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.

A finger's worth of slightly fluffy tightly packed khaki colored frothiness... The color is a medium caramel orange... Loaded with micro bubbled carbonation some of which moves in deliberate streaks and some of which move in randomly in quick fashion... Limited retention with little or no lacing... A nice big pumpkin nose can be detected without even bringing one's nose around the glass... All the standards are there... Pumpkin pie filling... Light spices in the form of cinnamon, nutmeg and a hint of clove... Rich pie crust... Also some light caramel notes... Textbook for the style... The taste profile is slightly hard to place... Much of the anticipated autumnal goodness is muted by a fairly pronounced euro pale aleness... It's not bad, just unexpected... Medium bodied... Brisk carbonation... Slightly chalky finish... This one had some serious potential in terms of appearance and especially aroma, but quickly falls back to the pack in terms of flavor profile and mouthfeel... The end result is a somewhat enjoyable rather average run of the mill Pumpkin Ale...

Had it on tap at The Rusty Barrel. Very nice Pumpkin Ale. Smooth with nice spice mix but lets the pumpkin do most of the talking.
