I made this recipe for the fall. I'm not a big fan of pumpkin spice and so I knew I wouldn't love it, but I made it to share with others and fill growlers for family and friends. I liked it less than most regular brown ales I've made, but my wife and some others really liked this and I was able to get rid of it within a few weeks and free up my keg. I steeped 15 oz of canned pumpkin towards the end of the boil and that did seem to add a bit of flavor but may have meant more gunk and a smaller batch in the end. I think the recipe hits the mark for what it is meant to be (added pumpkin puree for me), but it's just not my type of beer.
Really thought is would have more flavor....
This beer is really tasty. Following other reviews advice I added a 15oz can of pumpkin to the last 15 min of the boil, then added 2 15oz cans to secondary. My wife loves it, everyone loves it. I would like a little more body in the beer, which could be done easy enough, but thatís me being nit picky. I will brew again.
Other than adding additional spices to the ones provided in kit, solid pumpkin ale.
Got two of these while on special. Took Steve's advice and added a 29oz can of pumpkin--went from ok to excellent. Also went with a full oz @60min of northern brewer over the half oz of cascade in the recipe. Balanced much better with the added pumpkin to my taste. Second go with those changes turned out excellent--much better than expected. Knocking off a star because the pumpkin should really be part of the recipe.
