Clear light to medium orange color with a average, frothy, good lacing, fully lasting, off-white head. Aroma is spicy - clove, cinnamon like Danish Glögg or blood sausage. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet with a average to long duration. Body is medium, texture is watery to oily, carbonation is soft. [260908]

UPDATED: OCT 8, 2006 [At Stockholm Beer Festival 2005] A hazy orange beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of cinnamon and pumpkin - both very powerful notes. The flavor is sweet and again with powerful notes of cinnamon and pumpkin, but the body is thin. To me this is a Christmas beer - drink it with spiced Christmas cookies.

Bottled. Clear golden. Aroma of pumpkin, cinnamon and gingersnaps. Sweet with fizzy, rounded mouthfeel, low bitterness. The spices makes in interesting, but the mouthfeel is not very attractive.

Bright clear gold beer. No real head. Light crispy palate. Sweet pumpkin, a little tangy. Trace of orange. Prefectly spiced (ie not too much). Finishes semi dry. To date the best pumpkin beer I’ve had.
