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.

DuffMan (9592) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, - NOV 12, 2012
Quite pale surprisingly, hazy medium gold, thick lace. Pleasantly spicy with distinct pumpkin, and a surprisingly bitter finish. Paired beautifully with our appys. Surprisingly good.

Brewhemia (208) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 18, 2016
Light amber with white head. Gentle aroma of cinnamon and cloves I think. Taste is sweet and has flavors of the spices and a bitter finish. Ok but not great I think. Haven’t tasted many pumpkin ales though so I lack reference.

larsniclas (6722) - Billdal, SWEDEN - OCT 15, 2016
Bottled from Systembolaget Hazy orange. Small head. Pumpkin and cinnamon in both aroma and flavour. Not My cup of tea.

SvanteL (306) - SWEDEN - OCT 9, 2016
Bärnstensfärgad, klar med gräddvitt skum. Det första som slår en i doften är kryddorna, muskot – ingefära kanel – sedan en fin söt fruktighet med bl.a. aprikoser och ananas, och så pumpa förstås. Smaken är fruktigt söt och kryddig och matchar doften väl, en balanserande beska ligger kvar ett bra tag. En riktigt smakrik och välbalanserad öl.

Paladares (190) - Madrid, SPAIN - OCT 2, 2016
Botella. Color ámbar brillante. No mucha espuma. Aroma no muy persistente pero destacando tonos especiados. En boca está francamente rica. Muy refrescante, toque justo de alcohol y toques a miel y especias. Muy buena.

Pours a hazy dark amber from a bottle. Immediately cloying "pumpkin spice" smell, not sure where the pumpkin flavor is, I’m not getting it. For shame New England based Smuttynose. Tastes like a spiced rum drink. Blech. Should be noted, this was stuck in a surprise sample 12 pack from the local bottle store, a little disappointed because it’s past the drink by date, they’re totally just offloading their shelf turds.
