Late Night Pumpkin Ale
North Country Brewing
Style: Pumpkin Ale
ABV: unknown

LOOK: Hazed orange like a standard pumpkin ale, there was an off white, pillowy froth on the beer. Left a bit of lace on the glass, and emitting from the glass were glorious notes of pumpkin pie spices.

SMELL: Biscuit malt apparant right away with a sweet, almost buttery smell. Of course, there is a ton of pumpkin smells as well, with fresh gourd, clove, cinnamon, and allspice sticking out rather easily.

TASTE: Pumpkin flavors, bright but not overstated spices, and delicious biscuit malt working so good with the pumpkin. Sweet malt and pumpkin pie flavors steal the show. Clove, cinnamon, allspice and even a hint of vanilla are all represented in this most festive ale.

FEEL: Medium bodied, well carbonated, smooth, drying spices, lingering pumpkin and vanilla flavors, need I say more?

OVERALL: This is really delicious stuff, and can easily stand up to some of the most well regarded pumpkin ales out there. With a canning line being put in place, this would be great to release to the masses. Unfortunately, demand is so high for this beer, its always gone within the weekend it is tapped...

A big thanks emperor of the canned beer kingdom, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a dark brown color with orange highlights and a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of pumpkin pie. Taste is pumpkin, spices are present but not overpowering, some hints of vanilla, easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall a solid beer, but I suppose I was expecting more based on it's score.

The spice was less than other pumpkin beers I've had, but I could see myself drinking this throughout the year. Very easy to drink with a crisp ale taste and light hop flavor. I wouldn't come to this if I was looking for pumpkin spice, but I wouldn't mind drinking this for any occasion.

Had this on-tap at the local bar <1 mile from my house. Actually. Pretty amazing since the closest to craft beer they has otherwise ever was Yuengling Wheat.

A- Body is a hazy dark amber hue. Serves with a 1 finger soapy slightly off-white head.Head has good retention and leaves lacing all the way down the glass.

S- Pumpkin, spices, cinnamon, brown sugar, vanilla, pumpkin pie, nutmeg.

T- Lots of pumpkin pie, pumpkin spice, and brown sugar flavors upfront with nice vanilla overtones and a pumpkin backbone. The spices come through a little more for the finish but stay really balances with the pumpkin and vanilla.

F- Awesome. Smooth and creamy with a medium weight body and medium carbonation.

O- Overall this is a really nice, well balanced pumpkin ale. It remind me a lot of the weyerbacher imperial pumpkin with more body and less alcohol. Fantastic job. I had heard from my Slippery Rock U friends that this is a great beer- but I didn't know it was this outstanding. I will probably stopping by and drinking most of the keg of this if it doesn't sell quickly at my local watering hole.

Poured a thickly hazed 'cleveland dirty brown' orange with a fluffy small head. Waved lace clings to the glass.

Smells of a freshed baked pumpkin pie. Cinimmaon and brown sugar, along with some sweet malts.

Taste of a freshed baked pumpkin pie, with a bitter drying aftertaste that taste like a freshed baked pumpkin pie.

Mouthfeel is full and crisp.

I have never had a pumpkin beer i enjoyed as much as this one. Get on over to north country and try it while it lasts.... until next year.
