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.

DrnkMcDermott (3015) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - OCT 9, 2013
Single bottle from Lemon Tree. Definitely shows signs of pumpkin, with its cloudy orange color. White head thats thick, but very fragile. Smell carries pumpkin pie spices, but does not depend so much on cinnamon and nutmeg. Spice is very much on the front of the palate. But theres also some roast pumpkin and a note of brown sugar. Overall impression is malty rather than sweet or dry, with a side order of spices. Further down, they tend to increase in strength until you get closer to a Christmas wassail than a Thanksgiving pie. But it would go well with a dry, baked turkey.

Brewhemia (239) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 18, 2016
Light amber with white head. Gentle aroma of cinnamon and cloves I think. Taste is sweet and has flavors of the spices and a bitter finish. Ok but not great I think. Havent tasted many pumpkin ales though so I lack reference.

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2016 Brnstensfrgad, klar med grddvitt skum. Det frsta som slr en i doften r kryddorna muskot ingefra kanel sedan en fin st fruktighet med bl.a. aprikoser och ananas, och s pumpa frsts. Smaken r fruktigt st och kryddig och matchar doften vl, en balanserande beska ligger kvar ett bra tag. En riktigt smakrik och vlbalanserad l.
