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

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°

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2009 My Bottom Line :
Nutmeg-doused gingerbread men playfully adorn the lightly caramelized cereals of this well-built, easy-drinking novelty brew.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A sheet of foam shrinks to a ring atop the luminous amber-hued red.
-The nose concentrates on spiciness, and thus appears a tad linear; the biscuity cereals tasted could be more prominent in the aroma.
-The prickly carbonation remains smooth throughout.
-The mouthfeel is well fed while never being cumbersome.

Bottle. Thx Mike!!

Pours a dak transparent red with a small beige head. Aroma has a whack of nutmeg... tons of nutmeg. Other scents on the nose are well pumpkin and I wanna say pie crust. Wow! it tastes like pumpkin pie in a bottle!. Enough said. Feels alright on te palate. Loses marks for not tasting like a beer... but for weirdness and taste, it gets a thumbs up!

Had in bottle at Bottlescrew Bills, Calgary AB. Overall, a spectacular beer. Aroma is purely of pumpkin pie and thanksgiving dinner. A wonderful and spectacular beer.Flavour is less flavourful that you would expect from the aroma. Pumpkin, spicy herbal flavours and malts are all present. overall, a great beer.

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 7, 2008
Light copper. Minimal head. Aroma of pumpkin meat and spices. Spice flavour up front then a pumpkin finish. More bitterness and hops than usual for a pumpkin beer. Overall a tad thin perhaps with dominant dark spice notes.

Oakes (13601) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 2, 2007
Bright amber colour. Heavy spice aroma of mace and cinnamon along with a rich toffee maltiness. Flavour is again very heavy on the spice - cinnamon, allspice being predominant. Malts are thick, but still not enough to provide complete balance against the onslaught of spice.

DuffMan (8174) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 30, 2007
Pours a bright clear amber orange with a moderate foamy head that fades fairly quickly. Delicious, but muted, aromas of gingerbread and nutmeg (best appreciated if you let it warm a bit). Sweet toffee malt up front with a spicey pumpkin pie finish covered in nutmeg and cloves. Almost a tartness to the finish that brings to mind a California common style, which keeps this beer from becoming cloying or too sweet. Light in the body, bordering on thin. Very enjoyable-- a nice fall treat!

Tastes like pumpkin pie, rather enjoyable for those who like pumpkin pie. Beautiful colour also.

Flavour has some toasted malt, pie spice notes and some late hops. Finishes dry with some leafy and earthy aftertastes. Medium body, has a light carbonation.
