COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A dark golden ale with a big, hoppy aroma and flavour over a fine malty base - well-balanced, with a hint of spiciness from the hops. A strange brew indeed and fitting for Halloween, as this beer only came into being because of a mistake by our maltsters that led us to blend two beers together. Now a separate brew with five hops and four different hop additions to the brew kettle. Despite the image on the pump clip, no pumpkin is used in the recipe.

Leighton (10861) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2013
Gravity cask at the Wandsworth Common Halloween Beer Festival - Le Gothique, London. Pours mostly clear gold with a fine, filmy white head. The nose has moderate citrus, basic pale bread. Light to medium sweet flavor with bitter grain husks, orange, dry bread, a bit of citrus rind. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Mellow rindy bitterness in the finish with dry bread sweetness. Basic but fine.

Cask at the Charles Dickens in Southwark. Quite citrusey to the point of being slightly tart but other than that a decent session beer.

berkshirejohn (4503) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2010
Cask at the RealAle.com shop in Richmond Pleasing golden amber with an attractive hoppy aroma, and even better hoppiness to the taste. An extremely well-constructed bitter.

(Cask at The Harp, London) Now this was a pleasant hoppy bitter. The bitter characteristics were there but on the top of them I could find scent and flavour of pine and clear bitterness. Hoppiness was also nicely balanced.
