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.

A: Pours a golden honey brown with one finger head that dissipates quickly leaving little or no lacing.

S: Pumpkin pie spice, caramel, burnt sugar. Cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, vanilla, allspice.

T: Big autumn spices. Allspice, nutmeg, clove, and cinnamon. Brown sugar and caramel. Graham crackers.

M: Fairly light body tending towards thin. Finish is very spicy and sweet.

O: Interesting pumpkin beer. I really enjoyed this one, but more than one of these in a session would be a bit much.

This beer is full of flavor and smells fantastic, with lots of cinnamon, pumpkin, clove, and vanilla–everything you would expect from a pumpkin beer. There is a little bit of a nutty sweetness as well. It is a little bit spicy and cidery at the end which helps keep it from getting too sweet. The body is very smooth and a little bit creamy with a nice effervescent quality.
