Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Poured from bottle into pint glass

A- Nice, golden hue, seems to glow. Illuminated. Small off-white head with a yellowy tint

S- Pumpkin spices, pumpkin flesh on the nose

T- Slight clean hop taste, melds well with the crisp clean pumpkin and spice taste. Very well balanced, great tasting pumpkin ale. Sweet, but not over the top.

M- Crisp, clean, enjoyable with a slight carbonation prick. Very drinkable. One of few pumpkin beers that I could sit down and spend an evening drinking

O- Great tasting well balanced bold flavors. A nice, drinkable beer that represents the style well.

Pours an orange color with a white, creamy head. Nose is spices (clove and all spice) with cookie and pumpkin malts in the mix. Taste starts off with sweet caramel and cookie malts. These give way to cloves and an array of other pumpkin related spices. Pumpkin malt intertwined with more pumpkin spice finishes this beer off. The body matches the style well - full and smooth. Overall, this is a light, yet flavorful, pumpkin beer. Recommended!

I picked up a sixer of this stuff in a really nice store in Monroeville, PA.

Served in a Delirium Tremens glass.

A: Poured a very dark, saturated orange, with little to no light passing through. The head was slight, whispy, and about where it should be.

S: Lots of strong pumpkin pie spices: nutmeg, cinnamon, all spice, and a bit of the gourd itself poking through. Also, there was a very organic, sour dough quality that served well in letting us know that this is indeed a beer, rather than just liquified pumpkin pie.

T: Yep, a good amount of bread yeast rides very nicely on top of the pumpkin dessert. The all spice takes center stage and I truly appreciated that this wasn't a cinnamon bomb.

M: Thick and a bit syrupy, but isn't that what pumpkin desserts are about anyway? The carbonation was about where it should be and I didn't get any booze. The lacing was moderate.

O: I think I liked this better than most on here and think that it could stack up really well with the myriad of pumpkin pie clones on the market.
