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.

On tap @ Patricks. Hazy, dark orange body with a nice beige head. Quite mild aroma, had to use some time to identify the nuances. I found malt, caramel, spices and some kind of fruit that might has been the pumpkin, but I’m not to familiar with pumpkin aroma/flavor. Flavor is super refreshing fruity, soft caramel, spicy, sweet malt and just a hint of fruit/berry acidity. Fine, well balanced body, balanced in flavor and actually quite complex and very quaffable at the same time. Compared with a few other pumpkin ales I have sampled I like the idea of enhance the fruity flavor from the pumpkin instead of drowning everything behind a big amount of spices. Both fun and very nice.

On tap @ Patrick’s, Kristiansand, only moments before the keg was empty and a lot of people’s smiles faded... :-S Also, it’s my first pumpkin ale AND my first beer at Patrick’s. Weeee! :-D Pours a hazy dark bronze body with a small white head. Nose is caramel, pumpkin, hints of white pepper and wet leaves. Taste is strong peppery herbal notes balanced by deep malty caramel tones, burnt toast and hints of pumpkin hidden way in the back. Not much of it really, but this is still a good beer. Full body and a high carb level which serves well to provide a fresh mouthfeel in what is otherwise a rather sweet beer. A perfect autumn ale; solid stuff from NØ. Too bad the mash was "super stuck", otherwise more people would be enjoying this around the world...

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.

On tap at Cardinal. Hazy chestnut body with a fingerthick, cappuccino colored head leaving excellent lacing. Toffee, caramel and butterscotch on the nose. Inviting. Sweet caramel, alcoholic, bitter, acidic. Well balanced. Full body, smooth. Abrupt finish with bitter tones lingering and a dry tongue. Good stuff.

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
