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°

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.

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.

Gorbalev (3000) - 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.

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.

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.

Nice aroma of coriander and pumpkin spice. Has a huge head and foggy orange body. NIce soft pumpkin flavour, not too overbearing. A little too weak on the mouth though. This is nice however, and highly drinkable.

rereview jun 10/08: this beer, a beer that we used as punishment for getting scored on during a fooz game has gotten thicker on the pumpkin and somehow does not taste old... go figure. So, I poured 4 bottles into my black toilet....produced a huge, thick bubbly head with great retention and, well, the lacing was hard to judge as it did not hold up to a double flush. Best cap ever produced in my toilet by a beer. Serious. Got the pics. Eat it, Alley Kat.

Get it while it’s fresh! If you wait until, I’ll guess late November and beyond, expect this to taste like crap as it will have a short shelf life. Then you will miss a decent brew. Poured out a small, rocky, tan crown that faded quickly. Nice clear deep copper apperance. The aroma is pretty good - the spices come first (nutmeg, corriander, clove) followed by soft pumpkin (not pumpkin pie), some odd, twisted mint smell and some malt. Interesting thing here is how the aroma continues to evolve with the spice of the pumpkin showing up right as you run out of breath. The taste is pretty decent however there are no overpowering flavours and for me that is a bit of a shame. Comes across tasty but a bit weak. Maybe this is a good thing as this stays very drinkable. Taste is not as complex as the aroma - soft blend of spices and very soft pumpkin. Mainly clove. Some malt taste. Nearing medium bodied. OK carbonation but a bit tart and dry. Clovish aftertaste with very muted hop bitterness. Decent beer worth trying. Me thinks me get a case for the fridge. Success for Sherbrooke Liquor Store after shitting the bed with the green beer.
