In our pursuit to bring you the most flavourful and unique beers possible, we are proud to release this tasty autumn ale. Handcrafted with an assortment of specialty malts and hops, we added a generous amount of pumpkin directly into the brew. Combine this with hints of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and allspice, and you’ve got a beer that you won’t soon forget. Rich, satisfying and slightly spicy, our seasonal ale goes perfectly with your favourite dessert or traditional feast. But like fall, Pumpkin Ale comes but once a year!

650 mL bottle. Pours a light orange with a frothy head. Aroma is mostly nutmeg and pumpkin. Dry and light bodied with medium high carbonation. Seemingly thin with alternating vegetable and spice notes with a rather hoppy finish. Not bad, but not to my taste.

pours unclear golden with a nice white head, decent retention and lacing. fruity and almost belgian fruity malts, tender, ripened and juicy gourds and squashes, some oranges, light pine notes, nice blend of spices - carefully selected and thankfully shy, hint of sweetness. average to soft carbonation, light to medium body - oily, nice citrusy, lightly piney finish. probably the most balanced pumpkin ale i’ve tasted so far. enjoyed it - surprisingly.

reggiedunlop (3500) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Pours a clear orange color with a medium off white head. Aroma has seasonal spices. Flavor has nice layers of spice, doughy malt...graham, and pumpkin...well done! Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is spicy and bitters slightly. Nice pumpkin beer!

Aroma is of pumpkin, cinnamon, ginger and corn (??). The taste is slightly malty, with some squash, a moderate hop finish and thin body. The balance is toward the hops and not really my thing.

Bouteille 750 ml. 5.5%. Couleur ambrée assez pâle, mousse blanche. Arôme de gingembre et épices. En bouche, malt, épices mais moins que certaines bières la citrouille. Muscade, un peu de cannelle. Finale malt et fin d’épices. Bel équilibre.

On tap at Stout Irish Pub. Slight pumpkin aromas and flavours. Not as pumpkiny as it could be.

Blonde-ambrée, un généreux col mousseux la surmonte, tout en décorant le verre d’une dentelle tenace. Comme la deScription le suggère, oui, au nez c’est épicé, j’y perçois de la cannelle, de la muscade et du clou de girofle, parsemé d’arômes sucrés. C’est étrange en bouche. Ça goûte un genre de ragoût. Il y a, c’est certain, des saveurs de légumes, mais aussi d’épices, mais pas les mêmes que dans les odeurs. Quelque chose qui me rappelle les "chips barbecue" C’est la courge que je goûte plus que la citrouille. Même si c’est plutôt hors norme, c’est buvable. (400-151012)

Bomber from the lcbo in Niagara on the Lake, America’s Hat. Pours a golden amber caped by a silkey off white head with maximum amount or retention. Gobs of bubbling carbonation gives it staying power. Nose has an inviting mix of cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. Taste is a powerful dose of cinnamon upfront followed by nutmeg. The bottles claims are "generous amount of pumpkin." I just don’t see any pumpkin at all. Sweetness comes in afterward from pale and caramel malt. Medium body.

650mL bottle from LCBO. Pours with a minimal head. Aroma of nutmeg. Palate is pumpkin and spices. Long bitter finish. Not a bad pumpkin beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
