COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In our pursuit to bring you the most flavourful and unique beers possible, we are proud to release this tasty autumn ale. Handcrafted with an assortment of specialty malts and hops, we added a generous amount of pumpkin directly into the brew. Combine this with hints of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and allspice, and youve got a beer that you wont soon forget. Rich, satisfying and slightly spicy, our seasonal ale goes perfectly with your favourite dessert or traditional feast. But like fall, Pumpkin Ale comes but once a year!

Hazy deep golden pour with an average off-white head that leaves a little lace. Hmm...less pumpkin pie in the face than others of the style. Has a more gingerbread with pumpkin nose. Quite the same on the palate. Surprisingly drinkable for the style.

KoNrRiI (1319) - rhus, DENMARK - OCT 17, 2015
0.65 bottle. Delicately hazy, gold color and a large, thick, white head. Aroma of spices is foremost with pumpkin and pale malts coming in second. Taste is balanced and does not strike with an avalanche of spices but rather slowly introduces all the components: pumpkin, spices, pale malts, some yeasts, cinnamon, carnations. Medium body, creamy texture, and a very soft carbonation. Finish is short, delicately sweet and just as unimposing as the rest. Overall a pleasant beer, an unusual breakout from the sea of pumpkin ales which have a more pungent aroma than pumpkins themselves.

ciocanelu (1728) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JAN 3, 2017
Hazy yellow color with off-white head. Aroma has mostly spices associated with pumpkin pie but not really raw pumpkin. Taste has some spiced biscuits, grains and earthy hops with a light bitterness on the finish. Light body, medium carbonation. Overall its decent but nothing really special.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 29, 2007
Cest What Fall Fest. Aroma is pumpkin puree, with nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, and cloves, orange/amber, wearing a small off-white head. Taste is a milder version of the aromatics for pumpkin pie filling. Medium bodied, balanced, bitter, dry, very tasty, pleasant spicy aftertaste. Very good, like pumpkin pie in a glass. Glad to see these folks trying new stuff!
