4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted on 2/1/14 from a capped 750mL bottle purchased quite some time ago, this one has been in the cellar for quite a while. Pours clear burnt orange with a thick white head that very slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is really ripe with that great, signature JP funk, with a bit of richness and a touch of dusty chocolate (coming through more as the beer warms) and baking spices. The flavor is much more sour with the cocoa on the back of the palate. This beer is a bit richer than some JP that I’ve had, I am guessing that can be attributed to the pumpkin. The body is light with nearly sparkling carbonation and a long sour, funky, and touch of rich cocoa finish.

Keg at Craft Beer Co, Clapham. Murky orange shade with a ring of head. Has a fruity and sour opening before the pumpkin spices come to the fore. Quite a minerally and drying taste. Interesting effort but I prefer your standard malty pumpkin beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2016/03/25 - Pours a dirty copper-caramel colour with a thick, foamy, off white head that slowly reduces to a lingering film and leaves medium lacing. Aroma is pumpkin, spices, light oaky-vanilla and tart notes. Taste is lots of tart notes, barnyard-earthy funk, salt, pumpkin, spices, wood, and light vanilla. Mouthfeel is medium, with lightly biting carbonation and a long, dry, refreshing finish. Interesting pumpkin ale with just the right amount of pumpkin. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
