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%

auerbrau (3178) - 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.

johnnnniee (2459) - 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.

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.

Jow (2264) - New York, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Tap at World of Beers at the cross gates mall prior to a movie. Pours orange with nice head and fine lacing. Nose is nice fresh pumpkin squash and hints of spicing. The spices are light of nutmeg and cinnamon and plenty of squash Flavors. Drying with some earthy bitterness. Everything is subdued and very drinkable lager. The fact you can drink this in a mall is awesome.

BroSpud (1741) - , Massachusetts, USA - OCT 21, 2012
Bottle from Julios. Pours a pumpkinish orange with very little head. Very subtle spice and pumpkin flavors which makes this better than most of the other ones out there in this category than tend to be overly spicy or have artificial pumpkin flavoring.

jmikolich (1477) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - OCT 9, 2014
Tap at RTFB a nice subtle amount of spice keeps this lively when drinking it, I would never call it intense though, decent pumpkin flavor and cinnamon obviously. good for a lager I suppose

MaBeer1972 (1368) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 15, 2012
Single bottle from Julioís. A clear medium orange color. Thin head, but good carbonation. Aromas of earthy roasted pumpkin and light spice. Flavor is on the dry side, spice is in check. Bitterness on the backside. An interesting take on a pumpkin beer.

Beerathon (1285) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 2, 2014
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.

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.
