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. Stuu666 (14561) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 9, 2014

Cask by handpump at Bon Accord, Glasgow (31 Oct 12) - cloudy amber brown, good tan head, pine, fruity aroma, sweet fruity, grassy flavour, good body, plenty hop, moderate carbonation 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. Leighton (22027) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2012
Bottle shared at The Kernel, London - many thanks to BenH for sending this bottle South! Pours clearish, amber-gold with a tight, off-white cream head. Toasty malt nose, light earth, hints of fruits and autumnal vegetables. Medium sweet flavor with some darkened citrus, light pine, earth. Medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Toasty brown bread finish with mild piney hops, earth and hints of brown sugar. Not particularly pumpkiny, but a decent ale nonetheless. madmitch76 (25321) - , Essex, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2013

Tasting at ChrisOs. Hazy amber beer, little white head. Palate is light and a little dry. Sweetish malt. Generic fruits (not readily identifiable as pumpkin). A little piney hop in good balance. Finishes semi dry with a slightly earthy bitterness. Interesting.
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.
