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.

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2013 Big pumpkin flavour.. Caramel. Spice. Dark crystalline appearance. Full bodied. So much so it really clings to your mouth from beginning to end. Even flow of flavours all the way through. Nice job.

A toasty, malty, cluster-you-know-what of pumpkin and spices. Pretty innocuous, the ale teases your palette with the idea that you should get more out of this seasonal brew. There is some light, negligible sweetness that is overshadowed by that damned burned bread flavor. Not too bad - and certainly better than Blue Moon or Jack’s Pumpkin - but that’s not entirely saying too much. When will they make a suitable pumpkin ale? The recipe may be buried alongside Jimmy Hoffa.

Bottle. Amber pour with thin head. Aroma is sweet pumpkin. Taste is pumpkin pie, baking spices and malts. Smooth finish. Nice.

mjg74 (2474) - La Mesa, California, USA - SEP 12, 2010
Bottle from BevMo. Strong spiced aroma. Lots of nutmeg and a little cinnamon. Nice spicy flavors up front. Fairly rich and smooth. Some bready maltiness. Pretty tasty pumpkin ale.

Nice roasted pumpkin aroma with a good dose of spices. Flavor is lightly sweet with more nice roasted pumpkin and fairly well-balanced spicing. Pretty nice.

This is a beer I am excited about. Nicely balanced. Nutmeg, pumpkin, cinnamon this one really reminds me of fall. Tastes like it was crafted with care. Cheers

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - SEP 11, 2010
Bottle. Pours a light brown color with a small beige head that leaves a small ring and a bit of film. Nose is sweet, nutty malts with hints of pumpkin and cinnamon. palate is smooth and sticky with a nice light carbonation. Flavor is sweet nutty pumpkin up front with a stingy light hop note in the finish.

Parrothead (292) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2010
12oz bottle. Pours a darker brown than I would have thought, huge head, wonderful spicy nose. Flavor of caramel, brown sugar, pumpkin pie spices [duh], with nutmeg predominating. Pumpkin pie in a glass, OK? Nice beer.

RSRIZZO (1850) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 10, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2010 12oz bottle poured into a Lager glass at 42°. Color is a deep amber with great carbonation and a small tight head. Aroma of spicy pumpkin pie. Body is medium with a smooth mouth feel. Flavor is spicy with big nutmeg and a bit of coriander and cinnamon. After taste lets a bitterness come out and lingers with the spices. Overall its a bit too much for me, the spiciness is a little over powering.
