COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Smuttynose Pumpkin Ale is our homage to the craft and heritage of America’s brewers. Recipes calling for the use of pumpkins in beer date back to early colonial times, when brewers sought to extend their supply of costly imported malt with locally grown ingredients, such as squash and "pompions."
In that spirit, we brew our ale with the addition of pumpkin to the mash, along with traditional spices to create a delicious American original.

tfontana (1087) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 17, 2017
Taster pour at Powder Keg Beer and Chili Festival. Appearance is light brown hazy with finger-width white foamy head, mild lacing. Aroma is light pumpkin spice, general maltiness. Taste is light pumpkin--not overpoweringly sweet, perhaps not sweet enough--and not much else. Palate is medium bodied with average-to-lively carbonation and moderately pumpkin-y finish but surprisingly not sweet, even a little bit bitter. Overall, often spice/herb/vegetable beers whack you over the head with whatever the special flavor they have. This one is too restrained and there isn't enough of a base beer behind it to rescue it. Forgettable.

Välkommen till en exkursion i farmors kryddhylla. Här hittar vi allt trevligt som hör julen till. Särskilt smaken av nejlika. Som sitter som klistrad rakt igenom hela flaskan. Pumpan då? Den känns det inte ett spår av.

Nose is very rich in flavours with pimpernell and some muscot nut. Looks really nice in medium amber with white head. Taste is like gingerbread and x-mas time. Palate is short but not bad.
