COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ahh, fall. That colorful time of year when America piles into the family station wagon on a mission to pick out the prettiest pumpkin in the patch to take home and carve a scary face into. well, we must admit we’ve never been too good at carving. But we’re pretty good at turning a simple pumpkin into a tasty pumpkin ale. And that’s exactly what we’ve done here. This one’s got the right amount of spice - just enoughto inspire anybody to give pumpkin carving one more try. So, if you’d excuse us, the family wagon awaits.

EithCubes (5239) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Bottle. Nose is lightly malty, lightly pumpkiniferous, but heavy on the fall spices (nutmeg seems to be the far and away strongest to me) and lightly earthy. Clear orange-golden pour with a lot of CO2 and a foamy beige head. Taste is lightly sweet with very little bitterness, more cinnamon donut comes through, a bit earthier , but otherwise it’s still standard autumn spice soup and light malt, perhaps with a bit of icing/sugar. Medium-full body, refreshing, repeatable.

kramer (5360) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear orange body under a small fizzy beige head that faded to a thin film. The nose is pretty typical for a Pumpkin Ale, a little too much spice for my tastes, but a nice slightly sweet Munich maltiness. The flavor is a little hot from the heavy cinnamon and nutmeg spicing, tempered a bit by the sweet maltiness, but it still comes off as too heavy on the spice. Medium bodied with a little mouth coating stickiness. Fine fizzy carbonation level. A little better than some Pumpkin beers, but still not a stunner.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Bottle:   Spicy start, a touch of clove in this one.   Moderately spiced there after, not light and not bright unfortunately.   Middle of the road, also in body.   Clove is the strongest aspect of this one.   Wished it were a little more robust tho.   Not bad.

A beautiful beer on all fronts. This is a hidden gem. Brew is crisp, clean and very east to drink. Subtle hints of pumpkin meticulously added to this brew. This beer has the perfect hints of pumpkin without being over the top with nutmeg, spices and all that other crap that they add to these seasonal pumpkins. Pop a couple of these, sit back and watch some football!

Bottles from Capone’s and Whole Foods. Pours clear medium copper with off-white head and a carbonated body. Nose is pumpkin puree, squashy, with nutmeg, allspice. Tastes of pumpkin, malt, caramel, pumpkin spice. Somewhat on the sweet side, and complex and enjoyable.

dmac (4677) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - SEP 29, 2013
12oz bottle from my bday lunch trip to Capones. Poured a watery burnt orange with a quick fading smaller mostly white foamy head that fades rather quickly. Aroma is odd, some decent pumpkin spice upfront but followed by wet dog and some old wet pine needles along with mud. Palate is bigger then the appearance, medium mouthfeel with some stronger carbonation and an average duration on the aftertaste only due to the strong pumpkin spicing. Flavor is a bit better than the aroma. Notes of notes of pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg, some all spice and squash. Meh I suppose I could drink all 12oz but why bother when I have so many beers to rate.
