COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
What’s 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 it’s the cranberries and touch of lemongrass that send your tastebuds sailing.

Listening to Pumped Up Kicks while rating this. Not my favorite song, but it is catchy, and given the name of this beer I thought it necessary. Bottle from a Kroger. Pours a clear amber color with a large large foamy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of earth, cranberry, pumpkin, mild burnt sugar, spice. The taste is earth, pumpkin, mild spice, herbal notes, tart berries and some hops in the finish. Medium bodied. Solid.

Bottle. Deep reddish orange with a thin light white head. Wow, the nose is fascinating. It has the definite pumpkin and spice character that you normally expect, but then that is tweaked with a slightly sour fruity character. The spicing is like cinnamon and clove. This is not sweet as I thought it would be given the nose. A tasty and interesting beer, but seems more like a gimmick than anything that people would want over and over. Not enough pumpkin to keep the fans of the typical beers interested and not sour enough for the sour heads.

Pretty average as far as pumpkin beers go. Didnt’ get much of the cranberry except a little tart on the aftertaste. Easy to drink, will definetly purchase later in the season to compare when more Pumpkin beers are out.

It poured a cloudy amber color with a small white head. The aroma was of mild pumpkin and some cranberry. The taste was similar, not overwhelming, but right on. Very nice!

This is extremely pumpkin heavy. The aroma has some but not nearly as much as the body. It’s really too much for me. It also tasted a tad bit of the alcohol.

Poured from a cold bottle. Clear orange color, light white head. Slight pumpkin smell with a slight sourness to it. Very mute taste, slight sourness, the pumpkin eventually surfaces but clashes with the sour fruitiness.

12 oz bottle. Pours hazy golden orange with a small fizzy white head that quickly goes to a thin collar.

The aroma is pumpkin spices (nutmeg, cinnamon) with some malt.

The flavor is some vegetative pumpkin and light spice (mostly cinnamon) with a bit of medicinal bitterness. I don’t get much cranberry or lemongrass. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation and is a bit watery.

Overall, a bit of a letdown. Might be better if they waited and used real pumpkin rather than releasing in July.

Draft. Pumpkin, cinnamon, clove and nutmeg aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Sweet spicy pumpkin malt flavor. Very good.

Perfectly average pumpkin beer. My first pumpkin beer of the season, so it's pretty freaking great. Very drinkable, excellent session beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Pumpkin malt and ginger heavy pumpkin spices aroma. Clear copper with a small off-white head. Just like the nose, pumpkin malt and ginger heavy pumpkin spices flavor. LIght body, soft carbonation. Not a bad pumpkin beer.
