On tap .. one of the better pumpkin options though i found it to be very heavy on the spice versus the pumpkin. Quite easy drinking; strong almost cloves notes .. overall, not bad

330ml bottle (2013 batch) into a tumbler. Pours clear golden colour with a light, quickly dissipating head. Spicy nose, with a more subdued flavour of spice (mainly cinnamon and nutmeg). Previous years have either been far too spicy, or far too bland. 2013 is well-balanced.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear blonde pour with small white head dissipating rapidly with no lacing. Aroma of spice and wheat malt. Initial bitterness followed by a bit of cinnamon and too much cloves. Canít detect the pumpkin on the palate but a little comes though I the aftertaste.
The cloves really turn me off of an otherwise decent brew.

Clear brew having a yellow amber colour and shows little lace and slight carbonation. Aromas of spices, cinnamon, pumpkin and other harvest spices and has a slightly soapy aroma. very pumpkin and cinnamon/nutmeg character. hate this style of beer but it is some of the better locally produced pumpkin beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle. 2010 vintage. Pours crystal clear yellow with the slightest hint of gold with a big bubbled head that leaves a little lace. Smells like a pumpkin pie, but much lower on the spice notes than previous efforts. Thereís a wheat note underneath that throws the whole thing off a little. In the mouth itís got a very watered down pumpkin feel with some underlying spice, but not enough, nowhere near enough. Finishes with a slight bitterness and an off note I canít put a finger on.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: Hazy gold with low head. Well carbonated.
Aroma: Cloves, Cinnamon, allspice, ginger, brandy, Banana bread, biscuity.
Flavour: Spicy first with a light malt background. Sweet but finishes with a light sour character (spices?) tastes more of pumpkin pie spices than it does of beer. Spice first then malt and no hop flavour or bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied and fizzy.
Overall: Well, itís a pumpkin beer what should i have expected. Spice dominates beer character. Finishes sweet and spicy with lingering spice and a light sour character.
