Long Trail Imperial Pumpkin Ale is the latest introduction to the Long Trail Brewmaster Series. This limited release seasonal treat is small batch brewed with pumpkins, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves with increased malts and a touch of bitterness for the perfect balance.

22oz. bottle: This one pours a clear, orangish-amber color. There was almost no head on it, and no lacing. The aroma is decent, and expected. Pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg are the dominant ones. Not overdone, but they mask anything else. The taste is pretty good. Nicely balanced between the hops and malts. A touch of pumpkin, the pumpkin pie spices, and a hint of bitterness. A nice fall beer!

Moderate pumpkin with a light spice and malt later in the aroma. Cloudy orange color with a medium white head. Sweet and pumpkin beginning with a light bitter finish. Nice mellower pumpkin beer.

Reddish brown maple syrup color with a bit of oof-white head. Aroma and taste are tuned down imperial pumpkin, but still pretty textbook. $5.5/22

Medium bodied dark amber Pumpkin Ale with plenty o’ pumpkin aroma and body. Spices are part of the make-up, however, not overbearing. When I read it was an English Strong Ale style it all made sense. Bitterness is evident but not the center of attention. Well done offering from Long Trail. I have been impressed with the Brewmaster Series and at only $5 a bomber a welcome bargain.

22 oz bottle. Pours orange/amber with a one finger off white head that settles down to a thin ring. Aroma is light spices, mostly nutmeg and cinnamon. Flavor is semi sweet. A little light pumpkin flavor with the aforementioned spices. It is a bit boozy at 8%. Medium bodied with a nice smooth mouthfeel. Nice job.

keanex (1629) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - SEP 8, 2013
Bottled June 28, 2013.
Appearance: The body is hazy with a garnet to mahogany hue with a towering tan head that has great retention, settling into a full coating.
Aroma: Cinnamon and graham cracker are prominent with hints of vanilla, clove and ginger. The aroma leans sweet and enticing.
Taste: Sweet caramel is throughout, from start to finish with pumpkin pie flavors. The spices are really subdued, cinnamon and ginger is most notable with cloves lingering on the finish. This is a nice pumpkin beer.
Palate: Soft creamy body.
Overall: This is actually really solid. I love the sweetness that’s balanced nicely by the spices. As far as pumpkin beer is concerned, this is a good one.

Bottle via SL.. Dark red in color.... not much head. Nose of some spices...Malty, bready. Taste is more of a winter warmer of harvest ale. Light spices, malty, bready, good but where is the pumpkin? Body is medium, low carbonation. Easy to drink. Overall... not really a pumpkin but a nice brew...
