3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a very clear ruby red with a nice off white head. When I took my first whiff I though it was all over. Aroma was of spice, carrot, nutmeg, and a big old dominant soap smell. Luckily that is where the soap ended. Tastes was of cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin pie, caramel and brown sugar all blended beautifully. Had a medium body with low carbonation. Felt very clean with a nice cinnamon kick near the end. Bad smell, great taste.

Bottle thanks to presario. Pours a clear and copper color with a small white head. The aroma is very good; sweet pumpkin, spices, caramel goodness, I can almost smell whip cream in this aroma. The aroma is just perfectly like a pumpkin pie. The flavor is spicy, lots of pumpkin, smooth and easygoing. A perfect example of the style.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Very lightly hazed golden amber with a thin off white head.
Nose is spiced fruits, clove, sugars, pumpkin, caramel.
Taste comprises sweet sugars, steeped fruits, clove, spice, pumpkin, light apricot notes.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, fruity spicey finish.
One of the best (I’m not a big fan) pumpkin beers I’ve had - good balance of sweet and spice.

2013-11-09. Crisp dark orange body, large off white head. 3++ Pleasantly spicey aroma, lots of nutmeg I think, sweet malt core. 7+ Smooth average plus bodied palate. Pleasantly sweet malty core, pleasant spice. Very nice stuff, full flavoured yet fairly well balanced. Better than expected! Bottle cellared several months via trade with Ferris

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear amber, minimal white head. Smell is strong pumpkin, as well as some nutmeg, cinnamon and coriander. Taste is nutmeg and cinnamon, some pie crust and finishes with a long lingering pumpkin taste, leaving a slight slimy pumpkin film in your mouth. Good fall beer, tastes exactly as advertised.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a bright clear amber orange with a moderate foamy head that fades fairly quickly. Delicious, but muted, aromas of gingerbread and nutmeg (best appreciated if you let it warm a bit). Sweet toffee malt up front with a spicey pumpkin pie finish covered in nutmeg and cloves. Almost a tartness to the finish that brings to mind a California common style, which keeps this beer from becoming cloying or too sweet. Light in the body, bordering on thin. Very enjoyable-- a nice fall treat!
