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.

olsvammel (3885) - 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.

JMerritt (1867) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - OCT 28, 2014
Bottled. Pours bright orange with a medium sized tan head. Rather weak aroma for a pumpkin ale - flat cinnamon, vanilla cookies, very mild clove. Cinnamon and nutmeg is a bit more pronounced in the flavor, which is overall only mildly sweet and a bit acidic. Finish has a little bit of bright berry, almost like a cranberry or dark cherry - likely the combination of alcohol and lightly toasted sweet malts playing tricks. Heavy carbonation, too much for my taste.

SamTheBarrel (544) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - OCT 28, 2014
355ml brown bottle. Appearance is hazy orange with a medium sized beige head that reduced quickly, leaving a little lacing on the glass. Aroma of pumpkin, cinnamon, caramel. Flavour of pumpkin, spices, herbs and a hint of orange and caramel. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter. Palate is medium bodied, soft texture and average carbonation. Overall quite good but a little too thin bodied for a Pumpkin Ale, I would have liked it stronger and spicier.

A fairly average pumpkin ale. Thin on the mouthfeel, vegetable taste and feel. Moderately spiced, with cinnamon, nutmeg and clove.
