COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
There are three things we have learned to never discuss with people here: religion, politics, and the Great Pumpkin. But that doesn’t mean we can’t welcome our own Great PumpCan and sing pumpkin carols and enjoy MadTree’s way of delivering some delicious pumpkin ale flavor right to your gullet.

On draft at Mac & Joe’s. This is malty, with the right amount of spice and pumpkin. There is a little ginger and allspice too. A good pumpkin ale.

12 ounce can
A clever name and eye catching packaging pulled this seasonal into my cart during a visit to the Cincinnati area. It managed to impress with little reason to waste even a drop. One again MadTree affirms a risk by providing great rewards.

Aroma / Appearance - The deep mahogany body presents itself like a caramel brownie decorated by a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Nutmeg, spiced pumpkin pie, and cinnamon drive the agenda with little bready notes to steer it to the other end of the spectrum.

Flavor / Palate - Pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg lighten the mood. An assertive transition and finish glow with warmth as the 8% ABV makes itself known. A long lasting finish lets you enjoy it well past the final sip. This seasonal doesn’t back down and also doesn’t disappoint.

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 30, 2016
Poured into a perfect pint. 3.0 A: Clear orange amber color. One finger of beige soda type head that falls quickly and leaves no lacing. 4.0 S: Rich caramel and molasses. Loads of cinnamon with ginger, nutmeg, and allspice. Moderate toastiness. Good amount of pumpkin and sweetness overall. 3.75 T: Good mix of pumpkin and the spices listed above. Caramel and molasses. Toasty malts. 3.25 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. A touch of creaminess. Super smooth. 3.75 D: I hate to say this, but I think last year’s was better. I remember it being richer in taste and creamier. In fact I remember it as the best brew produced in Cincinnati. Now it’s still solid, but it isn’t phenomenal. ★ 724 characters DavoleBomb, Sep 17, 2015

BuckeyeBoy (5796) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 4, 2015

Gription79 (2803) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - DEC 2, 2015
Poured from a 12 ounce can. Pour a a cloudy brown with very little head. The aroma is malty, the spicing is restrained, not one spice stands out. The flavor shows the spices a little better, cinnamon, nutmeg, malty. This is well done, great balance.

On tap at Max and Erma’s. Pours a dark hazy copper color with a white head. Aromas of pumpkin and spice. Taste the same with some malty sweetness. Nice beer. Light palate. Decent lacing in the glass. Very nice.

Panzuriel (1922) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - SEP 30, 2015
12 oz can purchased at Westerville Kroger. MadTree The Great PumpCan is a murky brown amber brew with a full head of off white bubbles. Nose is pumpkin earthiness with Nutmeg and cinnamon. Taste is medium roasted malt, balanced by the pumpkin flavor and picked out by the spices. A really nice blend of all the elements. None overpowers the rest significantly. Body is full and creamy. A very nicely done pumpkin ale.
