4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very strong scent immediately upon opening. Love the bottle. Itís not often that you get a re-sealable bottle. Slightly hazy brown orange pour. Lots of pumpkin and spice in that nose. Cinnamon, clove. Yeasty slightly bready mouth. Reminds me of Remark Farms Pumpkin Spice Loaf. Lots of spice. Very easy to drink. Low carbonation. So far the best Pumpkin beer Iíve had. Mixes the sweetness perfectly. Really enjoying this one and glad it comes in a 1 liter. Wonít need to re-seal that bottle tonight.

Great chewy fleshy vegetable aroma, good balance between cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. Clear dark copper, creamy dense pale tan head. Instant gratification here. Warm brown sugar sweetness up front, the spice blend dances about and cuts through nicely, the anise is a nice touch. Slowly the tannic vegetable creeps out in the finish with a smoky edge. Only later on does the alcohol start to show itself.

Amber orange, lots of spices and pumpkin, and high in alcohol...
my favorite pumpkin offering this past season. Might frighten away the more timid Lagerboys!

1L bottle from LCBO. Pours a gorgeous clear deep copper, with a thin head. Rich pumpkin and spice aroma. Taste is smooth, with pumpkin and spice, with a slight alcohol finish. Smooth creamy mouthfeel with light carbonation. A great pumpkin ale.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
1L swingtop bottle. Pours hazy dark orange with a medium beige head with decent retention. Aroma is full of pumpkin pie spices along with some authentic pumpkin; also a bit perfumy. Taste is sweet and savory; finishes dry. Creamy mouthfeel; medium to full body. Great pumpkin beer; maybe I can get it again for Halloween.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rich brown tinged orange amber apportioned with a lush, beige head. Beatific, piquant roast pulped pumpkin nose pricked with cinnamon, light cloviness, brown sugar, and maltiness. I am floored by how well balanced this brews and the incredible harmonizing aspect of all the disparate spices and malts. Well-balanced cinnamon malted body, full or roast pumpking, tinged with subtle clove and star anise. Wonderful complexity of malts and spices dances across the palate. Medium to full-bodied. Well developed malt backbone serves as an adept springboard for the natural pumpkin flavor. A top-notch pumpkin beer and a true standard-bearer for the style.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy copper colour with big off white head that amounts to an average ring around the glass. Aromas of nutmeg, all spice, cinnamon, basically a good pumpkin pie. Flavour is basically a smooth pumpkin pie, impressive for an 8 percent abv beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear medium brown pour, beige head. Malty toffee aroma, nutmeg and clove pie spice and anise. Sweet toffee body, kind of brown ale-ish, lots of pumpkin and pie spice as it finishes out, pleasant touch of anise. Not very boozy despite the alcohol content, nice warming finish. Very nice, one of the better beers Iíve had from Howe Sound.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a deep amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma consists of cinnamon and cloves are quite dominant with light pumpkin and caramelized notes. Taste is a solid mix between some cinnamon and cloves notes with some good notes of pumpkin and caramelized malt. Body is full with good carbonation with no apparent alcohol. Solid interpretation of the style and somewhat reminiscent of Pumpking with less aggressive spicing.
