COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gresskarøl er en plage å brygge. Mesken blir som en tykk grøt som det tar en evighet å sile av. I denne ølen brukte vi tørkede biter av gresskar. Avsilingen tok 7 timer. Men litt gøy var det likevel!

Pumpkin Ale is a nightmare to brew. The mash becomes impermiable and it takes forever to collect the wort from it. In this beer we used dried pumpkin. The runoff took 7 hours. We still enjoyed it though.

Rake. Keg. Clear deep amber beer with a small pale cream coloured head. Palate is crisp but has some viscousity. Smooth creamy malt. Light ripe orange and very surpressed pumpkin fruit. Equally light cinnamon. Finishes smooth with a fine minerally carbonated nip. Mellow bitter linger. Interesting pumpkin beer - not shouty.

UPDATED: NOV 16, 2013 21.09.2013. On tap at Haugesund ølfestival. Amber colour with white head. Aroma is really hoppy with dry bitterness. But there is also some sweetness at the end. Very good beer with good body and lots of flavours. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Alexus (240) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 11, 2012
Tap @ Cardinal. Pours a really nice pale-tan head which leaves beautiful lacing as the beer "disappears". The color is clear deep amber. Aromas of toffee and caramel from the malts, maybe some spices if you put your mind into it. Complex taste that I can’t describe, but it’s not what I expected from a pumpkin ale. But it’s really good and balanced. Too bad it’s so limited as it’s a really good ale from Nøgne Ø.
