Jack O’Lahar Pumpkin Ale is the perfect treat for the Halloween season. Roasted pumpkin is added to the mash and the boil along with an array of spices to give this an exquisite and unique flavor profile. Happy Trick or Treating! Enjoy! - Eric

This poured a lighter orange color with a white head. Aroma was light pie spices, caramel malt, and some cinnamon. Flavor was more cinnamon than anything, some toasted malt and caramel, and light astringency.

Bottle:   Deep caramel, thin to moderate sandy frothy head, spotty lacing.   Nice spiced nose, cinnamon and nutmeg.   Just what a Pumpkin beer should be!   Smooth spices on the tongue, aformentioned cinnamon and nutmeg.   Very nice balance, spicy enough to carry from start to finish, not too strong or too weak.   For a non-Imperial example its very well done, and a solid example of the style.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Clean finish, lingering spices.   Nothing out of the ordinary for this one, but its very well done and hits the spot when you want a straight up Pumpkin Ale.    The only thing I would add is I would love to see it a bit chewier.   Otherwise, well done!

Bomber to a glass. Pours a hazy brownish with a small amount if creamy head that doesn't last. Very little lacing. Lots of gingerbread and brown sugar aroma. A hint of burnt sugar aroma too, but in a good way. There is a lot of gingerbread taste, with a hint of vanilla and allspice. Very light finish. Delicious!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice pie spice on the nose, caramel, cake dough, light pumpkin. Amber pour, not much in the way of head or lace. Flavors of sweet pumpkin spice, nice pie notes, smooth caramel, light sugar. Well balanced, light pumpkin notes. Not out of whack spice wise or sweetness wise. Very well balaned and put together. I liked this.
