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.

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

FROTHINGSLOSH (4895) - 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.

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.

12oz bottle purchased at Crafted Drafts. Clear orange pour with a medium off-white head. Aroma of ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar and malt. Malty flavor with cinnamon and ginger before a spicy finish.

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.

jgb9348 (4690) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - NOV 5, 2012
Slightly hazy copper coloured body with a light orange glow and a nice, two centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of squash, yeast, bread, allspice, a hint of tea and a small amount of ginger. Medium-bodied; Assertive pumpkin/squash notes up front with a strong earthy/malty note and a hint of toffee and caramel. Aftertaste shows slightly more spices than noticeable up front, but not much coming through - only a tiny bit of squash and allspice - nothing else of note. Overall, a decent pumpkin beer, but I was expecting much more complexity and easily some more depth. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Wegman’s in Malvern, Pennsylvania on 22-September-2012 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 05-November-2012, on election eve in the USA.

This one poured a lighter orange colorw ith an off white head. Aroma was of light pumpkin spies, mainly ginger, and light clove. Flavor was ginger clove, cinnamon and light toast. Nothing offensive, but not good.

Thought I had this before. On tap at the Bocktown monaca, nice place you got there monacatootha! Smells like pumpkin spice. Looks like pale lager. Thin head. Some cinnamon on the taste. Not much punky in there really. Bitter slight medicinal finish.

dmac (3983) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - SEP 30, 2012
12 oz bottle from Canal’s Hainesport. Poured a very hazy/muddy orange/amber with a smaller bright white foamy head. Aroma starts off great with lots of spice and pumpkin, very pie like, followed by some hop cones and grainy toast. Fuller bodied with stronger carbonation and a rather quick fading taste yet some carbonation remains on the back of your tongue. Flavor isn’t as bold as the aroma with notes of dry spices, cinnamon and vanilla along with pumpkin and dry toast. Pretty good stuff.
