UPDATED: APR 6, 2013 Une bière légère avec un gôut de citrouille très subtile et un peut creux. Les bulles intèrfer avec le goût initiale, qui n’est pas forte. La palette ne contribue pas a cette bière.

This is only my second pumpkin beer; the first was by Lighthouse. Whereas that one was sweet and creamy, like a pie, this one picked up the spices of the pie but otherwise was just pure pumpkin, and was quite light... VBS speaks of a powdery feel picked up in this brewer’s beers and while I agree with him on most of their ales, it’s not present here. Easy drinkin’.

650ml bottle. Pours like orange-coloured apple juice with thin, fizzy head. Aroma is pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg with a very thin caramel malt backing. Mildly sweet with subtle spice notes. Flat, light-bodied, thin and a little slick. Mild dessert pastry finish. Didn’t love this at first, but it got much better when it wasn’t straight-from-the-fridge cold.

Bottle from Comfort Inn Cold Beer and Wine Store, Richmond
Hazy copper color, beautiful, with small head. Aroma and flavor are mild; thanks to the brewer, it has more character of vegetables, hay and grass and very little from spices
(some dusty cinnamon and light aniseed though); it acquires a light feeling of heather, but overall it’s quite refreshing. Low bitterness.
A correct take at the style.

sulawang (593) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 26, 2012
pours clear orange with a shade of brown, almost zero head, a few slow-moving CO2 streams. Baked pumpkin pie on the nose. Tastes of cinnamon, nutmeg, light caramel up front, tingly-creamy mouthfeel, but body fizzles in the mids to the finish. Finishes watery, malty, and leaves a roughness on the tongue. Medium complexity, medium depth, good transitions, okay carry, good drinkability. A decent pumpkin ale, not the best, but worthy of trying once.

paco (527) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - FEB 9, 2012
Bottle purchased from Kensington Wine Market in Calgary in October 2011. Pours orange. The Lager glass retains a 1 finger head, the tumbler glass retains a film. Aromas of herbs and spices. Some soap and doughy yeast. Taste is soapy with subtle pumpkin. Plenty of yeast on the aftertaste. Thin bodied.

DuffMan (6462) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 8, 2011
Botlle, shared with Parksy and Gripp in a pumpkin beer taste-off. This poured more gold than orange with a medium white head. Low aromatics for a pumpkin brew, not very assertive in the spice territory, more caramel than anything, and a little sweaty. Muted pumpkin and caramel and grain, very little in the way of spice. Actually not very appealing.

goatboy (12) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 3, 2011
Very disappointing, the pour is copper orange with a small white head, as soon as I nosed this beer I knew something was not right. A displeasing aroma of Band-Aid, Vegetable & an out of place spice. Very light body, the pumpkin flavor seemed artificial, autumn is all about rich colors and rich flavors and unfortunately this beer doesn’t deliver. It’s missing something, of all the Pumpkin beers available in Alberta this one was by far my least favorite.

Bottle at home, out of my Maudite glass. Pours clear orange, 1-finger white head, short-lived, no real lacing to speak of. Nose is bright pumpkin, nice fruit and caramel notes, some lovely lifted clove/cardamom notes, and a hint of new leather. Flavours are medium-bodied, spicy and with plenty of pumpkin. Very bright in the mouth, fresh and spicy, and not at all cloying. I really rather dislike Pumpkin Beer in general, and while I’m ambivalent to this one, I will admit it’s rather well done. Good show Phillips!

Pours light brown with almost no head . Strong pumpkin aroma and mild spices. Light and malty tastes like ginger bread and pumpkin pie. Not bad.
