3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Enjoyed at the brewpub. Poured a deep amber colour with a creamy beige head, good retention and creamy lacing. Cinnamon nose with mild pumpkin puree. Caramel malts and hints of apples. Spices in the mouth with a mix of cinnamon and nutmeg. Light sweetness from the malt gives out notes of pumpkin and honey. Medium-heavy bodied with a wet mouthfeel and a little stickiness. Was happy to try this lighter version of their stronger bottled one. As good and a well-spiced pumpkin ale. Would have again.

La Scie Trouillarde a 5% pumpkin beer which pours a glowing amber with very impressive lacing. It was very smooth bodied and had a silky mouthfeel. The taste was a delicious nutty caramel & pumpkin flesh with light bready malts. People looking for a US style spice bomb would be disappointed but this is the kind of pumpkin beer I prefer.

Couleur ambrée avec un col respectable. Nez de caramel et d’épices comme la canelle et les clous de giroffle. En bouche c’est bien balancé le caramel se marie bien au épices d’halloween. Une belle découverte.

Cask Days 2013. Deep amber pour with a thin white head. The nose is spicy and earthy. Nicely pumpkiny with some nice spiciness and a bit of light fruit. A touch of astringency with some fairly sweet spiciness. Okay.

A decent pumpkin among a season full of average pumpkin beers. Pours orange with decent head and lacing. Tastes like gourd with some clove. Soft carbonation, light, sweet finish. Tap at brewpub.

Tried on tap at BdT. Surprised to find this still on tap but happy to try it. Nice amber with an off white head. Some nutmeg, pumpkin, caramel, cloves, decent maltiness; mild body and carbonation, somewhat sweet with lots of spice. Wouldn’t more then a 12oz pour but it was nice.

Pours a hazy auburn hue with a thin, foamy, off-white head. Aroma is mostly caramel malts and a light floral honey character, earthy spices linger in the background and could use more representation. In the mouth, timid spices and mild vegetal pumpkin notes vie for attention against a toffee/caramel malt backdrop. Finishes with a nice warming on the back of the throat and a touch of bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel, carbonation on the low side, though appropriate for the style. Overall, this is a highly drinkable and balanced brew, just a little disappointing in that it falls short of the usual boldness typified by BDT.
