draft at Blue Monk, lighter to medium brown/amber pour. somewhat flat pour/little carbonation. Just right with cinnamon, clove, allspice notes. not a big fan of pumpkins. But really like this. spices were not overbearing, very enjoyable

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Barcade. Pours a reddish brown with small white head. Aromas of malt, pumpkin, czech hops, and nutmeg. Taste is very nice: hops, lots of cinnamon, brown sugar and pumpkin pie. Super drinkable and refreshing with nice balance with regards to the sweetness. This one totally surprised me for the last pumpkin beer I will drink until September.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Dark amber color, hazy, with creamy head. Nice aroma of caramel. Good body strength; very good caramel flavor, powerful; strong bitterness; there is some candi sugar, moderate residual sweetness, and some pleasant but mild yeast character, some earthy touch too in the end; long final.
Bold and solid brew.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Tangle Town, pours a clear copper with a small beige head. Aroma and flavour of mild pumpkin spices like many others, with nutmeg and cinnamon, along with some brown sugar. Fairly boring stuff, though nothing offensive. OK.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap @ Elysian’s GPBF 2012... Poured dark brown-ish red with a thin head. On par I think for what they were aiming at here. Lager yeast had a minimal presence with slight spices and malts shining through. Hints of cinnamon and clove came through with dark brown sugars and nutty malt showcased in the finish.
