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.

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.
