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!"

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.

Flowery and spicy aroma. Cloudy dark orange color with whispy sediment and a small white head. Mild sweet beginning with a moderate spicy finish. Similar to a milder punkin.

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.

12 oz bottle. I usually shy away from pumpkin beers, but this was offered at a party so I couldnít 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.

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 ounce thanks to Ernesto987. First pumpkin beer in some time. Spicy. Nutmeg. Pumpkin. About what I expect from the style.

Pours an opaque amber/caramel color with a thin tan head. Subdued aroma has light toasty malt and hints of cinnamon and clove. Flavor is more hoppy than most pumpkins...spicy...roasty malt with some pie crust and cinnamon. Mouthfeel is light and lively and the finish is hoppy with cinnamon and very dry. Too hoppy for a pumpkin beer IMHO.

22 oz. bottle purchased at Shawís Supermarket at Copley Square, Boston. Pours a very hazy amber orange with a thin-moderate tan head that was gone by the second sip and left very little lace. Pleasant aroma of malt, pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg. The flavor is similar with the same malt, pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg, with a bit more nutmeg in the flavor than typical spice mixtures. Probably my last pumpkin ale for the season.

2012 bottle poured into pint glass. Light brown color with a 1" white head. Nose is spicy, hoppy, not much in the way of pumpkins. A good autumn beer. Dry with a slightly bitter finish.
