3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
1/2 liter bottle: pours an orangey-amber hazed ale in the glass - 2 finger tight-pored off white cap lasts well, laces the glass. Moderate carbonation. Aromas of musty pumpkin shell and toasty-bready malts, a hint of sweetness, some grassyness. Medium bodied, demure rounded character. Flavor is a very pleasing pumpkin and caramalt blend in the front, some tostiness, some spice, some hop bittering to balance, this intensifies a bit going to a lingering balanced finish. A substantial pumpkin ale flavourful but demure without being understated - a very drinkable pumpkin brew. I like it.

Bottle LCBO: orange brown with small head. Smells like pumpkin pie with some grassy notes. Mellow, balanced taste is spicy- cinnamon, nutmeg- with pumpkin. A little earthy with a nice bitter end. Solid seasonal.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle - 500ml. Amber body with average carbonation and a thin, fading, off-white foamy/bubbly head. Decent malty/hoppy aroma with spicy and pumpkin hints. Taste is well balanced but it could be a bit stronger. Pumpkin and grassy notes are noticeable. Ends with a short bitter/herbal finish. Not bad, but rather ordinary.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear brown colour with basically no head at all. Aroma notes include stale cereals, nutmeg, cinnamon, and some clove. Tasting notes include more stale cereals, a touch of pumpkin, and some cinnamon.
I was actually quite disappointed, I really enjoy pumpkin beers, but this was quite disappointing. It must have been a bad batch, as the beer smells and taste quite stale.
This is unfortunate, I will have to try again to give a more accurate rating.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
