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%

Leighton (10683) - 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.

500ml bottle, thanks to radarsock. October 2012 version. Nice authentic pumpkin and squash aroma up front. Light nutmeg, cinnamon. Awesome, smooth texture, lighter carbonation. Nice dry texture. Hazy orange - amber color. Good thin off-white head, that has good retention. Nice savory and spice taste, little sweet. Good sections of lace. As far as pumpkin beer goes, this beats most of the ales that Iíve tried that are of similar gravity. Well-done.

5000 (6239) - 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.

Pours deep slightly hazed amber into a Sam glass. White head with little retention recedes to mottle surface. Cinnamon, pumpkin and nutmeg aromas. Soft with sweet caramel upfront turning to pumpkin and spice in the dry, medium length finish.

jkwood04 (3849) - 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.

bottle. pours a clear copper with a quickly fading dirty white head. notes of sweet cooked pumpkin pie, toasted pumpkin seeds, caramelized brown sugar, with a toasted nuts and marshmallow. okay, touch too sweet for my liking. hits the sweet pumpkin pie drink character up well enough. fine.

auerbrau (3164) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - OCT 23, 2012
500mL Bottle, purchased at Provisions - Northampton, MA. Aromatics centered on roasted vegetables and baked pumpkin flesh, accented with rendered cinnamon quality. Flavors pick up way too much cinnamon, burying a detectable signal of orange starchiness beneath a sheen of spice. This feels very watery and one note, with the sugar subtleties struggling to rise above the lack of sweetness and the overall thinness. Bummer.

One of the better pumpkin beers out there. Really tasty and crisp with nice spice and pumpkin flavor. The lager body is wonderful and nothing is over done. A subtle easy drinking good beer.
