Fall brings out the best in in nature. Almost overnight trees that looked acceptable in their majestic coats of green, now don the brazen hues of brass, gold and burnt crimsons. Thanksgiving is perhaps the best of holidays, for it is a time for sharing and enriching our lives. To honor Fall we offer our deep mahogany hued Pumpkin Ale, bursting with a robust roasted malt flavor. To this mélange we add copious amounts of pumpkin and embellish that further with nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger. This would have been ideal, but perfection is our preference and so we diligently add cocoa nibs as the beer conditions and intensifies the depth of flavor. This melds magnificently with the pumpkin and spice. And as a fitting finale we gently introduce hops to compliment this complex potion and the result is a finish that is clean and brilliant. At 5% alc./vol., this is a Pumpkin perfect session ale – Perfect for Fall and the approaching holiday season. Look for this seasonal brew coming out in the Fall of 2013

Dark orange pour, no head. Aromas of pumpkin spice and cocoa. No real flavor nailed down on the palate. Light body, slightly pumpkin taste that turns into tart dry cocoa nibs, but you have to let the beer warm up to even get that note.

Slipstream (2278) - USA - NOV 20, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2015 Draft at Drop Off Service. Slightly soapy aroma but a fine flavor on this well balanced pumpkin brew. A bit of clove, nutmeg, cinnamon, and noticeable pumpkin too. Nothing overwhelming, which is good, and not too sweet either. Good autumn brew.

adnielsen (10199) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 21, 2015
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s in a mixer sixer. Pours a deep orangish brown appearance with a light brown head. The aroma is mostly toasted pumpkin / squash, some caramel, bread, and only light spices. Medium light body. Moderately spicy. Flavor has some orange citrus, toast, lemon, vanilla, allspice, cinnamon, and a moderate amount of pumpkin. Thankfully, the spices aren’t overdone but the beer is still a bit thin and not all that flavorful.

monk191 (1458) - California, USA - SEP 8, 2014
A decent pumpkin, not the best, not the worst. Pours a nice clear red. Smells of pumpkin and nutmeg. Taste is subtle, a little bit of pumpkin upfront, with a balanced but bit boring finish. Had on tap at Tiburon Taps Beer Festival.
