COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The 2012 harvest on our Mom & Popís farm was fruitful and this brew uses 100 fresh pumpkins and 40 organic squash. We prepared, cooked, and pureed all the gourds with the help of our friends at Carrie Anneís Modern Diner. A blend of autumn spices adds to the intense pumpkin flavors. Uses locally grown Triticale from MA. OG 13.5 / IBUs 10 / ABV 5.5%

Pumpking beers are one of my least favorite styles of beer, but this one was done right. The nose reminded me of the holidays and pumpkin pie, while the spices didnít overpower the palate and let the base lager shine through.

50cl bottle pours a hazy copper amber with some thin, white head. Nose is nice, nutmeg, brown sugar, caramelized root, veg, some white pepper, almost a little cardamom. Flavor is earthy, brown sugar, root veg, carrot, parsnip, cinnamon, a little green tea. Clean finish.

Leighton (10419) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2013
Bottle in NH. Pours clear amber with a creamy tan head. The nose has lots of dry wholegrain bread, nutmeg, ripe and leathery pumpkin. Light to medium sweet flavor with nice pumpkin character, toasted bread, cinnamon and nutmeg. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet but balanced to finish with pumpkin muffins, lovely cinnamon and nutmeg, toasty bread. A very well made pumpkin beer. Great pumpkin and and spice integration. Delicious.

icehawk (834) - Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - NOV 27, 2013
Nice pumpkin spice aroma with some vegetative and earthy notes. Medium body, perhaps a bit thin, with decent carbonation. Nice pumpkin spice flavors, but not overly sweet. Tasty!

radarsock (882) - Vermont, USA - NOV 3, 2013
500 mL bottle purchased from Learyís an hour ago for $3.80. Checkout was excruciating, however. Contemplating not going back. To tulip, it pours a rusty sinopia with a creamy Navajo white ringed head barely a fingernail in length. Aromas of pumpkin pie spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger), red kuri squash, lavender, celery seed, graham crackers, peppercorn, and cardboard. Tastes accentuate its maltiness by a 3rd; pumpkin meat and spices detected. Very thin body. Respectable.

jkwood04 (3740) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 1, 2013
500ml bottle in a tulip. Pours dark amber/brown with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of pumpkin, spices, some pale and caramel malts, and a little bitterness. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not bad, but the flavors are a little light and the pumpkin is off in some way.

tcane7 (1651) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy brown with medium, bubbly, diminishing, beige head and soapy lace. Nose of caramel, baked pumpkin, brown sugar, light pumpkin spice. Medium body. Decent

johnnnniee (2141) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 14, 2013
Bottle from Resdstone. Pours a crystal clear orange amber color with a decent sized off white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Aromas mostly of nutmeg and cinnamon with a little bit of brown sugar. The flavor is sweet with a bready brown sugary maltiness. Cinnamon and nutmeg provide the only counter to the sweetness and the malt is winning. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet spiced mouthfeel. Decent enough pumpkin beer, I couldnít drink much of this, but its better than most.

5000 (6178) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Bottle: † Deep amber, hazy, large frothy sandy head, nice lacing. † Nose of nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, and perhaps a hint of clove. † Smooth on the tongue, all the aformentiond spices albeit no clove is coming through. † Simple yet clean. † Body and mouthfeel are moderate. † Starts out slight sweet, but loses it sweetness quickly. † Finishes with subtles spices. † Nice example, would be a bit better had it been a bit sweeter on the backside.

damzz (247) - Massachusetts, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Pours clear orange gold with a thick white head. Aroma is pumpkin spice. Taste is a delightful pumpkin spice with the lightness and crispness of a lager. A nice change form pumpkin ales.
