Enjoyed at the BDT brewpub. Orange colour with some lace. Thinnish for a pumpkin, good drinkability, like a soft drink. Some spice, pumpkin in the aroma. Its in the style though not the best representative of it.

Cask Days 2013. Deep amber pour with a thin white head. The nose is spicy and earthy. Nicely pumpkiny with some nice spiciness and a bit of light fruit. A touch of astringency with some fairly sweet spiciness. Okay.

2009-11-17. Dark amber body with a modest beige head. 3+ Aroma is mild, light vanilla? Spice? Touch of fruit character. 6+ Flavour is similar, light fruit and spice, mild supportive malt base. Alcohol is not noticable at first but comes out a bit as it warms. Average palate is smooth. On tap at the brewpub

Draught at the brewpub. Pours a clear deep amber with a small creamy off-white head. Nice aroma has just the right amount of pumpkin and spices, backed by sweet malt. Flavour of pumpkin and spices, slightly mild, along with sweet malt. Average bodied. Pretty good.

Draught. At the brewpub. Clear bright copper with a decent lasting off-white head. Aroma of sweet caramel and pumpkin spice, not at all vegetal. Also tastes of quite sweet roast caramel and pumpkin pie spices, with wheat, banana and some dry floral bitterness. Soft mouthfeel, astringency from the pungent spicing, mild carbonation, and a dry spicy linger - I quite liked the aroma, a pleasant pumpkin beer.

In short: A sweet and typical uber-spicy pumpkin beer
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Cloudy amber body topped by a very small beige head
In long: Nose has the typical spiciness that we find in so-called pumpkin ales (most don’t even have any pumkins). Cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, etc. Taste is really like a pumpkin pie. The sweet malts have a pie crust type of character and the spices remind us of pumpkin desserts. A bit too sweet for my liking. Mouthfeel was kind of dull, making me wonder if my pint was from the autumn batch (I was about 6 months after Halloween). I am really not found of pumpkin beers to start with and this one was just an average example of the genre. I don’t care for pumpkins, but halloween just wouldn’t be the same if we carved scary faces on chickpeas
