Commercial Description

Southampton Pumpkin Ale is a unique amber-colored brew that has a particular appeal during the autumn months and the holidays of Halloween and Thanksgiving. We use a generous amount of pumpkin as well as traditional "pumpkin pie" spices to give this unusual brew a definite seasonal character.

    [Best served in a Lager glass]

    Poured a hazy medium orange/brown with and average sized off white head that was mostly diminishing and had poor lacing. The aroma was heavy of cookie malts and a sweet yeast with strong notes of nutmeg, cinnamon and brown sugar. It tasted slightly bitter/sweet at first but ended with a really nice bitter/sweet/malty flavor with nice hints of nutmeg, cinnamon and pumpkin that was left lingering on the tastebuds for a really nice long while. Mouthfeel was light in body and kind of watery in texture yet nice and creamy on the back end. Overall a very nice tasting pumpkin ale that left me wanting a slice of pie.

    Copper colored with a tan head that is very bubbly, no lacing.
    Aroma of pumpkin spices with hints of vanilla in the backround.
    Flavor of pumpkin and pumpkin spices, nice balance between the two. Tastes like a pumpkin pie that is not too sweet.
    Good carbonation, maybe a little on the thin side but not watery.
    Note...This bottle was contract brewed in Latrobe,Pa. at the old Rolling Rock Brewery!
