Disappointed. Green, acidic and damned well disappointed. Some interesting flavours coming through but what a rough delivery!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Super rich, fairly complex, thick and chewy pumpkin brew. Blood orange pour with an eggshell head. Guard meat, nutmeg, cinnamon, caramel, vanilla, and honey. A pretty damn good representation of the style.

500mL, no date from Olive Tree Market in OB, $11.49 back in fall of 2013. Speed rate. Hazy medium brown body with a ¼" beige head, low retention. Overall it’s like a spiced Scotch ale. Chewy toffee and nutmeg dominate. Scant earthy bitterness in the finish. A little bit oxidized and a scant tang also present, showing its over a year old. A little lower on the carbonation than I’d like, making the ample body seem even fuller. OK. Not $12 ok, though.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Both light and sweet in approach with mineral and caramel and some vanilla setting off the allspice & clovey hints. Dark and clear with an off white head. Moderate bitterness works well. Unusually nice top notes. Likely one of the better ones from this Kiwi brewer.
