COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Straight from the mind of the ‘Beer Admiral’ himself. Head Brewer Rick Hoffman presents a ‘traditional’ spiced pumpkin ale. Rick added over 10 lbs of pumpkin per barrel. Brewed with a touch of Maize for softness, and to fit the harvest spirit. Spiced with a custom blend of whole botanicals including cinnamon, ginger, allspice, clove and nutmeg.

A deep orange color. It had suble spice notes, but a strong pumpkin aroma and flavor. I personally prefer pumpkin ales that have more pumpkin flavor than spice. I could empty the keg on this one!!!

Big thanks to mday for getting this out my way. Poured into a tulip. Appearance is a light orange copper. Slightly opaque. Off white head and a bit of lacing. Nose is really light with only the slightest bit of pumpkin discernable. The taste is a total 180, as there are some really nice notes of fresh pumpkin, lift brown sugar, and some spicing. Good creamy feel on a medium body. Drinks quite well. I am quite impressed with my first offering from this brewery. Serving type: growler Reviewed on: 11-03-2010

ROGUE (2127) - Newark, Delaware, USA - NOV 4, 2010
On tap at brewpub. Poured a burnt orange with a dense two finger white head that left light lacing. Has a mild pumpkin pie aroma with cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg. Flavor follows the nose nicely along with a caramel sweetness and light earthy hops. The beer finishes dry and sweet. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy with light carbonation.

Fairly standard aroma, pumpkin spice and a little pie like sweetness. Pours amber orange thin head. The flavor is mostly pumpkin spice and sweet-ish pumpkin pie notes too. Well done, simple yet effective.
