Style: Pumpkin Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.50%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Smuttynose Pumpkin Ale is our homage to the craft and heritage of America’s brewers. Recipes calling for the use of pumpkins in beer date back to early colonial times, when brewers sought to extend their supply of costly imported malt with locally grown ingredients, such as squash and “pompions.”

In that spirit, we brew our ale with the addition of pumpkin to the mash, along with traditional spices to create a delicious American original.

A: Starts out OK. A hazy orange with tan head.

S: Hmmm. Not much going on. No real spice notes.

T: WOW! Vegetal and bitter. No spice notes detected. Just bitterness and tart. Like unsweetened grapefruit. No pumpkin noted. Lots of bitter noted.

M: Medium

O: Disappointed. Being a Smutty fan....this left me wanting no more.
