2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Mild tasting, ruby in colour, foamy white head, bready malts, pleasant mouth feel, medium body and low hop presence. Overall nothing too special - I probably wouldn’t have known that it was a pumking beer if it didn’t say it on the label.

Bottle at home. Pours a deep amber with a small white head. Aroma is toffee, bread, slight citrus. Taste is malty, bready, very slight toffee, bit of a weird tang I can’t quite put my finger on. Not my cup of tea.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle at home in Blaendulais as ’Wychwood Pumpking’, 3.8%, BB Sep 2016. Aroma is buttermints, toffee, touch soapy with some stewed orange. Mostly sweet and toffee-ish. Body is medium, rounded but foamy, soft carbonation. Taste is sweet malts, sugar syrups, boiled sweets, metallic finish, touch of spice. Very sweet and simple. Slow drinking for the ABV because of the sweetness. It’s not great by any means, but it’s also not as bad as I was expecting. An OK Halloween beer.

3.8% from Trinkgut in Wuppertal. Smooth spicy beginning. Malty dry body, full and round with nice fruity spices in the background. Not real pumpkin tasteable, but fruity-sweetish in the background, nice spices and an earthy herbal bitterness in the end. Nice stuff!

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
500ml bottle from Morrisons (£1):
A pretty disappointing beer despite the beer starting okay with a nice enough looking body & an okay smell; it was still better than the bottle of Forest Fruits from the brewery I tried some time back but only just. It seemed weak & uninteresting with too much bitterness; the only plus was that it was on special & I didn’t pay full price.
