Connecticut

3.58/5  rDev -2.7%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12 oz. bottle. Best by December 2012.

Faint yeasty particles suspended in a coppery-bronze body. Small, ringy, gauzy, eggshell white head. Warm malty aromas of pumpkin pie filling, graham cracker, and caramel. Cooked carrots and spices (vanilla, cardamom, nutmeg, cinnamon) round out the nose.

Toasted malt and light grainy astringency up front. Pumpkin pie filling fills in along with cooked carrots and caramel. Moderate dose of spices near the finish. Nutmeg, clove, and cinnamon. Lingering spices in the finish. Moderate body with a smooth feel. Not bad pumpkin here!

3.86/5  rDev +4.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Presentation: Country Pumpkin has an awesome eye-catching label with great colors and graphics. Label gives a bit of brewery info, best before date of 11/17/2013, states “the spirit of the Finger Lakes”. Cap has Ithaca logo, a bit of brewery info, web info, states “the spirit of the Finger Lakes”.

Appearance: An aggressive pour from its 12oz brown bottle into a 20oz English pint led to a 2 finger golden off-white head of a medium density atop a hazy orange/copper sediment laced beer. Head retention was 3min before fading to a thin coating and ring with OK lacing.

Smell/Aroma: Smell is very sweet with hints of nutty malts and pumpkin along with hints of ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

Flavor/Taste: Taste is of ginger, nutmeg, and all spice with hints of pumpkin on the front-end. Mid-point is dominated by a cinnamon bite and an ever more prevalent pumpkin flavor with a bit of sweet malt coming through for balance. Back-end is heavy on a sweet nutty maltiness and pumpkin flavors with a slight bit of bitterness. Aftertaste is of a nutty pumpkin.

MouthFeel/Drinkability: Country Pumpkin is on the full side of medium bodied with an above average amount of carbonation giving it a smooth finish. This is extremely drinkable and thirst quenching.

Overall/Comments: Country Pumpkin is one of the better Pumpkin Ales that I have had the pleasure of trying mostly because it is not overly sweet and not overly spiced making it very sessionable and easy drinking. I highly recommend trying it out! Classified as a Pumpkin Ale at 6.3% ABV. Consumed 12/12/2013.

3.65/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12 ounce bottle with best before dating on the side of the label.

Pours cloudy, dull and murky darker amber, minimal head, no film collar and next to no lace. Meh look to this one.

Semi sweet pumpkin on the nose with some soft malt notes.

Soft and smooth on the tongue, this ale, has a mellowness and approach ability that has me wanting a few more sips after the bottle is done.

More pumpkin on the palate, but it s is nicely muted and well integrated into the mellow and malty rest of this beer.

Tasty, smooth and easy drinking. Decent pumpkin forward beer. A bit out of season and no doubt a bit passed its prime at the time of its consumption (now)....
