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.

Flaska hos kompis. Mörkt rubinröd vätska. Dofter av pumpa, absolut. Maltig sötma som hålls tillbaka av en skön beska.

wihlan (403) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 5, 2014
Flaska från systembolaget - Aromen är något kemikalisk. Mörk till färgen och beiget skum. Beskan tar överhanden och man kan inte känna pumpan. Känns som beskan kommer från malten(?).

Tap (Kupfle & Kapsle, Warsaw)
Sweet spicy aroma. Taste likewise. Not getting pumpkin. Lovely rich sticky roast. Burnt, even. Interesting, certainly, and probably the best brew I’ve had which has had pumpkin in it, which I normally hate.

Nice creamy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet, grass, caramel malts, sap, sugar, spices, pumpkin, toffee, chocolate. Taste is slightly harsh grassy, caramel malts, grass, spices, sap, harsh hops, pumpkin. Medium bitterness, slightly harsh mouthfeel. Fair enough, the first batch a few years ago was a little better than this one.
