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.

Nice reddish copper color. Malty smell with bread notes and subdued pumpkin spices. Nice sweet malty taste with hints of allspice and a yeast flavor reminiscent of pie crust. It is a very solid pumpkin beer that is easy drinking .

12 oz bottle wth a BB Nov. 2014(?) date notch; so just purchased but perhaps a little past BB window.

Pours lightly hazy, orange-amber in color, with a decent semi-durable head that leaves some spotty lacing.

Aroma: a mix of spices and light+medium malts.

Flavor: more spices here; a bit more than ideal in that the malts are mostly masked and the aftertaste emphasizes the spices.

Feel: medium-light body and medium carbonation.

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

Poured from bottle into pint glass

A- Nice, golden hue, seems to glow. Illuminated. Small off-white head with a yellowy tint

S- Pumpkin spices, pumpkin flesh on the nose

T- Slight clean hop taste, melds well with the crisp clean pumpkin and spice taste. Very well balanced, great tasting pumpkin ale. Sweet, but not over the top.

M- Crisp, clean, enjoyable with a slight carbonation prick. Very drinkable. One of few pumpkin beers that I could sit down and spend an evening drinking

O- Great tasting well balanced bold flavors. A nice, drinkable beer that represents the style well.
