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.

It's a very drinkable beer, light, sweet smooth. It starts smooth and finishes in the mouth with a bit more body. The flavors are subtle as is the scent. It just disappoints if your looking for a beer that really says "Autumn". This is something I could drink in the summer, or any other time of the year because it lacks a definitive Character in it's flavor, scent, and feel.

If your looking for a beer that reallly says autumn in the mouth with all it's flavors go for Elysian's rendition of the pumpkin ale.

Dogfish again delivers a decent beer but yet again being way overpriced. $13/ 4-pack

A - A nice medium coppery color with visible carbonation and a brief ivory foam.

S - Nose greets with unmistakable spiciness of cloves, nutmeg and cinnamon over hints of banana and apricot.

T - Modestly sweet malts with more of the same spice tones, just enough of a hop profile to keep it balanced.

M - Decently smooth texture with a hint of flabbiness around the edges.

O - Not a bad rendition of this specialty style, definitely worth a try.
