750 mL painted bottle served in pint glass. Beer pours a nice red color with a huge foamy tan head. Big pumpkin pie aroma. Creamy and luscious from the first sip, offset with a biting carbonation. I think it could stand to warm up.

This beer happily blends real pumpkin flavor with a heavy dose of pie spices. I especially get ginger and nutmeg, though apparently there's even vanilla in here. Sweet flavors, but not sugary. Aftertaste is a little dull with some mysterious residue. Overall I'm finding this very enjoyable. Not the best beer to bring out the flavor of fresh pumpkin pie spices, but a great example of a pumpkin beer that showcases spice without neglecting gourd.

This ale hit the shelves later than most which I like. Something strange about pumpkin ales in July in Florida...per Rogue the later release was due to growing their own GYO pumpkins and declining to use canned pumpkin. This is an attractive beer with hazy reddish orange body with creamy yellow head. The aroma of pumpkin pie spices is more subtle than other examples of this style, also a plus. The taste: this is , I am happy to report, my favorite of the years pumpkin ales! I've tried a BUNCH of them this year. Well balanced but not boring and no chemical off tastes. I know there is a fair Amount of variability in this style from year to year, ie Weyerbacher was great last year but disappointing this year, but hopefully Rogue will hit the mark again in subsequent years!

750 mL bottle from the LCBO; bottled on Oct 4 2012 and listed at 6.0%. I was getting a little sick of trying pumpkin ales a few months back when they flooded onto the shelves, but after a few months' abstention from such brews, I'm ready for more gourdy goodness. Poured into a snifter.

Pours a deep orange-bronze colour, muddy with sediment, and topped at first with two fingers of frothy, off-white head. Retention isn't great; it seeps away over the next few minutes, leaving behind a soapy film and narrow collar at the surface, as well as some scant lacing. The aroma is spicy and appealing, with lots of gingerbread and fresh pumpkin pie, as well as accents of allspice, cinnamon and nutmeg. It's a slightly sweet bouquet with a nice, underlying mashed pumpkin feel, but the spice is definitely in the forefront here. This kind of makes me nervous, because I tend to prefer balanced pumpkin beers, not spice bombs.

That worrying turned out to be for naught though, as the taste is deftly balanced between sweet maltiness, dry spiciness, and pumpkin flavour. The nutmeg and cinnamon grab my attention at first, followed quickly by some buttered pie crust, brown sugar, pecan and mashed pumpkin that gradually overtakes the spice. The clove shows up more toward the finish, alongside hints of allspice, orange zest and leafy hops. Spicy, lingering aftertaste that clings to the palate. Medium-bodied, about right for a 6.0% brew; although the carbonation is biting and nearly distracting. Ridiculously drinkable, perhaps moreso than any other pumpkin ale I've tried previously. Not boozy at all; I can't detect any ethanol.

Final Grade: 4.3, an excellent A grade. Rogue's Pumpkin Patch Ale is a fine specimen of this occasionally-obnoxious style - everything is balanced perfectly, with lots of spicy goodness for those who enjoy that aspect of the style, but never going overboard. This is not a spice/booze bomb that will exhaust your palate. The malty sweetness, gourdy flavours and (relatively) dense body do their part keeping the spice in check, generating an unbelievably quaffable spiced ale. As much as I love Pumking, I like this stuff nearly as much, although for different reasons. Pumpkin Patch is obviously much lighter and nuanced, and for that reason I would suggest it as a perfect introductory pumpkin ale for newbies interested in trying the style. I would also highly recommend it to seasoned pumpkin-loving BAs who are looking for a great fall/winter spiced sipper. Cheers!

Production Date: Oct. 4, 2012

A: Pours a cloudy red body with two fingers of off white head. Retention is minimal and leaves some lacing.

S: Strong front of pumpkin and spice. Mix of spices I can't pick out follow. Very pleasing aroma.

T: Tons of pumpkin and spice. First beer of this type that isn't strong on the spice than the pumpkin. Delicious.

M: Medium bodied with low low carbonation. Leaves a sweet aftertaste. Alcohol doesn't come through either.

O: Pleasing pumpkin ale, the taste, body and aroma are all spot on. Though, for the price, it can't beat out some of the local brews for much cheaper. A solid make from Rogue none the less.

750ml bottle into block15 snifter. Purchased for $8.49.

A: Pours a lightly hazy ruby amber with three fingers of soft looking off-white head. Head slowly faded into a thick and lasting fuzzy film that left thick streaks of lace down the glass.
S: Dominating notes of pumpkin spice on the nose. Fresh pumpkin, cinnamon, clove, lemon zest, allspice, cardamom and pepper mix well to create one of the more natural and inviting pumpkin beers I’ve come across.
T: More pumpkin like the nose but perhaps not as rich. In addition to everything mentioned I get flavors of brown sugar and orange citrus rind. The sweetness falls off in the finish and the aftertaste is full of lingering spices.
M: This is where the beer falls short. The body is on the thin side of medium and the mouthfeel is slightly watery. The real problem is there are far too many bubbles. If this beer was slightly thicker and far less carbonated it was be awesome.
O: Great flavor for the style, not overly spices nor synthetic and syrupy tasting like many are. Let this beer warm up and burn off a few of the bubbles and you’ve got a great evening sipper.

P: Murky dark brown body with hints of orange. Big dense creamy tan froth that settles to a bubbly layer of creaminess.

S: Aroma is killer! Fresh pumpkin pie with whipped cream. Roasted (real) pumpkin, nutmeg, brown sugar, allspice, clove, barley and notes of cream.

T/M: Spice forward with a backsplash of delicious roasted pumpkin and toasted salted pumpkin seeds. Gingerbread cookies grace the palette once warmed. Medium-full body with gentle prickly carbonation. Finish is creamy and smooth with a dose of spiced hops and pumpkin seeds.

O: Fantastic pumpkin ale! This is full flavored not diluted and has real pumpkin flavor. This is the best pumpkin ale I have has the pleasure of drinking. Hats off to Rogue for this masterpiece. Cheer!

Orange bodied with some creamy head and lace. Spicy aroma. Smooth mouthfeel. A better than average pumpkin ale.LCBO score.Good cinammon, cloves, star anise, pepper, vanilla. Good drinkability. I like that there is ore spice than pumpkin vegetable flavour.

I poured a bottle into a mug.

Appearance- Clear coppery- brown with two fingers worth of a lingering, light tan foamy head. There is a lot of sticky lacing.

Smell- Clove , nutmeg, allspice, and caramel malts.

Taste- Pumpkin pie flavor with a strong spice presence, especially the nutmeg and clove.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied with a generous amount of carbonation. Very, very smooth and creamy.

Overall- Very enjoyable, this is one of the better pumpkin beers that I have tried. Maybe Rogue needs to turn down the spice a tad but it is still a good beer.

22oz served in an Allagash cervoise

A - Pours a dark reddish copper color with an egg cream head. Darker than most pumpkin beers.

S - Dried spiced, nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, sweet pumpkin, brown sugar, nutty yeast

T - Sweet and creamy pumpkin pie flavor, good bill of spice, allspice and cardamom being the most prominent, the cinnamon is faint. Pecans, cream, there's a clean character in there as well. The spice runs long into the finish

M - Moderate carbonation, thick feel, medium full body,

Very good for the style. It's full flavored with plenty of pumpkin and rides the edge of too spicy while maintaining a steady sweetness. Like this one alot.

Very dark for the style as it pours a dark brown with some coppery red mixed in. Not hazy, but still dark enough to be opaque. The head is a finger and a half thick of very contrasting white bubbles. The two contrasting colors work well.

Not so much pumpkin as it is pumpkiny spices. Cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, caramel malt. Killer smell.

Like the smell, it's all about the pumpkin spices and not so much about the pumpkin. The scents are good, but they come across the taste buds as aggressive. It's certainly not a bad taste, just very strong in the spice area, particularly in the swallow. Again, all the tastes are good, just extremely in your face.

It's a bit spicy, even though the spices are pleasant. Very aggressive on the palate, almost too much. There's a hint of sweet from the malt, but the spices take over immediately and don't slow til well into the finish. No real hop presence because of the spicy feel.

Overall it's a good beer, just a bit in your face. Looks and smells greats, then takes a step back. A bit of mellowing would likely help.

Pours browinsh yellow. Unfiltered with a good amount of head that lingers around the rim but little to no lacing left on the glass. Smell reveals pumpkin, nutmeg and a heavy dose of brown sugar. Taste is similar with maybe a bit of cinammon. Spices are forward present and linger well onto the backend. Very good beer for the season.

A- The beer pours medium brown in color, with red hues when held to the light. The head is tan with moderate retention. Lacing is minimal.

S- Lots of spice up front. Getting a lot of nutmeg, clove and all spice. The nose is all in all very aromatic yet one dimensional.

T- Again the spices hit strong upfront. The pallet is bombarded with nutmeg and clove. The hops profile keeps it some what balanced with a slight piney bitterness.

M- Medium body in mouth feel with medium carbonation.

O- This is a slightly above average pumpkin ale, kind of a spice bomb. Its flavorful and festive but not very well balanced. Could use a little work.

Most pumpkin ales have a bright, cheery pumpkin orange colour, but Chatoe Rogue Pumpkin Patch looks like roasted pumpkin (which it is brewed with). Dark as though it were left in the oven a few minutes too long, the beer is nonetheless super sleek, with sparkling clarity and glossy mahogany highlights. Even its head appears off-coloured and has a dusty tinge.

Pumpkin Patch smells of mulled cider and toffee-apple - is there a better, more comforting fall-time treat? If I could turn liquid to wax with a touch of my finger I would use this bottle as an incense candle. My house would smell amazing. As usual it is he who shouts the loudest that wins and, in this case, that's cinnamon (though clove and nutmeg help make the perfumed experience truly 'surround-sound').

Trying to single out each individual spice in a pumpkin ale is like trying to tune-in to a single instrument in a philharmonic. Not only is it difficult but it also misses the point: like a well balanced orchestra, how the different components compliment and accentuate one another is ultimately what matters most. Pumpkin Patch has a tight group of spices that taken altogether is delightfully fine, fresh and beautifully scented.

The 2012 vintage lists cinnamon, orange peel, clove, and nutmeg as accessories to the roasted pumpkin. Not listed on the ingredients list but tasted are handfuls of pecans, toffee brittle, toast, apple cider and the slightest brush of lemon juice. As for pumpkin itself, squash is definitely CEO but doesn't micromanage and allows the clove and citrus to punctuate the finish.

Most impressively, the beer has an almost custard-thick texture. No flour or pumpkin puree in the house? This is all the filling you need for a pie! The only problem are those pesky bubbles, which come on a little strong and push the sweet-spicy flavours through at an unfortunately hurried pace (especially since the recipe steers clear of the excessive spiciness that plagues some of its pumpkin ale peers).

Chatoe Rogue First Growth Pumpkin Patch features a sweet-savory-spicy combo that evokes the most solacing of fall-time comforts. It's the beer equivalent of coming home to Mom's cooking. "Greens" feel free to use this ale as proof of the benefits of using locally farmed ingredients. While this would undoubtedly pair with a number of autumn delicacies, a bottle this size makes for a satisfying treat in its own right.

Chilled bomber into two shaker pints, no visible bottling date. 2012 (orange bottle) release.

Look- darker than expected, hazy brown with orange highlights. Opaque. Two fingers of toasted coconut head, decent retention, sparse lacing.

Smell- Aromatic, brown sugar, pumpkin/squash, cinnamon, mace, fairly sweet. Something vaguely fruity, but I can't quite put my finger on it. Candied grapefruit? Nice.

Taste- Similar to the aroma, straightforward but nice. Brown sugar, roasted pumpkin, vanilla, autumn spice. A touch of darker roast towards the middle, toasted biscuit. finishes with cinnamon and mace, aftertaste is light, whipped pumpkin pie filling.

Mouthfeel- Medium body, smooth carbonation. Full but not too heavy or syrupy, creamy feel.

Overall- Just what I was expecting, a well executed pumpkin ale with layered caramel, spice, and roasted pumpkin. Well done, certainly better than the average pumpkin beer. The price tag's a bit hefty at $10/bomber, but I'd certainly try it on tap.

Pours hazy chestnut colour with a moderate head that makes its way down to just a thin ring. Minimal spotty lace.

Aroma is just a whiff of spice, earthiness, alcohol. A touch of sweet malt, too

Lots of caramel malt to taste. Undertstated spice (thank goodness). Earthiness from pumpkin. Dark fruit. And alcohol. Mouthfeel is quite soft, a little bit of creaminess keeps iit from being thin bodied.

An evenhanded approach to a pumpkin brew, quite drinkable. Not overly spiced. A little too boozy for a 6% brew, though. Alcohol just a little too present.

Pours a murky brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Small particles of sediment are seen floating around after the pour. Smell is of toasted malt, biscuit, earthy pumpkin, and some spice aromas. Taste is much the same with a toasty and spice finish. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

Poured chilled into a snifter.

Pours a medium brown with an inch of airy tan head that quickly recedes and leaves little to no surface layer or lacing.

Aromas of pumpkin, spice and carmel malts.

Taste follows through from the aromas. Spice, carmel, vanilla and pumpkin and a nutty background.

Body is light to medium with moderate carbonation. It does have a nutty aftertaste that lingers, that I personally didn't care for.

Overall a good representation of the style. Nothing really sticks out, but nothing is overdone either, which can be a problem with some pumpkin beers.

A - Pours a slightly hazy dark amber colour, finger of head with solid retention and no real lacing.

S - Heavily spiced, with cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves coming through alongside a light earthy pumpkin scent.

T - Much like the nose, but the spicing is pleasant rather than overpowering. The earthy pumpkin comes through on the finish with a touch of leafy greens, vanilla, and buttery caramels.

M - Medium bodied, a tad prickly and finishes wet.

O - Overall a tasty pumpkin ale that is surprisingly well balanced, and doesn't overwhelm the palette with spicing. Easily sessioned and well worth trying out if you're a pumpkin ale fan.

No freshness date on the bottle. ABV is listed at 6% rather than 5.6% (may be the result of LCBO lab testing).

Beer is an orange-brown colour with a moderately sized off-white head. Head dissipates quickly.

Nose contains cinnamon, clove, pumpkin, nutmeg. The expected pumpkin ale scents. Good.

Like the nose, the first thing I get is cinnamon, clove and nutmeg. The pumpkin is right behind. The orange peel comes through a bit as well. Spices are dominant, but not overwhelming. Quite a nice pumpkin ale.

Medium bodied, moderate to high carbonation, chewy.

Overall, a good pumpkin ale. Nothing revolutionary but tasty.

Glassware: Tulip pint
Purchased: Single from Midtown, Nashville

A: Brown/orange beer with hazy clarity. The head is 2 fingers high, tan, with good lacing and a fair amount of retention.

S: Big pumpkin aromas, with pumpkin pie spices such as nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice and clove. Smells overall are sweet and malty, with not much hop aroma.

T: Taste is sweet and spicy with a lot of pumpkin flavor. Also has a vanilla note. Sweet but not cloying.

M: Medium in body and in carbonation, the finish is malty sweet and has lots of pumpkin pie spice notes.

O: Very good pumpkin ale -- it packs a lot of flavor in for a lower-ABV brew.

750ml bottle poured into a pint glass
A: Orange-ish brown with a 1/2-finger head that quickly settles.
S: Distinct pumpkin smell along with the full range of pumpkin pie spices (cinnamon/ginger/nutmeg/clove), each distinct. And I'll be damned if the evaporated milk, egg and pie shell aren't there too. This really does show every one of the aromas of each ingredient of a pumpkin pie, of which I've made dozens. Great job, Rogue!
T: The spices are a bit heavy in the overall balance. But the authentic tasting pumpkin is there and it's pleasant overall.
M: Again a bit heavy with a spicy kick and I'd prefer it to be a little more creamy (feels a bit thin) but in general I can't complain.
O: I really like the bottle and the amount of detail it explains as to how/where it's made and it's composition. I LOVE the nose. Though the flavors/mouthfeel are a bit unbalanced towards the spicy side and I wish it looked nicer, overall one of the better pumpkin beers I've had this year though, all things considered.

750ml orange paint covered bottle into a snifter. Wow the packaging here sure is a standout when sitting on the shelf. I hope other brewers dont follow this format and turn the beer isles into a crayola box. The brew pours a clouded amber brown color. A finger of creamy off-white head appears across the top and fades to a thin ring. 

The nose smells of cinnamon and fruity to citrus hops mixed with something like ginger zest. There is an earthen element running throughout the profile like the expected minorly vegetative inclusion of punpkin. Some caramel to toffee grain is alsp present before the onset of solvent alcohol.

The flavor is full of biscuit sort of grain quality and earthy to vegetative pumpkin flesh. There is some accenting cinnamon spice and fruity tinges that creep into more of a veggie aspect towards the back. As more sips are taken, some caramel to vanilla sweetness comes out and the aftertaste includes a minor nutmeg flavoring.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. It is smooth and easy drinking. Overall it is a pretty average pumpkin offering. I probably would not buy this again despite it's eye catching appeal on the shelf.

Hazy deep amber/orange colour, ring of off white head, little lace as well. Smell is spicy with lots of distinct pumpkin flesh, caramel, nutmeg and a touch of cinnamon with a bit of a hop kick here as well. Taste is lots of pumpkin spice up front, cinnamon, clove, mid palate sweetness, followed by a delicious and welcomed caramel malty flavour that sort of cuts through the pumpkin spice. Lightly carbonated, medium body, good weight. Quite the nice pumpkin beer even at a point when I was growing tired of pumpkin beers, flavourful and quite drinkable but due to pice point and bottle size I don't think me and this beer will be crossing paths again.

2012 release. Orange bottle.

Slightly hazy brown pour with slight red highlights. Half finger soapy off white head. Lacing is minimal.

Pumpkin right up front, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and brown sugar. I don't get the orange as advertised on the bottle. I also don't see the point in it.

Pumpkin and cinnamon. The orange actually comes through and with the cloves actually works. Brown sugar and vanilla with slight digestive cookies.

Light body, medium to low carbonation.

Hazy burnt orange colour with red highlights. Pale beige head is large and tightly formed, but not very retentive. Patchy lace. Malty brown sugar aroma with pumpkin, orange zest, and spice notes. Toasted malt up-front followed closely by a vegetal note from the pumpkin puree and a melange of spices. Nutmeg and cinnamon are more prominent than clove. A nutty character persists throughout. Almost medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a soft, gentle mouthfeel. The pumpkin and spice character is strong enough to be easily noticed, but restrained enough to allow the base malt character of the beer to shine through. There is some sweetness to it, but not a whole lot. It certainly isn't Pumking. An extremely well balanced take on a style that many find either overpowering or underflavored. This one finds the middle ground.
