Metalchopz (2285) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 19, 2011
Had this one a few years back and had liked it. Came with some spices on top of the head. This year, had it on cask (so no spices). Cloudy amber colour with a small off-white cap, low retention and minimal lacing. Nice light spicy nose with the cinnamon dominating and notes of pumpkin and nutmeg. Slightly watery mouthfeel. Mild spicy taste which is pretty close to the aromas, except for a little sourness. Refreshing enough pumpkin ale, but not sure about the little sourness (if infected). Recommended as a session spiced ale if you like an easy-going mild seasonal.

On tap at the bank street location. Unreal aroma on this one. It makes the beer. Great pumpkin taste. Really liked this one

Lubiere (9998) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 7, 2011
A reddish copper ale with a thin mocha head. Served with a dash of pumpkin spices. In aroma, intense sweet pumpkin spices, quite nice. In mouth, a smooth sweet caramel malt with light spices, lingering a bit. Overall, not bad. On tap at Bank street location, Oct. 5, 2011, as The Pumpkin.

jercraigs (7812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 21, 2010
2010-10-13. Crisp dark orange amber body with a modest beige head. Lovely spicy aroma with prominent nutmeg announces itself a good distance from the glass. 7+ The flavour is surprisingly mild after being enticed by the fullness of the aroma. Strong fruity pumpkin character, but the spices are very secondary, lacking the oomph of the aroma. The spice does grow a bit as it warms but is still relatively mild. Smooth average plus bodied palate is lightly carbonated. Enjoyable but does not quite live up to the promise of the aroma. On tap at the brewpub.

TaktikMTL (5761) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 20, 2010
En fût. Pinte dégustée directement à la brasserie (Établissement de la rue Bank). Arôme: Odeur de clous de Girofle et de muscade avec une pointe de citrouille. Apparence: La couleur est ambrée avec une moyenne densité de bulle. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de clous de Girofle et de citrouille. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement huileuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de citrouille en arrière goût. (Rating #3321)
