Ottawa Brewpub. Arrived with a nice size creamy head. Has a dark amber colour. Good lacing. A bit spicy mouthfeel. Came with some cinnamon sprinkled on top, maybe too much seeing as it’s the only aroma I got at first. Pumpkin flavours for sure as well as nutmeg, spices. Pretty good pumpkin ale, happy to have tried for my birthday (well, early bday drink).

Pours a cloudy copper/brown with little to no head and after a few minutes just a few spots. Aroma is cloves, all spice, pumpkin pie filling, and light maltiness. Flavour is tart(possibly lacto) faint malt and not much else.

Thanks to cfrancis for this one. Pours a clear orangish amber with a small white head. Aroma of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, biscuit and sweet cereal malts. Taste is off... Sour pumpkin, cinnamon, light pumpkin but mainly the lactic takes over... I’d have to assume this beer is an off batch.

I used to love Halloween before I got into craft beer. Now I have to drink pumpkin beers for a month and a half. Pours clear amber. All the typical punkin pie spiciness obstinacy with a little astringency in finish. Some sweetness as well as some salt. Tap at Byward brewpub.

HogTownHarry (6303) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUN 4, 2013
October 28, 2012 - 8th Annual Volo Cask Days. Cloudy amber-orange with a decent foamy off-white head. Smells like a solid but not amazing pumkin ale - sweet bready malt backbone, plenty of nutmeg and cinnamon; a bit sweet, hard to judge the alcohol from the aroma. Taste follows, but a little papery and dry, a bit too much spice - like cinnamon dust, it was almost gritty (7-). Average body, astringent, mildly carbonated, finishes very quickly - would like to rate it higher, but just okay, ultimately.

On tap at the brewpub (Bank St.). There seems to be wide score variation here, but I’m on the side that enjoyed this. Sprinkles of pumpkin seasoning on the head is sort of cheating, but whatever. Spicy, chai tea aroma. Pumpkin pie sweetness in the flavor. The tea spiciness to it is nice.

rejtable (1801) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 15, 2012
Pours dark amber, with a nice foamy head. Creamy in the mouth. Notes of pepper and pumpkin. Good long bitter finish. Not the most complex pumpkin beer out there, but decent nonetheless.

czar (5849) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 4, 2012
cask days @ beau’s oktoberfest, 2012. cloudy medium dark amber, orange hue, with a small white cap. tons of spices, all-spice, clove but mainly nutmeg. bland herbaceous hops, medium body, short citrusy finish. unbalanced brew.

probstblueribbon (3326) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 2, 2012
Pint at Westboro location. Very deep amber, no head, sprinkling of pumpkin spice on top. Strong whiff of spices (go figure), some malts beneath, struggling for attention, the spices dominate. Medium body, relaxed effervescence. Still plenty of spice, a lot more malt balance, slightly fruity, drinkable; dry with minimal bitterness and a decent malty finish.

VT (1795) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 1, 2012
Cask at Vankleek Hill’s/Beau’s Oktoberfest. Opaque orange, no head. Smell is pumpkin, cloves, cinnamon. Taste is pumpkin and tons of spices: cloves, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, I can almost taste the pie itself. Light herbal, and somewhat citrusy bitterness. Interesting lingering spicy notes. Light bodied, watery mouthfeel. An excellent pumpkin ale!
