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.

12 oz bottle. Orange amber with an almost yellowy head that lasts for the duration. Spicy nose, nutmeg, allspice, plus a decent malt backbone. Some pumpkin is there, but in the background. Awesome white lace rings. Flavor is malty, but the spiciness really steals the show. Pumpkin flavors are there as an afterthought. Hops finally assert themselves in the bitter, spicy finish. Good - one of the few pumpkins I can drink more than one of.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2006 Pours a hazy amber into a shaker. Fluffy white micro head has amazing retention. Pumpkin detergent aromas. Astringent upfront with a bitter lasting primarily citrus/clove, secondarily pumpkin finish.

Poured orange with good lace. Smells like nutmeg, pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg. Cinnamon and pumpkin dominate the taste along with a strong hop presense. Bitter palate with a strong aftertaste. Aftertaste is spicy cinnamon and hops.

Rosy orange colour, very small head. Spicy scent. More pumpkin in the flavour, but still overly spicy.

Hazy amber body with a small tan head. Sweet heavily spiced aroma with some malty hints. Very strong nutmeg, allspice and a hint of cinnamon flavor, almost overpowering.

From Florian’s Market in Auburn. My first smuttynose. Slightly murky red-orange body with half inch of off-white head. Smells sweet, spicy, and like pumpkin. Tastes sweet and spicy. You can tell there is pumpkin in this one too. A small bit of hops I think, but hardly any to speak of. Medium to heavy in body. Rather delicious and a very well-crafted beer.

Bottle from John (jjpm) Thanks! Orange colored pour, white head. Smell is pumpkin pie, sugars, sweet grains. Taste is similar, very smooth though. I dunno, Id drink this over alot of the other pumpkin beers. Awesome brewery though, I wish they got more hype than they do, but theres plenty of other mediocre brewers that brew shit that gets hyped that steals points away from smutty. Nice stuff.

Thanks crwills for bringing a 2005 vintage, still well before expiry. The aroma was yeasty and hoppy. It was orange with good lace. Fizzy carbonation. In a word, ginger - but it worked. Nice spices and balanced sweet sour that I would like in a sauce. Dry finish. Very good craftsmanship. I will have again.

I was a little dissappointed with this brew. weak flavor, aroma, and palate. not bad - but smuttynose is such a good brand and this just falls way short.\\

Nice lasting foamy head. Orangy pour. Nutmeg, cinnamon and squash. Great tasting beer. Probably shouldn’t have tried it right after mowing the lawn, but the spiciness did hit the spot.
