Notes/Commercial Description:
This American Spiced Ale is reminiscent of your favorite autumn dessert: pumpkin pie. The nutmeg, ginger and cinnamon that create this beer's delicious aroma are balanced against the malts and pumpkin in this recipe to give this spicy treat its charming flavor profile. Lil’s Grumpkin Pumpkin is only available while supplies last.

Had to try this while at Dragonmead as you don't see many pumpkins around in April.

Amber color, clean with minimal off white head that fades quickly.

Full of pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices with a bit of graham cracker. Really nice with toffee in the background. Nutmeg, cinnamon, brown sugar, and all spice dominate, naturally.

A good pumpkin ale. Odd time of year for it but still very refreshing. Again pumpkin is the key with the spices adding nice layered flavors instead of taking over. Same flavors as the olfactor represents. Mouth is full and creamy.

Clear orange/amber with a thin, fine off-white head. Good lacing. Spicy aroma with a sweet/earthy fruitiness. Flavour mirrors the aroma with just a bit of bitterness. Off-dry finish. There's a lot of fresh pumpkin character in this one, almost like standing in a pumpkin patch rather than a pumpkin pie. And the low spice level let this all shine through.
