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.

Its a pumpkin beer. Lots of spice on the nose. Color is orange like a pumpkin. Its a pretty high alcohol beer but you really don't taste that. What I did taste were rich malts and lots of pumpkin pie spices, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, maybe some ginger.

Overall: This is one of the better pumpkin beers I have had. Its balanced well and it delivers as advertised. It has a nice creamy mouthfeel. Its a nice fall treat. I will get more next year.
