Notes/Commercial Description:
There are pumpkin based flavors that are not pumpkin pie. With this in mind we set out to make an autumnal beer in the pumpkin tradition that wasn't simply a spiced beer using the usual pie-spice blend. Looking to enhance the pumpkin's flavors, we roasted its meat touched with orange oil, pink peppercorns and candied ginger. We added this to the mash of our high gravity cream ale recipe. The result is a rich bodied ale, its creaminess teased by the peppercorns' heat, that presents the flavors of pumpkin while notes of orange zest and a sweet ginger bite tame the vegetal dryness. Drink Pumpkin Cream Ale because there are spices on the shelf behind the nutmeg.

Carton pumpkin - served on tap at Morris Tap and Grill 10/12

Pours a cloudy gold haze. Light foam. Spiced pumpkin nose, hints of nutmeg. Rich pumpkin taste. Pie filling taste. Light spice in the back. Creamy mouthfeel, really tasty. Very flavorful. Solid seasonal. 4 375 425 45 425

This ain't your daddy's Genesee! Though pro'lly twice the octane, this is a pleasant, smooth drink. Lite on aroma, it laces nicely and has a subtle sweetness and fruity finish. OK, I'm done being homogenous in my review. Short story is, if you want an easy drinking beer that will kick your ass.... Or just appreciate a well-done example of the variety, I say you won't do better.
