3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The mouth feel is very creamy with the pumpkin gliding in on the tongue. Followed immediately by a wave of spices which are slightly overwhelming. Something tastes slightly rubbery and i can’t exactly put my finger on it. Overall i probably wouldn’t have wanted to have more than the single one i got.

Hazy brown with a thin white head. Sweet aroma of caramel and cinnamon. Taste confirms the sweetness, adding pumpkin, cake, chocolate. Creamy, medium bodied, not much bitterness here. Surprisingly a very good ale!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ein absolut klassisches Pumpkin Ale mit einer leichten Fruchtigkeit, etwas Strenge und einer mit der Zeit etwas unangenehmen Süße. Durchaus trinkbar, nett, aber man gewöhnt sich zu schnell an diese Biersorte.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12fl.oz. bottle from 2015 Craft Beer Advent Calendar. Pours a clear mahogany with a large. long lasting, creamy, beige head that laces. Nice aroma of caramel malt, pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, clove and bread. Sweet, spicy flavour of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, clove and caramel malt with a hint of hops in a tangy, dry, slightly bitter finish. Light to medium body with a creamy, oily texture and soft carbonation. Well done, as far as pumpkin ales go.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Nose deep and malty, strong physical pumpkin with some earth and sweet spices. Pours deep blood red that’s dark brown at full volume, supports a thick tan head. Taste dry to start with strong scratchy spice and plenty of earth, picks up fruit (mainly red berry) with each sip and thus gains some sweetness; bitterness stronger than expected, about medium on my scale, and notable in the finish. Earthy, malty, pine from medium hops, mild chocolate with is hard to notice at first but adds nice, swirling complexity by the end. Touch caramel, nutmeg the strongest spice and could be pulled back a bit, but the others show some restraint. Bold flavor with body and seemingly more alcohol. As far as these go, good enough for two, but that might be enough for the entire season. [2015.11.15: 3.2]

Sample tasting at Hackney’s Printers Row. Highly spiced and herbal....this tastes like Jagermeister. Nuff said.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2015 Beer Advent Calendar. Pours mahogany creamy head. Aroma is like a small town gift shop, one that sells all the Pintrest style Christmas decorations and candles scented for the season. All your seasonal aromas are here, as stated in the deScription.
Taste is surprisingly chocolaty, caramel, blasted pumpkin spice,maybe orange. Good beer, for a blasted pumpkin one.
