Very good, pours reddish brown. Definite pumpkin pie flavour and aroma. Now to find a whipped cream flavour beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The flavor has some good malt,pumpkin,cinnamon,nutmeg. There is nothing that is really overpowering. It feels balanced. The aroma steals the shows in this one. There is good cinnamon and nutmeg and a touch of pumpkin. Itís just smells great. The warmer it getís the better the aroma is. Pours a deep copper color with a nice off white head that quickly disappears to a thin ring. It finishes with some good lingering spices. I have to say that I am not a fan of pumpkin pie. But i am constantly reaching for another one of these. I think they did a great job with this one.

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 canít go wrong with Alley Kat!

Gorbalev (2893) - 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.

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. Iíve encountered occasional sediment at the bottom, but usually in those older batches and not the fresh stuff.

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.

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!
