BREWER’S NOTES: This unique blend of pumpkin, coriander, butternut, cinnamon and nutmeg is a complexed mix full with flavour. Its a rich blend of unusual ingredients that leave you wanting more.

TASTING NOTES:

  • APPEARANCE: Pours brown in colour, with medium sized cream coloured head. Some lacing present.
  • AROMA: A ripe boquet of spices and toasted malt. Cinnamon, nutmeg, notes of pumpkin.
  • FLAVOUR: Bold autumn spices up front, cinnamon, nutmeg, coriander and sweet pumpkin with a rich toasted malt backbone, and a slight bitter ending.
  • MOUTHFEEL: Full bodied, creamy smooth with good carbonation levels.
  • OVERALL: This fully flavoured pumpkin ale from Boston Breweries oozes all the Autumness that you would hope to encounter from a traditionally Autumn seasonal brew.
  • PAIR WITH: Pork tenderloin, with a sweat glazing, served with roasted pumpkin, avoid anything too salty as this will retract from the sweet spicy flavours of the pumpkin ale.

BREW REVIEW RATING: 8.5/10
