3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Gravity cask at the Birmingham CAMRA Beer Festival 2015. Poured a clear medium to dark brown with a thin broken white head. The aroma is light sweet malt, some pumpkin but not a lot. The flavour is light bitter sweet with a crisp, fresh light pumpkin light woody hop palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Cask at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) A clear ruby brown colour with a medium white head. Aroma of toffee, some nuts, slight dark berries, subtle spice and maybe a little chocolate. Taste of toffee, some chocolate, nuts, slight dark berries, subtle cinnamon and late earthy bitterness. Light bodied and a smooth texture. A dry, toffee and earthy bitterness in the finish. Not really a pumpkin ale but it’s a decently smooth bitter/brown ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at the Monk’s Retreat (JDW), Reading. Brown with a moderate cream head and a surprisingly lively fizz for a cask ale. Strong toffee aroma is rather appealing. Toffee and malt dominates throughout, and although the mouthfeel is a little thin, the flavour is rich throughout. Not sure about the pumpkin, but there seems to be some cinnamon and chocolate coming through. And, bizarrely, some roast beef. And brown sauce. Quite liked this, although felt oddly guilty for doing so. On a blind tasting I would have classified it as a brown ale. Some crackly Autumn leaves and leaf mulch completed what was quite an interesting beer.
