COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Patterson Pumpkin is a deceptively smooth Imperial Pumpkin Ale. This seasonal "feast" begins with a grain menu comprised of 2-Row Pale, Dark Munich, Red Wheat, and Carapils malts joined with Pumpkin in the mash. Sterling, Willamette, and Crystal hops are added to the boil to balance the malt sweetness. Finally, for the delectable pumpkin pie taste and aroma, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and brown sugar are added; creating a rich, full-bodied, Fall drinking experience you’ll want to revisit again and again.

12oz bottle. Poured a dark orange color with a small foamy white head. Aroma was serious pumpkin pie notes, brown sugar. Alcohol is noticeable. Flavor was notes of pumpkin gourd, pumpkin pie spices. A touch boozy on the finish.

Pours a nice orange amber color with a bubbly head that leaves some lacing. The aroma is really like a deeply roasted squash or pumpkin with cinnamon and brown sugar in the background. The taste is well balanced with cinnamon and ginger being the dominant flavors. Nice but slightly rough finish. Overall a pretty good pumping beer that utilizes real pumkins!

nimbleprop (5183) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 8, 2014
12oz bottle pours a hazy burnt orange with a ring of lightly soapy, white head. Nose has a fair amount of fall spices, ginger, all spice, cinnamon, brown sugar, some crackery notes, malt, bread crust, some root veg, a little ginger beer. Flavor has a big punchy ginger notes, some peppercorn too, all spice, some hop notes I didn’t quite expect, orange and soap, the malt backbone isn’t as heavy as I thought. A bit boozy though. Hot, peppery finish. Could probably go a few months in the bottle to mellow.

GenDV138 (1768) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - SEP 3, 2014
12 oz bottle poured into a tulip. Hazy golden orange with two fingers of off-white head. Nice webby lacing. Aromas of pumpkin, cinnamon, herbs and spices, brown sugar and vanilla. Tastes of pumpkin, lots of spices, some cinnamon, vegetal notes, bitter notes, some booze. Medium body with a dry finish. Medium carbonation. Smells better than it tastes.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Bottle:   Somewhat of an orange cinnamon stick sorta of spiciness.   Its a little like orange zinger.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Hides the 9% well.   Has a little potpourri in there too.   Could use a little more sweetness on the finsh.   Otherwise its decent.   Pumpkin like spices could be brighter too.   Potpourri finish.

bigguns22 (709) - Maryland, USA - FEB 7, 2014
No one of the better beers of this style but not bad. A cloudy dark amber color with a small off white head. Aroma is mostly spices but pleasant. To much bitterness and spices are heavy. Needs more pumpkin and vanilla to balance it and lighten the alcohol notes but still pretty good beer.

Bottle at Dempsey's in Baltimore. Pours a hazy amber with no head. Aroma is pumpkins and slight cinnamon. Flavor is bitter with lots of pumpkin spice. Alcohol is prominent. A bit too much. Overall a balanced and nice pumpkin ale.

GMCC2181 (1515) - Newark, Delaware, USA - NOV 19, 2013
Bottle via StateLine.. Dark orange in color, small head. Nose of some vegetable notes, pumpkin, spices, malty. Flavor is pumpkin, sweet malts, spices, and brown sugar. Little heavy on the spices but still good. Maybe some spicey rye notes? Medium body, quaffable... for being such a high alcohol content brew, they did a good hiding it. Overall. Good brew
