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.

Clean amber color. The cinnamon aroma is mild. The mouthfeel is lean, off-dry, with biscuity malts and very mild cinnamon.
Appreciated because delicate.

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.

Ferris (12151) - 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.

2013-10-23. Crisp dark amber body head modest off white head. Aroma is mild, sweetish malt, whisper of vanilla and cinnamon. Flavour sweetish malt base, sweet pumpkin and a bit of pumpkin spice, cinnamon notes. Whisper of vanilla or am I imagining that? Smooth average plus bodied palate, soft carbonation. 3+ Decent.

solidfunk (7235) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Pumpkin and oktoberfest style, not tap things I tend to enjoy on their own. Louts clear brown without head or lacing. Pumpkin pie aroma with some not. Finishes with light sweetness and a little sourness on long term finish. Soft carbonation. Tap at volos.

blankboy (7150) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 5, 2012
Draught at The Morrissey, Vancouver. Pours a deep orange-amber with a small frothy white head. Nice aroma of pumpkin, spices, a good amount of sweetness and malt -- like a lovely pumpkin dessert but not cloying. Flavour is just as good, again like a nice pumpkin dessert, not too sweet, a good amount of spice -- quite enjoyable. Average to medium bodied. A great Pumkin beer. -- Rated via Beer Buddy.

reebtogi (5525) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 1, 2012
341ml bottle pours a dark golden color with a finger of white head that settles to leave some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is cinnamon and nutmeg with a bit of caramel. Taste is cinnamon and nutmeg with a sharp hoppy bitterness that leaves little to be desired and a light caramel malty sweetness. Not as good as the other beers from this brewery, a bit of a disappointment.

tom10101 (5079) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 9, 2013
Bottle (341 ml). From FondueVoodoo, thanks! Clear bright golden/orange with a small off-white head and little to no lacing. Aroma is most of spices (nutmeg, cinnamon, all-spice and ginger) along with pumpkin and light caramel. Taste is about the same with as much spices. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Even with all those spices it’s still decently drinkable. Not my kind of beer, but not bad for the style.
