COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

ILduce (198) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 7, 2013
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.

In bottle from LCBO .. not bad, nice balance of pumpkin and spice. Better than some of the other options available .. I would consider buying again

asheft (2445) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2013
Bottle. Spicy gingerbread aroma with a little clove and brown sugar. Dark yellow under some of white lace. Faintly bitter ginger and brown sugar. Delicate. Light body, moderate carbonation, slight lingering bitterness.

Eructoblaster (2855) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 2, 2013
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.

samzim (100) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 28, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2013 Spicy aroma with notes of clove. Hazy clear orange colour. Flavours of pumpkin, cinnamon, and cough syrup. Medium body. Not the best pumpkin ale iíve tried.

Canmoore (203) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2013
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.

DuffMan (6164) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 26, 2013
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.

TheJester (1728) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 17, 2013
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.
