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.

espenra (873) - 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.

olsvammel (3066) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 9, 2013
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.

Bottle at Yespr - Thanks. Clear brown - offwhite head. Tea, herbal, roasted, high sweetness, bitter notes, high pumpkin, a bit boring.
