Leighton (22306) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2012
Bottle at Sander’s place in NYC. Pours slightly cloudy orange-amber with a fine white head. Some faint pumpkin and spice in the nose, with lightly toasted malts. Flavor is light to medium sweet, some light bread, mild spiciness, slight tang, light bitterness. Medium bodied with very lively. Alright balance in the finish, a bit of pumpkin character in the aftertaste, light leafy bitterness, light nutmeg, mildly sweet. I’d say this beer is a little bit past its prime, but the heart is still there. Even still, it’s just an OK beer.

chriso (21656) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2009
On tap at Kinsale Irish Pub, Boston MA, 2 October 2009. Amber colour. Fairly dry and firm. Biscuity malt in evidence. Some diacetyl on the nose. Subtle spice aroma but doesn’t carry through too intrusively on the palate. Result is a nicely balanced, drinkable pumpkin ale, rather than a spice bomb as is often the case. As I’m not a big fan of of those spice bombs this suited me fine. If you prefer a more spicy style you might find this too restrained.

Theydon_Bois (20621) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2014
Bottle, thanks to Riita (Aniela) split at Colin and the Vikings tasting, Nol, Goteborg, Sweden 22/03/14 - slow gusher alter. Lightly hazed golden with a well appointed off white covering that thins to a covering then stays for the show. Nose is bitter fruit, orange, spice, pumpkin, light plastic. Taste comprises spice, straw, lemon rind, apple skins, more saison like. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, crisp close. So so affair, pumpkin saison - weird !
