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.

Foil-capped screwtop bomber. You don’t see many of those, and with good reason.

Pours hazy orange with a creamy but descending white head. Sweet nutmeg aroma, maybe a little cinnamon in there somewhere? Sweet full body, spicy pumpkin pie taste, not too sweet, but sneaking up on it.

Bottled 650ml. -at O’Hara Zagreb. Golden coloured, minimal white head, light perfumy nose. Sweet malty, alcoholic, unbalanced presence of cinnamon and sugar with some caramel in rather sweet and sticky finish. Not my type.

As orange a color as I’ve seen in a beer, this pours with quickly faded head. Immediate traditional pumpkin spices on the nose - pretty close to the pie I love! Flavor/mouth-fee is quite a ride... initial pumpkin quickly turns to burst of yeasty, slightly sour alcoholic funk, which in turn, quickly dissolves to a clean finish and lasting mellow aftertaste.

Nice amber color. Great fall pumpkin smell. Fresh taste and nice pumpkin finish that makes for great drinking by a fire in the fall.

Bold pumpkin flavor with a ton of nutmeg, perhaps too much. Thick head, assertive spicyness lingers.
