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.

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.

espenra (860) - 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.

Kaatuu lasiin rubiininpunaisena ja kirkkaana, vaahto on todella iso ja kestävä jättäen vahvaa pitsiä. Hajussa on vahvaa mausteisuutta ja puumaisuutta, joita tukee hedelmäisyys. Jonkinlaista pistävyyttä on jostain syystä joukossa. Maku on yhtä lailla pistävä (kurpitsaako?). Siitä löytyy (joulu)mausteisuutta, marjaisuutta ja leipäistä hiivaisuutta. Hyvin suoraviivainen maku. Suutuntuma on melko kuiva, kitkerähkö, pistävä ja hieman ohut. Suoraviivainen, simppeli ja hieman pistävän makuinen olut, joka on toisaalta monipuolinen, toisaalta melko tylsä.

tasted like a pumpkin pie, Nice pumpkin and spice notable only the over all flavor just fell a little short for me.

Alexus (240) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 11, 2012
Tap @ Cardinal. Pours a really nice pale-tan head which leaves beautiful lacing as the beer "disappears". The color is clear deep amber. Aromas of toffee and caramel from the malts, maybe some spices if you put your mind into it. Complex taste that I can’t describe, but it’s not what I expected from a pumpkin ale. But it’s really good and balanced. Too bad it’s so limited as it’s a really good ale from Nøgne Ø.

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(?).
