COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

5000 (6241) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 5, 2011
Bottle:   Deep amber, moderate frothy white head, spotty lacing.   Strong clove and nutmeg on the nose.   Similar tongue, very spicy I might add.   A little mealy on the backside.   A little bit of honeycomb like cereal too.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Lingering clove and nutmeg, and maybe even some Bit O Honey like candy.   More flavorful than I thought it would be.   Not too shabby.   Thanks Bob!

gpekar (463) - Florida, USA - FEB 26, 2011
Poured crystal clear copper red with a tall foamy beige head. You can hear the bubles popping as the head reduces to just a film over time, leaving a light amount of lacing. There are some carbonation bubbles rising up in the glass. The aroma is mild with scents of clove, nutmeg and caramel malt. The beer has a lightly thick texture and the flavors of clove, pumpkin spice and nutmeg, all of which are mild. Some caramel malt sweetness comes along in the middle, followed by a slightly dry finish.

wlajwl (3813) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - FEB 12, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2013 Has the clove and cinnamon, as well as pumpkin flavor to it, not overly on the vegetables. Has more actual pumpkin flavor to it than others in the style and a little sweeter, pretty good.

DocLock (7828) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 7, 2011
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours copper with medium off-white head. Nose is caramel malt and pumpkin spice. Tastes caramel malty, with the pumpkin taking a back door to the malt, and fairly smooth.

Hudspart (538) - Byron Center, Michigan, USA - FEB 5, 2011
Ok pumpkin ale. Relatively thick with pumpkin and I believe nutmet. Starts out decent, but gets very bland as the beer goes along. There are much better pumpkin beers out there.

Dacrza (508) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JAN 9, 2011
Situation: Halloween Eve watching Penn State-Michigan; still no defense for us, RichRod! Glassware: Yuengling pint... Appearance: Dark chestnut body (darker than expected with the typically stubborn Sam Adams off-white head... Aroma: pumpkin spice leaps forth; some other underlying hops and spices are present as well... Palate: medium-bodied, lightly oily in texture; inoffensive in its profile; a flourish early, flat late... Taste: more than a bit malty, although the pumpkin spice may have something to do with that; enjoyable softened by the malt profile... Overall: I have little interest in vegetable-infused eer, but for a holiday, I will admit that the beer as the maltiness to substitute for an Octoberfest and stand out a bit in its uniqueness...a second bottle tonights reveals a bit more drinkability and pleasure...

smells like hands holding pennies. nutmeg, grain, not too pumpkin-y, but at least it doesn’t taste like butter.
