Kauge (2381) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 21, 2018
Bottle as a gift from Helsinki; had it already a while ago. BB 16.10.2018. Fairly pleasant pumpkin aroma with all the spices coming along nicely, tastes mildly sweet of the pumpkin, plus a mild spiciness. The finish however turns kinda murky-dirty - I did manage to pour a bit of the sediments in, I admit. Nice and light, crisp, the booze is rather well integrated. Would go great with some pumpkin-infused dessert. I'm quite enjoying this, must be among the nicer pumpkin ales I've had. (I'm not a big fan of the style.)

ä, Tampere, Finland. Bold nuances of pumpkin, cinnamon and bit bitter malts. Averagely balanced. Medium taste spectrum and short aftertaste with slightly bitter malts and slight fruits. Medium/light body with medium/light carbonation. Overall, organic and bit messy still great quality. 8 4 8 4 18

Deep amber-copper colour, small white head and lace. Clove spicey aroma, some sweetness, when warms up, yeastyness. Medium-bodied. Flavor is malty and sweetish with some alcohol kick and spices (pepper, clove). Spicey aftertaste. Not too bad, better than expected. Brewing this to high as 8% makes these pumpkin beers more interesting.
Sample @Olutexpo 2016.
Deep golden color with a thin white head.
Pumpkin really shows here.
Pumpkin, spices, malt, hops. One of the better pumpkin ales I’ve has. mjs (8330) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 28, 2016
(Keg at OlutExpo 2016) The beer poured deep amber and hazy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had spices, especially clove and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, spices, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet, spicy and bitter. A typical pumpkin ale ie spicy mess. VastActiv (9310) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 28, 2016
