16oz draft

Bartender pours a small half finger of head into a tall teardrop glass. Fades quickly. Initial lacing looks decent. Body is a dark brown with hues of orange. Looks fine so far.

Aroma is quite nice, fresh pumpkin, slightly malty, definitely nutmeg, cinnamon too I think. Not too over the top spiced, still smells like pumpkin and not pumpkin pie, though I'm not too picky either way when it comes to this style. Nice solid nose, not outstanding, but very solid.

Flavor is ok. I mean I guess I don't know where I stand on this style, on one hand I want it to taste like beer, on the other hand, it's flavored to taste like pumpkin for a reason. This particular brew is a light pumpkin flavor, still tastes like beer, so I guess it's kinda a wash. Light notes of cinnamon and nutmeg. It's a good pumpkin beer, nothing more.

The body is quite light. Carbonation is somewhat low. It's ok, smooth enough, wouldn't mind a little more character tho.

Drinkability is very high. It's light, un offensive, tasty enough.

The appearance turned out meh, patchy lacing. Party due to a sub par pour, to be sure, but still.

Overall it's an ok beer. The more I drink it, the more I would appreciate a slightly bigger flavor, but it's fine.

Draught pint at The Brass Tap in Baltimore. A nicer looking than drinking beer. VERY little pumpkin smell or taste.

I tried this at The Nook in Huntsville, Alabama. It poured a hazy amber with white head that left some lace. The scent had pumpkin and spice notes. The taste was pumpkin leaning but not enough to make it enjoyable. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it's an ok beer.

This year's version of Rogue Farms Pumpkin Patch Ale is just not hitting the spot for me. The pumpkin is not there enough & it taste sort of watered down. The cost of this fancy looking bottle it is just not worth it folks. Rogue should put some more emphasis on what they are putting inside the bottle than how pretty & eye catching their bottle or can is. Cheers! B-

6.1% ABV. 25 IBU. Really like this beer. It's October so I figured I'd give it a go, and I'm glad I did. Sweet, mild but enjoyable pumpkin taste mixed with subtle earthy spices. Slightly bitter finish. Definitely worth the try. If it didn't cost so much ($13) I'd buy another.

Poured into a small chalice: color is amber, head is light tan with fine bubbles that present about 1/2 inch thick.
Smell is pleasant mix of pumpkin flesh and pumpkin pie spice with cinnamon and ginger notable.
Taste is similar with a notable pumpkin flavor then pumpkin pie spice blend of cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg; light grassy hop character, some breadiness.
Mouthfeel is fairly crisp with quite a bit of drying from the spice level.
Overall a very good pumpkin ale with quality pumpkin character and just enough spices to counter the light flavor.

Moderate pour yields a one slightly off white head over a deep amber or copper body with scant lacing. Nose of pumpkin and spice and everything ni...where was I? Oh yeah. the taste is where the pumpkin pie comes into full effect, very tasty, and just shy of becoming over the top with the spice. Good feel and overall, I would drink this again, at an autumn party with the aforementioned everything nice dragging me along.
Cheers!!!

Rogue Farms Pumpkin Patch Ale brewed by Rogue Ales, with an ABV of 6.10% This pumpkin ale pours into a pint beer glass a nice light brown color with a small white head. There is some spotty light lacing to this brew, it does stick to the side of the glass. The smell is rich with spices and pumpkin. Smells just like pumpkin pie, you pick up cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. The spices might be a little over the top, we shall see. This brew reminds me of fall. Now for the taste, it is rich with lots of spices, with pumpkin flavors. You also pick up on some nice grains and malts in the taste as well. Really an easy drinking brew, there is nothing overpowering about this brew. Rogue Farms Pumpkin Patch Ale has a super nice balance to it. It is really hard to pick up on the 6.10% in this pumpkin ale, it is just that smooth. The mouth feel is Bold, rich, spicy, Pumpkin, clean, smooth and Refreshing. Overall I'm going to give Rogue Farms Pumpkin Patch Ale 4.25 out of 5. I would definitely look this brew up again giving the opportunity to.Rogue Ales, did a real nice job with this pumpkin ale. If you enjoy pumpkin ale or pumpkin pie this is one to look up.

A marzen looking pumpkin beer brewed with real pumpkins, this is the greatest pumpkin beer. Taste is straight up pumpkin with a touch of nutmeg, cinnamon, and Oktoberfest marzen makes this the perfect autumn beer.

L - Opaque brown with a medium tan head that sticks around and leaves some lacing behind. There's a very slight orange glow around the edges. Definitely different compared to the other pumpkin beers that typically have a hue favoring orange but still not a bad looking beer.
S - Pumpkin and fall spices - nutmeg, ginger, cloves, cinnamon.
T - Follows the nose: pumpkin and fall spices: nutmeg, ginger, cloves, cinnamon. The pumpkin is definitely the dominating flavor though. I don't taste too much vanilla - it's there but not as present as it is in other pumpkin ales. There's somewhat of a slight watery aftertaste which is surprising because the initial taste is very flavorful. Sweet malt to tie it all together.
F - medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Nothing off-putting but nothing special in terms of feel.
O - A really good pumpkin beer, but just somewhat lacking in some finer details that make other pumpkin ales, in my opinion, better than this one. This beer tastes very authentic in its pumpkin flavor but is sticking to that "natural" pumpkin flavor, I feel the flavor feels somewhat subdued to other greats in the category. Overall a good beer that's definitely worth a try.

Not a bad beer but the the price should have a heavier mouth feel and a little more pumpkin spice taste. This was a little bland. Plenty of more affordable pumpkin beers out there that are better such as Blue Moon Pumpkin Wheat.
