3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Volo, Toronto
Nice amber color; small head. Very light cinnamon aroma; some aroma of cookies or baked goods. Lean mouthfeel; there is a light biscuity malt flavor, roasted pumpkin seeds, and delicate cinnamon.
Interesting, far better than the average Pumpkin Beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft - Sweet Christmas spices. Clear gold with a rich white head. Spice is very much held in check. Pale malts come through and a pleasant sweetness. Smell is deceptively strong, but overall well balanced.

A malty-spicy aroma. A slightly brown appearance with lace and decent head. High carbonation. Sourish taste that barely let out the spices.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2009 2009-10-01. No notes. Much more mildly spiced than I remember the sample at Cask Days being, but I may be confusing it with something else since I don’t have notes below for that. Pleasantly quaffable, I look forward to more of this. Cask at C’est What
2007-10-XX. Draught at Cest What. Pint and a sampler. Orangey body with a smallish head, big fruity aroma like sweet orange with a hint of pumpkin. Sweet bready malt underlies a surprisingly bitter flavour. Modest ambiguous spice in the flavour - just a bit more noticeable in a second glass. Smooth average palate is lightly carbonated (3+). Very lovely and quaffable, but a touch less assertive in the pumpkin and spice department than I had hoped. Went back for more later. 8/3/7/3+/16-17

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled, shared with TylerDurden, bottled on Oct. 9 2014. Pale orange-gold, hazy, with a very lively off white head. The nose has big pumpkin and spices, a little bready, but notably devoid of darker elements (no brown sugar, no molasses etc). The palate opens with reedy thin malts, pumpkin, lighter spices than in the aroma. This edges toward sour in an odd way. Quite gassy. After the aroma this failed to impress me.

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.
