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.

Good appearance but the aroma isn’t inviting. Flavor lacks something. .. maybe nutmeg or cinnamon

Bottle. Nutmeg, allspice and ginger aroma as well as pumpkin. Pours orangish with a thin, white head with moderate lacing. Pumpkin and the aforementioned spices to start. Finishes smooth with a bit cranberry tartness that stays on the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A vigorous pour into my teku glass produces a three finger thick, pale, off-white colored head. The beer smells of ginger, nutmeg, rounded allspice, and just a lot of floral spice character that domiinates the nose of the beer. There is quite a bit of woodiness to the spice character as well.

The beer has as soft caramelized malt character to it up front, almost an English biscuit like note, and then the spice character starts to kick in; the spices are more rounded and integrated than the in-your-face presentation from the aroma. Woody allspice and nutmeg are joined by a ginger bite in the finish. The beer has a light tartness to it, but I would be hardpressed to guess either lemon grass or cranberries where used here. The finish, as the beer warms up, has a soft sweetness to it that definitely brings out the pumpkin pie like flavors to this beer. The body has a soft chewiness to it that works well with the spice levels used here, and doesn’t allow them to become overly sharp or harsh.

This is definitely a spice dominated beer, but still enjoyable enough if you are into pumpkin beers. Depending on my mood, I can definitely be up for a pumpkin beer, and luckily enough, right now I am.

Bottle at a function I was at last week. I don’t think I would buy this myself, but I found it drinkable and pretty interesting. Sweet pumpkin spice. Slightly tart finish. Interesting.

It’s fucking August and not only is this out, but nearly sold out at my local. I hate beer. Best by 01DEC13 Amber with a solid quilt of near bone white foam. Smells of allspice, cranberry juice, some grain and plenty more cranberries, but sweet. Too bad the cranberries aren’t more like Serendipity - that was a yummy beer. Flavor is malt, mild spice, raisin, sweet, muddled overall and kinda bland....even for a pumpkin beer. Medium bodied with light carb and a wet finish. This beer was subpar.
