Rating #1286 16.10.2014 - Bottle from CBI. . 5.5% Pours a golden amber, that produces a bubbly foam. Aroma is potent, lots of toasted pumpkin seed and cinnamon, caramel malt. Taste is malty, lots of sweet and grainy notes, and a heavy fleshy pumpkin flavour This is a pretty good seasonal, and despite the presence of fairly heavy flavours, it remains a balanced amber.

AgentAle (1312) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 12, 2015
Aroma is all spice, sweet malts, caramel, toffee and yeast. Taste is sweet malts and mostly cinnamon and pumpkin spice. Not overwhelming spiciness thankfully. Appearance is a clear amber with a medium pearl head that retains quite well.

sulawang (836) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 11, 2013
Visual: Simple label, unique ingredients for a pumpkin ale; namely the demerara and milk sugar. Pours cloudy copper brown with a small dissipating head, light lacing, ringed retention, several slow streams. Nose: sweet caramel malts on the nose with a hint of chocolate. (5)-aromatic strength Attack: sharp crispness, silky-fizzy mouthfeel Mid-palate: (6)-sweetness, (MAIN) caramel malts, milky, pumpkin Finish: brown sugar, traces of ginger, semi-sweet malt. Summary: Not a whole lot of detectable spice but a damn smooth brew with depth and balance. (Note: all numbers above are on a 10-point scale, with 1 being weak and 10 being the strongest)

Gerbeer (2681) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 20, 2012
650 ml bottle. Pours an orange/amber with little head. Not much to the nose: light malts, cardboard, hints of pumpkin pie but maybe only due to the label. Flavor is watery pumpkin pie. Not sure what the attraction is.Canít say this beer takes me anywhere.

RumRunner101 (918) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 12, 2012
Pours a light, clear orange. Aroma is on the sweet side with pumpkin, light spice. Medium bodied, creamy mouth feel. Slightly sweet, with the spices in the back ground. The finish is weirdly creamy, which really throws the whole beer off for me.

JHunter (676) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 12, 2012
Pours a clear orange amber colour with a medium size head which dissipates quickly. strong spice aroma nutmeg and cinnamon. The flavour is a bit of spice and caramel and a light pumpkin cream mouth feel overall enjoyable

650ml pours copper/orange with beige foamy head. Aroma is caramel and vanilla with a hint of pumpkin and background spice. Medium-bodied and leaning towards sweet. Creamy mouthfeel, long finish with some hoppy bitterness. Pumpkin flavour wasnít as prominent for me; this was more like mild winter ale.

WheatKing (1328) - Phnom Penh, CAMBODIA - SEP 28, 2012
Bomber. Drinking this now. Didnít care for it at first because of what seems like a hollow alcohol aroma but itís growing on me now.

The colour of a typical Vienna Lager with no lasting head, nose is alcohol and sweet pumpkin, mouth is lactose, pumpkin, caramel... quite creamy, which is the best quality about this for me. Not too sweet, which was my main worry when buying this, and even a bit of a bitter hop finish.

This is more a novelty than anything else for me, Iíd prefer to just eat a pumpkin pie and drink a well-crafted beer (like the Belgian Black, which has the potential to make this brewery famous), but yeah this was nice to drink, the flavour was interesting I guess.
