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.

On-tap 10/24/2014 at Doherty’s Ale House in Warwick, RI, served in a tapered pint glass.

A: The beer is a dark amber color, with a large off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains spices, pumpkin, caramelized malts and some hops.

T: The taste starts out with a strong burst of spices (nutmeg & cinnamon) and pumpkin flavors. Then it goes bready with a hearty malt character. The hops presence is decent for the style and brings some balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is dry and slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this is a solid beer for the style but overall it’s just mediocre.
