Bottle by Cuso. The aroma is intensely spicy and while the spices are individually pumpkiny, it somehow adds up to soy sauce and curee to me. Clear amber colour. Taste is ginger, spicy, more in line with tradition. Overall nicely drinkable, enjoyable pumpkin.

Pours a filtered polished copper with a thin slightly off-white head.
Aromas of pumpkin spices, nutmeg, all with a slight chemical tinge to it.
Light bodied mouthfeel with tastes of light pumpkin, light maltiness, with a light vanilla finish. Feels a bit manufactured and lacking a naturalness. Wouldn’t buy this one again.

Not very pumpkin flavor and with some coffee flavors. Smells more pumpkin than taste. Not the most flavorable but I like it.

I personally enjoy a pumpkin ale...this beer had the pumpkin flavor with herbs and spices with a clean aftertaste. Nice

2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Nose is malt, biscuit, spice a strange dry spiciness which I guess is the pumpkin. Taste is sweet, cola, leading to biscuit, pumpkin, fennel, slight licorice, and spine in the finish. Mouthfeel is light.
This is my first pumpkin ale having always turned my nose up. It’s a style I will avoid, this is pretty unpleasant and disjointed, it’s too sweet in the lead and then the pumpkin bit is nasty, then the heavy spice doesn’t fit.

Malzig-würzig, frischer Antrunk. Malzig-frischer Kürbis, Gewürztöne, mild-weich. Frisch und malziger Hauptteil, kaum herb, dafür leicht nussig-süßliche Kürbistöne. Der Nachgeschmack hat tolle Gewürztöne mit nussig-süßlichem Kürbis und einem toll mild-weichem Malzkörper. Lecker!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Absolutely gorgeous deep ambery copper colour, completely translucent and almost glowing. Aroma is packed with cinnamon and nutmeg as promised, as well as a fudgy vanilla. Taste is not as sweet as could be feared, but is instead nicely balanced between a rich nutty malt base and a dry spice finish. Interesting and quite enjoyable.

Bottle. Pours a beatefull crystal clear copper with sweet small white head. Aroma is sweet spices. Cinnamon and some malt. Taste is cinnamon, clove and medium sweet. Finish is kind of dry from the spices. Subtle sweet pumpkin nuttiness. Light body, but nice carbonation. Quite christmasy.
