A bit late in the season for this one but I found it while looking through the Xmas selection at the LCBO. Very hazy brown pour with a thin but noticeable head. Strong pumpkin and spice smell. Overpowers everything else. Taste is synthetic, well not beer like. It tastes like beer with crap added. Sure enough thatís what it is, and that addition is pumpkin, and man can you taste that. This is the most Pumpkin tasting Pumpkin ale Iíve had. I canít really decide if this is a good or a bad thing. It tastes odd, not the way a beer should taste. Trying to forget that itís a beer and see if I enjoy it I find I do. A lot. Not easy to drink. That spice tends to make your throat close up on a big swig, so this is a sipper. Brings to mind thoughts of pumking pie, thanksgiving, family and good times. The aftertaste is brilliant. It makes me keep wanting more, which is good since itís a big bottle. Yeah I think I dig this. Itís lacking some beer qualities I expect to find due to them being overpowered but I canít really say that itís a bad thing as the end result is rather good.

It poured a brown color with a small tan head. The aroma was of pumpkin, nutmeg and cinnamon. The taste was much the same, not much sweetness. It had a medium body with high carbonation. Tasty.

Pours a nice dark orange/copper color with a small off-white head. Aromas and flavors of pumpkin (obviously), spices and caramel malt. The body is a bit thin and finishes sweet. A very good pumpkin beer, but not one of the upper echelon pumpkin beers.

Dark amber with a light white head. Aroma is pumpkin spice, a little cinnamon and nutmeg. Flavor is caramel malt with some of the spice in the aroma. Finish is a little watery which takes away from the overall flavor a little. Still, nice pumpkin beer.

Wow! Fantastic for pumpkin ale. I donít know what it is but I am really fascinated with pumpkin beer. If I see one I must try it. So far my favorite in the style is the Brureyís Autumn Maple because it is barrel aged. I know itís yams but same idea anyway. The spices are perfection. Aroma is rich pumpkin and spices. Alcohol is not listed. I am guessing it is because it is probably below 5%. Rogue if you are listing Please please please barrel age this beer.!!!!
