Nice amber color. Great fall pumpkin smell. Fresh taste and nice pumpkin finish that makes for great drinking by a fire in the fall.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A nice heavier pumpkin ale. Smells of Apple cinnamon, pumpkin and a hint of vanilla. Taste has a very scotch ale backing, is very cinnamon that lasts and overpowers a bit. Had in the bottle.

Smooth but not the fullest flavor u expect from a pumpkin ale also lacking in aroma for a holiday brew.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Naama’s place. Thanks zvikar. Clear orange. Aroma of lots of pumpkin, honey, cinnamon and nutmeg. Sweet flavor with pumpkin, caramel, honey, lots of spices, alcohol and a drier, spicy-bitterish finish. Medium-bodied, a bit sticky.
