Notes/Commercial Description:
In the autumn of 1720, Captain Jack Rachman and his pirate-mates were celebrating their victories in typical hard-drinking tradition. Suddenly a British Navy sloop surprised them. The drunken pirates hid below deck, leaving Captain Jack’s mistresses Anne Bonney and Mary Read to defend the ship. The women shared a reputation as “fierce hell cats,” but the British Navy eventually overtook the pirate ship. Captain Jack and the pirates were sentenced to hang. Anne visited her lover in his cell before his execution, and instead of loving words her scathing comments live on throughout history, “Had you fought like a man, you need not have been hang’d like a dog.” Their legacy inspired us to brew an equally ferocious Imperial Pumpkin Ale brewed with pirate rum spices. We added a touch of autumn flavor with roasted butternut squash and natural maple syrup.

After trying other beers Saucony Creek had out a few months ago, I saw their Maple Mistress in stores and was pleasantly surprised. It is definitely one of the best pumpkin ales I have ever tasted.
I highly recommend people trying the other beers this brewery has to offer.

My favorite pumpkin beer by far. I have had Pumpking, Warlock, Schlafly Pumpkin Ale, Punkn; IMHO the Maple Mistress is better then some of the "best". While all of the above will satisfy your taste for pumpkin, the Maple Mistress had a number of other flavors that will awaken your palate.

Sweeter than expected, yet had a heavier alcoholey taste to it that showed every bit of its 9%+ ABV. Definitely an autumn beer that hits you in the middles (of the tongue, as opposed to the tip of the tongue or the back) and lingers there for quite awhile. Highly recommended for any pumpkin pie, cinnamon, nutmeg, caramel, or toffee aficionados. my only regret is that I drank it all before thinking to write a review.
