COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our brewer (with help from the folks in our kitchen) baked 30 pumpkins for this pumpkin-colored brew. Its rich malt character, smooth, full palate, and sweet finish are complemented by a blend of six spices, including cinnamon, ginger, and cloves.

Tap at Titletown. Filtered copper-amber. Big, excessive head. Quite a delicious pumpkin ale, rich yet clean and drinkable. Pronounced spicing, but also has a nice real pumpkin quality. A style I find hard to give hug scores to, but this is a solid example.

boto (1826) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Draught @ Brewpub: This one pours a crystal clear orange tinged amber color. There was almost no white head on it, and it left no lacing. The aroma is nice. Get a good whiff of pumpkin pie spice (cinnamon and nutmeg), but it is not overpowering. Some caramel malts also. The taste is good. Minimal amount of the caramel sweetness, some spice (not overdone). Very smooth. A nice beer.

A milder pumpkin ale which is welcomed. Doesn’t beat you over the head with spices. Nice orangeish color.

tmoreau (2288) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - OCT 23, 2010
On tap at the brewpub bar, and requested a czech-pils serving. The color was a deep, copper/amber, with modest, off white head foam, and streaks and spots of lacing. The aroma was sweetness and a variety of pie spices, with clove being dominant. The flavor was similar, with the pumpkin lending added character and body. A rarity to find actual pumpkin as part of the recipe for this type of beer, and this one was nicely balanced. Move over Pumking!

Petrucci914 (910) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 14, 2010
Pours an amber color with a thin off-white head. Aroma is pumpkin, ginger, cinnamon, and various fall spices. Taste has nice spices up front and a medium pumpkin taste. Not overly powerful and not too cloying. Definetely a pumpkin beer I could have a few of - most pumpkins are pretty strong and reserved for a single pint now and then.

Crushed with Jakebra and co. at the brewery. 2nd best pumpkin I’ve had, after Lakefront’s. Good spices and yumminess. Wouldn’t want to drink it all the time, but it’s better than the average crap.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 17, 2008
I just tried this yesterday right when they tapped it at the pub. A clean, hazy orange colour with a small beige head. Has a very pleasent spiced aroma and pumpkin pie. Cloves are noticeable in the initial taste, and a touch of ginger in the finish. Not overly rich, a lightly carbonated, friendly mouthfeel and sweet flavors. One of the nicer pumpkin ales I have had in a long time.

Skyview (5150) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - NOV 23, 2007
On draught at the brewpub/restaurant in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Pours a clear copper amber brew with a creamy off-white head that has some good retention and lasting lacing. Aroma of light caramel malt, a hint of nutmeg, cinnamon, and cloves. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonation with flavors of light caramel malt, some flowery hops, nutmeg and some earthy spice. Finish is semi-sweet with a good balance of spice and caramel malt with pumpkin pie filling. One of the better balanced pumpkin ales I’ve tried.

Juelze (1137) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 3, 2007
Appearance of rich golden color with white head. Aroma is of ginger, light cinnamon and malt. Taste is light ginger, clove, cinnamon, and sweet malt. Palate is spice up front which fades quickly and leaves a clean dry finish. One of the better pumpkin beers out there.
