Punkin' Ale is a full-bodied, spiced brown ale brewed with baked pumpkins, cinnamon, nutmeg, and brown sugar. Dogfish Head Punkin' Ale is named after the annual Punkin' Chunkin Festival held near Lewes, Delaware the weekend after Halloween.

Kudos for making this more than just a novelty beer(not that Dogfish would do that), but its really nice and has something more than just some pumpkin spice thrown in. I couldn’t drink it every day, but certainly one of, if not the best pumpkin beers made.

You must give dogfish a lot of credit for innovative brews. This is another one those. The problem for me is that I don’t like pumpkin pie and this brew tastes like it.

Leave it to the DFH people to remember the most important spice - - the hops. This poured out an orange-brown color with a minimal head. It’s got a very strong pumpkin aroma, chock full of cinnamon and nutmeg. Smells like the "allspice" my Mom sometimes used when baking. Full-bodied and full of spicy flavors, this is a fun brew to drink. And just when you think you’re done, you get a smack of bitter hops in the finish. This is the best pumpkin drink out there.

Poured a clear orange with a white head. Smells very spicy, with traces of cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg... basically exactly like what’s inscribed on the bottle. Taste has a pumpkin and spicy sweetness but with a hop kick that keeps it from being too sweet. Very nice, and a wonderful addition to my halloween dinner.

Pours a pretty clear copper color with a consistent white head. Smells like butt. Very heavily spiced. Taste is a bit more mild than the flavor. I wouldn’t buy this again.

Red color with no head. Aroma of cloves. Slight pumpkin taste, but just enough to poke out from the cloves and nutmeg. It tastes a little like a very ripe pumpkin might. Quite a tasty pumpkin ale.

Bottle. Very spicey aroma. Clove and allspice stand out. Little notes of malt and pumpkin are also present. Sharp spices in taste. Pumpkin is overpowered with the spice. Fair pumpkin ale.

Clear and deep orange; kind of amber at the top and gold toward the bottom of a tapered glass. Sweet and spicy nose. Rich mouthfeel. Aromatic notes of pumpkin and cinnamon. Maybe even a little allspice as well. Some bitterness in the finish. Nicely balanced. Pumpkin notes are not too overdone, but the beer does have a sticky sweetness that tends to linger. Well made. (Oh, and it’s bottled now if it wasn’t before ... just got a 12-oz bottle here in Colo.)

The amber color is damn near orange making it the perfect color for a pumpkin beer. A light nose of nutmeg. The predominant flavor is allspice. Much more alcohol taste than I would have predicted. Good overall, but I think that the Olde Peninsula Pumpkin Ale remains my favorite of the class (too bad it isn’t bottled)

Orange/Brown Coloring. Pumpkin Spice Aroma...Dry Pumpkin Taste and Spices on the Tongue...Aftertaste is a bit Weird, but Otherwise, One of the Better Pumpkin Beers I’ve Had.
