COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottled (BB 11/2010)
Clear pinky color, small white head. Strong pumpkin aroma with gingerbread. Flavor is similar: pumpkin, nutmeg, gingerbread. Quite thin palate for 9% beer .. not showing much alcohol. I am not big fan of pumpkin beers, but this is reasonably balanced.
