COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, Seasonal;
Made with Styrian Dana hops and infused with real pumpkin, the new ale is our first bitter specifically brewed for Halloween and offers a real autumnal flavour. With a burnt, smoky character, balanced with light citrus flavours, Pumpkin Ale has a lingering bitter finish. It’s also made with three types of malt – standard, crystal rye and black malts.

On cask at Weterspoons Real Ale Festival 2013 Light fluffy fruit beer. Not as potent as I expected but easy to drink. The lack of a real flavour let it down

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.

Towey1989 (1504) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2015
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.

Was impressed by its silkiness in the mouth, rich brown colour, persistent off-white foamy head, nicely balanced gentle bitterness and some sweetness.

Cask. Nut brown ale with a thick light tan head. Nose is root vegetable and a touch malt. Taste is... well pumpkin. There’s a spicy bite in the finish. Paprika. Fun, seasonal ale.

wheresthepath (2025) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2013
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.
