COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Whatís that bite of tartness doing in a pumpkin beer? Adding the unexpected kick of cranberry juice to brighten this traditionally spiced seasonal ale. PUMPKICK is brewed with plenty of pumpkin juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice, but itís the cranberries and touch of lemongrass that send your tastebuds sailing.

Draft at Franklin Tap. Pumpkin pie smell is a little light; not as big on the nose as the Cisco pumpkin beer I had earlier. Deep autumnal orange color, thin head. It does have a pumpkin taste at the start, then spices build as I sip. The spice masks an overall sweetness like a bit of molasses, and kept me from guessing there was a tart fruit addition as well. Instead, I started to detect a bit of roastiness that might have come from the pumpkin, but now I see they used pumpkin "juice." Mild on the alcohol, but pretty filling. I would never mistake it for something besides a pumpkin pie beer, Iím pretty sure.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - OCT 3, 2013
Tap at Haven Pasadena. Pours a clear golden. Medium white foam. Okay lacing. Nose is bizarre, semi medicinal, something like melted Halloween candy. Taste is watery, sweet Halloween candy. Palate is lemon tea, drained.

Type: 12-oz. bottle Glass: Firestone restaurant pint glass From: BevMo in La Mesa (San Diego), Calif. Price: $1.59 Purchased: Sept. 26, 2013 Consumed: Sept. 29, 2013 Misc.: Best by Jan. 12, 2014 Poured a copper orange clear color with 1-to-2 fingers of gray head. Below average lacing on the sides. Average retention on the top on the way down. Smelled cranberry, raspberry, pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, gingerbread and some other wintery spices. Faint note of bitter hops. Pleasantly surprised at the whiff. Tasted cinnamon, nutmeg and gingerbread up front, reminding me of a winter beer with less heaviness. Also pumpkin seeds, yam, herb hops, cranberry (although not nearly as much as the smell) and peppery spices. Light-to-medium body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Long, warming finish. Not too bad I have to say. I was expecting something a lot worse. A lighter version of a winter beer is what I would describe it as. Iíd probably try it again.

Yellow orange in color.... Not much aroma... Flavor is pumpkin, spices, and a hint of cranberry sweetness on the finish... Thin body... Okay ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

b3shine (8108) - Indiana, USA - OCT 1, 2013
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent gold with off-white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes of mild pumpkin and spices. Average on the palate. Okay, but forgettable.

This is not a bad beer. In fact, itís a very drinkable amber ale. It is a very mild beer, however. I also didnít notice the tartness of the cranberries. I wasnít aware of them to know to look for them when I had the beer, so obviously, itís more of a note in the overall chord than it is a major factor.

pours a redish brown color with a sizable white head. Smells of pumpkin, some spices, but it is not over exaggerated. The taste is what gets me you could taste the pumpkin and spices but then a tart/dry flavor of cranberries hijacks the beer. not my favorite pumpkin ale
