COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tastes like pumpkin pie in a glass! This medium-bodied amber ale is made with 100 pounds of fresh pumpkin and spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and allspice. A seasonal favorite!

Spices are one note and the beer lacks body. Tastes overwhelmingly like ginger and cinnamon. I prefer a creamier pumpkin beer.

Tap at Haven Pasadena. Pours a clear golden with good, white foam. Nose is puppy breath, iodine, seaweed. Taste is intense nutmeg/cinnamon/clove medley. Palate is too dusty, almost like a spoonful of cinnamon.

It does indeed taste like pumpkin pie. Pours a dark orange. Spices play on the nose. It follows through into the taste. An old school simple pumpkin beer. Sampled at Union Station at the end of L.A. Beer Week.

brokensail (11540) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 12, 2011
A: The beer pours a slightly hazed amber color with q dense off-white head. S: A very strong spice note. Lots of cinnamon and nutmeg with a little bit of spiced apple cider. Some toasted malt and bread with a light grass note. A touch of savory spices and fruits, interestingly enough. T: Fairly sweet with lots of bread and apple cider notes. Quite spicy, definitely a lot of cinnamon, all spice, nutmeg, and some clove. A little bit of bread and caramel. Not a bad pumpkin ale. M: Medium bodied with a medium level of carbonation. O: The apple note was a bit distracting, but otherwise it’s pretty decent.

On tap. Lasting creamy off-white with a hazy orange body. Aromas of molasses, vegital, spice, soggy grain. Light vanilla, cinnamon, orange peel, nutmeg, allspice. Taste is grain, graham cracker, vanilla, and spice. Lively bubbles and a dry mouthfeel.
