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.

750 mL bottle poured into a tall lager glass. This beer starts with a notable pumpkin spice aroma which then mellows, and blends into something more butterscotch and bread, then settles into a biscuit / cookie-like aroma. It pours a hazy, murky, yet effervescent orange-amber color with a lot of sediment (kinda looks like an apple cider) and a fizzy looking light yellow-brown head with a range of bubble sizes not larger than medium. It reduces down to a thick ring with an abundant dusty surface and an runny, webby lace that only leaves a few specks. The taste is a medium, mellow sweet with a light, dry and spicy, bitterness. There’s a healthy dose of fizzy, yet soft, carbonation to this creamy, full bodied beer. There are definitely vegetable notes (sweet potato and pumpkin specifically) notes to the flavor, along with some bread crust and caramel. There’s an apple cider like, spicy finish which is light, and feels clean and fresh - more allspice and clove than the sugary sweetness. The aftertaste is cloying with dry malt and flavors of light clean spice, vegetables, grass, and caramel malt. There is pumpkin spice present nearly throughout the drink, but it’s much more spicy than sugary, and it’s a balanced touch to the spice - it doesn’t dominate the flavor, and the gourd actually gets a chance shine through as the dominant flavor.

Aurelius (4660) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Deep bronze, not quite clear. Oatmeal colored head. Good tap handle. Rich, candied caramel aroma with light spicing. Tasty, moderately spicy, to the point of having some heat. Alas, another technically decent beer that I won’t buy again because I really didn’t enjoy it. Some grassy notes, generally a bit veggie. Mouthy, good carbonation. Spice cake ending. On tap, Brass Tap Midtown.

750 mL bottle. Purchased a year ago, labelled as "Chatoe Rogue First Growth Pumpkin Patch Ale". Pours a deep caramel color with a little red color on the edges. Light tan head, 3/4" slowly settles to a film covering the beer. Aroma is mostly spices - cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves - standard pumpkin ale spices but not overpowering like others. Malt aroma in the background. Medium-full body, taste carries on with the spices but again, they’re not overpowering the malt, it’s very nicely balanced. The finish takes a turn - I get a little coffee, some light toasted notes and its a little dry too. Very good, glad I held on to this one!

750 ml bottle from Biggie Wine & Liquor. Clear amber reddish appearance with a beige head. Aroma of freshly roasted pumpkins, nutmeg, spicy clove, cinnamon, caramel malts and light toffee. Similar flavor, nicely balanced and not overdone in any aspect. Moderately spiced and lightly sweet with a touch of bitterness. Medium body with a crisp feel and a rich, spiced finish. I’m not a big fan of pumpkin beers in general, but this one stands out in a big way.

On tap at Brass Tap , Coral Sorings, pours a light rustorange color wth a very small head. Nose is spicy with pumpkin, nutmeg and cinnamon. Taste is full of fall spices, allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon and pumpkin with some mold sweetness. Finishes on the same sweet fall spicey notes. Great pumpkin ale. Quaff Score 8 / 10

Pours relatively lighter bodied chestnut brown. Almost no head and what appears to be light carbonation. Something about this pumpkin beers’ aroma does almost seem fresher than most. Still has all the usual suspects in the spice category for a pumpkin ale: nutmeg, clove, cinnamon. Also has a honey/caramel like sweetness that may be the malt profile asserting itself a bit. This is definitely a more restrained and balanced pumpkin beer than most out there. Firm malt presence the entire way thru, similar profile to a good oktoberfest/marzen beer. If you’re pallet is not yet burnt out on all the pumpkin ales, seek this one out for a milder, pleasant experience.
