COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Smuttynose Pumpkin Ale is our homage to the craft and heritage of Americas 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.

Pours a hazy dark amber from a bottle. Immediately cloying "pumpkin spice" smell, not sure where the pumpkin flavor is, Im not getting it. For shame New England based Smuttynose. Tastes like a spiced rum drink. Blech. Should be noted, this was stuck in a surprise sample 12 pack from the local bottle store, a little disappointed because its past the drink by date, theyre totally just offloading their shelf turds.

Bottle. Hazy dark orange with small off-white foamy head, cinnamon- pumpkin aroma, high carbonation, faint pumpkin and spice flavor, slightly metallic sweetish taste, medium finish with pumpkin aftertaste. Not bad but not special either.

mcberko (15436) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 4, 2015
12 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out light pumpkin spices -- very simple and uninteresting. Flavour is simplistic, with spicy autumn notes (cinnamon and nutmeg) and not much else. What the hell are they going for? Pointless beer.

Ferris (13561) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 4, 2015
Bottle - Lots of soapy notes and pumpkin spice. Copper gold with no heat. Tastes much like it smells. Not good.

Hopmaestro (1440) - rebro, SWEDEN - NOV 1, 2015
Aroma of nutmeg, cinnamon and wet bread. Taste is... well pumpkin I guess, but also nuts, herbs, Christmas and a wee bit of salt. Way too thin in the body and too much spices. Happy Halloween brothers and sisters!
