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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Poured a nice pumpkin orange, slightly hazy with at one finger white head that will linger and give a little lacing

S - spicey and "herby" I can't smell any pumpkin or roasted pumpkin though

T - I can taste a lot of cinnamon, nutmeg maybe some allspice but the pumpkin is hard to notice. This beer finishes a little bitter and that bitter flavor will linger for a while on your tongue. I would have rather this finished sweet.

M - this is good the perfect level of carbonation and it is just heavy enough.

D - again this is ranks high, had it been a bit sweeter it would have tasted better but would have had lower drinkability. As it is this beer is very drinkable
