Notes / Commercial Description:
The 2012 harvest on our Mom & Pop’s farm was fruitful and this brew uses 100 fresh pumpkins and 40 organic squash.

Uses locally grown Triticale from MA.

Modest head that settles down to rim bubbles and fine layer on the center of the glass. No lace, save for one space. Deep copper color, near brown. Light chill haze.

The smell is a blend of cinnamon, brown sugar and cooked pumpkin. There's a bit of alcohol and malt sugar. No notable hop.

This is a rich beer with strong malt overtones. Probably comes closest to a Scotch Ale. Not too sweet, but the malt is the dominant flavor here. Pumpkin is decently present but not overwhelming. I would consider this one of the better pumpkin offerings.

Bottle from Resdstone.
Pours a crystal clear orange amber color with a decent sized off white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Aromas mostly of nutmeg and cinnamon with a little bit of brown sugar. The flavor is sweet with a bready brown sugary maltiness. Cinnamon and nutmeg provide the only counter to the sweetness and the malt is winning. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet spiced mouthfeel. Decent enough pumpkin beer, I couldn't drink much of this, but its better than most.
