COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This very special seasonal ale is only available on draft through Christmas time. Olde Towne Pumpkin Ale is a smooth, mellow brew, perfect for the fall of the year. This orange-tinted, amber ale delights the senses with the aroma of pumpkin and spices. Hints of cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove give off a warm holiday glow.

DEAR GOD! I had this at a restaurant my band ( www.TheMartiniShakers.com for a shameless plug--this is where I had it, though) was playing one night. They were having a special event where only Olde Towne beers were being served. Had I not been drinking for free, I would have demanded my money back. I drank a pint of this crap, and couldn’t drink any more beer that night. Every Olde Towne beer I drank after that tasted like this. I would rather drink the beer in the bar towel of a pub that serves ANY other beer than this than EVER put this to my lips again. Avoid this liek the plague!!!!!!!&#

Draft at the Nook. Pale in the glass with a creamy white head. Big pumpkin and nutmeg aroma with a backing of butter. The pumpkin is not nearly as big in the flavor, but there, with some dough and wheat. Light to medium body with some tingly carbonation and a wheat aftertaste.

I’m not much on Pumpkin ales, but this one has good body and a nice balance of spices. Probably better than any Pumpkin Ale I’ve ever had.

I thought it was rather tasty. Had it on tap tonight at the House of Brews in Huntsville. Nice dark orange-amber in color with no head. Fairly strong aroma of pumpkin spice, nutmeg. Very flavorful ... malty with strong pumpkiny overtones and a nice, dark spiciness to it. Very enjoyable.

This is the first pumpkin ale I have had, but since it was a local brew, I ordered one, not knowing what to expect. Almost clear, with a very slight cloudiness. Orange in color. The aroma was definitely pumpkin pie spices and a little pumpkin, but the taste was definitely beer. Smooth and easy to drink, but definitely not an every day beer. I could smell the holidays though.

This beer is only available on tap in Huntsville at a few select places, or kegs from the brewer. Color is hazy orange with very little off-white head. The aroma is faintly sour malt with a pumkin nose, some fruitiness. The flavor is sour pumkin and malt, heavy yeast finish. Palate is mild and fizzy.
