COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
One sip will transport you straight back to Grandma’s kitchen.

Description
With warm and inviting aromas of cinnamon and nutmeg this pleasantly medium bodied ale will envelop your tastebuds with all the best flavours of fall.

Pumpkin Pie, a fan favorite since 2007, is returning this fall. Offered in a 650ml, this warm spiced ale has notes of cinnamon and ginger on a bed of delicious pumpkin. 13.5°

A good pumpkin beer if you’re not real big on pumpkin beers. The pumpkin and spices are there but fairly subdued. I’d prefer it be amped up more.

650ml bottle bought at the brewery, dark amber-orange color, with a beige head, nice spicy nose of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, allspice, with some pumpkin pie crust, pumpkin, bready, biscuity, toasted, caramel malt notes, with some cinnamon oat, faint spiced granola bar accents in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a very nice spicy pumpkin pie character, with a good cinnamon, nutmeg, clove spiciness, bready, biscuity, toasted, caramel malt, toffee, oatmeal cereal flavour, with pumpkin pie crust, caramelized pumpkin flesh backbone, leading towards a spicy pumpkin pie, lingering biscuity, bread, toasted, caramel maltiness finish. A not overpowering pumpkin ale, that was nice!

Bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours an orange red with a white head. Nose is pumpkin and spice. The beer is very smooth in taste and mouthfeel. This was my first pumpkin beer. Not my favorite but not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

CapFlu (4616) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 10, 2013
(650ml bottle) In-person trade from Ferris. Pours a quick dissipating yellow frothy head atop a red body. Nose of very mild pumpkin pulp and slight spice. Somewhat thin, tonic and vegetable. Not sweet at all and authentic take on a pumpkin ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

i love a good pumpkin beer in the fall and this is by far the best i’ve ever had and it’s from right here in alberta! what could be better than combining pumpkin pie and beer into one foody beverage!

Theydon_Bois (9946) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2013
Bottle split at Endo’s, thanks to MJ for the trade, 26/05/13. Very lightly hazed golden amber with a thin off white head. Nose is spiced fruits, clove, sugars, pumpkin, caramel. Taste comprises sweet sugars, steeped fruits, clove, spice, pumpkin, light apricot notes. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, fruity spicey finish. One of the best (I’m not a big fan) pumpkin beers I’ve had - good balance of sweet and spice.

I got this in a slightly different bottle but I think it is essentially the same brew as listed here. The pumpkin pie flavor was a tad overwhelming for me and really drowned out any of the other flavors. Personally I feel it is a bit of a novelty and I might get it for a Thanksgiving or Halloween party but wouldn’t purchase it regularly.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2014 Good, pours reddish brown. Definite pumpkin pie flavour and aroma. Bit watery. Now to find a whipped cream flavour beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a clear deep copper with nice big white head that after a few minutes amounts to a small white ring around the glass. Aroma is of nice pumpkin pie(cinnamon, nutmeg, and some other spices you may find in pumpkin pie). Flavours consist of pumpkin pie spices, mostly nutmeg, cinnamon, and slightly nutty. definitely one of the better pumpkin beers i’ve had.

Thanks to Reimer for this. Pours a clear dark amber with a small white ring. Aroma is pumpkin spice, cinnamon and nutmeg. Taste is not overpowering. Pumpkin spice, cinnamon, nutmeg are all in pretty good balance. Easy drinking.
