First timer for me, a lot better than most ratings maybe the 2014 version is different? Strong clove nose, pumpkin and brown sugar underneath. Cloudy orange, thick head with little retention. Pumpkin spice is dominant, but cloves are also prominent. Light body, alcohol not noticeable. Dry, not overly spiced. While pumpkin ales don’t lend themselves to revisiting, this is quite sessionable.

Soapkin ale. If they could catch the in between tastes of spices, malt, and pumpkin this beer would have a higher rating, but the aftertaste was all soap. It just dominated this beer. I tried it when it first came out on tap, maybe they fixed it now that they are bottling it.

BrewGoblin (310) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 26, 2014
I really wanted to love this, pumpkin anything is one of my favourite flavours. This beer was alright at best but there was always some soapy, astringent quality to it. It did had a nice flavour until that junk taste kicked in, ginger, allspice and roasted pumpkin, brown sugar and caramel malts. Very lightly hopped. Fix the soap issue and it’d be a pretty swell swill.

rejtable (1300) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 13, 2014
Pours light brown/orange with a large soapy head. Nose is gingerbread. Notes of pumpkin pie, ginger bread, cereal. Quite drinkable. Taste is medium sweet light bitter. Light body with medium carbonation.

JoeMcPhee (8410) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 3, 2014
Deep amber pour with a thick white head. The aroma has a bit of ginger, clove and some allspice along with a bit of white pepper. Lightly astringent with a touch of earthiness and some lingering bitterness.

Copper colour with a thin lace. Spice, nutmeg and cinnamon flavour. Sweet tangy finish.

Nice beer with a very gold balance. The spice shines through but the roasted pumpkin is lacking.

shorlin (650) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - OCT 27, 2013
Primarily nutmeg in the nose, but maybe (just maybe) I’m getting a little of the weizen as well. Colour is a great deep copper with a lasting white head. Taste is more pumpkin and spice. Not really my favourite style. Feel is medium-light. Finish is very clean. Not an everyday drinker for me.

HeistAlmighty (1127) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - OCT 13, 2013
500ml bottle. Pours a dark orangish brown, clear, decent sized head that lingers with some moderate lacing. Caramel malt and spice aroma. Taste is caramel malt, light spice, light pumpkin. Overall, pumpkin and spice are mild but well balanced.
