Notes/Commercial Description:
Our Pumpkin Ale blends the spices of the harvest with full-bodied sweetness for a beer that tastes like pumpkin pie. Pounds of pumpkin form a malty foundation that supports the fall flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove.

While pumpkin beers were produced in the early days of the American colonies, they were different from the pumpkin beers we know today. Colonists used pumpkin and squash as the fermenting medium, since malted barley was scarce. Once malt became more readily available, it replaced these alternatives to grain. In the 1990’s, American craft brewers reintroduced the style to the delight of pumpkin beer drinkers.

Big ups for the bottle.

A: Poured a super deep reddish copper color. One of the darkest pumpkin ales I have ever seen. Initially had about a finger and a half of slightly darker than white head. Poor head retention.

S: More of a roasted pumpkin nose. Some faint nutmeg in the back dominating the other pumpkin spices.

T: Wow. That is a big pumpkin taste. Reminds me of a better version of Southampton's. The spices and pumpkin are really well balanced. You even get a hint of malt in this which is unique and welcome.

M: Nice medium to thick body.

D: This is probably the 2nd or 3rd best pumpkin ale I have ever had. Pumking is the king. Then Bethlehem brewworks version and this are neck and neck. A really nice beer all around. Definately surprised me.
