“We brew Smuttynose Pumpkin Ale with real pumpkin and a blend of classic pumpkin pie spices in tribute to our colonial forebearers. Recipes calling for the use of pumpkins have been found from early European settlers in New England, when brewers sought to extend their supply of costly imported malt with locally grown ingredients, such as squash and ‘pompions.'”

…in tribute to our colonial forebearers.

Remember Warheads? Those crazy sour hard candies that burned a hole in your cheek if you ate too many of them? (Ok, maybe that was just me?) Wow, those were sour! Smuttynose Pumpkin Ale  isn’t THAT sour, but it’s pretty decently sour. Murky, cloudy appearance. Kind of like Lake Parsippany circa 1992, before a round of chemicals to knock out the algae.

Our testers could not get past the aftertaste- funky, like old gym socks, but burnt. One of our group members exclaimed, “Double thumbs down!” While pouring her sample down the drain.

And that was beer eight of the evening, and none of the previous seven needed to be poured out. So that should say something.

I run this shit.

Picks up whippet poop twice daily. She began her drinking career with the flavored vodkas, and has since moved onto flavored beers. Originally had the idea for this site when she googled "pumpkin beers" and came up with nothing but a couple top 10 lists. Likes cheese. And horror movies.
