Pumpkin Ale |  7.10% ABV

Availability: Fall

Notes/Commercial Description:
Our pumpkin ale is brewed with generous amounts of real pumpkin blended into the mash. The subtle fresh pumpkin flavor is enhanced by the addition of a touch of traditional autumn spices and sweet dough, thus creating a beer with an orange amber color, warm pumpkin aroma, a bold malt center and a crisp finish. We are proud to offer you a balanced and delectable fall treat. Suitable for zombies.

Poured from a bomber into a Brewer's Art goblet. Moderate hand. No identifiable date on the bottle.

A: Hazy, cider-colored body with 1/2 finger of rich, almost white, head. Ok retention. Light lacing.

S: Very sweet nose, strong vanilla, marshmellow, caramel, circus peanuts (!). Lighter baking spice, nutmeg. Trace pumpkin. Brown sugar. Pretty unique.

T: Dry malt and spice open up. Transitions to a hop-fueled bitterness for a rather dry finish. The key word here is "dry". Surprisingly so, given the nose. Pretty clean for the style. Lingering bitterness and baking spice in aftertaste.

M: Moderate carbonation and medium to light body. Faint creaminess.

O: There are some interesting things happening here, flavor-wise. High potential, but unfortunately, there is a bit too much hop going on here. I think the bitterness detracts a bit, but this is still a fine brew.

Prost!

Received in a trade and poured into a standard tulip.

A - crystal clear super light gold hue with a thin wispy head that fades to leave, well wisps! 4

S - Aromas of vanilla galore, light spices, nice vegetative pumpkin, almost creamsicle like. Very pleasant 4.5

T - Taste is similar to the nose, for a delicious brief flash. Wonderful vanilla and pumpkin, the spices ate super super subtle which I really love, almost an orange note. Odd, but tasty. 4.25

M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, slightly creamy, works well with the flavours. 4.25

O - Overall this beer was really interesting. Very orange creamsicle like with nice faint pumpkin pie spice and good vegetative pumpkin, solid. 4.25
