2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours medium amber with white head. Aroma of pumpkin, allspice, mace, and nutmeg. Immediate flavor weakly reflects the aroma, followed by a mild hop bitterness, with a dry malt finish that seems out of place. Thin mouthfeel, lightly carbonated. Rather bland-tasting beer, though the aroma is promising at the start.

@bartlebier’s and oldmanriver’s comprehensive beer seminar. Aniseed, fennel, piment, nutmeg nose, tastes sweet and dull with similar features. My first pumpin ale, guess it’s not my glass of beer.

Pours clear copper thin white head with no lacing. Aroma is low caramel and spicy cinnamon. Flavor is light bready malt with some subtle spicing. Pretty mild as pumpkin beers go, nothing really stands out about it.

Sampled at Northgate Tasting. Not that good of a pumpkin ale. There is better out there to be had.

3.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a deep orange/red with a white head that lasts a while. Smells of cinnamon spices and a hint of pumpkin. Quite a metallic taste with just the slightest hint of pumpkin. Long carbonation effect. Not a great beer but not terrible either.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Overall this is a very good pumpkin beer. Filtered and clear with a great orange bronze color. The clarity is excellent. The flavor is slightly steely and metallic, but the pumpkin overtones are nice and mellow without being overbearing. One of my favorite pumpkin beers.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355ml bottle. Pours a clear, copper/orange with a thin, ring head. Aroma has some nice notes of pumpkin, spice, caramel, bread, and traditional hops. Taste is balanced. Traditional hopped with mild pumpkin and spice. Medium body and carbonation. Clean and refreshing in the mouth with a slightly dry finish. Overall more beer flavour that pumpkin but still pretty good. Would drink again for sure.

Not particularly memorable. Light in color; didn't pick up any specific notes in the aroma. All in all, it was just okay.
