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.

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.

Pours a hazy deep amber with a medium lt tan head. Aroma has mild seasonal spice. Flavor is spice forward...not much pumpkin or dough/crust here...some earthy bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium/full and silky with a dry finish balanced nicely between spice and earthy bitterness.

This poured a dark orange with a beige head. Aroma was of light roast, pumpkin, and dark fruits. Flavor was bland caramel malt, lacking in distinct spice, but not over the top sweet.

AirForceHops (3115) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 21, 2012
22 oz. bottle purchased @ Beer Heaven. Bottle says 6.5 % ABV. Lager glass shows deep amber with brown hues. Thin off white head, not much lace. Nose is mostly nutmeg and cinnamon. Taste has canned pumpkin near the finish with the other mention spices. Itís light on spice which I like in the style. Body has a creamy texture. This is to my liking for a pumpkin.

jgb9348 (4709) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Deep dark brown coloured body, very hazy with a thick, fast-dying two centimetre tan head. Aroma of squash (tons of it), allspice, canella, cloves and a bit of candied ginger, all with a bunch of malt and alcohol as well. Medium-bodied; Assertive spicey flavour with a noticeable squash bite and a little alcohol and malt on the backend, but most of the flavours are within the first second or two. Aftertaste is mild and only showing a minor amount of the tastes - not much at all to savour. Overall, a pretty substandard pumpkin beer, with perhaps a nicer nose than usual, but the taste and palate disappoint. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Wegmanís in Malvern, Pennsylvania on 22-September-2012 for US$5.99 sampled at home in Washington on 08-October-2012.

Bottle, pours a cloudy brown, clear it was unfiltered, the aroma is spicy and the flavour is interesting, it was a bit creamy and it had some stand pumpkin spice flavours and it almost roasty as well, the beer was under carbinated seemed like we may have had a bad bottle but the beer still tasted pretty yummy

DocLock (7829) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 27, 2012
Bomber from Wegmanís Collegeville. Pours turbid dark ruddy orangy brown with 1-finger frothy off-white head. Nose is intense fresh pumpkin puree, pumpkin spice, graham crackers. Tastes rich, complex, with a fresh pumpkin taste that has that slight vegatal flavor and not an oversweet or fake pumpkin flavor, plus malt, biscuity graham crackers, and a good but not overwhelming amount of spiciness. This one is delicious.

Pours a dark amber color with no head. Powerful spice aroma with a hint of pumpkin. Heavy spice flavor with some pumpkin, biscuit, and caramel. Decent beer.
