COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named after the Irish legend of the Jack O Lantern. Brewed with Pumpkins and Spices. Subtle spicing to make sure you can enjoy more than 1 pint per session. A drier version of your standard Pumpkin ale, ours is not cloyingly sweet. A nice toasty/biscuity flavor from the American pale ale malt, slight hop bitterness from Northern Brewer and our house yeast blend that leaves slightly fruity esters. Formerly known as Lavery Stingy Jack Pumpkin Ale.

Cloudy golden orange pour with a thin off white head ..... aroma of light pumpkin spices, sweet and toasted malts .... taste is earthy with a toasted malt, caramel malts, pumpkin spices and a bitter hop bite .... definitely has a nice biscuity character to it .... mouthfeel is dry and sweet .... nice balance of body and spice .... finishes bittersweet and spicy .... solid pumpkin brew def better than your average one

ben4321 (4093) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Location: 22 oz bottle from Sparrow, 10/13/13

Aroma: The nose is full of pumpkin pie spice, dough, cinnamon, clove, yeast, and a little caramel
Appearance: It pours a clear reddish-orange color with a small beige head and minimal lace
Flavor: It is not quite as good as the nose, full of pumpkin and spice flavors, and yeast notes
Palate: This one has a nice mouthfeel, soft carbonation, and smooth, slightly dry finish
Overall Impression: I thought this was a more than solid Pumpkin beer. Clearly this one is on the top side of what they make in my opinion, but maybe that is only because I really like the style. Still, hard to complain about the quality here.

Not my favorite. Aroma is weak. Taste is ok but a little strange. Hazy brown. Soft finish.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5077) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 11, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2014 Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a murky brown color with a small foamy dark tan head that faded quickly and left minimal lacing. The aroma was sweet nutmeg, clove and cinnamon. The flavor was bitter with a bit of vinegar, moderate notes of nutmeg, clove and cinnamon and was lacing a malt base to subdue the spice. Medium dry spice finish. Undercarbonated, Disappointing.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Bottle: † Dark caramel, very thick and dirty, soft spritzy off-white head, little lacing. † Strong nose of brown sugar, followed by clove, nutmeg, cinnamon, and subtle allspice. † The aroma reminds me of a pumpkin candle I once bought, lots of brown sugar in the aroma. † Somewhat of an earthy start, sweet, brown sugar, with softer spices than most others. † Falls a bit flat on the tongue, with a lighter body and mouthfeel that I would have liked. † Finishes with a slight herbal, earthy, vegetable like spicing. † Not as bright as the nose suggested, and even then that wasnít too bright. † Decent, albeit a different kind of Pumpkin Ale. † Lots of Brown sugar and earthy spice notes.

PGHbeer77 (571) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 24, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2013 12 oz. draft at Sharp Edge with Bill 2012. Big head over a bronze cloudy pour, not much of a scent, just some spice and and a touch of sweetness, with a medium bodied, silky texture. Dry pumpkin veggie more than sweet pie flavor. A nice autumn day drinker instead of a dessert like some other pumpkin ales.
