Pretty Things Beer and Ale Project and Cambridge Brewing Co. – Next of Kin (2014)

AlexAA: The color of cherry cola, but an arresting aroma of smoky chocolate and hearty brown sugar. 8/10

AlexTM: Throwing me for a complete loop, what starts in a web of molasses and anise thins out quickly into bright melon sweetness from the Jarrahdale pumpkins. 8/10

AlexP: This attic family pumpkin tastes almost identical to a honeydew melon, which I consider the packing peanut of the fruit salad world. In the pumpkin beer world, however, it offers a FRESH take on how to use this gourd. 6P

AlexO: The melon-y pumpkin burst after a dense sipper onset is like that burst of energy after a comfy night in – just enough of a spark to go meet up for that nightcap. 88/100

NicAA: Ruby red with a bright, thin but clingy head. Aroma of licorice, brown sugar, chocolate. 8/10

NicTM: Lighter than I imagined from the aroma, chocolate covered licorice, candi sugars and lots of melon from the Jarrahdale pumpkin. 8/10

NicP: Not your average pumpkin, the Jarrahdale is more like a cucumber crossed with a honeydew. Sweet, light, refreshing. 4p

NicO: I worried about so many unique and seemingly contradicting flavors here but it works. “Will y’have a pumpkin aaale love? Goo on, yer nanna’s havin’ one!” 88/100
