Brewed at Trafalgar. The new beer captures the essence of pumpkin pie thatís rich in aroma and spicy in flavour. The beer uses real pumpkin in the brew kettle and is infused with a blend of spices including nutmeg, ginger and cinnamon prior to fermentation. The result is golden ale heady in spices and flavor.

Bottle, shared with TylerDurden and my wife. Burnt orange body, average off white head. Sweet spicy pumpkin pie nose, lots of nutmeg. Toffee and spices, and definite PUMPKIN character which I really enjoyed. Much better than expected.

found this rating in my backlog. Another unremarkable, but not awful offering from black creek. Itís well made, but its boring. Light spices, cinnamon, cloves, sweet pumpkin. medium bitterness, mineral, spicy finish.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2014 I actually found this beer enjoyable. Nothing crazy or outstanding but I would buy it again.

500 mL bottle. The latest offering in this breweryís line of solid if unspectacular offerings. Not over-spiced, which is good, because I donít like super spicy pumpkin beers. Just not a style Iíve ever learned to appreciate.

A orange amber ale with a thin forthy off white head. In aroma, loads of caramel, nutty notes, light spices, cinnamon and butterscotch. In mouth, a nice caramel malt with ginger and cinnamon, grassy notes, actually not bad. Bottle from LCBO.

[5037-20121230] 500mL bottle. Floral sweet candied soap aroma. Clear, orange brown body with a quick creamy light tan head. Toasted herbal corn fruit and light straw grains in the flavour with a nice sweet aftertaste. Medium body. Would not have placed the spiced pumpkin without knowing first it was there. (6/3/6/3/13) 3.1

2012-12-30. Fairly crisp dark orange, very small frothy off-white head. Modest spicey aroma is lightly muddled but pleasant. Nutmeg? 6+ Flavour is similarly moderately spicey, muted sweet pumpkin and malt, moderate bitterness throughout, I suspect from the spices more than hops. Smooth average plus palate is lightly under carbonated but suits it otherwise. Decent, enjoyable but a bit dull. Bottle from the LCBO

The beer poured a translucent cherry red colour with a thin tan ring for a head. The aroma was weak pumpkin, caramel, and herbal hops. The bottle says spices as an ingredient, but Iím not feeling them aromatically. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour is weak pumpkin, grass, and bitter hops. I generally like pumpkin beers, but this is far from my favourite.

500 ml bottle. Pours a clear amber with a short lasting white head. Smell is cloves and cinnamon. Taste is cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, lemon. Excellent. Finish is spicy, not much bitterness per se. Medium to strong body, soft mouthfeel. Good pumpkin ale.

Hazy orange pour with pretty much no head. Watery spice in the scent. Lots of pumpkin in the mouth though followed by a rush of cinnamon and other spices. Wow that goes down well. Very refreshing. One of the best pumpkin Ales Iíve tried. Great Job Black Creek.
