Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: IPAchris on 08-19-2013

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.

As I sit here and sip this beautifully crafted Ale, I gather my full opinion of what's going on inside my mouth and brain. Not only is "Maple" in the title of this beer, but "maple" definitely shows itself. There is a hint of something different, which would be the butternut squash, that adds just enough difference to separate this pumpkin beer from the next. Another piece of the recipe would be the pirate rum spices that mix so perfectly with the pumpkin and maple creating a beautiful brew. Well done, I will be waiting for fall next year.
