Pumpkin Down

Scottish Ale with Pumpkin

A pumpkin ale that bucks the trend.
Some might think we’re out of our gourd for making a pumpkin ale, but our Pumpkin Down is not like the others.  The caramel and toffee maltiness of our Piper Down Scottish ale is the perfect backdrop for a boatload of roasted pumpkin. Just before bottling, we add a subtle amount of spice to complement, but not overwhelm, the earthy flavor. It was a smash at the brewery, and we think you’ll agree.

With a deep orange hue reminiscent of pumpkin pie, a Scottish ale is the perfect backdrop for this beer. A three hour boil enhances the caramel and toffee flavors provided by the British malts. Just before bottling, a small amount of spices are added to compliment, but not overwhelm, the pumpkin flavor.
