From a pumpkin at Holyrood 9A. Pours hazy orange, loads of pumpkin, cinammon, spices, fruity and sweet. Extremely well balanced.

Bottle at home (cheers Benjii!) Slightly hazy dark amber to copper, thick frothy off-white (slightly pink?!) head that sticks around for ever. Looks beautiful. Huge pumpkin pie on the nose, cinnamon sticks, spicy hop, something fizzy and candy and berry-ish even? Lovely earthy sweetness to start with, then caramel malts and a slightly spicy vegetal touch, followed by a wonderfully clean green pepper hop finish that lingers just enough. Yet another stonker from Benjii and Barry - oh you guys!

1 Nov 2012, bottle (thanks to Sev). pinkish amber, steady bubbles. nose is huge pumpkin pie! moderate pumpkin and cinnamon, not too much clove. very enticing. thin body and moderately fizzy. taste is more spiced and less pumpkin than the nose. mild pumpkin and more nutmeg and cinnamon, maybe a bit of green pepper.

[cask, Cloisters Edinburgh] Hazy bright orange pour, thin white head. Aroma of pumpkin and cinnamon, with similar flavours. There was a fantastic balance between the two, however – neither overpowered the other. I was expecting it to be quite sweet, but actually finished pretty dry. The sweet pumpkin and cinnamon/nutmeg flavours faded towards the end into that aftertaste. Very nice [25102012]
