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.

12 oz bottle from Lil Roberts Place - Bottled on B 2013F 00:50?

a - Pours a partially cloudy amber orange, with some brown overtones. One finger head that moves quickly to a thin lace.

S- Pumpkin, nutmeg.

T - More pumpkin, a tinge (check) of sugar. Gingerbread.

M - Seems crisp, but full. Carbonation seems low, then spikes and gets prickly mid swig before fading quickly.

O - Decent brew. You can tell it was brewed with "real pumpkin". Nothing attention grabbing, like some other pumpkins I have had recently, just a simple well done pumpkin ale.

Poured into a chilled pint glass from the bottle. Nice head with minimal retention and sparse lacing. Good, dark amber color.

Initial notes of cinnamon and malt. Smelled and tasted like a great pumpkin ale, but the more I continued to drink, it lost its initial greatness. I tend to prefer a darker, sweeter pumpkin ale, so this beer is a little light for me.

Still, very solid beer and especially for a pumpkin ale. Will buy again if no other new offerings for fall are around.
