3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger (only 1 keg available there, I’m afraid). Cloudy orange-brown colour, large and creamy beige head. Sweetish fruity and vegetal aroma (the pumpkins, I assume), also notes of piney American hops. Effervescent mouthfeel. The flavour is fruity with notes of pumpkins, but is not too sweet. Spicy notes too, decent American hops throughout. Very drinkable.

Dark amber with a small head.
Slightly perfume-ish aroma with pumpkin. Rather sweet with grassy hoppiness in the background.
Soapy flavour. Rather sweet. Not too much of the pumpkin coming through. Piney hoppiness.

Sample at a Systembolaget tasting. Sweet and spicy smell. Similar taste, fairly sweet and spicy. If you have ever had a pumpkin beer before you know what I mean with the spicy aroma.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Patricks. Hazy, dark orange body with a nice beige head. Quite mild aroma, had to use some time to identify the nuances. I found malt, caramel, spices and some kind of fruit that might has been the pumpkin, but I’m not to familiar with pumpkin aroma/flavor. Flavor is super refreshing fruity, soft caramel, spicy, sweet malt and just a hint of fruit/berry acidity. Fine, well balanced body, balanced in flavor and actually quite complex and very quaffable at the same time. Compared with a few other pumpkin ales I have sampled I like the idea of enhance the fruity flavor from the pumpkin instead of drowning everything behind a big amount of spices. Both fun and very nice.
