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.

Had this on tap at the Drafting Room in Spring House,poured a medium orange/gold color with a light but sticky head,aroma was strong of cinnamon and nutmeg just like opening a jar of cinnamon.The taste was not so over the top a more subtle pumpkin flavor with the spices also being more subdued a light hop bitternes lingers pretty well.I think a real nice pumpkin offering here.
