Lubiere (9789) - 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.

Sammy (8406) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 18, 2009
On-tap at the brewpub. Pours a thick looking orange, unfortunate that it was so freezing cold. The aroma is a bit of C-hop, but mostly ginger to me. Average mouthfeel, and above-average carbonation. Not as good when it warmed, a bit of pumpkin, corriander and a tad of white pepper, nutmeg. Not that drinkable. So-so for its style.

JoeMcPhee (8314) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 27, 2011
Clear amber- gold with a thick, frothy off-white head. Good-looking beer. The aroma is quite spicy with a warming mixture of allspice and nutmeg. Medium-bodied with a little bit of light sweetness. There is a little bit of ginger there as well. A bit of malt sweetness but the beer isn’t cloying at all. Ginger flavour is more apparent than it is in the aroma. A little bit of sweetness toward the finish. A pretty solid pumpkin beer - or at least pumpkin spice beer - I don’t get a ton of gourd in the flavour.

jercraigs (7638) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 15, 2009
2009-10-13. Orange amber body with a modest beige head. 3+ Flavour is pleasant, mild sweet malt base, spices. Average plus bodied palate is nice but lightly carbonated. Would like just a bit more full bodied for my own tastes. 3+ Spices get a touch bitter at times, grows sharp briefly. Aroma is mild but pleasant, modest spice and muted malt. Pretty decent overall. On tap at the brewpub

DuffMan (6549) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 14, 2013
Bottle (actually 3 bottles split 6 ways), the third in our lineup of beers for our little Falll Beer Fest. Medium orange, medium off white head. This beer has a relatively mild profile, with moderate pumpkin character and low spice. Not bad, but not a stand out. Better than the Oktoberfest brew in the same package.

HogTownHarry (6063) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 27, 2009
Draught. At the brewpub. Clear deep amber pour with a decent tan head (3+). Pungent fall/pumpkin pie spice aroma - even to graham crumbs and actual vegetal pumpkin. The taste is very pungent - dry spice, not so much real pumpkin flavour, mostly the spice - very peppery and gingery. Light mouthfeel, a bit acidic/astringent from the dry spice, but the filtering took a lot of the punch from this one, as the flavour slips away very quickly. Ultimately disappointing - give me Grand River, Weyerbacher or Southern Tier ANY day over this.

blankboy (5979) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 9, 2009
Draught at the brewpub. Pours a nice, clear amber-orange with a small lasting creamy off-white head. Aroma of pumpkin, spices and caramel malt. Slightly watery flavour follows the aroma but is a tad muted along with some mild vegetal notes. Average bodied. A good beer, just a bit dull, with more flavour this could be a knockout.

mabel (5414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 1, 2009
[2530-20091013] Tap. A little grainy spice pumpkin fruit aroma, more as it warms. Clear, brown orange body with a medium-lasting creamy white head. Lovely pumpkin pie crust and allspice, a little gingery pepper and hints of fruits. Medium body. Lovely brew, quite surprising.

presario (4596) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 27, 2012
Bottle. Copper with a light head and big pumpkin and spice aroma. Smells like spice and roast pumpkin not pumpkin pie which is good. A little thin in body and not enough malt to support the heavy dark spice load.

czar (4153) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 22, 2012
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.
