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.

12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. Bottle on date of 25 July 2014.

Appearance - Dark orange to light amber in color. 1/2 finger of head the didn't last long.

Smell - Nutmeg and cinnamon. Spices dominate with pumpkin in the background.

Taste - Same as the nose with maybe a little more pumpkin. A great beer fitting the style.

Mouth feel - medium or maybe a little lighter. not very effervescent but I wasn't expecting that.

Overall this is a great Pumpkin beer. If available in your area I would highly recommend.
