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°

65 cl bottle, Calgary, AB , Canada via coop. Clear iced tea colour. Caramel and clove aroma. Somewhat sweet, interesting. Not over powering. More spice coming through, then a long bright hop finish.

341ml brown bottle. Pours a clear brassy orange colour. Head is billowy upon first pour, slowly fades to a ring. Pumpkin pie spice aroma - sweet, clovey, nutmeg, some caramelish malt. Flavour has some toasted malt, pie spice notes and some late hops. Finishes dry with some leafy and earthy aftertastes. Medium body, has a light carbonation.

patricks110 (1758) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 12, 2008
Had in bottle at Bottlescrew Bills, Calgary AB. Overall, a spectacular beer. Aroma is purely of pumpkin pie and thanksgiving dinner. A wonderful and spectacular beer.Flavour is less flavourful that you would expect from the aroma. Pumpkin, spicy herbal flavours and malts are all present. overall, a great beer.

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 11, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2009 My Bottom Line :
Nutmeg-doused gingerbread men playfully adorn the lightly caramelized cereals of this well-built, easy-drinking novelty brew.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A sheet of foam shrinks to a ring atop the luminous amber-hued red.
-The nose concentrates on spiciness, and thus appears a tad linear; the biscuity cereals tasted could be more prominent in the aroma.
-The prickly carbonation remains smooth throughout.
-The mouthfeel is well fed while never being cumbersome.

Bottle. Thx Mike!!

HogTownHarry (6129) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - FEB 12, 2009
Bottle (341ml). Shared by blankboy with me and garthicus. Clear bright brassy-amber with a smallish off-white creamy head. Aroma of pumpkin, light cream, mildly acidic nutmeg/allspice - it needs a few seconds to open up, though, initially it was quite ... vegetal. Taste - more inital bitterness, plenty of flowery pumpkin spice, but quite a maple sweet character to it in the end - sticky, thin, mildly carbonated .... I liked it!

swoopjones (6201) - Buffalo, New York, USA - APR 17, 2009
Bottle courtesy of Jason from Camerons. Pours mild to medium amber. Aromas of allspice, cinnamon, pumpkin pie. Taste fis what youd expect. Wasnt crazy about it but found myself looking for more. Decent but like Michigan & Shipyard better

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 23, 2009
Bottle, thanks to Macadem. Pours medium amber, thin off-white head, passable lacing. Nose is very soft, with cinnamon, clove, pumpkin, some malt as well. Palate is very pumpkin-pie like, but still quite soft, and honestly rather watery. I like this, and it makes me desirous of having, better pumpkin beers in the future.
