COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This crisp, dry ale uses cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger brewed with real pumpkin and a blend of North American and British malts to give Momís pumpkin pie some serious competition. A fall favorite skillfully brewed by Foothills.

Clean copper gold pour with one finger of off white head. Spicy nose with a nice biscuity/toasted grain character. Grainy and lightly herbal in the flavor with some spice coming through for sure.

Maybe a bad pour/batch. But not a superstrong pumpkin ale. The elements were there, but just was not balanced well. Too much cinnamon too, and flat taste. Iíll pass over for better pumpkin options.

Deep cloudy layered orange yellow red brown with a thin spitty fizzy white head. Nose is light skunk water, heavy spice, no pumpkin. Flavor is more o the same-lots of cinnamon and nutmeg. No gracias.

Bottle. Orange-amber with a short, foamy white head. Aroma is soft cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and light pumpkin pie. Taste is strong clove, cinnamon notes, ginger and nutmeg with hints of pumpkin pie. Body is medium with a soft, bubbly carbonation. Finishes with more clove, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and light pumpkin pie.

Date: September 02, 2012
Mode: Draft
Source: Foothills, Winston-Salem
Appearance: clear copper, fine beige head
Aroma: big pumpkin spice aroma, lots of cinnamon and nutmeg but not too much of either
Flavor: sweet caramel malt flavor, plenty of cinnamon but tempered by the sweetness, hint of pumpkin, other spices round it out
Overall: a lot bigger and more assertive on the spices than the original, now it just needs more pumpkin

At the brewpub for $3 pints, and started out with this one. My first (and probably only) Pumpkin Ale of the season. Came out a deep dark orange, with a nice frothy cap. The nose is sweet with pumkin spice, nutmeg, cinnamon - not surprising. Slick feel. Sweet pumpkin, that isnít as artificial-tasting as I remember. The pumpkin is also a little more subtle, but in its place there is an overwhelming spice profile, that isnít all that refreshing. All-in-all though, itís not a bad autumn drink, but I couldnít see myself having any more than 1 of these at a time, or even more than 1 in a season for that matter.

12 ounce bottle from Beer Run. Pours a clear copper color with a medium sized fizzy tan head. Average head retention. Aroma of vibrant spices including ginger, some citrus, pumpkin and a mild glue note. The taste is earth, pumpkin, cinnamon, ginger, doughy malts and a tart finish. Medium bodied. Nice beer.
