COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When Fall rolls around, so does Jack. Provided he stays away from marauding trick-or-treaters, this bright orange gourd-like squash from the genus curcubita (Thanks Wikipedia!) finds his way into the mash of this Flat12 seasonal pale ale. A special blend of Indian(a) spices and pumpkin shine through just enough to complement this slightly sweet and malty tribute to the season of hayrides and bonfires. Flat out fantastic.

taster @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear medium amber, rim head and tiny dots of lace. Taste is light malt peppered with pumpkin spices. No real bittering at the end; the spices just drift away. Somewhat interesting, but lacks complexity and balance.

Aroma is pumpkin, spices and cinnamon. The flavor is spices, cinnamon, pumpkins, citrus, very mild vegetables and a tart/tangy/bitter finish.

light in color. Thin head. Light bodies with pretty noticeable pumpkin with subtle spice. Compared to other pumpkin beers this falls in the middle for me.

bubblehouse (390) - louisville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Not the best pumpkin. Average aroma and pours a very light brown. Pumpkin taste is suble . Drinkable but not memorable.

Draft pours amber with a off white head. Aroma of malts, spice, pumpkin and grass. Taste is pumpkin, spice and malts.

Some pumpkin, not an overpowering aroma. Taste is pumpkin, grainy vegetable, small amounts of spice. Decent pumpkin beer

Twelve ounce bottle from Whitey’s Wine and Liquor, tasted on October 26, 2013. Nice clear gold/amber color, moderate pumpkin/spice aroma, mostly bitter flavor with rank astringency dominating. Horrible--maybe it was spoiled, This was my first beer from Flat 12 Bierwerks and I’m not exactly dying to try another from there.

Bottle. Gold with a white head. Straight allspice and nutmeg. Spicey and weird.

Exactly everything i hate in a pumpkin beer. Sweet, heavy, and overly spiced. Barely drinkable. Smells OK, I guess.

12 oz. bottle part of my Fall trade with queenholly. Clear yellow pour with lasting fizzy white bottles, well carbonated. Nose is ginger, roasted pumpkin seeds and some odd spice that isn’t the normal. Flavor is ginger, pale malt and lightly bitter floral hop flavor. Secondary flavor of dried leaves. Hard to find the pumpkin in this bottle. Light body with a spritzy carbonation. It’s more like an spiced Golden ale or maybe a spiced lager. Really not what I was expecting but not in a bad way. Different take on the fall seasonal.
