Best by 02/17. Pours pretty golden amber, clear, orange tinged white head. Aroma is lots of cinnamon, pumpkin spice, nutmeg. Very nicely pumpkin spiced. More than I expected. Flavor is sort of generic ale, cinnamon undertones, nutmeg, earthy, some pumpkin, but I’d call it mostly cinnamon and nutmeg. Kinda bitter finish for a pumpkin beer. Fine. It’s a pumpkin-spiced beer. Not particularly roasty or malty. Not too sweet. Not the best pumpkin beer I’ve ever had but I would drink it again. GregNC (118) - - DEC 17, 2016
Bottled (33 cl). Color : hazy dark orange ale with very thin white head. Nose : lightly cinnamon, toffee, cola. Aromas : honey, roasted malts. Medium body, low carbonation. Leighton (21255) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2016
Bottle shared in London - many thanks to Fergus. Pours clear copper-gold with a creamy, white head. Pleasant cinnamon in the nose, dried pumpkin, a little leafy hop, toasted bread. Light sweet flavour with nips of gingerbread, crackers, a little orange peel. Light bodied with average carbonation. Decent balance in the finish, with more autumnal spices, more dry pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg, ginger. Enjoyable pumpkin beer. mR_fr0g (12110) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2016

Bottle thanks to Fergy at level 42. It pours clear orange - amber with a medium beige head. The aroma is sweet, sickly, spicy, nutmeg, cinnamon, pumpkin and icing sugar. The taste is dry, sticky, sweet, earthy, autumnal spice, leaves, chewy, some alcohol and root veg with a drying finish. Medium body and average carabontion. Earthy, chewy and spice. Not great.

Off white beige head soon left a skim on a dark amber, lightly effervescent body.
Sweet malty aroma.
Thin, minimal carbonation.
Very sweet & sickly flavours of malt, dark sugar, dark fruit but I’m not picking up any pumpkin. Tastes like sweet stewed tea. Towey1989 (2826) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2016
Bottle from The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) Pours a clear amber colour with a foamy white head.
Aroma of pumpkin, sweet potato, some baked beans and slight cinnamon. Taste of toasted malts, grain, some pumpkin, slight sweet potato, a hint of nutmeg and subtle cinnamon. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A sweetish, slightly metallic, vegetal finish. Not really a pumpkin ale, quite artificial and vegetal. Disappointed with this. dwyerpg (6187) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 14, 2016
This tastes like the prototypical pumpkin ale. Amber ale feel with pumpkin flavor added. Not for me. jjsint (3101) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2016
Bottle from the Architect, Cambridge. Weirdly bright orange, very clear. Almost no head and little visible carbonation. Light aroma of roast sweet potato and candy sugar. Very tasty: sweet with just a hint of cinnamon backing it up. Perfectly carbonated with a hint of bitterness in the aftertaste. I really like this; reminds me of home. comperchris (142) - - NOV 6, 2016
A beautiful looking beer, dark amber with a lingering white head.
Aroma isn’t very strong, taste is bitter, pumpkin is understated. Ok but not the best not example.
