Each year as the leaves fall and the north wind blows, St-Ambroise Pumpkin Ale make its return – a magical potion that casts a potent spell with its well-crafted blend of blond and caramelized malts, gentle hop, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves and pumpkin. Its delicate malty character and hint of sweetness will quench any creature looking for easy-drinking refreshment.

AKA McAuslan Spiced Pumpkin for a time.

Spice and subtle pumpkin dominate this beer, with a smooth finish highlighted with ginger and nutmeg. Refreshing and a brilliant seasonal beer. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

This beer took me by surprise! I’m usually not much of a Pumpkin beer drinker but it was all my friend had at the time. Glad he didn’t have anything else! Amber in color, malt forward, smooth body. Spice are present but not overwhelming. Delicious Pumpkin beer for a non-pumpkin beer drinker!

La grande bière à la citrouille is one of the most aromatic beers made, serve in a goblet and give it time to open up. Pours a beautiful clear red-orange, with small-moderate head that quickly reduces to thin surface lace. Aroma of a holiday kitchen: pumpkin and dark fruits, spices, vanilla. Prominent spicy pumpkin on the tongue with brown sugar note, but not overly sweet. Smooth, light and fizzy, with restrained dry but not harsh finish. Festive enough for celebrations, but 5 percent ABV makes it sessionable throughout the season.

Bottle from LCBO (4-pack). Pours a clear dark amber. Aroma of pumpkin and pleasant spices. The taste is perfect pumpkin ale - great blend of pumpkin, spices, and sweet malt. Smooth and creamy on the tongue. Probably the best pumpkin ale I’ve had.

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2012 Absoulutly delicious smelling aroma, pure pumpkin pie. sweet carmelly bready perfectly spiced aroma. A great smell you would want coming out of your kitchen or a bakery. Very clear red copper color with mild head . Nice smooth slick mouth feel then the great taste kicks in with a great malt/pumpkin/spice taste even bready and somewhat creamy in the finish leaving you with a little sweet and spice. Masterfully balanced and complex with everything so balanced and nothing off putting.Ive still seen some of these on the shelf im going to have to get more. 2012 bottle, nice roasted carmelized pumpkin aroma with very pleasant fresh spice aroma.Toasty caremlized malty pumpkin with a nice tounge stinging finish with complex smooth fresh spices. This deserves "great" in its name.

I really don’t expect too much from my pumpkin ales. I’d rather not be beat over the head with spice or alcohol so this beer works for me in a kind way. It’s very repeatable and and easy go to holiday brew.
