A perennial favorite at our Brewery Halloween party, this reddish amber ale is perfect for fall. Real pumpkin adds a full body and sweetness, while deep roasted malts lend a toasty finish to this subtly spiced brew.

Poured a deep reddish amber with a modest head and lacing. Aroma was slight fruity and nutty with slight sweetness. Taste possess a maltiness with a moderate pumpkin and light spices. The finish was of mild hops. Palate was decent. Overall, a very good pumpkin ale.

Bottle@ trailer, from a harvest mix pack. Clear copper kettle color with ivory head. Phenolic pumpkin pie spice, pumpkin meat, caramel aromas. Medium bodied with average co2. Pie spice, toasted pumpkin meat flavors with some lightly sweet caramel___decent.

Amber pour with little aroma. Slight spice flavor with little pumpkin anywhere to be found. Decent ale with an off flavor. I wouldn’t drink this one again.

Bottle. Very little aroma. Very high in carbonation, which is the dominant feature. To me, the flavor is not as bold or spicy as I’ve read, but there are some harvest related flavors in there, just more subtle. A fine beer to drink casually in season, especially with food, but not if you really want a unique fall flavor.

deyholla (6660) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 23, 2014
Bottle. Pours a amber with a grayish brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a pumpkin and bread combination with a bread backbone. Flavor has a a bit more sweetness with notes of bread, pumpkin and spice.

Clear red with tan head. Malty dark fruit aroma. Pumpkin spice flavor with a fruity tartness. Light bodied and watery. Might be better if it wasn’t so watery and had a fuller flavor.

Pours a clear medium-to-deep amber with a short finger of white head diminishing rapidly to nothing, no lacing. Nose is pumpkin and spice, brown sugar. Taste is sweet and spicy pumpkin, brown sugar, mild bitter. Medium to full body, moderate to high sustained carbonation, and a somewhat sticky finish. Well, I’ll be: a pumpkin ale that isn’t terrible - will wonders never cease? This just might be the best pumpkin ale I’ve ever tried! (Not that that bar was set all that high, mind you, but still…) Decently spicy, with a fairly good pumpkin flavour. It’s a bit too sweet, and that adversely affects the finish, but not bad at all. Ultimately, I wouldn’t say no to another - and I think that’s the first time I’ve said that about a pumpkin ale.

Tap. Sweet. Not the best pumpkin beer but nothing repulsive either. Wouldn’t buy in bottles.

hopmelt (195) - Painesville TWP, Ohio, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Pours clear deep amber, very thin tan head, light thin lacing. Aroma pumpkin, slight roast, cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar. Taste sweet pumpkin, roast malt, almost a marshmallow flavor, cinnamon and nutmeg dominate the slightly spicy finish. Mouthfeel towards the full end of medium body, low carbonation, slight spicy bite, mostly sweet finish, although spice lends a bit of balance. Overall nice beer, similar to most pumpkin beers, but a bit fuller and has the slight roasted pumpkin and marshmallow note, would be a good beer around a crisp fall camp fire.
