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.

Pours a finger of head on a hazy straw body. The aroma is pumpkin and peppers. Nice. The taste is balanced and smooth with hints of pumpkin. The texture is soft. Enjoyable.

Bottle. Cloudy, light orange with a medium head. Aroma is a pumpkin spice with strong hints of honey. Taste is sweet up front, almost a honey taste in the middle and a well balanced finish. Just a tad cloying.

Bottle. Slightly cloudy golden orange pour with a thin white head. A surprisingly intense pumpkin beer, flavour is stronger than the aroma, lots of pumpkin notes with some sweet caramel, subtle spice and slightly vegetal. Nice.

625ml bottle from the LCBO in Toronto, Ontario. Clear copper in colour with a thin white head, light lacing. The aroma is of pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, some ginger and caramel. The flavour is of lots of pumpkin, cloves and cinnamon, some alcohol, malty. Bitter mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes sweet, warming. Lots of pumpkin and spices, its alright.

Bomber. Nutmeg aroma with notes of pumpkin, cinnamon and booze. Pours orange-copper colored with a thin tan head with good retention and lacing. Starts with good pumpkin and nutmeg flavors. Finishes dry with a lot of cinnamon and boozy ending that lingers on the palate. Good at the beginning, but a little boozy for a pumpkin.
