This was a tough one to rate. On one hand, it tastes and looks great. On the other hand, it doesnít taste or look like a pumpkin flavoured ale. Itís a super pale and clear straw-yellow with a big white head. The smell is very spicy but not really any pumpkin present, mostly cloves then nutmeg, cinnamon and black pepper. The taste, although very nice and smooth, is mostly the same; a very delicious spicy beer with hardly any pumpkin presence. Itís got a medium body, soft carbonation and a strong clove aftertaste. If they added more pumpkin taste or renamed it Clove Ale it would get a higher rating. Yummy all the same.

On tap .. one of the better pumpkin options though i found it to be very heavy on the spice versus the pumpkin. Quite easy drinking; strong almost cloves notes .. overall, not bad

plaugher (197) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - OCT 15, 2013
330ml bottle (2013 batch) into a tumbler. Pours clear golden colour with a light, quickly dissipating head. Spicy nose, with a more subdued flavour of spice (mainly cinnamon and nutmeg). Previous years have either been far too spicy, or far too bland. 2013 is well-balanced.

baldric (15) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 5, 2013
Clear blonde pour with small white head dissipating rapidly with no lacing. Aroma of spice and wheat malt. Initial bitterness followed by a bit of cinnamon and too much cloves. Canít detect the pumpkin on the palate but a little comes though I the aftertaste. The cloves really turn me off of an otherwise decent brew.

Bendrixian (1158) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2011
Clear brew having a yellow amber colour and shows little lace and slight carbonation. Aromas of spices, cinnamon, pumpkin and other harvest spices and has a slightly soapy aroma. very pumpkin and cinnamon/nutmeg character. hate this style of beer but it is some of the better locally produced pumpkin beer.

HeistAlmighty (1145) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - JUN 26, 2011
341ml bottle from the 2010 batch. Pumpkin aroma with lots of spices. Medium body. Punch of Propeller bitterness on the palette.

Atheist_Peace (972) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - SEP 27, 2010
500ml bottle. 2010 vintage. Pours crystal clear yellow with the slightest hint of gold with a big bubbled head that leaves a little lace. Smells like a pumpkin pie, but much lower on the spice notes than previous efforts. Thereís a wheat note underneath that throws the whole thing off a little. In the mouth itís got a very watered down pumpkin feel with some underlying spice, but not enough, nowhere near enough. Finishes with a slight bitterness and an off note I canít put a finger on.

Beth101 (531) - West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2009
Golden colour, cloudy, large white head, lacing on glassí Light spicy aroma. Taste of spice with a hint of hops. Lacking body, sticks to the roof of your mouth.

Gethinbeer (2189) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - OCT 13, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2010 From bottle. Bitter aroma of honey with some spice. Golden colour with a thin white head. Clings to the glass. Pumpkin flavour, along with spices. Refreshing ale and different. Seems well balanced with strong pumpkin notes towards the end. Nice beer.
