3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle from the LCBO. Clear bubbly copper with a smallish fizzy off-white head. Sharply spicy slightly vegetal aroma - plenty of nutmeg and cinnamon. Taste follows, a bit buttery. Light body, sharp carbonation, weirdly oily - taste fades incredibly fast. Meh.

Bottle from LCBO. Pours clear orange with a thin white head. Aroma of yoghurt, slight pumpkin hints, and no spice. Taste, however, is just pumpkin and spice. Thin-bodied. Not bad, but not great.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Orange ambery red to light orange golden pale away. 1 finger head. Fast amount of carbination then bam goís slow with all carbination. Smell is pumpkin pie. Taste well 1st sip was real pumpkin insides with roasted pumpkin seeds and was a tad sour. The roasted seeds came back on sip 3. It leavís me dry and the wetness goís fast but you also get cinnamon as the base, cloves that scrach up the throat and mabye some nutmeg. All pumpkin beers rock but some r better then otherís and thereís better. Fan of pumpkin beerís.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a slight hazy amber colour with a creamy off-white head that gives out a bit of lacing. Not really enjoying the scent. Reminds me of when you forget your pumpkin puree in the fridge for a while and they start turning bad. OK, not as bad as it sounds, but kind of outdated (maybe gets better near the last pour). Cannot smell the spices either. The taste is a bit better. Creamy mouthfeel with the Black Creek grain malt flavours. Still, not much spices. Preferred the new Rickards Cardigan for the spices of Autumn.

Poured from 500ml bottle. Poured clear copper orange colour with decent head, but disappeared quickly. Slight pumpkin aroma, with spicy malts. Taste about the same. Pumpkin flavour malt. Different, a nice change, but nothing spectacular.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
500mL LcBo bottle. Pours a nice clear orange with no head. The aroma is a lifeless spiced pumpkin type character that fails to impress in any way. The flavour is marginally better, with some standard pumpkin spice aspects propping up a mediocre malt body. Feels light with some residual sugars. I donít know, this stuff was so bland I really canít give it much points for anything really. I usually expect better from this brewery, even the stuff made at Trafalgar.

Bottle. Pours a murky orange brown, very little head. Nice pumpkin and spicey aroma. Nutmeg, cinnamon. Medium, creamy body. Sweet with a peppery overtone. Great clean finish. This was delicious. The flavours popped, but werenít overwhelming. Really nice!
