Cisco Brewers Pumple Drumkin

Beer: Pumple Drumkin
Brewery: Cisco Brewers, Inc.
Style: Pumpkin Ale
ABV: 6.0%

Serving Style: Bottle
Drinking Establishment: Chez Wood
Primary Consumer: Kerensa



Sight: Pours a clear amber with an inch of beige head that quickly recedes. There are some rising carbonation bubbles.

Smell: Never have I smelled a more harmonious blend of hops and spice. There are equal parts flowery hops aroma and sharp allspice aroma.

Flavor: This is one hoppy Pumpkin Ale. In fact, the initial herbal hops presence is so strong that it nearly overpowers any pumpkin or spice taste. However, if you let it breathe, there are some nice mellow malt flavors and a hint of pumpkin.

Feel: Pretty thin with full carbonation.

Concluding Remark: Cisco Brewers, hailing from the fancy New England island of Nantucket, produces one of the hoppier Pumpkin Ales that I have encountered. Brewed with local Nantucket pumpkins, this Pumpkin Ale doesn’t rely on the pumpkin pie spices that many of its peers do. If you want to celebrate the season of holiday brews, but aren’t ready to put down your favorite IPA, give Cisco’s Pumple Drumkin a go. It will satiate your desire for the festive and hoppy.

BTW: What the heck is a Pumple? A Drumkin? The label infers that ‘pumple’ is a noun and ‘drumkin’ is the name of this ‘pumple.’ And that the pumple wobbles like a bumpkin. Is this New England humor? I don’t know.
