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.

Appearance: Orange with some brown and a sustainable head if poured correctly.
Aroma: A bit more chill than some other pumpkins with similar abv, but the usual suspects (cinnamon, cloves, baked pumpkin pie.)
Taste: Starts off into pumpkin. nutmeg, cinnamon, slight vanilla, and then there is a breadiness in the backbone. Well balanced flavors and a drinkability despite the spices in there.
Overall: Was highly recommended from last year, so I got it. Very good, nice flavors, easy to drink, but also a nice kick in the teeth with the 8%. Different from the other "imperial" pumpkins like Southern Tier's Pumpking or Pugsley's Smashed Pumpkin, but very good. Lets face it, this style is not session worthy with the spices, but I really enjoyed this on a nice cool night in September and will buy again.
Cheers!!
