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 Rogueís 42 acre hop yard. The pumpkins are picked, loaded into Rogueís 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.

badlizard (5539) - Berkeley, California, USA - NOV 30, 2011
Bottle. Dark reddish brown with a fizzy white head. Strong pumpkin pie aroma and a taste with cinnamon up front followed by creamy pumpkin flavors. Not bad.

alexanderj (3310) - Branson, Missouri, USA - NOV 25, 2011
Bottle; poured a ruby type amber color with not much head. ARoma of pumpkin, spice, caramel and veggies. Flavor was pretty darn good; a nice dose of pumpkin, fairly balanced and good body.

Bottle. Orangish brown pour. Decent amount of head. Nose of fairly faint pumpkin pie notes and malt. Taste follows. Many better options for this category.

marcus (6418) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 20, 2011
Bottle from Total Wine, Sacramento. Pours copper with a thick beige head and a pumpkin aroma. There is a spicy pumpkin flavor with a flat vegetable finish.

StormCoat (106) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 16, 2011
Picked up a bomber bottle from Bi-Rite Market in San Diego, CA, and split it with Dusky Lou. Pours a cloudy nut brown color with a soapy, light beige head. Aroma of sweet spicy breadónutmeg, squash, etc. Flavors are nice; nutty, pumpkinny, a bit of sweet maltiness, with a fruity, tangy undercurrent that reminds me of a nice brown ale. In the finish, however, this beer leaves me a bit cold, as it comes off a little thin and reminds me of the weak sweetness of diet soda. I guess it just seems like itís not as pleasantly robust as the aroma and first swig promise it will be. Not bad, though.

DuffMan (6632) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 15, 2011
Botlle, shared with Parksy and Gripp in a pumpkin beer taste-off. By far the most richly aromatic and flavorful of the brews we tried, calling to mind pumpkin muffins with a hearty nutmeg spiciness and a dark bready caramel maltiness with assertive pumpkin character. Among the best, if not the best, pumpkin beer Iíve yet tried.

BOLTZ7555 (2780) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - NOV 13, 2011
Dark burnt tangerine/chestnut pour with a 1/2 creamy eggshell head that left a spot or two of lacing. Aroma of ripe pumpkin, caramel, brown sugar, and spice. Flavor shows Halloween and the mouthfeel is fairly creamy. Not as aggressive as some or subtle as others, this is a nicely balanced fall brew that possesses relatively high drinkability. Not bad.

3fourths (7976) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 6, 2011
bottle. hazed medium-dark brown with a dark tan fine-bubbled foamy head. rich, fleshy, meaty, slightly-roasted pumpkin nose, a bit like squash soup in itís heartiness and creaminess thanks to the pacman yeast. intensely fresh and robust nose, and iím actually very surprised iím enjoying it this much, bringing back memories of the heralded selinís grove pumpkin ale. soft and creamy texture, medium body, light to medium sweetness (caramel sweetness, which is oddly out of place and seems to overtake the pumpkin character). spiced, peppery finish seems alcoholic. enjoyable silken texture but the spiciness and caramel / maple syrup sweetness are both a bit excessive.

pintbypint (2582) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 5, 2011
650ml brown bottle. Dark golden orange colour with some haze. Tan head is creamy and thick. Good lace. Nose has big pumpkin pie spice notes - big on the cloves, cinnamon and ginger heat, lots of nutmeg. Flavour has nutty malt, toasty malts, woody pumpkin, caramel malt, cloves. Dry finish, some lasting woody notes, some earth. Creamy body, light to medium carbonation. A nice pumpkin beer, and a decent cool weather, autumnal ale in general.

bhensonb (10902) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 4, 2011
Bottle from Beverages 4 Less in Santee, CA. Pours very hazy dark amber with a foamy creamy beige head. Aroma is very pie spice - maybe some ginger? Near med body. Thereís some malt, but it gets overwhelmed by the spices. Seems somewhat gingery. Goes slightly watery in the finish. Think it could use a higher ABV. I donít know what it is now, but I think an increase would smooth it out. Pretty good pumpkin ale. There are many less tasty.
