Slight cinnamon taste. Very nice. Kind of like a pumpkin and cinnamon hinted Newcastle Brown. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I really liked this! On tap from the brewery. Good spice depth, lots of pumpkin flavor. Also some molasses. Great stuff!

[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.

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

Pours a dark amber with a sticky white head. The nose is pumpkin and mild spices but quite strong overall with toffee and nutty notes. Just a tinge of sweetness with pumpkin flavour as well as a mild clove and nutmeg spice. Really enjoyable beer on its own or with spicy dish.

On tap at the brewpub - came a mostly clear foxy amber with a small white head that had clearly diminished in the two minutes between pouring and serving. Left some nice lace. Enticing aroma of soft spices, cinnamon and clove stood out, alongside sweet malt. Flavour is wonderfully balanced, with all aspects coming through at one point point - the spice is upfront, then quickly followed by a bit of vanilla and then the bready malts and wheat shine through. Lovely dry and biscuity finish that is very reminiscent of pie-crust. Never over the top, superbly drinkable, a sessionable pumpkin if there ever was one.

Tap at brewery. lots of pumpkin in the aroma. It actually smells like real pumpkin, unlike most. Plenty of nutmeg and fresh malts. Taste is similar. Pumpkin, rich bakery malts, lots of spice.

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
