3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle:   Amber, on the darker side, moderate foamy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Muted spicy nose, a touch of carob or bakers chocolate.   Cocoa and chocolate right up front, with very little spices in the background.   Comes across as some sort of Cocoa beer as the normal Pumpkin stuff is very muted.   Smooth, but body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Cocoa and carob on the finish.   Not bad, but not so much of a Pumpkin Ale me thinks.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Drank from Bottle
Smells very strong of pumpkin and spices.
Taste is well balanced. Not too much pumpkin flavour. ANd the pumpkin tastes real, not artificial.
Good amount of carbonation. Not a lot of aftertaste.
Overall I can say i was impressed with this beer. Having sampled many Pumpkin beers, I can say that this is the best. Good flavour with everything in balance. I would not purchase for myself, but the wife sure does enjoy.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Amber orange, fast fading head. Pumpkin pie spices in nose in palate. Palate is very thin and quite phenolic (band aids). Why bother ?

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Aroma of mild whisky, coca cola plus cinamon, a bit ginger and not so much pumpkin as I expected. The taste mirrors the aroma plus a lot of malt, whisky pudding, alcohol. Something like whisky coke. Refreshing. Dry malty finish. Good, but a in a blind test I would not guess this as a pumpkin ale.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle into English pint. Pours a slightly opaque golden orange with quickly dissipating foamy white head. Spicy nose with nutmeg and pumpkin pie notes. Similar pie sweetness flavour-wise, but kinda muted. Alright, but better available in town.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fat @ Brewpub, Toronto. Klar mörk guldfärgad med ett något smutsat skum. Dofter och smaker av kryddnejlika, ingefära, karamell och vanilj. Det är jul så det står härliga till. Medelbeska. Mjuk munkänsla.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at St Augustine’s, pours a clear dark orange with a small beige head. Nose brings out lots of pumpkin spices, especially cinnamon. Flavour is massively spicy, with loads of cinnamon upfront, followed by nutmeg and pumpkin purée. Pretty standard pumpkin ale, with a light body and not a whole lot going on. Meh.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pint poured at real sports in Toronto. Pours Amber with minimal head. Smells like cinnamon and nutmeg. Tastes like most pumpkin ales; heavy on spices. Drinkable. Not spectacular

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at the Brewpub. Near clear dark amber with a brief off-white head. The nose is warming pumpkin and indistinct spices, same applies to flavour. Not really enjoying this. Lightish body, average carbonation. Dryish. Metallic. The unsatisfying brief finish is so similar to other sub-par pumpkin ales.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 8/19/2015. Pours slightly hazy deep orange/copper color with a 2 finger dense and rocky light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, vanilla, brown sugar, caramel, wheat, gingerbread, light chocolate, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great complexity and balance of pumpkin, spices, and dark/bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, vanilla, brown sugar, caramel, wheat, gingerbread, light chocolate, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Minimal herbal/spice bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, vanilla, caramel, brown sugar, gingerbread, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice robustness, complexity, and balance of pumpkin, spices, and dark/bready malt flavors; with no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, fairly creamy/bready, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish as expected of 5%. Overall this is a very nice session pumpkin wheat ale style. All around good robustness, complexity, and balance of pumpkin, spices, and dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
