COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A huge malt bill gives this fall seasonal beer its unique canvas. 60 pounds of locally hand picked pumpkin are roasted and glazed with brown sugar and honey in our pubs pizza oven. The pumpkin flesh (no skin, it adds an astringent bitterness) is added to the mash melding with the already complex grist. American hop varieties provide a formidable bitterness and some great flavor and aroma. At the end of the boil the wort is spiced with ginger, coriander, cinnamon, all spice, nutmeg, and more brown sugar help sculpt this pumpkin beer. After the fermentation the beer spends a little over a week on vanilla beans and cinnamon sticks!

On tap at the brewery. Appearance is a copper with a beige head. Aroma is pumpkin with spicy notes of coriander, cardamom, and cinnamon. A lot like a pumpkin pie beer. Taste is one that I enjoy, seeing as I enjoy pumpkin pie. Medium bodied. Too bad this one will only be available for a short amount of time.

Sampled at Jackie Os Experimental Beer Fest on 11/6/10. Pours a clear amber/copper with a medium tan head. Aroma is cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and allspice. Cinnamon flavor up front with some sweet malt, nutmeg and allspice before a dry ginger finish. Not short on the spices. My kind of pumpkin ale.

Had on tap at Jackie Os Anniversary Party. Man, was this a surprise. Not a fan of the pumpkin beers. This one was REALLY good. Flavor of vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon and pumpkin. Nicely blended. Easy to drink.

16oz draft, @ Halloween 2008 beer garden, pours a deep dark amber with tiny head, taste is very lager like with little taste outside of the traditional taste, then the pumpkin hits you.... not bad at all, glad to see Jackie-O’s selling this reasonalbly
