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.

This is a really nice beer. Refreshing with a golden look and nice aroma. A nice beer overall

12 oz bottle from notes. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have mild pumpkin, the usual suspects when it comes to spices, bready with some light earthy character toward the finish. Decent, but there are many more out there that are better.

from Mondial de la Bière 2013, Mulhouse - pours a cloudy dark orange beer under a long lasting pale beige foam; fair aroma of pumpkins, light earthy; pretty sweet and with a good malt backbone; fairly tasty and with a light earthy bitterness; long aftertaste of pumpkin - pretty nice for this kind of beer

This autumn brew has a good spicy pumpkin aroma. The flavor is of sweet malt, mild spice, and more hops bitterness than is typical for pumpkin ales. It’s fairly good, just nothing special.

Pours cloudy golden orange. Heavily carbonated, lots of head and lacing. Flavors are brown sugar, honey, slight citrus, and spices. Tastes sweet, with nutmeg, cinnamon, and brown sugar. A traditional pumpkin--nothing special.

Good tasting Pumpkin Ale. I think it’s because it’s made with the puree that it gives it such taste. Pumpkin and Cinnamon. This is what I’m looking for in a Pumpkin Ale. Good beer.

Pour is a cloudy copper with a large white head. Aroma is a decent nutmeg, cinnamon and pumpkin combo. Flavor is just about the same. Nice mix of the spices and a decent pumpkin flavor. Not as over the top as some and it is a bit watery but this will satisfy your pumpkin need when all other pumpkin beers have disappeared.

Not a bad pumpkin case but not one of the best pumpkins I really don't like the spices ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

8/19/2010. From bottle. Amber color with a white head. Fruity aromas with malt and of course pumpkin. Spicy and pumpkin flavors with malt and light hops. Not bad for the style.
