12 oz bottle from Imbibe Wine. Nose is light nutmeg and cinnamon and a hint of cocoa. Clear rusty brown with a small beige head. Flavor is pumpkin pie spices and caramel. Very mediocre pumpkin ale. Glad I only bought one $2 bottle not a sixer or case!

Mooie gebalanceerde pumpkin ale. Kruidig, maar niet té. Mooie romige body ook. Proef je niet vaak in ales.

Draft at Universal Joint. Pours murky brown with a thick, creamy beige head and lots of lacing. Tastes like dry, bitter spice, pumpkin, roasted malt, and a hint of sweet pumpkin pie. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like sweet pumpkin pie, cinnamon, some vegetable, and some alcohol.

Tap. Pours hazy brown with thick, creamy off-white head. Aroma is pumpkin notes (not overdone), cookie and bready malts, some vanilla, light spice, and faint woodiness. Flavor is dry and malty with big spice presence, well balanced pumpkin and vanilla sweetness, with a good touch of hop bitterness; dry throughout. Medium body and carbonation.

Can at home courtesy of bmoosey, cheers Bruce!
Attractive dark ruby with beige head collapsing to lacing. Cinnamon buns and nutmeg on nose. Spicey and bready up front, a lil thin with a touch of acridity in finish that builds up. Reminds me of cinnamon grahams. Not quite my type but well done.

One of the best Pumpkin beers I have ever had. I wish I could enjoy more than just one sip.

A deep copper colour. Tasty, tasty, tasty. This beer isn’t super pumpkin-y, but I think it’s a big strength. It’s more of a pumpkin pie taste with nutmeg, cinnamon, and a hint of pumpkin.

12oz can picked up at The Grapevine
Pours clear dark brown with a medium sized beige head, good lacing. Aroma of caramel, nutmeg and spices. Taste of toasted malts, caramel, cinnamon, mild chocolate with bitterness in the finish
A decent Pumpkin beer, not overpowering.

Pours out like a super bubbly cola, dark brown body and large but quick fading tan head. Flat aroma of generic beer with a little bit of spice. Flavor is more interesting. I don’t really get any pumpkin, but lots of sweet and roasted malt with cinnamon. Light body with smooth carbonation is a pleasure to swish around. It’s fine.
