COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We’ve carved out a pumpkin Oktoberfest even Ichabod would love. This hearty, malty lager is warmed by the mighty pumpkin and lifted with notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, all-spice and ginger.

Clear amber with a pale head. Aroma is pumpkin, allspice, caramel, hint of vanilla. Light-medium bodied, vaguely oily mouthfeel, sweet on the palate with a vegetal finish. Taste is pumpkin, spices, caramel. Good, easy drinking pumpkin seasonal.

Good creamy pumpkin aroma and taste. Not much in the ways of spices but still pretty tasty.

Pours a crystal clear copper with a small white head. Aroma is a mix of nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, some caramel maltiness and traces of pumpkin. Flavour is a spice mixture of cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, a light ginger kick, mild bitterness, and a touch of caramel maltiness. One of the better pumpkin beers, fairly clean and crisp but it’s still a pumpkin beer...

Ferris (4526) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 7, 2013
Bottle - Pumpkin is upfront with spices and pale malts. Clear effervescent gold with a thin white head. Lots of pumpkin and a simple clean finish. Very light and refreshing, but after a few sips the pumpkin on it’s own is just a bit much. Nice idea, good execution, but not to my taste.

Ambrée/orange brumeux avec un petit col beige. L’arôme de citrouille sourdiné avec du malt. Le goût est de malt avec un peu de citrouille. Il a une finale un peu acide.

This is a smooth lager based pumpkin style beer. Pours amber orange, weak head. Nice pumpkin flavour. Not overly spiced like many other styles. Very drinkable and smooth. Some Punkin beers can be over the top and you can only drink one or two, you can drink this all night. Tasted at the Kingston in Vancouver ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap. Pours orange ?? who would have thunk ? Aroma is nice and smells like pumpkin seed but tastes bland and sugary sweet.

On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a clear golden orange with a small beige head. Aroma of feint pumpkin spices, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Flavour brings out pumpkin purée, a little nutmeg, and a touch of cinnamon. Sort of like a watered down Pumking. Good stuff, but nothing special.
