Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 23, 2012
Single bottle purchased from a Calgary Co-op Liqour Store on 09/18/2012. Colour: Beautiful clear dark orange with red hues. Low creamy light brown head. Nose: breaded pumpkin with healthy dose of all-spice. There is some espresso deeply hidden. Of all the pumpkin beers I have tasted in my time - this one has the most pumpkin-like aroma. Taste: Medium-light sweet, medium-light bitter, medium-light sour. Light caramel on-set and then the pumpkin takes over - and combined with the caramel, it truly gives the taste of pumpkin pie. Medium body and slightly sticky. Carbonation is fairly weak but this allows for more of a full pumpkin taste. Spice is curiously dull considering it was prominent in the aroma. Drinkable.

mcberko (6516) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 30, 2011
341mL bottle, pours a hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma of cinnamon and nutmeg, rather than pumpkin. Flavour is the same, with some pumpkin pie. Boring / decent.

reebtogi (4183) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 20, 2011
341mL bottles poured golden-amber color with small white head and virtually no lacing. Aromas are the high point of this beer with pumpkin and nutmeg and cinnamon dominating. Taste is of pumpkin pie spices and some hop bitterness in the finish mixed with more spices. Quite a nicely done beer with a decent balance of flavors.

solidfunk (4013) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 17, 2011
Wasnít sure this would work, especially because Iím not a huge pumpkin pie fan but this beer is good. Smells and has a pumpkin pie start, finishes with a touch of bitterness

maley1 (781) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 18, 2011
Golden clear amber pour with small off white head. Aroma of nutmeg and cinnamon. Taste of pumpkin pie and nutmeg with a bit of cinnamon. Nice taste until the aftertaste took over which was not all that pleasant. Could of easily scored much higher because of that.

gramity (1307) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 15, 2011
Pours a pale golden copper colour, finger of head (after an aggressive pour) little retention, body barbonation is almost non-existent and no real lacing. Scent is rather mild, but the nutmeg seems to dominate followed by some green pumpkin, some cinnamon and leafy hops on the finish. The spices really shine on this one, with nutmeg and cinnamon coming through. The pumpkin comes through on the finish and and is a bit nutty with some bready caramel malts that linger on the tongue. Medium bodied ale, goes down smooth with a touch of a dry finish. I thought it would be a bit more watery given the lack of visible body carbonation. Overall this pumpkin offering is quite tasty, easily drinkable, and is the perfect complement to a fall meal
