COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our harvest ale, brewed with over 100 pounds of locally grown, heirloom varietal Cinderella pumpkins. The pumpkins are roasted, then pureed and added to the mash for sugar and color contribution. We add pumpkin pie spices during the last part of boil in the kettle. Very light, pumpkin pie-like flavor can be found in this orange hued brew.

Draft. Poured a hazy orange with a super thin white head. Not a good example of a pumpkin beer. The pie spices totally overwhelmed the other flavors, especially since it was a thin beer. Needed to highlight the pumpkin richness more. Cloyingly sweet.

On tap 5 oz. sample at Mad Fox Brewing Company restaurant in Falls Church, VA. Lightly hazy, nearly clear amber with off-white head and good lacing. Aroma of pumpkin, herbal hops, caramel, bread and spice. Taste of caramel, nutmeg, cinnamon, spice, bread, fruit, pumpkin and light hops. Medium body and medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nimbleprop (4813) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Poured right from the fermenter on tour at the brewpub. Pours a hazy orange with some frothy white head. Big, spicy nose, nutmeg, ginger, clove, root veg. Flavor has a big zip from the ginger, almost a wasabi like zing to it, after that fades you get the sweetness, carrot, banana bread, some yeast. Medium bodied, zippy finish.

Grabbed a growler from the brewpub yesterday afternoon. Pours a solid, hazy orange with a thin whisp of off-white head. Laces pretty well as it goes down. Nose is very nice, yet quite subtle. Definite notes of caramelized malt, roasted pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, and a host of other pumpkin-pie spices. I love the balance between the sweet, caramel nature of the malt and the hint of spices. The taste takes this even further in the right direction, as the balance is quite nice and refreshing. This is the rare pumpkin beer that is neither cloying nor suffering from spice overload. Mouthfeel is a bit thinner than I would like, although Iím bumping it back up a bit due to the fact that my tongue is assailed and pierced by excess cinnamon and clove. Drinkability is really great. My wife and I split a growler of this without a problem. I certainly could have gone for more, which is a rare occurrence, as Iím normally quite done with a pumpkin beer after 6-8 ounces.

On tap at the brewpub. Poured a dark copper color, orange notes, small white head. Spices are noticeable, pumpkin is there - but subtle. Flavor was incredibly spicy, notes of nutmeg, clove, ginger, a lot more "pumpkin pie" then pumpkin. There was a lot going on with this particular pumpkin beer - and thatís a good thing.
