COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This American Spiced Ale is reminiscent of your favorite autumn dessert: pumpkin pie. The nutmeg, ginger and cinnamon that create this beer's delicious aroma are balanced against the malts and pumpkin in this recipe to give this spicy treat its charming flavor profile. Lil’s Grumpkin Pumpkin is only available while supplies last.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2006 Light orange color, little head, not terribly cloudy. Aroma has lots of spice and a touch of malt. This is another heavily spiced pumpkin that concentrates more on spicing than it does on the rest of the beer. Has more body and slightly more malt profile than Buffalo Bills pumpkin, but still, the spicing makes for a dry almost astringent flavor, while there is little else to taste here than the spice.

This beer deserves every bit of its "10" aroma rating. But, then again, I am a sucker for all those pumpkin pie spices - ginger, clove, etc.. Some hints of malt, and surprisingly, alcohol. Smells warm like grandma’s kitchen. Dark orange color that holds the light well. First sip ... plenty of body behind those spices, a little heavier with the hops than anticipated. This beer started out phenomenally. But, it got a little dry towards the end. Still a great beer for this time a year.
