COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Some might think we’re out of our gourd for making a pumpkin ale, but our Pumpkin Down is not like the others. The caramel and toffee maltiness of our Piper Down Scottish ale is the perfect backdrop for a boatload of roasted pumpkin. Just before bottling, we add a subtle amount of spice to complement, but not overwhelm, the earthy flavor. It was a smash at the brewery, and we think you’ll agree.

bhensonb (15630) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 20, 2016
Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours cola color with a tan head. For me the aroma is pretty spicy - pie spice. Near med body. Flavor starts spice, gets a touch of gourd/veg, and then goes a bit earthy/malty. Not bad, but ... Finishes rather dry and malty.
