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.

Expected a bit more after hearing good reviews. Would drink again but definitely not worth it to buy more than a 6er

Easy drinking pumpkin ale with just the right amount of spices. Normally the pumpkin ales tend to be too heavy with the spices, but this beer is done perfect for the style. Very much enjoyed this Smuttynose offering.

olsvammel (3578) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 31, 2014
Bottle from Systembolaget. Spicy smell with christmasy spices, cinnamon and so on. Similar taste, the spices are very dominant and with the thin body they become too much. It would have been better with some more residual sweetness or less spices.
