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.

Foffern (1605) - Bodø, NORWAY - MAR 28, 2016
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy reddish brown colour with a small beige head. Aroma of dried fruit, coffee, oak, nuts, pine and grassy hops. The flavour is similar with oak, nuts, cocoa and pine. Has a slick mouth feel, medium body and balanced bitterness. I don’t find the pumpkin in this beer, but is anyhow filled with hops and malt. Well-balanced.

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.
