mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 10, 2008
Bottle. Copper-orange body with a white creamy head. The aroma is really spicy and has notes of butterscotch, pumpkin, ginger, and nutmeg. The flavour is quite nice too - pumpkin notes are prominent though it’s nicely balanced with some sweet malts. Good stuff.

jercraigs (9836) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 4, 2008
2008-02-01. Bottle. Hazy brown body with a small white head. Strong smooth aroma of nutmeg. Smooth lightly spicy flavour with moderate malt foundation and a sweet overall impression. Average palate. Very drinkable, solid pumpkin brew.

Bottle shared with jerc, mabel, blankboy & mds - my bottle. Deep amber with a tight white head. Aroma has lots of nutmeg, a bit of cinnamon, and sweet malt & pumpkin - right on target. Medium bodied. Flavour is a bit mellower than the flavour suggests, but still very good, with that fresh pumpkin pie vibe that you get from the better examples of the style, but also enough of a malt character to remind you that it’s a beer.

Beershine (5221) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - DEC 10, 2007
On tap at brewpub Dec 2007. Nose of pie spices and the pumpkin vegetable: quite a pure nose. Some annoying sour notes in the flavors but yields nicely to pumpkin cheesecake flavors that redeem that. A little too thin in palate but still soft. Orange color but not much head.

Oakes (15651) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 10, 2007
Bright golden-amber. Lots of cinnamon, nutmeg and some lightly caramelized malts. Smooth spicy note, hints of cereal and light toffeeish malts. There’s a dash of vanilla accent here as well. Medium body, sweetish, spice-accented finish.

CapFlu (5101) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 12, 2007
(660ml bottle) Purchased at 6 Mile Offsale. Pours near headless with a deep, clear orange-bronze body. Strong aroma of pumpkin pie... mainly clove, cinnamon and nutmeg. Very flavourful. Almost the taste of eggnog mixed with squash. Tasty.
