3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at our LCBO pumpkin ale tasting- 6 oz sample- Pours a deep and dark amber/copper with a red hue. The head was initially frothy, but it quickly went down to a thin ring. Quite spicy on the nose, nutmeg, cinnamon,a bit of cardamon, with lots of bready malts, and a bit of pumpkin. The flavour profile is sweet bready malts,caramel, some spices including nutmeg and cardamon. This pumpkin ale finishes out a bit thin and watery, but with a nice bitterness as well. Overall, the aroma is much more interesting when compared to the flavour. Still a nice treat.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aromas of cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, and some nutmeg, it really smells like i just stuck my nose in a can of pumpkin pie mix. Flavor is a little more subtle, and delicate, just traces of those previous spices, a touch of malt in the end. A nice offering, but a little thin in the flavor category.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
341 ml bottle - pours a gorgeous mahogany copper with a slightly fizzy that vanishes rather quickly. Aroma very nice - the ginger comes through, and the cinnamon as well. Very pumpkin-y, but unique too. Flavour quite sweet, cinnamon upfront then blending with the other spices. Nice and full in the mouth. Maybe a bit too sweet. Beautiful beer for autumn.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Pour is super fizzy with a cola like head. Dark orange. Aroma has a good bit of pumpkin and pie crust, though not too spicy. Mellow flavor, a bit spritzy but thin bodied, light pumpkin sweetness in the finish. Has a bit of slate flavor to it, but overall not too bad. Messy, vegetal finish. Bearable.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
pours ruby brown with a skin of white. strong clove nose. cinnamon is apparent also with a sweetness. tastes better than walt looksbut not as good as a sweaty embrace from lump. allspice or nutmeg is really strong at first with a minty clove finish. nice caramel slightly wheaty backbone flavor i’d love to try this beer without the spice, but a bit more ascertive hop. could be a good session. a nice spice beer that i’d happily drink again. thanks, paul.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
341 ml bottle, Medium head with a brown color. Spicy and sweet (cinnamon),tho the pumpkin wasn’t present enough to satify my need for a pumpin beer. Still, it goes down easy. Don’t drink too cold.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Darker brown with a orange tinge. Decent sized faint tan head. Aroma is strong of gingerbread, nutmeg cinnamon, clove and allspice. Flavour is rich with a pumpkin pie taste with the ginger, clove and nutmeg very noticeable. One of the richer, well balanced pumpkin ales.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bouteille brune de 341 ml. Arômes puissants d’épices (cannelle, muscade, girofle et gingembre). Elle sent vraiment la tarte à la citrouille. Robe rousse, peu d’effervescence. Épicée en bouche, la base maltée est cependant relativement faible. Très peu d’arrière-goût. De mémoire, cette bière était meilleure lorsque très récemment brassée.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Definitely one of the better pumpkin beers I’ve had. Very subtly spiced, but the nutmeg and cinnamon hints are there. Smooth drinking, smells great! Nice little pumpkin kick as well.
