75 cl bottle, Calgary, AB, Canada via coop. Hazy apricot colour. Butterscotch sweet aroma, some clove and fennel. Sweet, though balanced, alcohol helping to flatten the seasonal flavours. Long spice hop finish.

Tap at the Jeffrey. Pours orange with no head. Nose is rich pumpkin pie filling and spice. Tastes of plenty of pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, touch of earth, and malt. Almost some fruity koolaid on finish. Semi-sweet and a fulfilling pumpkin ale.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pint purchased at the brewery. Dark orangey brown with minimal white head. Hint of pumpkin and cinnamon I think. Nice and chill on the first sip the bitterness followed by flavors of cinnamon and something I can’t put my finger on, although it is interesting. It doesn’t have too much of a palate, but I do feel the cinnamon when it goes down the throat.

Reddish amber color, moderate head, decent lace/retention. Aroma is pumpkin, cinnamon, clove, caramel, bread. Not getting any of the licorice type flavors from the anise. Medium bodied, pretty straightforward but good.

Hazy orangey colour. Lots of pumpkin in the aroma and a little bit of nutmeg...pretty appetizing. Sweet, lots of pumpkin, with a hint of cinnamon, a fairly strong, sweet, malt character and some gingerbready character. Almost a bit chocolatey character, Good balance.

Sigh…….. yet another short distracted review due to being at a party. I normally really dislike this style of brew, the pumpkin beers do nothing for me but this one I can drink. Dark copper body with a ok crown, gets extra points for the flip top lid. Body is light and easy to drink. Spices are kept under control so it not like drinking a candle shop. A lot lighter then I was expecting given the higher ABV. Maybe that’s why this is working for me the higher ABV. No fake over the top flavours here…………. That’s a good thing. Just a light pumpkin and spice build onto a solid easy drinking beer.

Huge bottle from Brian. Thanks!
A: Brackish read with an off-white head.
N: Pumpkin, cinnamon, all-spice and some hops. Not an overly strong flavor, not particularly holiday.
T: Lightly sweet with some spice. Again. light on flavor.
M: Medium body - a touch watered down.
O: Not much to say about this one. It’s an average beer; not good, not bad.
