3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle.The pour was a cloudy dark amber with a small (less than 1 finger) creamy white head that dissipated rapidly and had fair lacing.
The aroma was of a light biscuit malt and a doughy yeast with notes of nutmeg, cinnamon, brown sugar, allspice and pumpkin.
The taste was sweet and mildly bitter with a hint of brown sugar and cinnamon in the beginning and then became quite bitter with a strong presence of allspice and a hint of pumpkin at the end. The flavor lasted only a short time after the swallow leaving a hint of bitter spice behind.
Mouthfeel was light in body and watery yet dry in texture with a forceful carbonation.
Overall a mild tasting Pumpkin Ale that had a spicy bitterness which laid on the taste buds for a little while.

Bottle. Dark golden, hazy, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sugary sweetish aroma, some caramel and vegetables (pumpkin?) with some spiciness (coriander). Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, caramel and some vegetable spiciness. Finish is average, malty and sweetish, light caramel, some notes of vegatalbles with some spiciness, light alcohol. Beer with pumpkins and spices = Why?

A very pleasant aroma of pumpkin to start with. A decent ale with just a hint of pumpkin but heavier on the spices.

Bottle at home. Looks nice with the crystal clear orangish color. Smells mostly of nutmeg.Pumpkin aroma but tiring in the end. The spice is overpowering the whole thing. But a nice bitter ending. Not my thing. Y

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle 355ml, a clear copper beer with low head. Nose is slightly hopy, aroma is very hopy at the beginning then nothing, as poor body with nothing else than medium bitterness and stringency and a kind of cooked vegetable, basic and boring.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355ml bottle. Nice deep amber color, thin white head. Aroma mostly of pumpkin, spices, not sure which, and wet wood. Flavor has pumpkin, nuts, sweetness and that wet wood again. More tart than sweet though. Not sure about the tart notes, but kinda goes well overall. High carbonation.

Pours cloudy orange. Earthy aromas followed by tastes of pumpkin spice, nutmeg, and hops. Sweet flavors end in a bitter aftertaste. An average beer, at best.

Bottle, in a dark pub, couldn’t judge appearance or head. Smells strongly of pumpkin and taste follows the smell. I’m getting spices and a little hops as well. But a little more bitter than I’d like for a fruit or spice beer.

On tap at Twisted Jimmy’s. Light pumpkin pie spice aroma, sweetish with no hops. Rich golden-orange amber clear with creamy off-white lacing head. Light body with medium carbonation. Starts with modest sweetness, light brown sugar and pumpkin pie spices. Clean finish with some nutty sweetness and no bitterness. Pretty complacent pumpkin beer; watery.
