COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ok, so the joke was that Jolly Pumpkin doesn’t brew a pumpkin beer. Well, now we do. Just this one. Packed with real pumpkins, hints of spice, and a gentle kiss of cocoa to liven the soul. An everyday easy way to fill your squashy quotient. Guess now folks will have to find something else to joke about...

Pours a hazy dark amber with a tall, creamy, pillowy and slightly chunky off white head that has excellent retention and leaves excellent lacing, really beautiful beer. Aroma is funky, lightly tart, woody, some light, and sweet earthy notes, pumpkin might not be the first thing to come to mind. Flavor is toast, cereal, light fruity and funky notes up front, followed by nice earthy pumpkin and other sort of darker earthy notes, maybe the yeast, maybe the cocoa, it’s all very subtle, but nice. Light body, creamy entry, neutral to dry, still creamy finish and light, but quite blanketing and lively carbonation. Really good all around, I can’t say that I would have picked out the pumpkin, were it not in the description, but it is delicious nonetheless.

Nocturne (1773) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2016
Keg at Craft Beer Co, Clapham. Murky orange shade with a ring of head. Has a fruity and sour opening before the pumpkin spices come to the fore. Quite a minerally and drying taste. Interesting effort but I prefer your standard malty pumpkin beer.

Alpha10 (594) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 25, 2016
2016/03/25 - Pours a dirty copper-caramel colour with a thick, foamy, off white head that slowly reduces to a lingering film and leaves medium lacing. Aroma is pumpkin, spices, light oaky-vanilla and tart notes. Taste is lots of tart notes, barnyard-earthy funk, salt, pumpkin, spices, wood, and light vanilla. Mouthfeel is medium, with lightly biting carbonation and a long, dry, refreshing finish. Interesting pumpkin ale with just the right amount of pumpkin. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

onceblind (7011) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 19, 2016
Clear copper with a thin white cap. Thin earthy and lightly tangy aroma with light pumpkin. Delightful crisp and light body with a dry sour twang, a light bitterness, neat little pumpkin and something like truffle on the back end. A little juicy and a light sour tone.
