3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours orange with an off-white head. Aroma of pumpkin pie and some cloves. Tastes almost like a normal amber ale, a hint of pumpkin and bitterness. Dry finish, average palate.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a very clear pale orange with a thin tan head. Smells strongly of pumpkin spice, clove and nutmeg mostly. Some sweet malty aromas as well.
Tastes lightly tart (surprisingly). Lots of pale malt breadiness then the spices and a nice clean finish. Crisp and dry and surprisingly full bodied. Decent drinker but nothing to write home about.

Decent pumpkin flavor, but a bit over spiced. Almost an assault of pumpkin on your tongue. I guess it could be a good thing if you like pumpkin, a lot! All and all, it was good, maybe much better if in season.

12 oz bottle. What the hell am I doing drinking a pumpkin ale in June? Sigh. Anyway... Golden orange pour with a decent white head. Spicy, spicy nose - lots of nutmeg. Good malty pumpkin flavors, plus more of the nutmeg and a cinnamon undertone. Finish is lively, leaves the tongue singing. I’d love this stuff in the season.

A decent, but not great pumpkin ale. This one poured a nice amber-orange color. The head was short lived and the lacing only minor. The aroma was spicey and caramel-like. The flavor was much of the same with pumpkins playing a minor role. The spicing was the strongest feature of this beer, kinda like the nutmeg took the place of a fairly strongly hoppped beer. Again, pretty good.

Bottle. White but almost non existing head. Clear amber body. Cinnamon nutmeg aroma and flavor. When tasted cold the spices are dominant, warmer the pumpkin taste will dominate.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Pours a beautiful, clear, dark amber with a small, off-white head. Spicy aroma. Rather light body with a vague, underlying caramelish sweetness. Dominated by some rather exotic flavour impressions, I reckon it’s the pumpkins - a vegetable I have absolutely no experience with. But also a rather refined spicing is prominent - it actually reminds me of Christmas: cardamom, cinnamon and ginger. Dry rather than hoppy finish. Unusual. 060306
