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.

Peter_L (888) - SWEDEN - JUL 24, 2014
Flaska hos kompis. Mörkt rubinröd vätska. Dofter av pumpa, absolut. Maltig sötma som hålls tillbaka av en skön beska.

espenra (884) - Kurland, NORWAY - NOV 24, 2011
On tap at Håndverkerstuene. Hazy dark orange colour. Small to no head. Aroma is reminiscent of a porter. Mostly caramel, but some coffee is also present. Flavour is suprisingly bitter. Caramel, coffee, liqorice and pumpkin. My first pumpkin-ale so I’m not quite sure what to expect really. A decent beer overall, but probably not the best pumpkin ale out there.
