Nose
Perfumed and orchard-fruity, with lightly peaty, earthy notes and gentle cloves.
Palate
There's a lot going on but it seems just a bit too contrived, with herbal clove notes, sweet and earthy pumpkin spiciness, and even hints of ginger.
Finish
Increasingly bitter and dry, after the sweet palate, with spicy clove and peat.
Comment
There's a degree of artificiality about these Hall & Woodhouse ales, which are flavoured with natural essences, but they're pleasant enough and seem to hit the spot for lots of people.
