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.

I love, love, love this beer. It smells AMAZING! Bringing in all the smells of the season...pumpkin, nutmeg...a spicy smell with a satisfying taste thatís just right...not too overwhelming.

Great pumpkin ale. Smooth, balanced with a slightly sweet finish. More beer and less pumpkin flavor. Quality beer from a great brewer.

Pours a cloudy burnt orange, with a quickly disappearing tan head. Smells of Strong pumpkin with typical pumpkin pie type spices. But the real Strength of this brew is the Taste. Full bodied with good sweet smooth finish. Like pumpkin pie, a good dessert beer with a creamy body. Itís Not my Favorite Pumpkin Ale (Weyerbacher) But its probably top 5.

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.

Interesting pumpkin. Light, sweet flavor with biscuit and bread. Given the glut of similar pumpkins, a nice different taste.

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.

ben4321 (3863) - 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.

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
