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.

Bottle. Date on the side: 12/22/13. A clear copper pour with a smallish beige head. The aroma features funky wet cardboard, canned pumpkin, artificial cranberry juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and some orange juice in the background. Goes down thin to medium-bodied. Spritzy. Caramel and brown sugar start things off taste-wise. Sweet pumpkin and tart cranberry juice quickly follow. Citrus fruits and zesty rinds finish things off. A tad yeasty with plenty of cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice throughout.

I just had a good pumpkin beer and this was just the opposite. Awful. Orange jello appearance. Basically a bastardized Fat Tire. Smells of sewage and corn. the best way to describe it is think of a Corona pumpkin beer. Gross.

Light amber pour with a big whitish head. Flavors of pumpkin pie spice, tartness from the cranberry, yeasty and tropical fruitiness on the finish. Interesting but not my favorite pumpkin beer.

A very clean smooth beer. Not too heavy on the pumpkin or spices and a very slight hint of tartness at the end from the cranberry. This is one I could sit and drink a 6 pack of no problem. A perfect beer for the fall in Colorado.

Tasted from a 12oz brown bottle into tulip glass. It poured a hazy deep orange amber colour with weak white foam, some lace. An odd blend of caramelly malts, pumpkin, pumpkin pie spices, citrus, and subtle cranberry tartness. I love lemongrass in beer, but I couldnít really detect it here. I donít know if this is fermented with a Belgian yeast, but the spices meld nicely and give a similar impression, particularly the nutmeg. Light body, spritzy carbonation, a subtle alcoholic warmth crept up on me. Interesting and well-crafted. Good stuff.

Sampled at esbls. Orangish and just a little hazy. A pumpkin aroma and flavor. Little spice. More would help. Decent.

Long-lasting thin head. Golden yellow. Decent nose. Interesting take on a pumpkin ale with its slight cranberry tang. Easily drinkable.

Essence of gingerbread, amber with very thick creamy head. Else itís not as rich as some of the other fall pumpkin beers Iíve tried recently. Not bad, but not great.

Very clean and enjoyable pumpkin beer. Pour is orange to lite amber with a full off white head. Aroma is nice; malty with a touch of spice. Over all flavors and lite and pleasant but still have enough off the pumpkin and spices to remind you of the fall.

This is a quite tasty pumpkin beer. Itís nicely balanced, and the pumpkin sweetness is offset by the spices and tartness of the cranberry. Very tasty and goes down smooth. Definitely enjoyed this one!
