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°

Cirrhosis (1281) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 10, 2009
"Beer appears crystal clear reddish brawn with a noisy tan cap that is quickly reducing to nothing. Right off the top the aroma reminds me exactly of apple cinnamon yogurt. I guess can smell pumpkin in this but I might just be being tricked by the name of the brew. Aroma is ok maybe just a touch sour. Taste is watery and malty with a cinnamon kick and a clove finish. Can’t really notice any pumpkin in the taste but it does remind me of pumpkin pie. Sour, watery and a touch of spice this sums up this brew. Drinkable but disappointing but what ells do you expect from Alley Kat."

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.

Bottle, at Original Joe’s. Light spicy pumpkin aroma. Pours amber with thin head. Some pumpkin spiciness, does have some body. Not too bad.

Powertrip (1000) - 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.

Pours brown with a thin head. Pleasant aroma of cinimon and nut met. it really smells like pumpkin pie. Thick creamy brew with lots of spices and malty flavour. however I feel that this beer is way too heavy on the nut meg. Its almost like drinking cheap spiced rum. I can see why people like it but deffinatley not my thing.

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.

MunBro (895) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 12, 2014
Deep orange pour with a white head. Aroma is big on cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, pumpkin, and spices. Tastes the same, a smooth drinking autumn beer from a great local brewer. You can’t go wrong with Alley Kat!

Aptly named pumpkin PIE ale - this smells and tastes like pie - I think they even captured the flavour of the crust. Pours clear reddish bronze with little head. Cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin, crust. Taste is similar. Sweet, but clean. Drinkable - spices aren’t overpowering, it’s still clearly a beer and not egg nog.
