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°

The pumpkin pie spice is really all i can get on the nose of this, which is delightful in its own right, it smells exactly like pumpkin pie! The flavor is alot more subtle, with the pie spice being only really on the after palate. There is a light ale behind it, but the pie spice still dominates. Not often i’ll comment on a label, but this one is great for an october seasonal beer.

I got this in a slightly different bottle but I think it is essentially the same brew as listed here. The pumpkin pie flavor was a tad overwhelming for me and really drowned out any of the other flavors. Personally I feel it is a bit of a novelty and I might get it for a Thanksgiving or Halloween party but wouldn’t purchase it regularly.

Bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours an orange red with a white head. Nose is pumpkin and spice. The beer is very smooth in taste and mouthfeel. This was my first pumpkin beer. Not my favorite but not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A great light beer to go with a meal. This beer is similiar in taste to session ale. The fine hints of beer mean you have to drink it by itself

This is a seasonal favorite of mine - the missus and I look forward to it every October. Aroma is fantastic - nutmeg, clove, pumpkin - smells like fresh pumpkin pie. Tends to be a bit hazy or cloudy in the glass, reasonable head and average lacing. I agree with what someone else said - definitely best at the start of its limited brewing season, as the taste and palate of this delicious beer starts to get a bit bland and gritty as you get farther from Halloween. I’ve encountered occasional sediment at the bottom, but usually in those older batches and not the fresh stuff.

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