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°

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 12, 2009
Bottle, at Original Joe’s. Light spicy pumpkin aroma. Pours amber with thin head. Some pumpkin spiciness, does have some body. Not too bad.

bulldogops (1111) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 7, 2010
Bottle. 5.4%. Clear copper-amber pour, that produces a minimal bubbly foam even when poured aggressively. Aroma is potent, quite a bit of cinnamon, nutmeg, and a touch of pumpkin. Taste is malty and heavy on the nutmeg, hint of cinnamon, and sweet caramel. This is a pretty good seasonal, and despite the presence of fairly heavy flavours, it remains a balanced, full bodied ale.

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.

Cole (967) - , Alberta, CANADA - JAN 30, 2010
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.

maley1 (871) - 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.

jimmay (807) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 14, 2009
341 ml bottle. Pours deep amber in colour. Strong aroma and taste of nutmeg and pumpkin spices. Next to no head, and mildly carbonated. Good beer!

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.

MunBro (729) - 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!

hobbersr (690) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 18, 2008
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!
