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.

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.
