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.

TheCametron (2369) - CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 29, 2011
Cask at Doctors. A fine seasonal ale. majority malt flavour but with a sweet additive that can only be described as pumpkinny.

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.

Palate - Medium body, smooth, fairly sweet malts, good texture. Finish - fairly bitter, spicy, soft bitter caramel linger
Overall - Nice malts in here, not sure where the pumpkin is though -wasn’t that keen at first then got to like it

Stuu666 (10880) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 5, 2014
Cask at Holyrood 9a. Pours reddish orange, nose is light pumpkin and sweet toffee, taste is similar. A bit unfair to this as I had after the excellent Elixir pumpkin beer.
