(11.5oz bottle thanks to blutt59) Pours clear orange with nice bubbles. Nose of pumpkin mash, cinnamon, nutmeg. Taste of sweet pumpkin, vanilla bean, nutmeg with a lightly spicy finish. Really well done pumpkin ale I thought.

Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a clear orange-brown color with a white head. The aroma is nutmeg and pumpkin. The flavor is basic pumpkin pie spices with some allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, caramel malt and pumpkin notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A pretty basic pumpkin ale but quite enjoyable.

Bottle thanks to blutt59. Pours with a large off-white head and a hazy brown body. Aroma of light cinnamon, spice, gingerbread and smoke. Taste is exactly light Dr. Pepper. A bit of a grainy-ness. Light spice. Bubbly.

12oz bottle. even though itís the beginning of spring i decided to pay homage one last time to the winter that was. clear reddish/orange under a medium sized white head. floral, cinnamon, nutmeg, and of course pumpkin in aroma. not the flavor-full beer the aroma suggests. not cloyingly sweet. flavors of apples, cinnamon, a faint pumpkin and nutmeg. gelatinous body and light.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - MAR 4, 2010
Bottle: Rusty copper pour with good clarity and an off white film of head. Sweet aroma- some mild vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon and evident clove. Slick light body. Sweet with lots of vanilla and sugary maltose. Some spice is there but itís not enough to dry it out or balance it.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 23, 2010
Bottle shared by wickedpete on 4/5/09: Pours a transparent bright copper amber with a stringy-lacing off-white head. Aroma of sweet caramel malt with some cinnamon and nutmeg notes. Starts with average fullness and doughy sweet pumpkin and toffee flavor with some nise anise and cinnamon balance before a drier toasty finish. An enjoyable pumpkin beer.

jimmay (807) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 22, 2010
341ml bottle. Pours deep copper in colour, decent, aromatic head. Aroma and taste are pretty big, very sweet, like candy, and tonnes of pumpkin spices. Good pumkin ale!

341mL bottle from matt7215, thanks Matt. Iíve been wanting to try this one for a while but since the LCBO completely sucks at everything ever, itís only ever shown up for 5 minutes in my area following its release. Anyways, pours a dark amber with a quickly dissipating beige head. The aroma is very spice-forward, dry cinnamon and cardamon, ginger, clove big time, sweet chrystal malts. Flavour is dominated by the same spices, huge clove presence and some okay sweet malts in the finish to almost make your palate feel less dry. Mouth-feel is kind of uncomfortably dry. Some fruity elements too that I havenít come across before in a pumpkin ale, melons, and some straight up roasted pumpkin. Somehow the whole picture isnít as good as those individual elements though as I find myself less impressed than Iíve been with other pumkin ales. Maybe it has to be October to truly appreciate the style but whatever. This is also my 300th Canadian beer rating so I guess thatís kind of cool.

Frothmeister (559) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 24, 2010
341ml bottle. Pours a clear, red brown colour. Small off white head that diminished quickly. Aromas of honey, caramel, vanilla, cinnamon chewing gum. The taste is baking spices, a little bread, minimal sweetness with a touch of bitter.
