Quite spritzy, lots of gingerbread type vibes, not masses of pumpkin, some general sweet vegetable notes, plenty of cinnamon and cloves - bit like chai. Overall a good version of this type of beer, just not a style I favour.

Backlog rating. Tap at the brewery tap room, London. It pours a clean amber body with a medium tan head. Aroma is spicy with clove and cinnamon. Some pumpkin sweetness. Aroma is quite sweet with pumpkin, Christmas spices, vanilla and burnt sugar. Nice pumpkin ale

Keg at the brewery tap. Glowing brass. Elegant use of spices, but this is not my favourite style. Nutmeg, allspice, fruit, sourness.

Leighton (18720) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2013
Draft at the brewery taproom. Pours mostly clear, amber-gold with a big, off-white foam head. The nose is all autumnal spices and pumpkin bread. Medium sweet is the flavor with strong spicing, dry nutmeg, cinnamon and toasted bread. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly drying to finish with further cinnamon, pumpkin bread, mild leafy bitterness, faint wood. Good balance. Nice. I like a nice, festively-spiced pumpkin beer and this one delivers.

Keg at the Warburton Street taproom, 19/11/13. Hazed golden amber with a moderate off white covering. Nose is spiced fruits, pumpkin aroma, light ginger, bitter orange, toffee apple, cardoman seed, cinammon. Taste comprises pumpkin pie, spice, toffee, dark fruit tang. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry lightly spiced finish. Decent pumpkin affair.

On tap @The Union Tavern, Westbourne Park, London. Caramel, spicy, some cooked vegetable aromas. Pours copper with off-white head, some lacing. Medium body, soft carbonation, oily texture. Taste is spicy, sweet, caramel, some dry and weird notes. Peculiar and enjoyable.
