wimpyjoe (4371) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2014
Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Amber-gold with a small creamy head. There’s lot of different spices in this ale, none of which are overbearing although the ginger and coriander are noticeable. Has a relatively smooth drinking texture.

ladnewton (1466) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2014
Cask at Craft Beer Co, Covent Garden on 26th October 2014. Amber with thin off-white foam and lacing bands. Yeasty, spicy and moderately citric aromas. Mellow fruitiness and sweet veg notes in-mouth with citrus background. An apple touch. Tangy, then grassy finish as sweetness first to die away. Light to zingy mouthfeel and light body for strength. Rated as a novelty, I found this ale very enjoyable.

tania_nexust (223) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2014
Draught cask at craft Beer Co. Covent Garden. Really nice interpretation of a pumpkin ale - flavours are subtle & mellow, not over spiced, and you could sure enjoy this by the pint.

Leighton (11674) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2013
Cask at CBC Clerkenwell. Pours clear, bright gold with a fine, white foam head. Good beer, pleasant autumnal spice character, moderate bready sweetness. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Good condition. Some nutmeg to finish, further bready malts. Tasty and nicely balanced.

Craft Clerkenwell. Cask. Clear amber beer with a small pale cream coloured head. Smooth and semi dry palate with light fine carbonation. Light and semi sweet cinnamon. Mild fruity pumpkin with touch of orange. Light dry finish. Light and fruity with the spices kept in check.

jamesie1857 (1461) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2013
Cask at Coach and Horses, Dronfield - Deep orange body, lasting white lacing head. Spicy nose of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. A little sweet in the taste, very much a nice winter pumpkin pie flavour to it. Good mouth feel to this too, with a little bitter finish to bring it all together. Good.

Garrold (1637) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2013
Cask at Dada, Sheffield. (Badged up as Four Lions). Orange amber colour. Broken, white head. Aroma is a lightly spiced, sweet maltiness. Some nutmeg and a distinct pumpkin sweetness. Taste has a light sweetness initially, which turns into a spicy dryness. Nicely balanced. Liked it.
