3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had on tap on Wild Monk. Served in a pint glass.
A: Pours a nice amber color with a solid white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin cap that leaves nice sticky lace down the glass.
S: Nice combinations of nutmeg and all spice with some background cinnamon. Warm biscuit and some fleshy pumpkin. Great nose.
T: Sadly the taste is disappointing compared to the nose. Definitely lager yeast flavors and much bigger biscuit malt flavors. The pumpkin takes a back seat and the spices aren’t too pronounced.
M: Medium to light bodied with a nice medium carbonation and creamy mouthfeel.
O: The nose was great, but I felt like the taste was venturing into Marzen territory. Easily drinkable, but definitely lacking the definitive pumpkin pie flavors in the taste. I had a Schlafly pumpkin ale after this and it just confirmed my experiences.
Serving type: on-tap

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.

33 cl bottle, Calgary, AB, Canada. Clear light amber, bready clove aroma. Mild flavour, more clove and a metallic finish. Not offensive but there are far better pumpkin ales out there.
