3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a light orange amber with a big frothy white top. Aroma is faint pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg. Taste is light, slight pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg spices with a small roasted malt in the background. A "lighter" pumpkin ale.

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.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

I tried several pumpkin ales together. Of the three brands I tried, I would say this was the best. It has a very soft, pumpkiny palate and I absolutely love pumpkin. Cloudier than the other’s I tried, I prefer cloudy and thick.

Bottle. By the sounds of it, this stuff is much better on tap. Or maybe something is changed in 2012. Aroma is a little earthy, yes some pumpkin and a slight caramel maltiness. Smooth, medium body. Easy drinking but I didn’t get much of the "pumpkin pie" effect. Mostly just a drinkable pale ale. I prefer a pumpkin ale to pop a bit more.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is good. Pours orange-amber with just slight carbonation for a great pour from the bottle. Aroma is inviting - it has the pumpkin spice of course, but the hop varieties come through as well. Taste is mild sweet with just a slight bite at the start of the sip. One of the better pumpkin beers.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
It pours a deep dark orange with golden highlights; the head is off-white and soapy. The aroma has notes of: roasted pumpkin seed, nutmeg, cinnamon, pumpernickel bread, and a sweet maltiness. The taste is light sour that finishes dry and slightly salty; there are notes of: cereal, treacle, slight roasted pumpkin, and light floral hoppiness. The palate is light bodied, watery-thin, light carbonation, and medium finish. Overall, it’s definitely accurate to the description. However, it’s far too subtle - doesn’t seem right to call it much of a pumpkin beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle purchased at Dundurn LCBO Hamilton Ontario. Pour is surprisingly boring cloudy/ clear with a white head that dies to nothing. No lacing. Nose is pumpkin, but rather subdued, a little nutmeg, pumpkin pie like. Tastes a little bitter and slightly dry. Not their best performance.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled On: September 30, 2011
So, according to the bottle, this beer was 5 days old when I bought it, and 6 days old when I drank it.....FRESH! I tried this beer on October 6, 2011 after purchasing from the Queen’s Quay LCBO in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a translucent golden orange with a thin off-white head. Pumpkin and spices dominated the aroma with not much else. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium-high carbonation. The flavour is malt, grains, and pumpkin. Not as pumpkin-pie-y as some American offerings, but a good beer nonetheless.

Bottle, pours a nice amber, smell is up there with the best of the pumpkin beers, very nice an lively smell, the taste is a bit faint for my liking, it was spicy but it needed a bit more flavour. good offering
