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.

Sample at a Systembolaget tasting. Sweet and spicy smell. Similar taste, fairly sweet and spicy. If you have ever had a pumpkin beer before you know what I mean with the spicy aroma.

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.
