The beer looked orange in color like the flesh of a pumpkin, with a striking clarity. There wasn't much of a head, and the carbonation bubbles formed wispy streamers. The smell was quite a bit like pumpkin pie, with the vegetable smell mixing with cinnamon, and dough. The taste was much more intense than I was expecting, as there were flavors of pumpkin, cinnamon, vanilla, and nutmeg up front, followed by a surprising hop presence. The interplay between sweet, spicy, and bitter was very well done. The finish was dry, and showcased the spices. The body was a little thicker than medium, with a little sticky coating in the mouth. I usually don't go for pumpkin beers, but picked this up based on the recommendation of the store owner, and glad I did.

I like it better than most pumkin brews, a little bit pricey.

Served cool from 500ml bottle into straight pint glass.

L) Attractive copper colour, clear, 1cm dense off-white head that fades quickly to a thin film.

S) English hops and a bit of musty spice.

T) Tasty malt flavour, tangy English hops as expected. Pumpkin element is very mild and not much of a 'pumpkin spice' taste but it is there if you look for it. For the weak ABV it is actually quite tasty.

F) Easy drinking, quite fizzy, no aftertastes.

O) Decent little beer, but don't expect an American-type pumpkin ale.

Loved this beer. Perfect fall time taste. Hints of cinnamon and spice but not too much where it becomes overbearing. Tastes and smells exactly as the name suggests. There was just enough pumpkin flavor where it still felt like I was drinking beer and not pumpkin juice. Smooth finish with pleasant, somewhat spicy aftertaste.
