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.

This was an interesting pumpkin beer in the respect that it focuses primarily on the flavor of the pumpkin. There are light spice notes of cinnamon and nutmeg present but much less so than many other pumpkin beers I’ve had. Pours a dark orange/rust hue into the glass with a small white head. Big aromas of roasted pumpkin with some spices. Big pumpkin flavor and a refreshing finish. Overall, not my favorite pumpkin beer but props to them for showcasing that pumpkin flavor so much it was a good brew and I’d recommend trying it.

This has not been a good year for pumpkin beers, at least from my perspective. Lots of stuff that tastes more like an overly spiced mess than any pumpkin. This one, however, is, y’know, pumpkin-y. I get a nice roasted vegetable character, some light spices, and even a little hop bit. Not bad.

Bomber pours a healthy orange amber with a white head. Aromas of pumpkin pie spice vanilla caramel malts some grainy cooked vegetable pumpkin flavor also cloves and allspice. Flavor is slightly sweet and body is medium and very palatable. Finishes semi-sweet

Pailhead (5430) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - OCT 25, 2012
Bottle: The aroma consists of caramel, vanilla, clove, pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg. It pours a dark, mostly transparent, amber with a touch of haze. It has a two finger khaki head with decent retention and some nice webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of light caramel that is quickly overtaken by moderate toasted pumpkin in the middle. The finish has light clove, cinnamon, and nutmeg. It’s medium bodied with soft carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel. Overall, this really is a pumpkin beer with some light spice as opposed to a pumpkin pie spiced beer. For my tastes, there’s definitely enough pumpkin here that a little more spice would have been nice.

Bottle with Carla from Belmont Station. Pours a hazy dark amber with off-white foam. Smells sweet like sweet potatoes and pumpkin pie. Tastes slightly squashy with hints of salt, alcohol and lots of pumpkin pie.

Lacking in aroma. Pours with a very thick and heavy head. Could use a little more body. Pumpkin flavor really comes out at the end.

Bomber--->shaker. Pours deep red/orange with a creamy tan head. Aroma is pumpkin, vanilla, and nutmeg. Taste has light bready graham cracker, clove, and a spicy ginger bite on the back end. Nice medium body which supports the flavors big time. I’m a sucker for pumpkin beers and this one is a keeper.

Not a big pumpkin beer fan but loved this one. I think the use of real pumpkins in the brewing produced a hazy orange ale that is delicious. Not overly nutmegy like many pumpkin beers.

Pour out of 22 oz bottle, thanks to Aaron for the pour! Dark orange red pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of pumpkin, slight spice, touch of oak, slight earth, caramel, vanilla. Taste is a mix of pumpkin, earth, caramel, some nice toast, hints of earth, vanilla, finishing fairly spicy, slightly dry. This is fairly enjoyable.

Bottle @ home during my #5,000 tick fest, picked up at Wilburs Foco. Pours a bit hazy, dark reddish orange appearance with a cream colored head. Pretty spicy, nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla, light caramel nose. Pretty rich, cinnamon, mild caramel, toasted pumpkin, vanilla, rich nutmeg flavor. Pretty tasty.
