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.

@ Havregatan 141026. Bottle (355 ml) from Systembolaget (27:-). Spicy and some grassy notes, medium sweet, medium body with an oily texture. The finish is dry, bitter and spicy. Not my favourite style.

gyllenbock (4878) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 26, 2014
Bottle from Systembolaget. Hazy golden with a white head. Aroma and taste of malt, spices (mainly cinnamon and nutmeg), fruit and clove. Quite sweet and with fairly low carbonation. I am not the biggest fan of Pumpin beers.

MSBrindbergs (382) - Solna, SWEDEN - OCT 25, 2014
Flaska från SB. Grumlig kopparvätska med vitt skum. Doftar sött av pumpa samt kryddigt. Smakar mindre pumpa men mer kryddigt. Funkar fint till en linsgryta! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kidmartinek (3740) - austin, Texas, USA - OCT 24, 2014
Deep copper colour. Lasting white head. Aroma is really spicy and sharp. Pumpkin flavors are obvious but struggle through the rest of the spice/herb funk.

GenDV138 (1474) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - OCT 21, 2014
12 oz bottle poured into a Spiegelau tulip. 6.45% ABV stamped on the neck. Clear golden orange with just over a finger of off-white head. Aromas of light pumpkin, spices, bits of herbs. Tastes of pumpkin, light spices, hints of nutmeg, some floral hops and crisp notes. Medium body with a dry finish. Simple pumpkin ale but solid.

Beerenberger (1492) - Fischer, Texas, USA - OCT 21, 2014
Typical pumpkin beer spices - nutmeg, cinnamon and allspice greet the nose while the pour is a hazy pumpkin orange with a lasting white ring and sheet lacing. I taste a hop bitterness that lasts from start to finish with the spices kicking in near the end. Crisp and refreshing. Medium body with high carbonation. Overall, even thought it is refreshing, the pump flavors, sadly, are all but MIA.

Clear amber liquid with a white head that’s one finger high.

Nose: Nutmeg, spice, pumpkin, nuts, cinnamon and ginger.
Taste: Pumpkin pie and spice. Malt and a bit of salt.
Mouth: Medium body with little carbonation. A little bitterness at the end.

Not bad but then not that great either. It’s ok but not more...

Great example of a pumpkin beer. I really enjoyed this one and will buy again. Captured fall and pumpkin without it fasting artificial.
