12oz bottle poured into snifter. This is one fantastic pumpkin beer. The last few pumpkin beers Iíve had sort of let me down but this one was killer. Had a nice aroma of pumpkin pie mixed with banana bread and spice. The flavor is very creamy mixed a slight pumpkin cinnamon banana mixture. Outstanding!!

On draft at Coles, Buffalo. Dark orange with a small white head. Aroma: Wow, big pumpkin spice aroma, simply marvellous. Flavour: Big pumpkin flavour, cinnamon, spice, I can just imagine enjoying this with a nice slice of pumpkin pie. Very enjoyable.

Thanks to Darkelf for sharing this one. Pours with an orange amber body topped by a thin to medium thick head with a good amount of lacing. It smells and tastes like pumpkin pie...nuff said. Medium bodied and smooth with a touch of dryness.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pretty copper color with a small white head. Aroma of pumpkin, nutmeg, vanilla, and sweet caramel. Flavor was right in keeping with the aroma: spicy pumpkin pie, sweet caramel malt, and vanilla. This is my first pumpkin ale and it was everything I expected a spiced pumpkin ale would taste like. Very nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Body is an autumnal mix of orange and brown and supports a medium sized tan head. Aromas are pie spices and pumpkin (maybe a bit of dishsoap, too). Flavor starts off a little malty and then heads into a very spicy finish. Cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg mingle with the pumpkin flavoring and create a fairly nice aftertaste. Every now and then it seems a little watery and every now and then there is a little bit of a soapy aftertaste... apart from these two minor snags it is an interesting and well done pumpkin beer.

Pretty dense off-white head of fine bubbles. Lots of gingerbread and nutmeg in the aroma. Color is a slightly hazy copper. Soft malty mouthfeel with a bit of dry spices and a tad of chalkyness. Some vegetal flavors and spices. An ok spiced ale.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear copper color with little head. Aroma and flavor chock full of spices. Ginger is dominant but also getting some nutmeg and cinnamon. Almost no pumpkin flavor though. I kind of like this beer. Will agree with Pailhead there is a certain sourness detectable. Still enjoyed it nonetheless.

Attractive amber pour with fluffy white head. Nose is prominent pumpkin pie spice (nutmeg, cinnamon, clove) and lightly roasted malt. The flavors are similarly pumpkin pie spice and sweet, sugary barley malt. Ok
