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.

Smells like a spiced beer but I can't pick anything specifically
Out of it. Not much taste of anything until you swallow when you are left with some sort bitter generic spice taste in the back of
Your mouth rather unpleasant. It took me about an hour to drink after I decided not
To pour it down the drain. pours a pretty cooper color not very carbonated

Was disappointed in this Pumpkin Ale. More notes of cinnamon than pumpkin. Finish is def more bitter than I was expecting. Having had Pumking before this brew the bar was set pretty high. Will enjoy the remainder of the 6 pack but wont be buying this again.
