Country Pumpkin is our medium-bodied harvest ale brewed with a medley of flavorful malt, pumpkin puree, Magnum hops and a touch of seasonal spices.The masterful blend of 2-Row, Vienna, Munich, Caramunich and Honey malt with Magnum hops balances the sweet pumpkin with an aroma of nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger and allspice to create a rich, malty ale for the autumn season.Delight in the deep golden-orange glow while savoring the complex, malt-forward flavors and surprisingly dry finish of our new curcubitaceous ale.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

12 oz. bottle poured into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy amber-orange color with a one-finger white head.

Smell: Nutmeg and clove with faint pumpkin. Wheat and some biscuity notes as well. This one is definitely more spice than actual pumpkin, although honestly it's a little underwhelming as a whole.

Taste: Unfortunately the trend of underwhelming continues here. Comes off like a lightly spiced pale lager. There just isn't a lot going on, and I get little to no actual pumpkin flavor.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, medium carbonation.

Overall: Not a bad beer, but there just isn't enough going on to keep it interesting. Where's the pumpkin?

A. Pours a light golden orange color. Thin quarter finger of wispy white head with just a smattering of lacing.

S. Cinnamon, brown sugar, clove, a little bit of bready malt character. Not much depth, but hits most of the core notes.

T. Follows the nose with cinnamon, lots of brown sugar, some all spice. Malts are light and somewhat fruity. Spices are the most apparent flavors, with a malt and hop base that doesn't really add too much. Drinks light a very thin, light slice of cheap pumpkin bread.

M. It's pretty damn watery. Everything here is just "mild" except for the spices which are more moderate. I just like a bit more depth to my pumpkin ales and this one lacks the sweet, thick character I've come to enjoy.

O. Decidedly average. Offensively inoffensive. They need to ramp up the malt on this one and give me something to sink my teeth into. Not bad, but certainly not memorable.

Tastes like vegetal pumpkin along with earthy hops. Not hoppy, but not really sweet either. Above average, but I have had better in the style.
