer flavored primarily with pumpkin, with some nice but not overpowering spice in the finish. If youíre looking for a pumpkin beer rather than a dessert, this is worth checking out.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 17, 2008
Aroma is a mix of raw and cooked pumpkin along with nutmeg. Smells a bit like a not yet baked pumpkin pie. Flavor is fairly dry, light pumpkin with hop spiciness slightly augmenting the baking spices. Not bad.

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.

Thanks to bmanning for sharing this bottle last night. Served in a tulip. Pours a hazy caramel color with a thin off-white head without much retention of lacing. The nose brings a bit of caramel and actual pumpkin, though not too much on the spice front, which was nice. The flavor had some nice pumpkin puree character without the heavy spicing behind many in this style. Slightly chewy with a medium body. Pretty good.
