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.

12oz bottle poured into my Elysian Night Owl Pumpkin tulip glass. Pours a clear orange copper color With a medium to thin white head that lraves light lacing. Smells of pumpkin, spices, lemongrass, and cinnamon. Tastes of all the same things in the smell but with a lingering cranberry/lemongrass tartness in the backend. Mouthfeel is meduim bodied with light carbonation and a slightly dry finish. I was really excited when I saw this. I ended up being sort of let down. Not bad but could have been done much better and had more carbonation. It also needed a little more pumpkin and spice flavors. I Might pick up a 6 pack if its the right price but wonít be seeking it out again.

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.

355ml brown bottle. Clearish golden with white foam. Nose has cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves, sweet and pie-like. Taste has cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin. Light cranberry-lemon note of bitterness at the end. Interesting pumpkin brew, really enjoyable.

12oz bottle. A bit thin and slightly bitter for the style - not getting the sweetness others noted, relative to other pumpkin brews; my wife did not approve... I liked the cranberry addition though. Medium bodied with medium to full carbonation.

Keyaki. Spicy, bit too sweet for me. Itís alright, but I donít quite get regular pumpkin beers so not surprised it doesnít do much for me. Itís my fault, not the beerís.
