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 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.

Vighals (2643) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - OCT 9, 2015
Mørk brun klar med høyt beige skum. Lukter brent karamell, kaffe og mørke frukter. Finner ikke gresskarlukten, men hvordan lukter gresskar da? Middels fylde. Noe salt smak. Kaffe og lett fruktighet. Saltbitter avsluttning.

yngwie (16227) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 28, 2011
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
