A full-bodied brown ale with smooth hints of pumpkin and brown sugar. We brew our Punkin Ale with pumpkin meat, organic brown sugar and spices. As the season cools, this is the perfect beer to warm up with.

Color of clear amber with a off-white head that disappears quickly. Aroma of pumpkin, nutmeg, vanilla and other spices. As far as taste, the first thing that hits you is the carbonation, followed by the flavors of a pumpkin pie with a nice malt finish at the back end. Easy, refreshing drink for the fall. I recommend enjoying this beer while watching your favorite football team.

It has that great burnt orange Halloween color to it with a smell of any Halloween pumpkin candle or pie but still remaining a beer at the same time. The smell is of exactly what the label says brown sugar, allspice, cinnamon and nutmeg with a hint of raw vegetable pumpkin.The taste mirrors this very well. Amazing taste of all these spices and that vegetable taste from the pumpkin.

Its smooth as soon as you take a sip with with the wave of pumpkin and the slight spice evolving at the end with some hops to back it up. It is subtle on the spices so you have to know what just pumpkin tastes like to really pick up on it. The cinnamon I get the most with the vegetable pumpkin taste throughout. Absolutely delicious beer.

I never thought I'd be that into pumpkin beers until I tried this one. So, you can pretty much say this is the beer that turned me onto pumpkin beers. Good job Dogfish head we love you.
