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.

Rich amber sprays out from the glass in rays. Decent head. Appreciable fresh pumpkin nose, mixed up with browth sugar and an array of diffuse spices. Muted spice body, but it has a nice pumpkin ale underpinning that beckons my memory back to the first time I discovered Buffalo Bill’s Pumpkin Ale and it was pure sessionable pumpkin ale bliss. Easy finish. Nice, moderate pumpkin and spice character and drinks like a session ESB.

presario (4624) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 28, 2011
Bottle. Dark copper with a good head. Even with a cold there is a nice aroma of roast squash and a light spice. Mid-glass the aroma is more dark spice. Body is light. Light beer allows the roast pumpkin to be the star. Spice is just strong enough to complement and not get in the way. Not an all star but an honest pumpkin beer. I’d have one every year but would not want a six pack of my own. OK....having finished the bottle and tasted the growing spice and the warming body I am ready for another...next week.

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 I’ve yet tried.

italianjohn (2337) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2012
Hazy deep reddish/orange amber pour, thin off white head .... aroma of vanilla, earthy pumpkins and light pumpkin spices namely cinnamon and ginger .... taste is earthy with light pumpkin spices (light clove, ginger and mostly cinnamon) with some roasted malt qualities and a nice bitter bite in the end that lingered into the finish .... not bad not great but love the earthy pumpkin flavor they have going on

Dark reddish brown color... Aroma of pumpkin spices and nutmeg... Flavor is rich in malts and spices, not terribly sweet, less brown sugar than I would've hoped... Decent at best ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750ml Bottle. It pours a clear medium burnt orange with a large (2-3 finger) off white fizzy head that quickly diminished until there was almost nothing left, but did have a tiny bit of spotty lacing. The aroma was mild of a sweet bread malt and a light doughy yeast with notes of pumpkin, clove, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and brown sugar. The taste was lightly sweet and quite malty with a touch of brown sugar and nutmeg throughout. Then a slight bitterness crept in along with a bite of clove and a hint of vanilla, with the ending having a spicy cinnamon taste. The flavor was average in duration following the swallow, with a light spiciness lingering on the taste buds for a bit longer. Mouthfeel was somewhere between light and medium in body with a watery yet slightly dry texture and a fizzy carbonation. Overall this was a light and tasty Pumpkin Ale with a slightly sweet start, a spicy bitter middle and a nice cinnamon ending. Yep, it’s Fall alright...

Bottle. The look is a decent beige colored head, clear, and light brown in color. The smell is squash, nutmeg, allspice, sweet, and cinnamon. The taste is the same as the smell.

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.
