Notes/Commercial Description:
Our first release from Mother’s Cupboard, Mr. Pumpkin is a medium bodied, copper color ale. With just the right blend of 2 Row, Caramel, and Crystal malts, pumpkin and spices, Mother’s has created one yummy pint of love. Perfect after dinner in lieu of dessert, or for a night out on the town.

Mr. Pumpkin is a mild mannered salesman by day, but a wild card at night. Enjoy out doors on cool fall nights, or when slaving over the stove making that holiday dinner for the in-laws. If pie can be for breakfast, well it certainly should work as beer. Plus you don't have to worry about mastering your grandmother’s piecrust recipe. Invite Mr. Pumpkin to your next dinner and the conversation will never end.

Pulled this 12oz bottle from Hank's fridge of Fall wonders back at the man cave. Many choices in there, but I just can't pass up anything from Mother's.

Nice burnt orange color with bits of what I think may be pumpkin pulp churning about. Pretty think fizzy white head never quite makes a fingers worth.

I love the smell even though there is something artificial about it. Very spicy pumpkin pie - lots of nutmeg and cinnamon.

Tastes like it smells with plenty of spice wallop. I like that fact that this thing is loaded with cinnamon. The nutmeg and allspice and candy sugar join up with the cinnamon to nearly overtake the pumpkin, but it's a still a great meld. Good nut/grain undertones.

All pumpkin ales seem to be a little watery to me and this one is no different. The carbonation keeps it from getting too thin.

Never had a bad beer from Mother's. Doubt I ever will. Next time I'm at Hank's, I'll drink another if he offers it.

look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Pours an effervescent orange/copper with 2 fingers of cream colored head. Alright lacing & head retention

S: Pumpkin pie spices in copious quantities

T: Follows the nose, dryness & squashy notes up front. Plenty of all-spice & nut meg as this warms, a kiss of caramel as well. Finishes dry with much pumpkin pie spice

MF: Light/medium body, firm carbonation

Drinks easy, but nothing earthshattering here. I was hoping for more, jack this up a few more ABV & this would work for me. Probably never buy again if Schlaflys is around, worth a try none the less

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours a rusty orange with lots of bubbles. It has one finger offwhite head with average retention.

S - Lots of nutmeg and cinnamon upfront with just a slight hint of pumpkin trailing.

T - Much like the aroma. Strong nutmeg and cinnamon with a slight pumpkin taste in the back. The use of nutmeg is a little strong for me and overpowers the pumpkin. Still very drinkable

M - This is one of the lighter bodied Pumpkin Ales that I have had. Its very slick in the mouh.

O - This is not a bad pumpkin ale. I think it could be greatly improved with a little more pumpkin or a little less nutmeg. Still very drinkable

3.49/5  rDev -4.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Clear copper/amber color with a nice ivory head that persists and manages a bit of lacing.

The aroma is pumpkin pie spices with just a hint of malt sneaking in.

The taste is the same, plenty of pumpkin pie flavor, a bit of caramel malt. The label suggests it could be good with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, not what I usually do with beer, but it might be worth a try, I like my pie ala mode.

Light body, easy enough to drink of you can handle the spices.

Overall, better than a lot of the pumpkin ales on the market. Not one of my favorite styles but worth a try.
