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. 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.

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.

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.

My first pumpkin beer of the season so I can’t start complaining yet. And this one’s actually decent with nice integration of clove, ginger and gourd. Pours orange with a little head and lacing. Average carbonation. Finishes slightly sweet from malt and spice. Tap at brewpub.

Patrickctenchi (4506) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - SEP 23, 2014
Bottle: Slightly hazy, amber, with a short, beige head. Cola, pumpkin, crust aroma. Taste is flaky pie crust, pumpkin, nutmeg. Rich, sweet, caramel malt. Easygoing, but tasty............ better than expected.

12 ounce thanks to Ed. Amber. Lots of nutmeg and cinnamon. Very much a pumpkin beer. Bit of brown sugar carries taste to the end.

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.

ben4321 (4433) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 23, 2012
Location: 12 oz bottle from Half Time, 10/23/12

Aroma: The nose has some nutmeg, pumpkin, clove, allspice, toast, and a little bit of hop
Appearance: It pours a caramel-orange color with a small beige head and light lace
Flavor: The taste is a little bit sweet, has a medium spice component, and a light bitterness
Palate: The body is light-medium, it feels a little bit tingly, and drinks pretty nicely
Overall Impression: Nice job here by I thought that this was a really solid pumpkin/spice beer. It may not be an absolutely top of style example, but it works pretty well.
