COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Actual pumpkin is used to create this malty, amber Ale. Spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg, it will remind you of pumpkin pie in a glass!

Draft at amber with white head. Aroma is nutmeg forward, cloves, and pumpkin. Flavors are sweet caramel, pumpkin mash, nutmeg and cinnamon, thin body, fizzy feel. Not bad.

Sampled at the brewpub. This is one of the better pumpkin brews in the area. It poured a dark copper-amber color with a white head. The aroma was lots of pumpkin with a little malt in the background. The taste was of pumpkin, clove and malt. Excellent finish with a nice pumpkin aftertaste. Very tasty.

dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - NOV 1, 2011
Sample from beer fest in Augusta. Poured a copper color with a little hue to it. Smaller white head that was gone rather quick. Aroma was dominated by the pumpkin, with some nutmeg coming through. Flavor was spices, cinnamon and pumpkin in the finish. The more pumpkin beers I drink, the more I start to like them. This one was decent.

Dogbrick (7966) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 14, 2010
Sample at the brewpub. The beer is a dark copper-amber color with a thin off-white head that diminishes to a film eventually. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Pumkin aroma with some malt in the background. Medium body with flavors of pumpkin, clove, and malt. The finish is nicely spiced with a lingering pumpkin aftertaste. Above average overall.

I like that this has more pumpkin flavor than many Iíve tasted. The spice flavor is a bit much, though--itís unbalanced. Itís a good effort, not great, but enjoyable.

Growler from the brewery. Color is copper. This beer is great for the style. Every sip tastes like a bite of pumpkin pie. Flavors of nutmeg, corriander, and yes pumpkin come through. Very drinkable, not too sweet or artificial, a great fall beer.

Rating 1074, on tap at the brewery. Light ruby golden copperish with a mediumd sized medium lasting white head. Nose lots of malts and sharp hops as compared to the pumpkin spices. The taste is initially zingy hoppy but then moves very nicely to a malty, gentle pumpkin feel. Spices are nicely blended and very drinkable. As compared to other largely distributed seasonal pumpkin beers this is much better and actually drinkable and would be easy to do in large volumes. Some of square ones stuff can be a bit different and this really resonates well with me. Strong work!

vyvvy (3951) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - NOV 3, 2006
Sampled at the brewpub. Poured light copper with a wispy white head. Aroma had pumpkin and spices with some sweetness and maybe a bit of another squash variety. Medium body with quite a bit of effervescent carbonation that worked for the style. Taste starts with rich amber malt with authentic tasting pumpkin. There were some spices on the initial taste, but even more on the finish. Finish had clove, nutmeg and cinnamon that give quite a blast and then as that tapers off there is an taste that seems like a blend of pumpkin and orange peel. Until this year I liked no pumpkin beers at all, now I think Iím up to a total of two, this being one of them.

My final taster from 10/14. Filtered and golden. Trace layer of off-white head. Strong cinnamon nose. Strong cinnamon flavor. Somewhat astringent. Medium bodied. Not the best example of the pumpkin niche. Of the spices, only the cinnamon stands out, and it really stands alone. Somewhat one deminsional. Quite a let down, I must admit.
