DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 8, 2009
11.5oz bottle pours clear filtered copper with a small white head with poor retention. Aroma is like every other pumpkin beer known to man. Okay slightly better maybe but not really. Flavor is cinnamon and mild maltiness though the spice level is quite low. Super clean. This is very drinkable. Not super good in the pumpkin department or the uniqueness. No more pumpkin beers please unless youíre going to offer something different.

341 ml bottle courtesy of a trtade with Boutip. Pours a mostly clear coppery orange with a large linen white head that lingered until mid-glass and left a few large patches of foam. Pleasant aroma of pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg. The flavor is pumpkin, wax beans, cinnamon and nutmeg and tastes a bit watered down. Light bodied. An ok pumpkin beer.

From a friend at the LCBO. thanks buddy. I donít really like pumpkins, so i figured I would not be a huge fan of pumpkin beer, I had southern tier pumpking a couple days ago and it wasnít bad, iím sure for someone who likes pumpkins itís probably fín amazing, this beer I would say isnít as good as that, but I am enjoying it more because the pumpkin flavour isnít so in your face. Pours an amber colour with a head which dissolves to pretty much nothing. The aroma is big and spicey, pumpkin pie, the pumpkin takes a back seat to the smells of cinnamon, and licorice, I swear to god I smells something else though, like coca cola or something, but itís good. The flavour is good, pumpkin pie, cinnamon, but ends on a strange coca cola note, strange, but it works. The weight is a little light, compared to southern tiers version, which is one thing that I preferred by them, a little higher of an abv might have help kicked this up a notch, but i still really enjoyed this brew.

Great smell, smelt like a pumpkin pie (no surprise). Amber colour, silky smooth with some nice lacing. A little heavy on the pumpkin flavour, but not at all bad. I had the Great Lakes Pumpkin Ale earlier this week and it was similar only the smell was great but there was little discernable pumpkin flavour.

Pretty spicy aroma with more subtle pumpkin notes. Very lightly sweet. A bit more pumpkin in the flavor. Nice. Like a nice cooked pumpkin dish more than a pumpkin pie.

cfrancis (3139) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 27, 2009
This is the best pumpkin beer that Iíve ever had. Aroma is cinnamon and clove. I love the smell of cinnamon. Initial taste is crisp with a smooth texture. Most of the flavours come out in the aftertaste. Pumpkin spice, cinnamon and clove become very prominent and give a great mouthfeel. Great beer, canít wait till next year!

Bottle. Poured clear dark orange color with an average off-white frothy head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Solid spicy pumpkin pie aroma. Moderate body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium pumpkin spicy sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid seasonal beer.
