Pumpkin pie in a glass! We cut up 150 pounds of pie pumpkins, roasted them until they were brown at the edges and added them to our mash. The beer was spiced with traditional pumpkin pie spices instead of finishing hops.

    Oct. 2010 - Newark location. I hate pumpkin beers. I don’t like beers that taste like some store bought spiced cookie, which is how most pumpkin ales taste. This is far and away the best pumpkin ale I’ve had. The base is a malty caramel that reminds one of a good amber ale. The sweet pumpkin fruitiness is present, but doesn’t scream, "HEY LOOK AT ME!". It’s just there, and it’s cool. Mild spiciness gives this one some balance, again, without stealing the show. I still didn’t love it (I think I’m hopeless when it comes to pumpkin ales), but this one was far and away the best I’ve had.

    Poured a dark dark golden color with small head and good lacing. Aroma was spices and pumpkin. Flavor was a good blend of the 2 a little sweet for me but still good.

    Poured with an amber color, decent head, good retention, good lacing. The aroma was spicey, pumpkins. The flavor was pretty well balanced for a pumpkin ale, nice touch of pumpkins as well as cinnamon and nutmeg, not overboard on either. Mouthfeel moderate but fairly well carbonated, keeping this a little on the dry side (nothing cloying or spicey annoying!).

    Drank one of these at the Media location today. Had a nice, dark gold color with a little bit of head. Easy to drink. A little sweet. Plenty of pumpkin flavor and spices. Very enjoyable, but not quite the best pumpkin ale I've tried.
