Notes / Commercial Description:
Fall is a beautiful time in Montauk. The leaves change color, the air cools off, the traffic thins, and the beaches clear out. Montauk Pumpkin Ale is a sign of the season - just the right amount of spices along with subtle hop aromas, this beer highlights the time of year just perfectly.

Poured from a 12oz can into a montauk pumpkin shaker pint.

Look is a clear dark amber with a head that dissipates quickly.

Aroma is amber malt with a light spice.

Malt disappears behind heavy slicing, lots of nutmeg and a little cinnamon.

This is the beer of the fall season for me. After my first one, I made sure I had enough to last me through Thanksgiving. Montauk really scored a bullseye here. 'metter98' described the beer perfectly and objectively, so I won't go into details. It has a beautiful coppery tone and the taste follows the bouquet closely. Not to sweet and not too dry, nice spice, and a reasonably low ABV, 5.7, make it a winner for me. I will say that this is one of the few beers that lives up to its name and makes me demand more. I generally have one beer a day and lately this is the one I've been going to everyday for the last couple weeks. Went through three six packs and have four left. I was able to find it at Target of all places. Delicious!

Taste like a Pumking light (not a bad thing). It just has less alcohol than PK is all. Pumking is 8.6% while Montauk Pumpkin Ale is 5.7% alc./vol. That being said it doesn't take away from the pumpkin spice taste which is also a bit of sweet flavor. I highly recommend this pumpkin ale if you're a fan of Pumking. More bang for your buck with Montauk as PK can be a bit pricey. Yeah they balanced this ale out just right!! Pleasant tasting beer for pumpkin fans and Autumn season lovers. Enjoy! & Cheers!!

A: The beer is clear dark coppery orange in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that consistently left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of pumpkins are present in the nose along with subtle notes of pumpkin spices.
T: The taste follows the smell, having pumpkin flavors front and center with strong accompanying notes of pumpkin spices.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I found this beer to be very balance—both between the pumpkins and the spices and also among the pumpkin spices because it was difficult to really pick out any one spice in particular as they all seemed to mesh together in unison.

Serving type: can
