Pumple Drumkin:

So many people have fallen into what I see as a pumpkin beer crazed fervor. Most of the hysteria surrounds Shipyard’s Pumpkin Ale, but lemme tell ya, pumpkin-heads, there are plenty of other options. Luckily for me, one of those options is a local beer from Nantucket, an island off of Cape Cod.
Pumple pulls you in with a spicy and complex fall aroma, but the beer itself is very subtle with its flavoring; nutmeg, ginger and cloves, from what I could make out. The actual pumpkin taste is even slightly masked by a sweet caramel malt that leads into a burnt aftertaste. Light hops help to round the beer off. And quite a lively carbonation! Really enjoyed this beer and will be adding it to my autumn repertoire. Keep me posted on some other pumpkin beers to keep an eye out for that aren’t Shipyard!
