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.

This reminds me of all the flavor of blockhouse but not as sweet. I really like it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle - Nice robust flavor to it. Donít taste any pumpkin flavor which is good. Has a dry characteristic to it, some bitterness and only a little sweet. Canít taste much of the other spices mixed with this ale. Still a good all around ale.

Crystal clear beautiful copper/orange color with a finely textured white head. Light pumpkin pie spice aroma with some roasted malt and wood mixed in. Spicy cinnamon and nutmeg come through immediately but not in a heavy-handed way at all. Thereís some brown sugar and vanilla after this that tame the spice perfectly. The carbonation gives this a nice full, creamy feel which seems to hold these flavors together and give them a platform to show themselves while keeping them light and lively. There is a bit of pumpkin gourd flavor buried in all this and itís just enough. I thought being a Dogfish Head beer that this would be all pumpkin flesh and strange spices, but itís not at all. Finishes with caramel sweetness and lasting spices. One of my new favorite pumpkin beers.

Not a huge fan of pumpkin ales. On draft, pours a dark orange. Medium body. Pumpkin flavor, brown sugar, molasses, cinnamon. Its alright.

Smooth taste without overwhelming pumpkin flavor. Very nice beer to enjoy during the fall season. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I'm a bit surprised that pumpkin beers have become so popular, but this beer may be the reason why! A nice, pretty ale, with real pumpkin flavor.

Amber color with minimal white head. Aroma is spiced, maybe allspice. Taste is malty and has hint of pumpkin. Overall not bad but thereís better ales out there.

Pours a clear amber orange color with a thin off white head. The aroma is some pumpkin pie spices, graham cracker and a hint of hop. I taste thin flavors of baked pumpkin, pumpkin pie spices, semisweet malt and maybe a touch of hop. Somewhat watery

Doesnít matter if it smells good when the taste is this bad. Truth be told, most pumpkin beers arenít very good- they are mostly flavors of allspice nutmeg and maybe cinnamon that youíll taste. The challenge is to actually get it to taste like pumpkin. With this title and the 10.00 price for 4 of them. I can only imagine punkin means youíre being punked when you pay for this poor example of a pumpkin ale. Címon dogfish - Iíve had 8-9 of your beers and I thought surely this would be in form with the rest of the beers Iíve had. Theyíre usually good, this one - save your money. Even though last yearís pumking by southern tier was so much better than this years representation - youíll be better off paying for that. Heck even most other poor tasting pumpkin beers like shipyard are better than this.
