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.

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2007 Pours slightly cloudy amber/orange with a large head and good lacing. Smells of orange, malt, pumpkin pie spices, yeast and cardamom. Not as much pumpkin pie spices as many others. Maybe some coriander in there, too. Kind of reminds me of a pumpkin/wit brew. Its got a little tartness in there somewhere. Pretty damn original.

Poured a clouded rusty orange with just a thin white head. Big time spicy/nutmeg aroma, except it almost has a twist of lemon it it. The flavor parallels ... almost citrusy lemon-lime-iness at first, and then the undertow of pumpkin.

Tap- I was helping them blow this keg out. Light orange color. Not much head on this one. Hints of cinnamon, honey, cloves, and brown sugar spices. Starts off a bit sweet and has a dry finish to it. I also had a secon one with some cinnamon sugar around the rim. Great holiday beer.

KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 21, 2006
Cloudy amber. Smell of flowers, pumpkin, ginger, clove, hops and sometimes laundry detergent. Taste of pumpkin, cinnamon and a very heavy tart bitterness at the end. It smelled a lot better than it tastes but still one on the good pumpkin beers out there.

VVilliam (50) - USA - NOV 1, 2006
Bottled. Beautiful appearance with vibrant amber orange color. Smell of crisp pumpkin and spice. The beer was very hoppy with a light spice aftertaste. As the beer warmed, the pumpkin and fruit flavor became more apparent. Average body with a light burn. Overall an average beer.

Aroma full off spice and pumpkin. Nice thick off-white head. Orange body with mild carbonation. Pretty good pumpkin flavor. Lingering spice and hop finish. Good stuff.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2008 I had not enjoyed the pumpkin ales that I tried before this, but something in the air prompted me to pick this one up. As soon as I opened the bottle I was intrigued. A pumpkin pie spice aroma is very prominent. I was afraid the taste would be too sweet, but it actually had the subtlety of fresh natural pumpkin. Most important, though, was the strong balance of pumpkin and hops. I couldnt get enough of this.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 26, 2006
Reddish orange clear body. White soapy sparse head. Decent aroma pumpkin spice, something that seems like wet crisp hops. Taste is okay crisp yeasty pumpkin with some faint sweet caramelly malts. Almost a bittering spicy hop presence too that dries it out a bit. At least my glass caught a fruit fly.
