Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 23, 2011
On cask at Cloisters. Pours a red - orange colour with a fair yellowish beige head. Aroma of pumpkin, yeast, grassy hops, cinnamon and cloves. Big pumpkin flavour with yeast, barley and Weetabix notes. Nicely bitter with mild carbonation and a dry finish. Very nice!

allmyvinyl (2941) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 1, 2013
Cask at The Southern. Clear deep amber with a good white head. Spice aromas, but also toffee and caramel. Gentle sweetness to the taste, good toffee malt and clove. Well balanced, and one of the best pumpkin beers I’ve tried.

Cask by handpump at State Bar, Glasgow - clear golden amber, thin white head, malty and pumpkin aroma, moderate carbonation, fruity flavour with pumpkin which lasts to the aftertaste, easy to drink, well balanced

Blairgus (2567) - California, USA - MAR 12, 2011
Mini-cask auburn colour, very clear w/ no bubbles nose is cloves and pumpkin but not strong in either one med body and almost totally flat maybe faint clove flavour along w/ a pumpkin flavour a nice effort but i expected more. this is too much like a british ale and not enough like a pumpkin pie.

On tap @ the Southern Bar. This is the best Scottish effort at a pumpkin ale I’ve had to date. The base must be a Scotch Ale or an Amber. There’s a great malt backbone that is able to hold the intense spiciness (which as always is the foil for the pumpkin itself). Clove is the spice that comes through most on the finish.
