COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Smuttynose Pumpkin Ale is our homage to the craft and heritage of America’s brewers. Recipes calling for the use of pumpkins in beer date back to early colonial times, when brewers sought to extend their supply of costly imported malt with locally grown ingredients, such as squash and "pompions."
In that spirit, we brew our ale with the addition of pumpkin to the mash, along with traditional spices to create a delicious American original.

Ferris (12106) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 4, 2015
Bottle - Lots of soapy notes and pumpkin spice. Copper gold with no heat. Tastes much like it smells. Not good.

Hopmaestro (1194) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 1, 2015
Aroma of nutmeg, cinnamon and wet bread. Taste is... well pumpkin I guess, but also nuts, herbs, Christmas and a wee bit of salt. Way too thin in the body and too much spices. Happy Halloween brothers and sisters!

Bottle from systembolaget. Pours a hazy golden colour beer with a medium head. A lot of pumpkin with notes of hops and herbs. Dry finish

J_man (910) - Tustin, California, USA - OCT 30, 2015
Cinnamon and licorice aromas from a hazy medium yellow body and white head. Good pumpkin flavor with light cinnamon and nutmeg spices. Ends kind of abruptly but leaves a dry, light cinnamon and wood taste behind. Nice pumpkin beer, if not the best out there.

ContemplateBeer (1967) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 27, 2015
12 oz. bottle from Liquor Barn (Springhurst); split with my wife. Aroma: Spice heavy aroma with very light gourd; I’d guess nutmeg and/or clove are the dominant spices. Appearance: Copper, somewhat hazy pumpkin colored pour with a foamy white head that settles into a healthy ring. Flavor: Spice forward up front with more ale characteristics as this progresses; the finish wants to be bitter, but comes off as astringent. Palate: Light body, sticky texture, flat carbonation, astringent finish. Overall: It’s not a particularly good pumpkin beer; I wouldn’t recommend it, even for fans of the style.

Samuel214 (442) - SWEDEN - OCT 24, 2015
Flaska från SB. Orange, klar vätska med tunnt vitt skum. Söta och doftiga kryddor från pumpa, en aning jäst, malt och vissa fruktigare toner och tuggummi. Luktar gott! Mellan kropp, rätt tillbakahållen inledande smak där pumpan inte är jätteframträdande. Lite lätt torr. Ganska plain. Går över i snäll efterbeska. Trevlig matöl, passade bra till mina halloumi-burgare.

Turtles (1730) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 23, 2015
355ml bottle from Systembolaget. Hazy dark golden, small white head, some lacing. Spicy aroma, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, nutmeg, herbs and grass. Crisp and light mouthfeel, medium carbonated. The taste is botanically spicy, ginger, cinnamon, herbs, pumpkin, hay and bread.

FunkyF (805) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 23, 2015
Flaska från SB. Orangegul med gulvitt skum. Kryddig doft av pumpa och kanel. En del kanel i smaken men ganska tunn på övriga smaker.

Mad_Ferret (976) - SWEDEN - OCT 22, 2015
Bottle from SB. Clear orange amber with a small off white head. Perfumy spicy nose with nutmeg, ginger, pumpkin, cinnamon and honey caramel. Initially on the dry side with spices, pumpkin and grapefruit. Then comes a caramel sweetness with warming spicy notes of ginger and christmas spice with a grapefruity bitter finish. Medium bodied, soft carbonation and slight oily texture. Feels like an IPA base beer with pumpkin and christmas spice. A bit perfumy, but fairly drinkable and easy going. It’s ok.

Pedro_Pinho (136) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 20, 2015
Bottle @ home. Pours a nice amber liquid with a beutiful head. Smells spices and pumpkin. Slightly unbalanced taste, too much perfume that makes it taste artificial. Overall, a rather disapointing brew from a, otherwise very reliable brewery.
