1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours slightly cloudy orange with barely any head. Aroma is pumpkin, spices, vegetables. Flavor is sour and a bit stale with pumpkin, malt, vegetables, slightly metallic. Original, but not very enjoyable for me.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pale body with creamy head. Aroma is sweet with cinnamon up front, mostly spicy with low noble hop profile. Taste is sweet, also spicy with a lot of Christmas spiciness in the overall after taste. Bitterness little bit out of balance. Body is medium and dry.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap. Pivni Rozmanitost.
Aroma - interesting, a bit spicy and some pumpkin, of course, but not so much as I’d expected.
Appearance - amber, yellow head, a bit of foam, exactly how that kind of beer should like like I believe.
Taste - lightly bitter, very good aromatic hops and molts, tastes like a really holiday beer.
Palate - full body, I even didn’t expect so much malts in the beginning, but the finish is absolutelly different - dry and light.
Probably, the best Halloween beer of this year.

(tap 0,5l @ OP (Brno))
Spicy, clove aroma. Light hazy amber color. Off-white head. Light sweet, strong spicy, clove taste. Medium body. Very dry finish. Fulfills the assumptions of pumpkin beer. Strong aroma and flavor.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber color with no head. Aroma is spices right away, coriander seeds, something sour like vinegar, may be a bit rosemary. Taste is nicely balanced sweet and bitter, some spices as well. My first pumpkin ale and I liked it, but not my favorite style.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
PETka from Farmarksy Obchod Praha. Cloudy golden-brownish colour, mid-sized white head. Christmasy aroma. Full-bodied with good, biscuity malt favours, plus lots of spices such as clove, cardamom and other christmasy spices, some aromatic hops as well, and of course pumpkin in the background. A very nice beer for dark october nights.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2013 Bottle, model 2013. Pours clear amber liquid with foamy head. Aroma is just full of pumpkin and spices. Taste is mostly bitter with tart sweetness in it. Medium body with creamy texture and lively carbonation. Finish is long and dry, but full of spiced pumpkin. Last year it was little bit spicy but nothing else. This year they brewed something completely different and for me much better.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Small yellowish head over fully hazy, well-carbonated foxy-orange beer. Spiced nose, like lavender, and speculoosherbs (coriander, cinnamon, clove, ginger, cardemom, white pepper). Dry, spiced & vegetable flavour; fried and stewed vegetables - no doubt pumpkin - and some choice herbs. Precious little sweetness. Very light MF, bit grist (or vegetable) slickness. Aftertaste has some sharpish vegetable bitterness in store on the tonguesides. OK, nothing out of balance. Thanks for this rare one, Honza!
