COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly Chatoe Rogue Pumpkin Patch Ale.

The newest addition to the Chatoe Rogue series is Pumpkin Patch Ale, a beer made using fresh pumpkins grown in a patch that borders Rogue’s 42 acre hop yard. The pumpkins are picked, loaded into Rogue’s farm truck, driven immediately 77 miles to our brewery in Newport, quickly roasted, and pitched into the brew kettle to create a batch of Pumpkin Patch Ale.

Big orange bottle. Pours brown with fizzy tan head. Aroma of pumpkin, nutmeg and cinnamon. Flavor is much the same, not much sweetness. Medium body with high carbonation. Overall, not bad at all!

I have a relative amount of faith in this one, even though the last off-kilter beer from Rogue that I rated was more of a disappointment than not. Still, they make good beer. This one has a mostly a muddy dark brown color, especially if you end up with the beer form the bottom half of the bottle. Its aroma is of strong spices, a fruity sweetness, and is smoothed out by some fibrous, meaty pumpkin. I emphasize "smooth" over "spice". In the mouth, it’s just meaty and almost creamy enough to handle the potent spices. This tastes just like what I’d imagine it would be like to chew on a pumpkin stem. It’s green and earthy and has hints of pumpkin meat, but is mostly very plant-like. Neither the spices nor the pumpkin seem to dominate the beer. It’s extremely well-balanced between the two, but neither one lets you in on the fact that this has any other ingredients. It finishes extremely smooth, bright on the palate, and an almost sticky sweetness decorates the beer with a hint of dirt. This isn’t your every day drinking beer, but would go great with some pork chops or a Thanksgiving ham.

22oz bottle in a lager glass. Pours amber with a lacy, light tan head. Aroma of pumpkin and spice, a lot of caramel malts, and floral hops. Flavor the same, with a nice blend of malts and pumpkin. Average to smooth texture. A good pumpkin beer.

Location: 22 oz bottle shared by jcos, 11/10/12

Aroma: The nose has a lot of pumpkin, with some clove, allspice, cinnamon, and a little ginger
Appearance: It pours a dark orange-brown with a beige head and some streaky lace
Flavor: The taste is fairly spicy, with a nice balance between the sweetness and the bitterness
Palate: The body is medium-plus, with a bit of a tingle, and a smooth, spicy finish
Overall Impression: I thought this was a really quality pumpkin beer. It has a lot of spice and a really solid flavor to it. I’d definitely put this one at or near the top of the style.

This beer has a very good looking brown color with some subtle amber undertones. It has a thick creamy head. The pumpkin flavor doesn't really come through but it is a well made good tasting beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
