Lubiere (12970) - 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.

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.

[4058-20111030] Cask. Smells like gingerbread men. Hazy, dark amber brown body body with a quick bubbly head. Gingery gourd flavour is a little watery. Medium body. A little bland but not bad. (6/3/6/3/13) 3.1
(Cask Days 2011 @ Hart House; Toronto, ON)

solidfunk (7702) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - OCT 22, 2013
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.

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)

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 2, 2016
Bottle:   Tart, dry, and a bit of a sour example.   Unsure if that is what is intended, but it has more in common with a Sour than a Pumpkin Ale.   A little nutmeg towards the back.   Dark orangish with caramel hues.   Little off-white head, sparce lacing.   Very tart finish, a tad sweet as well, with lingering cinnamon and nutmeg.   Not full on sour, but getting there... ugh...

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.

Cask days 2011. My wife bought this one, and im glad she did. Nice spicy nose, pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg cloves. But it was all well balanced and somewhat subtle. The balance was great, the finish was biscuity sweet. Wow, i was very impressed.

probstblueribbon (3726) - 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.
