Notes / Commercial Description:
Country Pumpkin is our medium-bodied harvest ale brewed with a medley of flavorful malt, pumpkin puree, Magnum hops and a touch of seasonal spices.The masterful blend of 2-Row, Vienna, Munich, Caramunich and Honey malt with Magnum hops balances the sweet pumpkin with an aroma of nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger and allspice to create a rich, malty ale for the autumn season.Delight in the deep golden-orange glow while savoring the complex, malt-forward flavors and surprisingly dry finish of our new curcubitaceous ale.

Yet again, a pumpkin beer decides to OD on spice. This beer has zero pumpkin flavor to it

Poured from a bottle into a conical pint glass.

Appearance- Nice appearance, a burnt orange. Small head , about 1/2 finger, light retention, light lacing.

Smell- Spices are apparent, especially allspice and nutmeg. Pumpkin is weaved in between these spices but not as bold. I smell almost no malts, but did catch snips of alcohol.

Taste- Not at all what I was expecting. The alcohol is overpowering and completely oppresses the spices and pumpkin apparent in the aroma. A light hoppy flavor is detectable on the finish.

Mouthfeel- A little on the lighter side of carbonation. A medium body, smooth, almost creamy.

Overall- I'm not saying this is a bad beer or even that I didn't enjoy it. I just felt that for being a Pumpkin Ale, the pumpkin and spices were too overpowered.
