Split this 22 oz (Batch #1) bottle with my wife (who is a huge pumpkin beer fan). Pours a serious amber/orange. Very reminiscent of Autumn and pumpkins. The aroma is, surprisingly, mostly pumpkin with a hint of spice. I say "surprisingly” because so many of this genre now hit you over the head with the spices. It had about a half-inch white head in my glass (next to no head in my wife’s) with some nice lacing down the glass. A nice caramel malt base, which immediately moves into the distinct pumpkin flavor for which I was hoping. There are background notes of cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. Like a good pie, these are there simply to compliment the pumpkin, which is the star of this brew. Lovely, sweet finish. To recap, this is like a good pie: nice, pumpkin flavors accented by the right spices and some caramel. A very nice dessert beer, which is when I would drink it, rather than with a meal. Glad to have this in the pumpkin rotation.

Bottle at Yespr’s - thanks! It pours clear ruby-brown with a small beige head. The nose is squash/pumpkin, wood, light tang, varnish, orange peel, spice, earth toast and light smoke. The taste is wood, pumpkin, earth, toast, stewed orange, candy, raisin, sultana, light alcohol and spice. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Alright.

With everyone and their Mom’s doing a pumpkin ale around August, I figured I would have to get on the ball here. Aroma of pumpkin pie, nutmeg and ginger, some caramel malts. Taste is similar except there is a weird sweaty body odor in the finish that’s not appetizing. Won’t be coming back.

Flaske, 65 cl, hos Yespr. Mørk ravfarvet, klar, off white skum. Dufter sødligt, frugtet, maltet. Meget fyldig, med lidt ristede noter. Sødlig, krydret. Definitvt en del øl, men som sådan ganske god.
