Hazy deep amber beer, thin cream coloured head. Cloves on the snout. Palate is crispy and fairly dry. Sharp minerals. Very sweet pumpkin and sweet cloves. Touch of lactose. Dry crisp finish. A pretty sweet pumpkin beer!

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at Churchkey. Clear brown, no head, no lacing. Aroma is subtle spice. Taste is chewy, warm pumpkin pie with a dollop of cream on top. Not usually my thing, but this is one of the best tasting pumpkin beers I have ever had.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The pour is your rather average amber color with a finger’s worth of off-white head.
S: Lots of pie spice notes fill the nose. I get plenty of cinnamon, nutmeg, and all spice. There’s a mild graham cracker malt note and rather than pumpkin, I get apples...
T: The apples are present on the flavor as well, but still not really any pumpkin qualities. The spices are the bulk of the flavors in this beer, and fit the same description as those mentioned in the aroma.
M: The body is medium with a fairly lively carbonation.
D: This didn’t necessarily say "pumpkin beer" to me. It was much more of an apple pie beer, and a good one at that.
