Out of the pumpkin ales I've been able to try (not very many) this one is definitely my favorite.

Doesn't overdue it with the "holiday" spices and finishes very clean.

Definitely worth a try if you are a pumpkin ale advocate.

Best pumpkin beer there is. For me if i want a pumpkin beer i want it to taste like pumpkins. This company has their own pumpkin patch and they brew with their own pumpkins, can't get better than that. I had it in a tulip and drank it while carving pumpkins and watching football. The color is dark brown like you'd get in a good marzen Oktoberfest beer, not brown like Newcastle but Oktoberfest brown. It's Damn good, if it weren't $11 a bottle I'd buy it every year. It's a must try for everyone interested in a good pumpkin beer. Tastes like pumpkin mixed with Oktoberfest perfect for Halloween. It has hints of cinnamon and nutmeg that is so subtle it doesn't take away the delicious taste of pumpkin. This is what you want to taste in pumpkin beer. So glad I finally found the perfect pumpkin beer. Smells like pumpkins too.

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.

This beer is one of my favorites

I have tried virtually all of the pumpkin beers there are at my liquor store. They have around 25 so in my opinion this one tops them all.

Yes very pricey at 12 dollars a bottle. It is 25 oz. though so that is not bad.

It is very hard to describe but has a full flavor and does not lack in the pumpkin department like a lot of pumpkin beers.

You must purchase the beer first and foremost to understand it, Rogue did a great job and I will be trying more of their beer shortly.

Personally think this pumpkin beer is underrated. Well balanced, not too sweet, pumpkin bread taste. Beautiful color, great long lasting head and good lacing when poured into a snifter. I just opened a bottle of the 2015 brew.

Rogue Farms' Pumpkin Patch Ale gets everything right that most pumpkin ales these days get wrong.

First, the smell. A fresh pour of Pumpkin Patch into a tulip glass hits the nose right away with the aroma of pumpkin pie, as if one was standing over a freshly made pie, using one's hand to waft the molecules toward one's face. There is more emphasis on the vegetal pumpkin as opposed to the spices usually associated with pumpkin beers (cinnamon, cloves, etc.). This is a good thing. Left to sit for 10-15 minutes, and as it warms, the spice notes grow more noticeable, but are never aggressive or overwhelming. The aromas offer a really pleasant preview of what is to come as you tip the glass back.

Now for the taste. True to the aromas, Pumpkin Patch hits the tongue with mellow but distinct flavors of vegetal pumpkin, followed by moderate elements of cinnamon and clove. Again, as with the aromas, the flavors are moderate and mellow and make for a really enjoyable drinking experience. The beer finishes with a slight sweetness, and goes down easy. The pumpkin flavor lingers for a long while after, smooth and pleasant.

For those who care about its look, it pours with a reddish-brown color, and nearly no head. For me, what matters most is how a beer smells and tastes. And it smells and tastes wonderful. Well done, Rogue Farms.

Poured from a Bomber into a pint glass. Pumpkin beer is one of my favorite styles of beer. This brew has a great pumpkin aroma and flavor. A well balanced blend of pumpkin and hops. I look forward to the autumn just for this beer.
