3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: Strong, spicy aroma. Iím getting hints of black pepper, but also some yeasty earth aromas. There might be some toasted sugar aromas in there, too.
Appearance: Clear dark amber with minimal head.
Taste: While itís not in your face with the spices, they are a bit heavy handed and overpower the pumpkin itself. Still, that flavor is still there, so itís not completely unbalanced.
Palate: Light body, creamy texture, average carbonation, long finish.
Overall: Iím not unimpressed or disappointed, but Iím not blown away either.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Production date July 6, 2013.
A clear mahogany pour with +3 fingers of foam, Iíll check on the lacing later. ;^) Very good lacing, I find.
The smell is pretty darned good for a pumpkin ale since it smells like pumpkin and the spices. That was what I garnered from the original whiff or 2. Now that itís been sitting in my glass for a while, the nose becomes somewhat weaker.
The taste has *some* good pumpkin ale character to it but thereís a slight sourness to it that I donít think was meant to be there. Now, it is also in the smell. Okay, maybe this brew doesnít age too gracefully as itís been 3 months since being bottled. Oh well, Iím glad itís only a 4 pack.
Rather thin bodied with lightish carbonation, the mouthfeel isnít the best.
Overall, a rather big disappointment for my first try from the brewery.

330 ml bottle from the LCBO. Was slightly boozy with only slight hints of pumpkin. Not a great attempt at a pumpkin beer, in my opinion.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Fully diminishing head. Lacing held up to the end. A dark amber in the glass. Bought in a "Discovery Pack" that came with a St-Ambroise/McAuslan glass. The glass is beautiful and feels great in the hand. The beer is effervescent to drink. Aroma is pumpkin spice. Malty, yet savory flavour. The interesting thing is the aroma never dulls. This is easy to drink. Even though itís savory, I enjoyed on itís own as desert. Itís liquid pumpkin pie. Terrific.

Bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a darker mahogany with a beige froth of foam. The aroma is pumpkin spices and a bready crusty presence. Thereís also a nice fruity sweetness coming through on the verge of tartness. Tastes spice forward with a touch of sweetness and tartness throughout.
