toffsbury (114) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 28, 2012
Aroma of wet malt, though the colour is a lovely dark amber. Flavour isn’t much to speak of. There’s vanilla and a bit of cinnamon burn in the end... Just OK.

pours cloudy dark amber with a decent white head, little retention and lacing. fruity - pumpkin, apricots, careful blend of spices, hint of acidity from wheat, earthiness, hint of sweetness, nuttiness. average to soft carbonation, medium body - oily, decent grassy-citrusy finish. decent spiced offering.

cfrancis (2461) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 19, 2012
Pours a clear orange amber with a small off white top. Aroma is cinamon, nutmeg and pumpkin. Taste is light spices including cinamon, nutmeg and cadamon. Not overpowering

Phatman (176) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 11, 2012
From bottle. Pours a deep amber/brown colour, opaque. Light whiff of pumpkin but definite impression of vegetable matter Flavor is blend of unsweetened pumpkin pie, some spiciness carried along by excessive carbonation. Managed the bottle but don’t think pumpkin beers are my thing...

Ontbeertaster (2339) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 8, 2012
had on tap as ’pumpkin ale’ assume this is the same thing as here, it was fairly light yellow, with a lot of cinnimon in the aroma and the flavour was also full of cinn and as well as nutmeg. it was a bit strong on the spices for me, overall, it was drinkable

I’ve had this brew a few times on tap but this is the first time I bought it in bottles to try a few in a row and really evaluate it. The verdict is in – this is a very decent pumpkin ale, probably the best in the local market. Pours a shimmering orange color with an off-white cap. Pungent aromas of pumpkin spice, grains and musty herbaceous pumpkin. Between the spices, hops and carbonation, the front side of the flavor profile is very sharp and peppery, this then mellows as the malt and pumpkin tastes arrive to give some fair balance and light complexity. The finish is sharp and drying with spice and hops providing a spicy bittering. A really great Canadian pumpkin ale

Light aroma of pumpkin seasonings and a nice orange colour, excellent and surprising pumpkin flavour of taste, with the seasonings to be there as well. Thin mouthfeel

yrstruly (333) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 4, 2012
Pours hazy amber with a fading off white head. The aroma is of pumpkin spices- cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves, as well as some spicy yeast. The taste is pretty dry and crisp up front, with a strong pumpkiny hop finish and some lasting warmth on the palate.

Lubiere (10285) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 2, 2012
A lightly hazed amber with a thin creamy off white head. In aroma, a cloying mix of butterscotch and pie spices, with ginger cloves and some spoiled meat notes. In mouth, a light watery spiced beer with ginger and cinnamon hearts, boring and plain. On tap at Ottawa location, Sept 26 2012.

italarican (1484) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - SEP 29, 2012
On tap at Pub Italia hanging out with the residents. Aroma has some candy corn and pumpkin. Some legit vegetal pumpkin flavor, slight candy corn, surprisingly bitter hops, and overpowering ginger spiciness. This ginger like spice really gets in the way of an otherwise solid beer.
