Long Trail is excited to launch Long Trail Pumpkin Ale, a slightly sweet seasonal treat artfully brewed with pumpkins, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves. The perfect drink for a fall day, this exceptionally balanced beer has an aroma very reminiscent of pumpkin pie.

Had this af a pumpkin tasting along with 23 other pumkin beers

Say what you want. This was a blind tasting... .

There were 6 judges... of the six... one judge had it #1 and 4 of the 6 had it in there top 5.

Had the best pop... cleanest taste.. very good brew and I would look for this one when seeking out pumpkin brews

Kind of surprised that this beer doesnt have an image or many reviews to go with it. So I assume that it must be a new style or it was introduced last year.

A: Beer pours an orange/amber color with a thick 1-inch creamy white head, which leaves some good lacing. The head is slow to dissipate so I just tilted the glass to see if it would leave anything.

S: Smell of pumpkin pie just reeks off the glass. I get hints of cinnamon, spice, nutmeg and of course, pumpkin.

T: The taste is a lot like the smell, gets some bread-type malts,roasted nuts like you would get in a Brown Ale, cinnamon and caramel. The flavor ends on the tip of the tongue with pumpkin and spice, but the pumpkin is not dominant.

M: Very creamy and rich, lots of flavors, light carbonation. This is a very drinkable beer regardless of your preference for how much pumpkin flavor there is.

O: I really enjoyed this beer and will definitely seek it out again. A really nice cross between a pumpkin beer and a brown ale. It could have used a little more pumpkin flavor, but im not complaining. Overall, solid!

I get smells of vanilla, some graham cracker, a little allspice and a dash of pumpkin and maybe some cinnamon ending with a slight floral spicy hop.

You get the floral spicy hop up front and then it finishes with the vanilla and graham cracker crust taste which really makes this beer in my opinion. The allspice and pumpkin come in subtly with the pumpkin come off as a sort of green vegetable taste which is good and balances the sweetness from the spices and malts. I may be tasting a bit of ginger in there too with some of its spicy qualities.

I was surprised with this beer and I think it rivals some of the better made pumpkin beers out there. It was the last one in my beer store so maybe its more popular than I had imagined. Anyways good beer and definitely a sessionable Halloween beer.

Pumpkin is getting a bit overdone (seems like everything is pumpkin spice these days) but like everything else they do, Long Trail has produced a nice version of a pumpkin ale. Balanced, not overly sweet with the right amount of spice. Well done

This was the first pumpkin beer I've had this fall, so my opinion may be slightly favorable but I really like this beer. It's got a nice, even pumpkin aroma and flavor that's not overstated and is incredibly refreshing. Pumpkin doesn't dominate the palate like some other beers of this style tend to do, I'm thinking Shipyard Pumpkinhead and it doesn't taste like pumpkin pie. I've always been a fan of Long Trail beers and I was glad to see this in the fall mix pack. An excellent start to pumpkin beer season!
