COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Smuttynose Pumpkin Ale is our homage to the craft and heritage of Americaís 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.

I have to say this was a surprise. The smell is wonderful -- pumpkins and cinnamon. For autumn what could be better. The taste was a nice change with spices and pumpkin. I will drink this throughout the fall.

Pours with a huge white head that leaves hardly any lace. Hazy, light amber color. Serious pumpkin pie nose. Light - medium carbonation. Flavor is pumpkin pie, starts sweet and malty, finishes malty, fizzy and a hint of hops. Very good spiced beer. Available in supermarkets in NH for $5.99/6-pak..

Tap at Andyís. Ornage and clear, white head. Spicy Christmas-nutmeg aroma. Pumpkin pie flavor. Decent maltiness, no bitterness. There are better examples.

Smells like pumpkins, not as spicy as I would have wanted. Pours orange with a white head. Tastes like pumpkins but tastes too much like alcohol. It was smooth though, but I donít know something wasnít right about it.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2008 [12 oz. bottle] Very bright orange color with a creamy looking white head. The aroma is a delicious blend of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and pumpkin pie spice. Smells exactly like a pumpkin pie. Taste begins with a sweet malty taste mixed with hops and gives way to a smooth malty finish. The flavors of pumpkin and nutmeg and possibly cloves are prevalent throughout and last for a while in the palate after the beer is gone. Very tasty beer.

I guess with number 1000 coming up, Iím doing a mop up. This is not a style I like, but I like this one. Looks like honey in a glass, small to no head. Flavor is like a good pumpkin pie, cinnamon, netmeg, and pumpkin. One is about all I want, but Iíll enjoy the one.
