3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml brown bottle. copper orange colour with faint haze. Off white head thatt fades to a ring on the surface, scant spots of lace in the glass. Spicey nose - cloves and nutmeg, cinnamon, some fruitiness. Taste has some nutty notes, caramel malt, light herbal hop notes. Malty finish, toasty with a bit of herbal bitterness. High carbonation, medium bodied. Not bad, happy halloween.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A light golden amber body with a thick foamy finger of yellowish beige head that leaves some spotty lacing. The nose is grainy with some grassy hops and a huge boiled vegetable odor. A light pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice with a light biscuit malt. The taste is sweet and grainy in the middle with a pumpkin and spice filled finish including light hops and an astringent spice aftertaste. tastes a bit like sweat and funky moldly pumpkin. The body is medim with a slick mouthfeel and an astringent spice mouthfeel. Overall, this is a huge disappointment for a Phillips brew.

Bottle. Dark amber with a decent head and a bit of lace. Aroma is equal parts squash and spice. Flavour seems more green vegetable than pumpkin with a light spice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2012 Clear light copper with a tan disappearing head. Nice pumpkin flavor and nose, lightly spiced, nice pumpkin finish. A lighter version from this years pumpkin crop (8 so far) but definately one of my favorites! LF (Lagerboy Friendly)
2012: Basically the same as 2011, prehaps a bit lighter bodied.

650ml bottle pours a nice golden color with a small white head and a few spots of lace. Aroma is of some spices. Taste is light sweetness and a mild hoppy bitter finish. Not the greatest of pumpkin beers, as body is a little light.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Single bottle purchased from a BC Signature Liqour Store in Vancouver, BC on 10/22/2011. Colour: Light orange....like a pumpkin! Nose: Mmm...lots of pumpking loaded with spice! More like Pumpkin Cheescake. Taste: Medium-light sweet, light bitter, medium-light sour. Not the most pumpkiny of tastes but there is some nice vanilla that comes through. A touch of liquorice. The finish is short but the pumpkin cheesecake slightly appears. Great nose but wanted more in the palate. Still, very drinkable.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Very disappointing with all the great pumpkin beers available. Aroma is of some spices with grassy notes, no malt aroma. The base beer seems to be the same as their ginger, very light blonde, not promising any caramel or rich flavours. Taste confirms this, very light flavour profile with some spicing that seems to be missing something. No caramel flavours or pumpkin flavours. Very light body. Another swing and a miss from Phillips, hopefully they get back on track.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
650mL bottle, pours dark orange with a small white head. Aroma of deep pumpkin, nutmeg and cinnamon. Flavour is essentially the same, with a lingering spicy pumpkin finish, although quite muted and generic. Decent.

UPDATED: APR 3, 2012 Great seasonal favourite. Could use more nutmeg! Otherwise nice rich aroma and fruity taste. Dark color and full flavor

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange/ amber colour, with a tiny head. The aroma was is of fresh pumpkin, but the taste was nicely balanced. As it warms the all spice, nutmeg and some cinnamon notes start to show through. Great seasonal!
