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

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 mL bottle from the LCBO, served in a stem glass. Pours hazy orange amber with a small off-white head. The head fades to a thin cover and leaves a small amount of fine lace. On the nose, there are big notes of pumpkin and vanilla, along with typical fall spices, cinnamon and nutmeg. The flavour is mildly sweet and slightly spicy with huge pumpkin and spice notes. The finish introduces subtle hops and pale malts but the overall impression is of pumpkin. On the palate, it is medium in body with a smooth, creamy texture and average carbonation. Overall, this is a decent but not great pumpkin ale. There is a slight off flavour throughout that was a little distracting. 2011-11-02

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bouteille de 500ml. Bière orangée. Le nez est un mélange de tarte à la citrouille avec sa muscade, sa cannelle, ses clous et piments de Jamaique. Mais pour qu’une bière de ce type elle doit avoir une charpente pour supporter le tout, ce qu’elle n’a pas. Elle est trop mince.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500mL bottle from LCBO. Pours clear orange. Smells of pumpkin and spices. Pumpkin and spice taste as well, with a full body and low carbonation. A very nice pumpkin ale - I highly recommend it.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Consumed Oct. 4th, bottled Sep. 30. 500ml from the LCBO. Pours a beautiful amber with a disappointingly small white head that quickly dies. Minor lacing.Aroma of malt, spice clove and lots of cinnamon. I’m a big fan of the aroma.Tastes of spice, cinnamon gives it a rather dry taste, it tastes similar to the spices used in pumpkin pie but slightly off. Medium bodied. Overall not the best pumpkin ale. Respectable but won’t buy again. Maybe once a year but nothing more. $3.60/500ml at LCBO

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale amber pour. The nose is fairly sweet and a kittle bit spicy. A touch of clove and cinnamon (more the latter). Softly sweet with a bit of
lingering spice. There is a lingering touch of malt sweetness. Pretty nice.
