This is the best pumpkin ale I've tasted. Saranac was the best until I tasted this. Don't be so fussy. I like the higher alc content as it makes it taste better. If you enjoy it, just say so. Too many IPA'S and stouts are dominating categories. What's a good ale anymore? Molson Golden used to be an ale and now it's just a beer. Ballantine IPA from Cranston, Rhode Island used to be the best. Yes, Pliny the Elder is truly exceptional but the owners are people who will only allow Pliny the Younger to be West Coast.
They are nice people who responded to Questions but when you limit a brew to a specific area, no one can queston how good it is unless you go there. Beer is subjective. Guess what? Iron City Amber from Pittsburgh is pretty good!

By far, the best pumpkin beer I have ever tasted. Most pumpkin beers in my opinion are overly skewed towards just the pumpkin spice side - not enough pumpkin. Smashed Pumpkin had a wonderfully strong balance of both - pumpkin fruit and subtle pumpkin spice. The beer was not sweet. There is no bitter note on this beer - the finish is still all pumpkin. I can't emphasize enough, this is the closest pumpkin beer I've found to be like a slice of (unsweetened) pumpkin pie.

Full bodied, dark-dark amber, a bit hazy. While it's full bodied - it does not taste like it's a 9% beer...very easy drinking.

Serving type: on-tap

Bottle purchased at Arrowine Arlington, VA

A: A nice golden dawn amber hue. White cotton lacing forms around the edges of a light pumpkin amber base.

S: A nice bouquet of cinnamon, nutmeg, and spiced clove. Sweet Pumpkin pie, breaded leavings, brown sugar syrup. Maple cloved malts and pine cone resins.

T: This is one tasty pumpkin brew when it warms up. Never drink pumpkin beers cold!! Slightly chilled above room temperature really brings out the spiced clove and warm cinnamon nicely. The nutmeg closes the palate after the cloves and the sweet pumpkin rind rides the warm cinnamon train all hopped up and ready to play.

M: This is a nice medium carbo hopped clove bomb. Warm and tempting. Medium slick mouthfeel. Full and inviting.

O: This ranks as my number 2 pumpkin beer beating out Schlafly and Weyerbacher. Still no Southern Tier Pumking, but damn close!
