3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Rusted orange and amber colored in appearance with beige foam. Aroma is a blend of pumpkin puree, nutmeg and allspice with a fair amount of caramel malt around the edges. The taste is roasted pumpkin, caramel and toasted malts upfront followed by notes of cinnamon, ginger, brown sugar and hops bitterness. The body is moderately creamy with medium carbonation and a spiced, malty finish. Overall, the malt and hops are a little more prominent than usual for the style but it’s still a respectable pumpkin brew.

"A nice, fairly rich and malty amber base. Aroma is pleasant of light spices and sweet smelling vegetable/pumpkin. Smooth body and flavor. Pie like in a good way with some depth. Well done."

Bottle. Colour...orange-amber with a thick white head. Nose...cinnamon predominates and there’s hints of allspice and nutmeg. Palate...rather thin on the mouth with light CO2.There’s mostly pie spice here but it doesn’t overwhelm. There’s a generalised squash flavour but nothing discernible as pumpkin.

Draught at Cask & Co Clerkenwell - solid spicy aroma with plenty of cloves, nutmeg, sone fruit, nothing too overpowering. Taste is surprisingly balanced, some light hoppiness joining the typical spice flavours. Very drinkable for a rather unusual style

Deep dark copper coloured body with a nice amber glow and a rich, one centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of squash, pumpkin, allspice, cloves, canella and a lot of malty earthiness, with some light caramel sweetness. Medium to Full-bodied; Very rich squash and pumpkin flavours of malt noticeable with a big earthiness, some mild caramel and subdued sweetness and a touch of spices on the end with nutmeg and allspice the strongest. Overall, a nice and well flavoured pumpkin beer with the right amount of spices, a ton of malt, a good level of sweetness and of all things, a very nice rich body - made for a good sipping beverage.
