Bottle. Hazy golden-orange pour. Mild malt and hops, with spices and nutmeg that ultimately define the beer. Nothing too extraordinary, but does it’s job fairly well, a nice casual beer. Worked nicely on Thanksgiving too!

650 ml bottle from brewery. Pours a very slightly cloudy orange-gold with modest-sized white head. Aroma has lots of spice, especially nutmeg and allspice, and pumpkin. Taste is similarly full of spices, with a nice pumpkin presence and a little bitterness in the finish. A solid pumpkin beer.

Bottle. Pale orange pour with thin white head. Good spicy aroma, cloves, cinnamon and definite pumpkin aromas. Taste is rather mild, still some candycane, spice and a very earthy kind of bitter finale. Watery mouthfeel.

From notes. Amber pour, off white carbonation. Lots of pumpkin with a mild dose of spices- nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice- cereal grains in the background. Very easy to drink. Medium body, balanced. Decent pumpkin ale.

65 cl bottle, Mulmur, ON, Canada. Deep golden colour, frothy thick head. Heavy clove aroma, cinnamon and nutmeg coming through. Sharp spice on the tongue that turns mellow, finishes sharp again. More watery than expected but drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A - Clear light amber/gold body with a nice fluffy light-tan head. Nice head retention and impressive lacing. The aroma is not a very strong one overall. It’s floral, with a nice pumpkin base, a fair amount of spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, clove) and some caramel notes. The taste starts out with very pronounced pumpkin, followed by a moderate spiciness and a touch of caramel. Some floral hop bitterness was also present. The taste finished in a fair amount of spice notes, as well as some bitterness and light sweetness. The pumpkin taste gets stronger as the beer warms up. Overall, a good example of the style, and quite a tasty one, with just enough pumpkin and spices.
