Notes/Commercial Description:
The 2012 harvest on our Mom & Pop’s farm was fruitful and this brew uses 100 fresh pumpkins and 40 organic squash. We prepared, cooked, and pureed all the gourds with the help of our friends at Carrie Anne’s Modern Diner. A blend of autumn spices adds to the intense pumpkin flavors. Uses locally grown Triticale from MA.

October 2012

A: Golden-amber in color with a bubbly, foamy, off-white, slightly yellow head that fades into little lace and retention.

S: Great blend of fresh pumpkin, squash, earth, autumn, spices, roasted malt, and caramelized sugar/caramel.

T: Deliciously fresh pumpkin, gourd/squash, fall spices, roasted malt, with a hint of hops in the finish. Love the smooth, crisp and fresh taste of the lager, which is unique to this style of beer. Balanced with no overpowering or cloying flavors. Very tasty stuff.

M: Clean, fresh, smooth, properly carbonated. Great lager backbone to make this unique to the deluge of pumpkin beers on the market.

O: Maybe I'm biased because I love nearly everything Jack's Abby makes, but this is a fantastic beer. One of the best pumpkin beers I've had. Not only because it's a lager, but because it tastes and feels like beer made with pumpkins and spices rather than pumpkins and spices with a little beer mixed in. This is one of only a few pumpkin beers I could drink more than one of and would gladly have on hand all season.
