ChrisOs Easter Tasting. Cheers cgarvieuk for sharing this beaut. Hazy amber beer, good cream coloured head. Smooth semi dry palate. Sweet juicy pumpkin! Nice! Mild minerally spices (nice change for a pumpkin beer - not overdone). Has a slightly minty cool aftertaste. Why more purveyors of Pumokin beers can’t brew them like this is beyond me.

yngwie (13345) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 18, 2012
Bottle, 75cl, at TFODRBSG 2012. A big, light beige head forms and diminishes over an unclear, golden-orange body. Hazy. Spiced, fruity nose with a touch of caramel and pine cones. Cinnamon and all spice quite present. The flavor too is on the spiced side, with some caramel maltyness in the back, and spices up front. Pleasant bitterness all the way. Full to medium body. Quite pleasant to drink, but I suspect it will need some appropriate food to shine. 120818

Orangey-amber with a creamy head. Big spice and lots of sugars plus cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and pumpkin. Big brown sugar with more of the same spices. Very rich. Creamy and delicious, this is as big a pumpkin ale as I’ve had and as good.
