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.

Chaneybr (52) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 17, 2013
I poured it into a stemmed pint-glassesque receptacle that one of my wife’s friends gave me as a present. Weird.... Ap: Bright orange, well carbonated, and with a slight hazy foam formation for a head. Ar: Nutmeg, brown sugar, and maybe a touch of cinnamon. T: Pretty hoppy and bitter for a pumpkin ale, and the gourd itself has yet to make an appearance. This is much more of a shrill hop zing style of pumpkin brew, as opposed to Pumking or Schlafly which are more dark, rich malt based beers. P: Pretty creamy overall, and I can detect a mild alcohol burn which is not in the least bit offensive. O: While this strikes me as more of a pumpkin IPA rather than a dark pumpkin concoction, Smutty does IPAs better than most....so....I dig it!

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured cloudy, amber, with a nice off white head that left beautiful lacing all over the glass. Aroma obviously some pumpkin, malts and some yeast. Taste is sweet, malty, spices and pumpkin... Drinkable, alcohol is there but it is a easy to enjoy beer.

Lost rating from last fall. Nice spice aroma. Hoppier than the typical pumpkin ale, at the expense of the pumpkin itself, it seems. Not bad but there are far better choices out there.

barbillon (54) - Pesaro, ITALY - JAN 30, 2015
Birra molto carbonizzata di color arancio. Si nota subito l’intensità appena messa in bocca, noto un disequilibrio tra alcol e sapori di cereali, zucca, fieno. Diminuendo l’alcol forse sarebbe stato meglio. Smuttynose può fare di meglio sicuramente.
