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.

On tap at Patricks. A murky, brown beer with a finger thick creamy beige head. Nice lacings. Spiced, lightly herbal aroma with chocolate notes, roasted malts, a nice hoppyness and somthing lightly sourish. Piney notes. Rather sweet on the palate, but not sticky, full bodied and smooth. Some spiced notes, roasted and nicely bitter. Bitter finish with roasted malts and some chocolate. A nice one indeed, but it would be even more nice with a tad more spicyness. 111028
