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 from Liquid Assets. Dark orange pumpkin body with thin, oily head. Nose is sweet, floral, with pumpkin notes. Taste also lots of pumpkin, malts and spices. Apples in the taste too. Quite prickly and carbonated. Not really my thing...

SpongeRuiner (1114) - Michigan, USA - OCT 19, 2015
On tap at Peteís Place. Pours a clear golden brown. Light white head. Light spiced nose. Overall light flavors. Touch of pumpkin at first then gets drowned with cranberry. A little graham crust in the back. Which I suppose Iím ok with since I like cranberry better than pumpkin. Better for me personally as Iím not a big pumpkin fan.

Smooth, light orange pour. What a nice variation on a pumpkin beer. Moderate spice and only hints of pumpkin on the palate. Good if you want a lighter pumpkin ale.

Block (2207) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - OCT 17, 2015
I was actually a little surprised and was really looking forward to this beer. Very underwhelming and average at best. This beer had almost no spice or kick of any kind. Light flavors throughout and little pumpkin.

Narnad (1518) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - OCT 16, 2015
Pours an orange color with a very low, dense, off white head. Aroma has a ton of cinnamon and allspice with a light malty/bready note at the finish. Flavor is full on pumpkin pie with max spice. Lots of cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice come through in the flavor with just a touch of cranberry at the finish. As with almost all pumpkin beer, the spice seems to dilute the mouthfeel as this feel a bit watery on the palate and has low carbonation to boot. Overall an okay brew nothing that I would seek out again though.

Quick3Beers (943) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 15, 2015
Aroma of cinnamon. I wish I could end it at that, but I need to keep typing. There is no additional aroma or flavor that I could detect, other than a bland bitter maltiness that comes as a result of being a beer. Meh.

swillguzzler99 (186) - Peoria, Arizona, USA - OCT 13, 2015
From a 12 ounce bottle. Pours a dark amber with light carbonation and slight head. Nose is Thanksgiving pumpkin pie. Sweet pumpkin taste, good mouthfeel, a tinge of bitter. Did I mention it tastes like pumpkin pie?

Pours an orange or honey color. Some head that lasts pretty well and okay lacing. It has tiny particles floating in there.

Aroma, no. Not really. Nutmeg, thatís all. I smell no pumpkin, no nothing.

Taste again is bland. I guess the main thing I Taste is lemongrass. Thereís slight cranberry, but not a lot. I really expected some tartness, not finding it. It gets a little better as it warms up.

Mouthfeel is medium body. It is bitter, only slightly. Itís crisp and refreshing. Pretty drinkable.

Overall, I donít like it so much. Many better pumpkin ales out there. The cranberry is interesting. The lemongrass is tasty. The beer isnít great however. Need to reformulate it. Sorry, not so good.

Heavily spiced, nutmeg seems to dominate the flavour profile. Good mouth feel, but too heavy handed to have more then one.
