Pours a copper orange colour with a small white head. Aroma of pumpkin pie, cinnamon and green apples. Flavour of quite intense pumpkin notes, chamomil, biscuity malts, cinnamon and some bitterness. Medium bodied, smooth mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Warming finish with pumpkin notes. Great stuff.

Orange/amber pour with a white head. Spicy nose of nutmeg and all spice. A bit of clove and lots of toasted bread. A slight fruitiness on the back end, too. The flavor is actually a bit bitter. Spicy flavor profile for the most part. Nutmeg, clove, and all spice notes dominate. A little bit of toast, some bread, and a hint of pumpkin.
