COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This frothy ale is made with 9 different specialty malts, 100% English Fuggle hops, and nearly 300 pounds of real pumpkin. During and after the boil, we add a subtle blend of fresh-ground spices, resulting in a very smooth and malty, complex ale with noble hop and spice aroma. We hope you will get a chance to enjoy this limited offering, and no, itís not just a glass of grandmaís pumpkin pie, itís still a beer.

Had this on tap at the brewery. Poured a beautiful orange amber. Caramel and cinnamon in the nose, but not overly spiced. This is one of the better pumpkin ales Iíve had ... most tend toward over spicing them. Lingering taste of cinnamon, nutmeg and cardamum in the finish. A nice one.

One of the better pumpkin beers I have tried. Not overly spicy, yet with enough pumpkin to make it a pumpkin beer. It pours a nice golden orange with a decent white head. Pumpkin and spices mingle with the grainy malt to comprise the aroma. Flavour is malty with pumpkin and spices to round it all out.

The beer pours dark amber caramel with a small bubbly off white head. The aroma is amazing - a bit sweet with lots of Thanksgiving spices blended well to please the nose. The flavor is malty, a bit sweet and pumpkiny, with some nice dark wheat almost light brown sugar or caramel notes to settle on the palate. Medium smooth body as well.

Year old bottle: Faint aroma of cinnamon and clove. Clear copper, floaties, no head. Clove initially, pleasantly sweet. Cinnamon finish. Well balanced and one of the best proportions of spices Iíve had in a beer. Cinnamon is most prominent. I didnít detect pumpkin, which is perfectly fine by me. Holds up surprisingly well after a year.

10th October 2008. GABF. Clear gold beer. Dry palate. Spicy but not overwhelmingly so and allows a little pumpkin to come through.

unclemattie (4034) - Georgia, USA - DEC 10, 2009
12oz bottle. Aroma of freshly baked pumpkin pie. Deep caramel, appropriately spiced with pie spice, and a nice noble hops with a touch of complex malt (aroma of the pie crust). Pours Medium orange, white head. Looks medium bodied. A nice appearance. Flavor of spiced squash. Wow. Lots of squash flavor. A nice malt character in the finish, well balanced with a mellow hop bitterness. I think most of the flavor and a touch of the bitterness comes out of the pumpkin. Overall, Very flavorful. A touch of nutmeg and cinnamon spice in the finish and not too overwhelming. A very nice surprise. I love pumpkins!

zach8270 (3219) - Henrietta, New York, USA - NOV 17, 2009
(bottle - 12 oz) Clear copper pour with almost no head or lacing. Mild aroma of pumpkin, cinnamon, and allspice. Flavor is a very sweet and smooth blend of pumpkin and spices. Pumpkin pie flavor is light as is the spice. Well balanced and one element doesnít overpower the others. Nice.

Loved this! Not too sweet but a faint fruity smell, nice foamy head but not too frothy with a nice lacing. Great deep brown color and very fragrant. I thought on tap this was very pricy @ $4.00 a glass but I did have 3 so it must have been good.
