Our most popular seasonal offering without question, with its light body,mellow pumpkin character and delicate spice flavor.Pumpkins have been used in American brewing since Colonial Times and here at Milly's we carry on this tradition. We use only fresh New Hampshire grown pumpkins (thanks Farmer Phil) unlike many breweries using purees and extracts which are available year around, our Pumpkin Ale is only available after the first harvest (typically mid/late September, so beware of the imitators.

Drank this a while ago at Milly’s Tavern in Manchester, NH. The sample glass came with orange sugar around the rim which looked pretty! Great pumpkin and brown sugar taste!

Liked this one a lot. Probably helped by the nice cinnamon sugared rim. Spicy and pumpkin pie aroma. Golden light in color, clear, and light tasting. Great nutmeg taste at end.

I first tried this pumpkin ale in November 2005. At Millys Tavern, this was served to me in a pint glass with a sugar/cinnamon mix on the rim. This went well with the pumpkin & spice of the ale. Great ending. Thanks, Mike!

Draught. Orange, hazy color, with a medium white head, sprinkled with brown sugar on top. Aroma is spicy, and malty. Flavor is just like pumpkin pie, and very spicy. Delicious, and I may even start spinkling brown sugar on all my pumpkin brews.

On tap and brought a growler home. Pours a hazy yellow/orange color with a 1/2" white head. Nose is subtle pumpkin. A nice mellow pumpkin flavor without all the extra spice that some pumpkin brews have. Served with the rim of the glass dipped in a brown sugar/sugar mix which added a hint of sweetness. They also give you some to take home when you order a growler. Hands down the best pumpkin ale I’ve had so far.

Draft at the source. Hazy golden color, small white head. Aroma of nutmeg, cinnamon, gourd. Taste is more gourd than spice. Subtle and balanced, not too spice-heavy.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2006 on tap-pours a creamy white head that lingers. Aroma is pumpkin, cinnamon, spice. Rim was coated (sugar & spices).Taste is pumpkin, good carbonation. A bit thin, but nice. rerate-nice improvement from last year’s batch.

Not a big fan of this style, though is one one of the better ones.The only drawback is the bartenders rim the glass with sugar and spice, though I think I might be one those 1% that doesn’t like it as all the other cattle bellied up to the bar seem to lick it up like candy.The pumpkin flavor is subdued but present,spices are faint at best.The one things this beer holds onto is that fact that it’s still a beer and not just a vehicle for a squash.

Draft at the pub. They will serve it with or without sugar around the rim. I got the sugar. Nice pumpkin spice nose. The sugar adds to the pumpkin pie likeness, “cinnamon and spice”. Good drinkability goes down REAL easy. Pumpkin is light and not over the top. Carbonation adds a nice tingle in the mouthfeel. With or without the sugar it’s a nice brew. Well crafted.

Attractive pumpkin spiciness, even in the non-cinnamon-rimmed glass...Candies sit on wood and oranges extend into easy drinking...Well-balanced, not too sweet and quite flavorful...
