3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
1L bottle from the LCBO. Pours a brown/orange colour with a lot of off-white head that dissipates quickly. Smell is kind of sweet like squash, but has some pumpkin pie hints like cinnamon and cloves. Palate is kind of rough with strong carbonation with big bubbles and a strong alcohol presense, body is medium however. Taste is a bit bitter at first, almost hoppy, then I get a lot of those nice pumpkin spices, before getting some more bitter and a strong alcohol presence. Aftertaste is half alcohol half bitter. Not a bad pumpkin ale.

Giant re-sealable bottle. Deep orange with thick, foamy head. Smells like pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, pine and a subtle hint of black licorice. Taste is big, bold and bitter at the end. Lots of alcohol bite -- you know this is a strong beer. Lively carbonation, crisp finish. More than just a novelty beer. Very enjoyable.

Clear orange copper pour with large off white head. Aroma of pumpkins, cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg. Taste of pumpkin, cinnamon, cloves, caramel and slight hoppy dry finish. Perfect carbonation, but noticeable alcohol on the finish. Very good pumpkin beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a amber/dark orange color with a thick off white head that leaves good lacing. Smells of cinnamon and nutmeg,cloves and pumpkin. Tastes of all the same things I mentioned above with added anise. The cinnamon and nutmeg rule the taste mostly though. Mouthfeel is medium with a semi dry finish. This is a pretty solid pumpkin ale overall. Good use of ingredients.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a liter sized bottle bought at a private cold locker in my neighborhood. Lots of carbonation, and color is a dark amber. Sweet and herbal. A touch more flavorful than the Granville Island Pumpkin Ale, sampled a few minutes earlier. The pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg flavors are backed up by some malts.
The perfect beer for a late afternoon in the fall.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark orange amber with two fingers of white head. Slightly
spiced nose with a bit of cinnamon and allspice. The pumpkin is there on the palate, but is outshone a bit by the hops, creating a slightly bitter and awkward flavor. The finish is clipped, disappointing for a beer with Imperial on the label.

pours a clear copper-orange with a large white head, and some lacing.
smell is of spice, pumpkin, and malt.
taste is of spice, pumpkin, some caramel, malty, flavor grows on you over time (gets better as it warms). ends a little dry and definite pumpkin... in fact a little to much.
