Bottle thanks to Leighton. Clear amber colour thin beige head. Not overly spicy. Some ok malts. Fine. MalcolmTucker (924) - SCOTLAND - DEC 3, 2012
Bottle. Muted vegetal aroma that doesn’t inspire much confidence. Flavour is much better with a nice blend of sweet toffee, peppery hops with a considerable pumpkin presence. zimbo (959) - SCOTLAND - DEC 2, 2012
A colab from the two hottest breweries in Scotland today.
Nose is a bit vegetal but nice. Glowing white yellow full thick foams head. Nice critic nose too which is cutting. Smooth middle with activity on the left and right of it. Not much development at the end but still very satisfying beer.Quality. BenH (3439) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 2, 2012
Cask at bat. Dark amber with white head. Slightly stale aroma, like spilt beer trays dried up. Taste is better, caramel, toffee and spicy pumpkin. Pleasant mouthfeel but a little warm for me. Not bad. AshtonMcCobb (6498) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 19, 2012
On tap @ Blue Blazer. Pours amber with a nicely proportioned head. The nose is unusually earthy with vegetal notes too, perhaps some sweat as well. The taste is more of the vegetables, perhaps root vegetables other than pumpkin. The palate is medium bodied and textured with a clean finish. Overall, this is the first time I’ve really tasted pumpkin in a pumpkin beer as it is usually buried amongst biscuity malt and spices such as cinnamon. A valent effort but it doesn’t give me as much pleasure as the other Cromarty or Tempest beers.

From cask. Pours clear and golden orange with a smalloffwhite head. Aroma is toasted malt, sweet and caramelosh. Bitter, herbal and dry into a bitter and dry finish. cgarvieuk (24166) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 7, 2012
