Golden straw in color hazy with a thin head. Having been there the day they brewed this beer I was so happy to have tried it. Awesome spice and terrific added pumpkin. This was a great beer.

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

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.
