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.

Bottle. Pours a dark amber color. Head is standard. Very generous with lacing. Aroma consists solely of pumpkin spicing. Sweetness and spices. Noticeable cloves. Pumpkin beer all the way. Pumpkin and all the members of the spice gang. Actually has a gourdy flavor. Slightly bitter. Less spice-laden on the tongue. Medium bodied. Another Pumpkin....another Pumpkin.

Tis the pumpkin season and it's def time to strike some more off the list. Bottled 7/09/14.

Pours a smaller fizzy bubbly 1/2 finger head that fades at a med pace, light lacing, very hazy honey amber brown color.

Nose has some pumpkin, but a weird one, a gourd like fleshy pumpkin, and lots of baking spices, nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, some brown sugar and candy like aromas, a little pumpkin, sweet molasses candy mess like, butterscotch, a bit of a mess but still somehow light.

Taste brings more sweet sugary mess, brown sugar molasses and aged old bitter tannic burnt almost rotting like sugar cane plants, with some mild pumpkin and lots of bad gourd, etc. Baking spices are there, a bit less than I expected thankfully, nutmeg and allspice, hint of cinnamon, etc. A bit of bitterness, tannic burnt spice bitterness and spicy hop as well. Finish is bitter and tannic, more baking spices, and messy vegetal molasses lingering, little spicy hop, and some vegetal gourd pumpkin lingering.

Mouth is med bod, decent carb, little syrupy.

Overall meh, pumpkin is vegetal and gourd like, not so tasty, as well as the sweet molasses and brown sugar, as well as the bitter tannic spices, etc. Not a very tasty 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
