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°

HogTownHarry (6131) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - FEB 12, 2009
Bottle (341ml). Shared by blankboy with me and garthicus. Clear bright brassy-amber with a smallish off-white creamy head. Aroma of pumpkin, light cream, mildly acidic nutmeg/allspice - it needs a few seconds to open up, though, initially it was quite ... vegetal. Taste - more inital bitterness, plenty of flowery pumpkin spice, but quite a maple sweet character to it in the end - sticky, thin, mildly carbonated .... I liked it!

Ferris (5009) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 23, 2012
Draft - Pumpkin, nutmeg, clove, all the right players in balance. Clear amber with minimal head. Spice is held in check, unlike many others, allowing the pumpkin to shine. One of my favorites from this brewery.

presario (4709) - 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.

CapFlu (4618) - 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

solidfunk (4493) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 17, 2011
Wasn’t sure this would work, especially because I’m not a huge pumpkin pie fan but this beer is good. Smells and has a pumpkin pie start, finishes with a touch of bitterness

reebtogi (4402) - 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.

rederic (3063) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 24, 2013
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!

Gorbalev (2958) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 18, 2009
Bottle, courtesy of Jimmay (thanks!). Dark orange with lots of brown, small still white head. Great aroma, Pumpkin pie mixed with caramel. Yum. Taste follows exactly - very sweet and very spicy and very very tasty. A tan thin I suppose. Really liked this one, certainly in the upper end of pumpkin ales I have ever tried.

Thanks to HogTownHarry for sharing this with Blankboy and I. Appearance: Orange red with a small head. Aroma: Pumpkin spice, pie, nice! Flavour: Yes, a lot of pumpkin. Like a wonderful glass of pumpkin pie. Smashing.

341ml brown bottle. Pours a clear brassy orange colour. Head is billowy upon first pour, slowly fades to a ring. Pumpkin pie spice aroma - sweet, clovey, nutmeg, some caramelish malt. 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.
