Aroma: Spicey pumpkin and molasses aromas Taste: opening flavors are pretty spicy but it finishes fairly flat . No real hop presense to speak of Appearance: Clear dark amber body with moderately well retained head

This is one of the best pumpkin beers I have tried. Sample from Curtis from Fernie Brewing 5%. Pours a darker brown, that produces a bubbly foam. Aroma is potent, lots of toasted pumpkin seed and cinnamon, caramel malt. Taste is malty, lots of sweet and grainy notes, and a heavy fleshy pumpkin flavour This is a pretty good seasonal, and despite the presence of fairly heavy flavours, it remains a balanced, medium bodied brown ale.

Un couleur ambrée/orange avec un petit col blanc. L’arôme est des épices de la tarte à la citrouille mais pas beaucoup de citrouille. Le goût est similar, mais avec d’abord un goût de malt suivi par un peu de molasse.

Ferris (3011) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 29, 2013
Bottle - The usual pumpkin notes and spices with the hint of molasses. Dark clear brown with a beige head. Pumpkin up front, followed by spices and finishing with chocolate roasted malts. I think the finish really makes this beer, although a bit light on the palate.

Meh. Take a thin, watery brown ale and add seemingly random quantities of pumpkin and spices. A love a great pumpkin ale. This is not a great pumpkin ale.

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2013 Pours a clear dark brown with a small white head. On tap at beer revolution. Aroma of nutmeg, cinnamon, pumpkin and and caramel. Taste is nutmeg, cinnamon and pumpkin. Nice pumpkin beer that isn’t too artifical.

650ml brown bottle. Medium brown pour, tight beaded beige foam on top., some creamy lacing. Nose has clove and nutmeg. Taste has caramel malts, toasted malts, touch of earthy pumpkin. Caramel malts, toasty and pumpkiny finish with some grains. Nice brew, not overly spicy or sweet which is nice for the style.

Visual: Their label has undergone a transformation since the last time I had this, which made me wonder if they changed their recipe. Wth, label changing DOES work... Pours beer bottle brown without much head or retention, a few slow streams surfacing along the side of the glass. Nose: brown sugar caramel malts with hints of cinnamon. (5)-aromatic strength. Attack: light fizzy-tingly Mid-palate: cola medium (6)-sweetness, (MAIN) cola, brown sugar malts, (HINT) sarsaparilla, Finish: coriander dryness, traces of (2)-clove, crisp sweet-toffee malt finish. Summary: The spices are definitely there in this quite drinkable brew. It tastes mainly like a cola but with a creeper alcoholic kick and detectable pumpkin-seasonal spice notes. Overall decent but not addictive. (Note: all numbers above are on a 10-point scale, with 1 being weak and 10 being the strongest)

In bottle .. I was excited about a brown pumpkin ale but this one fell flat. Aroma of chocolate and almost mint ... not pumpkin. Taste was of cocoa and spice ... quite watery. It was OK, but poured most of it down the sink and would not buy again
