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.

Bottle: Pours clear, orange/brass/gold with a minimal soapy head. Nose is pumpkin, nutmeg. Taste is slightly metallic, pumpkin filling. Herbal hop bittering, pumpkin rind. Very natural.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of almost all foam bright white colored bubbles that were and left behind a very softly carbonated transparent yellow orange colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The mild aroma was malty and pumpkin. The mild citrus mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish herbal aftertaste. The ok flavor contained notes of pumpkin mild hops fruity and malt. An OK brew just nothing special.

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

Thanks, Chris! Served in a mug. Pours a clear light golden. Huge head. So much so that we thought it might have been infected, but alas, it’s just overcarbonated. Nose is a spice bomb with lots of cinnamon and backing pumpkin spice. Flavor is similar to apple jacks and way overspiced. Not a fan at all.

Draft pour at the source. Aroma has an interesting anise and spicy profile. No bready crusty profile to balance things out. If I were a bigger fan of anise, I would like this beer better. Oh well. Its an alright beer regardless.

hotstuff (4841) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 12, 2014
Rated on 10-28-2014 (Bottle) This beer pours a huge foamy head that mostly diminishes, hazy golden body, fast rising, very little carbonation, and a good amount of lacing adorns my glass. The aroma is pumpkin, sweet and malt. The flavor is lightly bitter, sweet, pumpkin, and spice. The mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. This beer has a good dose of pumpkin. A bit too much for my liking and I like pumpkin. It also has a light lingering pumpkin aftertaste.

nearbeer (4785) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 6, 2014
Couple of pints on tap. Clear orange with a film of bubbles. Aroma of squash, caramel and some earthy spices. Tastes of the same with some resin, light pepper and wheat toast. Light-medium body is balanced and has smooth, medium carbonation. Like the subtlety of the spices that lets the pumpkin come through.

tap at Ft Wayne OktoBeerfest - Pours slightly hazy yellow-gold with a lingering white head. It has a spicy aroma and a spicy pumpkin flavor. This beer is medium bodied and has moderate hops bitterness. Overall it’s alright.

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.

Bottle. Roasted pumpkin malt and spice aroma. Hazy gold with a huge off-white head, highly active carbonation. It took forever for the head to diminish enough that I could drink the beer. Spiced pumpkin flavor, and light bitter hops finish. Average pumpkin ale that leans a little to the hoppy side.
