COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The 2012 harvest on our Mom & Pop’s 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 Anne’s 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%

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 couldn’t drink much of this, but its better than most.

BroSpud (1596) - , 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.

tcane7 (1577) - 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

MaBeer1972 (1246) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 15, 2012
Single bottle from Julio’s. 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 (957) - 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 didn’t overpower the palate and let the base lager shine through.

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!

500 mL bottle purchased from Leary’s 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.

UPDATED: NOV 5, 2012 October 2012 vintage, 500ml into a SA perfect pint. A - Pours a very clear dark brown/red color. One finger off white head settles into a very thin cap and edging. Quick but noticeable lacing. S - Typical pie spices of cinnamon, all spice, nutmeg, and ginger. A vegetal quality on the end that really does hint towards actual pumpkin and squash. T - Pie spices initially. Finish is pumpkin flesh and brown sugar. Very fresh and authentic tasting. Dry finish allows the beer to never seem too sweet or spicy. Mouth feel is crisp and well carbonated. O - A surprising twist on the pumpkin beer in the fact that its a lager. Very clean and easy drinking with a pleasant and authentic pumpkin/spice flavor. Probably the most approachable and balanced pumpkin beer I’ve tried.

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.
