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.

This is an excellent Pumpkin Ale...found this at a local place and gave it a shot...was pleasantly surprised. While it is no where near as good as Dog Fish Head or Whole Hog, it is still a darn good brew!!!

Best by 3/23/15. 6.45% ABV per the label.

Pours a hazy dark orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, cinnamon bread, and pumpkin pie spice aromas. Taste is much the same with malt, pumpkin, earth, and pumpkin pie spice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that has a nice mix of earthy pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice qualities.

Serving type: bottle.

Not what I was expecting at all. The most balanced pumpkin/fall/harvest ale I've ever had. Somehow manages to have hops in the center of the finish, is extremely crisp, and has a strong cinnamon nose with all of the fall spice flavor you'd expect. If you gave this to me blind I would never in a million years guess it was a pumpkin ale.
