Smashed Pumpkin is a big-bodied beer with a light coppery orange color and pleasing aroma of pumpkin and nutmeg. The OG and final Alc./Vol. provide the structure and body. Pale Ale, Wheat and Light Munich Malts combine with the natural tannin in pumpkin and the delicate spiciness of Willamette and Hallertau Hops to balance the sweetness of the fruit. To fully enjoy all the flavors, this ale is best drunk at 55 degrees Fahrenheit. Smashed Pumpkin pairs well with sharp cheeses, nuts, lamb, hearty stews and desserts like flan or pumpkin pie. Chefs find this an excellent beer to cook with in dishes such as braised short ribs.

Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass. Light foam that dissipates very quickly to a ring around the edge. The color is a wonderful crystal clear orange. One of the best looking pumpkin ales I’ve seen. Nice scent. Prominent pumpkin and spice. Slightly sweet. The smell is mostly gone after a few minutes. The taste is primarily pumpkin and spice. Somewhat bitter but I can’t tell if it’s hops or the spices. The mouth feel is unusually light for a 9% beer. It drinks almost like a soda. No noticeable alcohol taste. Overall this is a good pumpkin ale but not as good as I expected. Does not stand out in the crowd. The light mouth feel is unusual. **The label is very cool. It alone is enough to convince me to buy it. Very nice work.

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2015 I get more of a space baked apple then pumpkin in the nose. Pours a copper color and rests in glass with a amber tint. Active carbonation, fizzy short lived head, slight foam ring through out drink, some lacing. Smooth soft palate, medium feel. Flavor overall good. Mild pumpkin with moderate spicing. Not amongst my favorite pumpkin beers.

22oz purchased in California. Pours cloudy copper with medium head that fades quickly. Nose has slight oxidative note that clears in a bit. Spices dominate the ale underneath, but malt eventually appears. Hop notes are well matched to malt bill and stand up to spices. Not a big fan of any spiced pumpkin brews, but this is a well done example

HammerTroll (848) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 12, 2015
Hazy amber color, medium sized white head. Spicy aroma, caramel, some malty sweetness, resin. Taste of caramel, pumpkin, spices, lots of sugar, some cinnamon notes. Creamy texture, medium body, soft carbonation. Extremely long spicy caramel and pumpkin finish. Alcohol is very well hidden. This was my first pumpkin beer ever, it was really hard to even think about what to expect, but I could get used to them real quick.
(Vrutak 0,65l bottle)

Old rating. Disappointing pumpkin beer....lots of nutmeg and spices. Decently sweet and malty. Just generic boring pumpkin beer.

An enjoyable beer I picked up in Boston. Definitely worthwhile to try, but not a standout in the pumpkin beer category.

Bombré; poured an orange Amber color with an off white head. Aroma of rotten veggies, spices and booze. A pretty spicy upfront with a doze of sweetness. Lingering finish. A bit medicinal
