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.

Pours dark amber with whitish head. Smell is slightly spiced and light pumpkin. Taste is a bit tart and malty with not much discernible spice at all. Faint pumpkin flavor perhaps. Overall a bit bland unfortunately. Still drinkable and decent but fell short of my expectations based on the ingredients. Didn't really get any cranberry flavor...

Boring, typical pumpkin brew. Muddled flavors of your regular, allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon, orange peel. Minor hints of pumpkin and cranberry. Lemongrass was nice to give it a slight tart finish. Boring ...

Pours slightly hazed, deep orange with a creamy off-white head. Strong pumpkin pie spice scents.... Taste is pumpkin....Cranberry juice.... The cranberry, I think, is a bit of a distraction.... Not bad....

Bottled from Windy City. Nose is fairly typical for a pumpkin beer. The normal spices seem present. Crisp and spicy. Good spice character. Some graininess. A hint of sweetness that may come from the cranberry. The cranberry is very subtle. Good pumpkin brew.

Itís not a regular pumpkin beer! Itís got lemongrass and cranberries and..and...blah blah blah. Itís pretty much the exact same as every other run of the mill pumpkin beer.

amber beer with a solid aroma. Good mouth feel. I think this rates a little better than other spice beers Ivíe tries. Overall a bit bland and unmemorable.

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2013 bottle. nice looking reddish orange beer with a small, stable, frothy white head. usual pumpkin spice notes with a distinct, sweet, juicy cranberry note. the cranberry provides a juicy sweetness to the beer that makes it unique and seems to thicken the body and a hint of tart in the finish. the body seems full and juicy with a nice creaminess.

Pours fairly clear reddish orange with a good sized rocky beige head. The aroma has some cranberry tartness, mild pumpkin (compared to most of the style), pumpkin pie spices and the amber ale bases that is with so many of this style. Pretty decent really. Medium bodied with a crispness to it and modest amount of carbonation. The taste begins with pumpkin, toasty amber ale malt, minor spices and a mere hint of the cranberry. The finish puts the spices and cranberry more to the front of the mix and the pumpkin takes a backseat. Would want this every day, but itís a pleasant take on the pumpkin ale scene.
