Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #34 (Nov 2009):

Brewed with locally grown Nantucket pumpkins.

Hazed tawny hue; light wisp of lace graces the top. A pretty complex nose, pleasant roundness of pumpkin and spice within an earthy yeast and sweet bready maltiness. Light carbonation yields enough smoothness to get by. At first sip, some mellow and vague spic- ing, as not one of the spices really jumps out. Pumpkin is hand in hand with the malt while the hops push everything down with a wild herb flavor and bitterness. Malt is toasty, a little roasty and mostly dry. Nutty, earthy yeast with some ripe fruit in the semidry finish.

Cisco hit all the right marks, balanced with a heavy hand of complex flavors. Big and bold, a wedge of aged Gouda would do very well here.

A- Pours golden-orange color with a big creamy two-finger off-white head that retains long after the pour, leaving some lace behind.

S- more of a hoppy nose than a typical pumpkin ale with some herbal and woodsy aromas. Typical pumpkin spices are there with some raw pumpkin and toasted bread malt

T- well balanced pumpkin flavors of nutmeg and cinnamon, bready malt balances with a subtle pumpkin flavor, herbal and grassy hops close it out

M- Medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a smooth mouthfeel and a silky dry finish

O- a different take on the typical pumpkin ale, the increased hop bitterness played well with the pumpkin spices
