Estate-grown butternut squash lends impressions of freshly baked pumpkin pie, specifically the sweetness and spice packed into its warm crust, to this medium-bodied ale.

Pours a clear golden brown on tap with fluffy off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of mild spice and bready malt. Taste follows, good low spice level, hint of sweetness. A nice mild pumpkin beer.

made w estate grown squash, with light cinnamon and spices. Smoother than most in the style. Understated yet quite good.

Tap at the brewpub. Pours "orange" with a white head. Aroma of mild pie spice, possibly with a cooked squash note. Or not. Flavor is pie spice, and seems heavy on the cinnamon. Light flavor compared to many, and itís dry compared to some. Getting a light pie burn (cinnamon). Donít think itís a hop burn. Very good "pie" ale.

On tap at the Torpedo Room. It pours a clear amber gold with a huge white head. The aroma is bready with some definite squash in there. A little cinnamon, but very low in spices. The flavor has lightly toasted malts with hints of fruit and bigger notes of squash especially in the finish. A touch of cinnamon, but like the aroma, itís pretty low compared to other pumpkin beers. It has a lightly earthy, bitter hop finish. Kind of boring.

On tap @ Torpedo Room. Clear orange pour with a white head. Nutmeg, cinnamon, and brown sugar on the nose. Nice toast and caramel, too. Flavor is big on the spice. Tons of nutmeg and cinnamon. A bit of clove and ginger. Sweet brown sugar, toast, and caramel. Strange bitterness to the finish.
