Yes, there really is pumpkin in this beer, along with cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger to give this beer a mild pumpkin pie finish. Don’t worry, all of these ingredience are filtered out before it’s kegged. Available in fall.

On tap at Hops Haven Brew Haus. Amber with no head. Aroma of pumpkin, spice, nutmeg and clove. Taste of allspice, nutmeg, clove, not much else as the spices overpower. Mild pumpkin flavor in mine… looks like last years batch was beter.

On draught at the brewpub in Sheboygan, Wisconsin as "Pumpkin Smashing Ale." Pours a clear amber brew with a fast dissolving white head. Aroma of typical pumpkin pie filling with some earthy herbs/spices of nutmeg, clove and a touch of cinnamon with light caramel malt. Taste is medium bodied, very light carbonation with a malty bread character with a decent pumpkin pie filling flavors. Finish is semi-sweet, with a lingering nutmeg and pumpkin skin aftertaste.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 26, 2006
On tap at Hops Haven as "Pumpkin Smashing Ale". Poured a clear, light-medium golden with a short white head. The nose was distinct, expressive, and enticing... fresh pumpkin pie filling, nutmeg, and cardamom with sweet caramel and candy as it warmed up. Flavor was pumpkin pie goodness! Followed the nose well and resembled liquid pie.. nutmeg and other spices left a lasting impression on the finish. This was a step or 2 shy of medium-bodied on the palate and a bit grainy... otherwise a very enjoyable beer!

Just had a Pumpkin beer from somewhere out West, and I'm still trying to choke down that six-pack. This offering from Hops Haven Brewhaus (Port Washington Brewery)is a world beyond that. The color is, well, orange like pumpkins! Nice pumpkin pie aroma, with cinnamon and the nutmeg showing nicely, not the plastic/waxy flavor of so many other pumpkin offerings. A bit more malt would be welcomed,but this is amazingly good considering it hasn't been brewed for a few years. Could quaff this all night!
