COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Country Pumpkin is our medium-bodied harvest ale brewed with a medley of flavorful malt, pumpkin puree, Magnum hops and a touch of seasonal spices.The masterful blend of 2-Row, Vienna, Munich, Caramunich and Honey malt with Magnum hops balances the sweet pumpkin with an aroma of nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger and allspice to create a rich, malty ale for the autumn season.

Bottle. Pours a mostly clear ruby tinged amber with a medium sized white head. Lots of spices on the nose, a light hint of pumpkin. Medium bodied, a bit sweet, bitter spices. Burnt toast, a good amount of bitter spices. Meh.

Draft. Pours amber orange with a thin off white head. Light nutmeg, sweet malts, and pumpkin sweetness. Relatively restrained in the spice department, with low bitterness throughout. Pretty good.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 8, 2013
Bottle:   Reddish side of amber, faint haze, small sudsy white head, little lacing.   Spicy nose, cinnamon, nutmeg, lots of allspice.   Similar tongue, just the right amount of spiciness IMO.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Clean finish, lingering spices.   This is a nice straight forward example of the style!

blankboy (6263) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 28, 2013
[Bottle (355ml).] Pours a hazy, very bubbly orange-copper with a small diminishing fizzy white head. Aroma of pumpkin pie spices and malt along with a hint of pumpkin and that’s pretty much it. Slightly watery flavour of spices, pumpkin, caramel malt and a moderate spicy finish. Light to average bodied. A decent Pumpkin Ale.

Draft at liberty hound, dirty copper pour. Nutmeg, cinnamon & allspice filled aroma. Similar flavor with a slight off tasting finish. Sweet. Ok

Draft at Dutch’s. Pours a slightly hazy orange amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have a decent pumpkin character, spices that grow with warming, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice with a splash of caramel. The body is a touch thin, but generally this is ok for a pumpkin beer.

nimbleprop (5183) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 18, 2014
12oz bottle pours a slightly hazy, burnt orange with a ring of sticky, slightly off white head. Nose is what you’d expect, cinnamon, nutmeg, some brown sugar, some white pepper, some roasted squash, a little candy. Flavor follows right along, canned pumpkin puree, cinnamon, brown sugar, ginger, all spice. Spicy finish. What you’d expect.

kramer (5089) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Tap. Pours a clear orangish gold body with a small fizzy white head. Big spice and pumpkin nose with lots of cinnamon and nutmeg, some decent pumpkin meat. The flavor is pretty well balanced, not over spiced, not overly sweet. Nice meaty flavor up front, finishes a bit heavy on the cinnamon though perhaps. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and almost creamy with soft fizzy carbonation. Pretty nice Pumpkin Ale, they didn’t overdo it on the spice.

EithCubes (5086) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 28, 2013
Bottle. Nose is sweet malt with mild pumpkin and spice overload - nutmeg, allspice, lesser cinnamon and ginger. Pours a neon and lightly hazy orange with short beige head. Crisp fullish body is relatively dry, some sweetish malt but not a ton of it, relatively thin flavor profile with suppressed hops and thankfully restrained spice additions (which seem to mostly have impacted the nose), though those spices are as clear as day. Pumpkin comes out more with volume and contemplation, smidgen of vanilla, trace of gummy yeast slurry along with pleasant mild clover honey. I learned to appreciate this more by the time I reached the bottom of the glass -- it’s about par for the course as far as these things go, but fresh and even spot-hitting.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5078) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 9, 2013
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a murky orange-caramel color with a trace white head that faded instantly and left no lacing. The aroma was sweet cinnamon sugar, nutmeg and a hint of toasted caramel. The flavor was sweet caramel, bread, cinnamon and nutmeg. Long sweet caramel, cinnamon and nutmeg finish. Moderately full bodied though a bit undercarbonated. Ok.
