COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Wick for Brains is our classic and painstakingly produced Fall Pumpkin Ale. Instead of simply using spice, we use real pumpkin which lends a sweetness and pumpkin flavor not found in many Pumpkin Ales. Wonderful pumpkin pie spice intertwined in an Amber Ale creates a pumpkin sensation which is elegantly crafted. Notes of Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Clove, Ginger and Allspice blend perfectly in this seasonal Ale. There are many Pumpkin Ales out there crafted by some wonderful breweries – we feel that ours stands among them and in some cases – stands apart.

Pours orange with a slight haze and a small off-white ring. Smells like pumpkin pie with a hint of alcohol. Taste is pumpkin, subtle crust, hints of spice. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Nebraska Wick for Brains finishes with a subtle lingering tanginess.

Wonderful aroma of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, typical pumpkin pie spice. Clear copper pour with a thin white head. The taste is very heavy on the pumpkin pie spice with a lot of sweetness. Really nice balance though. New for me this year. Dig it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can: Cloudy, amber-orange with a thin white head. Scent is natural pumpkin innards.....almost like cutting a real one open. Taste is straightforward raw pumpkin..a smidge of caramel malt, pumpkin-style spices. A little peppery and dry. Props for being carefully done.....very natural and not saturated with spices..... how a pumpkin beer should be.

The best pumpkin beer I’ve had this season. The glass is cinnamon rimmed which makes the aroma really great mixing with the beer’s aroma. Tastes like a pumpkin pie but not overwhelmingly so.
