3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark copper with a trace of a head. Not much aroma. The spicy pumpkin really starts to come through in the finish. Different, but not bad.

Dark orange color, almost no foam. Smell of cinnamon, bubble gum, nutmeg and coke. Very spicy taste with a shy malt in the end. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle courtesy of Mr.V: Poured a clear light brown color ale with a medium foamy head with average retention. Aroma of canella and nutmeg and nutmeg is quite intense. Taste is also dominated by some canella and nutmeg as well as some light cloves notes (I could not notice any ginger even thought label mention it as one ingredient). Body is about average with some average carbonation. I don’t remember the previous version that was brewed years ago to contain that much spices but this was quite enjoyable nonetheless.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear brown / ruby poor with a thin off-white head. Aromas of pumpkin pie, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, candy apple and wood mulch. Definite taste of pumpkin pie but with alot less sweet. Very nice balance and just enough spices. Lightly effervescent. Caramel malts, nutmeg, cloves completes the flavors.

July 2003. Orangey copper with a pumpkin pie aroma. Leans more towards the pumpkin pie spices than pumpkin itself. Very enjoyable. Will try it again. 6/3/6/3/14 - 3.2

Malty and spicey, ruby, slim head. Seems to have little pumpkin flavour. Nice mouthfeel from the spices, fair.

So it does smell like pumpkin. Is that bad or good? Look seemed to be a bit wash out. Very average quality yet very different
