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.

rumproasts (3727) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 16, 2015
bottle. Deep golden with one finger head. Fairly standard pumpkin style ale, but it hits all the marks. Medium spice with just enough pumpkin flavor. Light sweetness, and good balance.

hfmejias (937) - Dover, Delaware, USA - APR 18, 2015
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.

dfinney23 (2159) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 23, 2015
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.
