I can’t remember where I heard about this brewery, but the first beer from that I saw in real life was at a deli in St Pancras and that’s where this is from. Maybe it was Kings Cross. I don’t know. It was London, it was a long time ago.
Look: Clear amber with a haze. Head is off white with good lacing
Aroma: Loads of treacle, sugar and booze. The pumpkin spice is as heavy as you’d expect. It smells somehow creamy.
Taste: Rather boozy, but very nice though, not quite as thick as the US pumpkin ales I’ve tried, but fulfilling all my expectations of a cinnamon and nutmeg heavy beer. Good spicing.
Mouthfeel: As described above, a little light bodied, but the carbonation was nice and lively.
Overall: Very pleasant pumpkin ale, I’d love to try it again next year. Lets hope a few more UK brewers take up the US staple of the Autumnal pumpkin beer, or I’ll have to brew one myself./5
