Notes/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.

Pumpkin Ale pours a nice golden color with a small head. There is a light spice aroma. The taste has a nice full pumpkin flavor, good spice notes, very balanced. Good feel, nice body. Overall its a very solid pumpkin.

Just right amount of pumkin flavor. Bitter than most pumkin ales.

When I saw this pumpkin ale available at my grocery store I thought to myself "how delicious". Also there's supposed to be some cinnamon included in the beverage as well. Sadly I tasted neither. All I tasted was a bitter ale with no flavors of squash or spices. So given this I am disappointed. I purchased a 6 pack and am stuck with 5 more bottles. That's the bad news. The good news is it did leave me a good aftertaste. Sometimes I'll have a flavorful drink and then 1/2 hour later the aftertaste spoils it.

I like pumpkin, but this one is a little spicy for me.
