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.

A dark amber to red pour with off-white head. The aroma is filled with pumpkin, spices, and some caramel. The full body is creamy with a sweet taste. The slightly roasted finish has some bitterness.

Butters (3763) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 1, 2010
Pours a nice dark clear burnt copper with not much by the way of head. Nice cinamin and pumpkin and caramel malt backbone. One of the best pumpkin beers i’ve ever had actually. Very nice.

Brown with a little haze. Good, lacing head. Light aroma of brown sugar. Flavor is nutmeg, a huge quantity of nutmeg. I do not get the pumpkin, or what is typically pumpkin pie spice. Very dry in the finish.

dmac (4004) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 27, 2010
12 oz bottle from a mixed 12 pack purhcased at Spirits Brick. Poured a really nice looking clear deep red body with an average sized foamy light beige head. Aroma of spices, vanilla, grains and a touch of butter. Fuller bodied with average tight bubbly carbonation and not much of an aftertaste. Flavors of grains, spices, a touch of chocolate and a hint of pumpkin. This one needs a big time boost on the pumpkin.

Pours brownish orange, with little to no tan head. The medium body gives way to a rather pleasing bouquet of spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin, malts and the ever slightest tinge of noble hops. Pumpkin Ales are best served luke-warm/ room temperature to detect the variety of flavors. While not the greatest pumpkin ale I’ve had, its worth your attention for the price (the Sam Adams Harvest variety pack is second only to their Winter Variety). A nice brew to enjoy on a lazy fall evening.

Light aroma of spices, nutmeg mostly. Slight pumpkin scent. Malty. Appearance is a dark brownish red, small/medium head. Crystal clear. Taste is very malty and spicy. Pumpkin is there but not overpowering. Much nutmeg, some clove. Sweet with a bit of chocolate to keep thing balanced. Palate is medium. Spices, pumpkin and chocolate linger. Overall not bad. I dont like flavored beers, but it came in a sampler pack. Glad that the pumpkin wasnt overwhelming. Probably a good example for the style. Maybe a little boring though.

Everyone wants to make a pumpkin it seems...Jim did a pretty good job. He added the spices that everyone expects from a pumpkin pie and it rounds out the taste. Nice strong malt that the pumpkin oddly sits nicely in. Mild hop - he keeps the focus on the pumpkin. Close to the best you can want from a pumpkin ale, which is what it is.

12 oz bottle. Pours amber orange with a nice beige head that lingers. Smells of clove, pumpkin, and nutmeg are first, followed by cinnamin and pepper. Tastes very earthy, hints of pumpkin, grass, and allspice. Aftertaste is more seasong, like clove, nutmeg, and cinnamin. Even a little peppery. Nice crisp body. A little watery, but nice drinkabilty.
