Karol (798) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 16, 2016
Bottle bought at the brewery. Ruby copper color. Aroma of cinnamon, spices and pumpkin. Taste pretty much the same plus bread, malt and some fruit marmalade. A good pumpkin ale, not mind blowing, but good.

Alpha10 (615) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 7, 2016
2016/07/07 - Pours a clear, deep amber colour with a foamy, off white head that quickly reduces and leaves minimal, spotty lacing. Aroma is bread, nutmeg, clove, cinnamon, vegetal notes, slightly herbal hops and a hint of pumpkin. Taste is dough, spices (mainly nutmeg, light cinnamon as clove), mildly earthy/herbal hops, vegetal/pumpkin notes and a hint of roast on the finish. Mouthfeel is thin to medium and slightly watery, with average carbonation and a drying finish. Nothing exceptional, but better than many pumpkin ales. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DuffMan (9538) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 9, 2016
Botte, purchased at the brewery and shared with TylerDurden. Medium orange amber, clear, with an average white head. Prominent gourd with nice fall spices. A bit bready, a bit sweet. Just not in the mood for this at the moment, but it’s a fine "standard" pumpkin brew.

Drinkable pumpkin beer, in small doses. Light orange colour. Fresh from the brewery. Cheesy aroma, dry finish.

Metalchopz (3073) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 10, 2015
Enjoyed at Arrow & Loon on cask, and under the name Pi-eyed Pumpkin. Pours a pretty hazy amber colour with lots of tiny particles, spices floating around. Foamy beige head that surprisingly stays quite a long time, with decent lacing. Lots of pumpkin in the aromas with some nice spices. Again, the pumpkin in the taste is pretty strong, over the spices with some decent hops, grassy notes lingering. Pretty nice real-pumpkin ale with the spices well-blended. Worth it on cask.

Hammy78 (961) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 4, 2015
Bottle from my brother in-law. Pours a pure copper, not see through, finger of off white head some lacing spots. Nose is a little pumpkin spice, a bit off almost skunks vegetal. Tastes a little sweet, and some pumpkin and spice, touch bitter. Not stellar but okay.

Tranquillity (1858) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 23, 2015
Tap at Stack, Toronto. The aroma is full and pleasant, hoppy with flowers, almost like a weizen, subtle but strong. The taste is nice as well, not too much pumpkin at all. Nice!

shaynsawchuk (681) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 7, 2013
355 mL bottle. Pours hazy burnt orange with a thin white cap. On the nose, clove, cinnamon and pumpkin and a hint of malt. Taste is somewhat watery, mildly sweet and spiced. Thin to moderate mouth feel and medium carbonation. Not to my taste.

kevinsenn (1993) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 10, 2013
Bottle from brewery. Aroma: metallic, malt, pumpkin, and spices bordering on artificial. The taste is just too loaded with spices for me. Lots of cinnamon which may or may not be real, but is too prominent nonetheless.

matt7215 (2278) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 2, 2013
355 ml bottle from the brewery. Deep orange with a small white head. Nice spice and grame crackery pumpkin ale. Probably more enjoyable in season.
