COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Actual pumpkin is used to create this malty amber ale. Based on St. Louisí first pumpkin beer brewed in 1996, it is spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg and will remind you of pumpkin pie in a glass!

Draft served in a flight at the brewpub. Pours a slightly burnt orange color with a small khaki head that settles into a ring and film and laces the glass. "Pumpkin pie in a glass" isnít quite the best deScriptor here because the use of actual pumpkin makes it a little more earthy and vegetal, where others use a bigger malt backbone and more spices to make theirs bigger and sweeter. This one also has your usual slate of spices - cinnamon and nutmeg, namely - and the malts are a bit lighter but still provide enough of a satisfying backbone. Itís all in balance, too. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation. Nicely done pumpkin ale.

jandd1983 (3740) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - OCT 18, 2012
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 (11180) - 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.
