Pumpkin Beers Reviews

Stevens Point Brewery Whole Hog Pumpkin Ale
93 points
Cloudy copper color. Attractive, toasty aromas of fresh pumpkin cheesecake, carrot cake, and cinnamon roll with a supple, finely carbonated, fruity medium body and a smooth, distinctive, long crusty apple pie, chestnut toffee, and spiced melon finish. A remarkably attractive and super tasty pumpkin spice beer.
Potosi Brewing Company Stingy Jack Pumpkin Ale
91 points
Deep amber color. Spicy aromas and flavors of pumpkin pie and zucchini bread with a supple, vibrant, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, interesting, long finish revealing notes of pepper, radicchio, and dried citrus finish. A snappy and refreshing, well-hopped pumpkin beer with emphasis on the peppery end of the spice spectrum.
Samuel Adams Fat Jack Pumpkin Ale
90 points
Dark copper color. Spicy aromas and flavors of spiced nuts and zucchini bread toast with a silky, bright, finely carbonated, dryish medium body and a silky, engaging, relaxed finish displaying notes of yams and lettuce finish. A nice dry, chewy take on the often too-sweet pumpkin beer style.
Samuel Adams 20 Pounds of Pumpkin Ale
89 points
Dark copper color. Spicy, grassy aromas and flavors of spicy flan and sweet potato puree with a slightly chewy, bright, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a warming, compelling, medium-long finish with suggestions of pumpkin soufflé, hint of spiced apple, and pepper finish. A nice chewy pumpkin ale that drinks a bit like a spiced bock.
Shmaltz Brewing Company Reunion Ale 15 Pumpkin Beer
86 points
Dusty red oak color. Spicy, sweet aromas and flavors of turmeric, lit incense, gingerbread, and clove oil with a satiny, bright, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a smooth, interesting, medium-length finish with notes of chocolate scone, nuts, and hint of cedar finish. A solid, well-spiced pumpkin beer.
Brouwerij Timmermans Pumpkin Lambicus
85 points
Brilliant copper color. Spicy aromas and flavors of spiced apples, artisanal cola, and waxy honeycomb with a supple, crisp, effervescent, sweet-and-sour light-to-medium body and an interesting, medium finish that presents overtones of tamarind soda, zucchini bread, and nutskin finish. An interesting spiced soda like ale.
Horseheads Brewing Pumpkin Ale
85 points
Brilliant copper color. Spicy aromas and flavors of pumpkin pie filling with a supple, crisp, effervescent, fruity light-to-medium body and a fast finish conveying impressions of candied yams, grass, and cinnamon apple jack cereal finish. A light and refreshing, session pumpkin beer.
