3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a transparent orange with a foamy white head. Aroma: Strong pumpkin spices: cinnamon, all-spice, cloves especially. Has a bit of a burnt scent to it. Faint hints of banana. Smells really dry and a bit unpleasant, despite the spices. Palate: medium bodied, very very fizzy, rather astringent, slightly dry finish, very very very long aftertaste. Taste: medium sweet at the start, then gets dry and spicy. Definitely a beer with a lot of pumpkin in it. Better than the pumpkin ales that taste just like lager.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Thick hazy amber, small sudsy off-white head, no real lacing.   Soft apple-cinnamon like
spices.   More on the nose than on the tongue.   Decent malt base, spicy without being over the top.
Almost full bodied.   Apple-Cinnamon like spices on the finish.   This one is a like the hot apple spiced
cider sort of Pumpkin Ale.   Pretty good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.5 bottle. Clear, brown color and a small, off-white head leaving no lacing. Aroma of cinnamon, coriander, and pumpkin. Taste is sweet, suffused with pumpkin and a mix of spices generally reminding of the fall spirit. Medium body, creamy texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is very sweet, more balanced than the rest but also more definitive when it comes to that spicy character. Overall not a bad beer, reinforced my faith in pumpkin brews.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle to taster
Some gourdiness, but that could be due to expectation. Clove, mace, cinnamon, very light citrus, pepper and malt. Translucent amber with a thin off white head. Taste is slightly sour and peppery with clove and mace and ending with some bitterness.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from LCBO. Hazy amber with a really fast dissipating head. Mmm, pickled (marinated?) pumpkin aroma, vinegary and slightly spicy - pretty nice, albeit a bit thin. And so is the palate - watery and weak, with a tingle of vinegary pumpkin. Amarillo, really? Waste of hops I’d say. Pretty disappointing.

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 mL Bottle. Deep gold body with a thin film of head that quickly settled to a wispy film. Pumpkin pudding stands out in the aroma over the pale malts, notes of banana and plum sauce, hops barely discernible. Pumpkin and pale malts pair up for the better part of the taste, subtle notes of treacle and grapefruit rind in the aftertaste, and then the hops do speak up but without much assertion. The best part is the clean finish.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle from the LCBO. Transparent orange straw body with minimal quickly dissipating white head. Notes of pumpkin, nutmeg, banana bread and some very faint hop aromas. Low percieved bitterness, minimal carbonation, and the beer is also very dry. Light bodied with pumpkin being the predominant part of the lengthy finish. Very light tasting and the most sessionable pumpkin beer I’ve tried.

Pours hazy orange amber with very small white head. Smell is pumpkin with a cider vinegar note. Pumpkin is less intense on the taste, but present. Also, pie spice, Clean, crisp. Low carbonation. Tame but tasty brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a copper with a foamy white head, and the aroma is of nutmeg, clove, and pumpkin. The tasting notes are of pumpkin, cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, and some bready malts. Not to shabby, do come nr pumpkin ale.
