3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Orange/amber pour. Pumpkin in the aroma, spices, nutmeg, allspice. Taste of Pumpkin, allspice, nutmeg, very slight sweetness (brown sugar?), vanilla, vvery slight cinnamon. Still fairly hoppy, which means it tastes like a pumpkin beer as opposed to a pumpkin pie or a spicy sugary mess. The best of the Ontario Pumpkins.

Frothy head. Not a tremendous aroma, but the taste of the spices is strong. Cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. However, it has a watery finish.

Autum orangey redish fALl color. 1 finger head some carbination. smell is vanilla with light pumpkin pie. Taste starts off nothing like pumpkin ale. Carbination on tounge,medium bodied,feel the hops,kinda sweet popy ale then like 5-10 seconds later the flavours creep in smoothly with vanilla dommanet,sourish pumpkin puree taste kinda a little real pumpkin 2 and everything pumpkin pie but lightly. Cloves scratch throat a little. Not the best or worst pumpkin ale. Cheer’s.

500mL bottle bottled 18 days ago :).
An excellent fall ale. Not too heavy on the nutmeg or the pumpkin, but just enough for a great balance. Nice long finish. Will rebuy.

Smells like pumpkin pie, looks like a pumpkin, tastes like the pie. Orangy gold in colour with medium lacing. Taste is sweet and a little malty, palate is pretty light and carbonation a bit high. Not a bad drinkk, just nose heavy without much follow through. Tap at volos.
