Bottle, LCBO. Late, but appreciated finding this one in Waterloo! Dark orange/brown with small bubbly head. Really nice pumpkin aroma - not all the spices, just pumpkin - solid. Great bottle too it should be mentioned. Taste - nicely balanced pumpkin over a lively medium body with some nice bitterness in the end from either hops or the roasted pumpkin or soemthing. Really easy to drink. A pumpkin with substance but not overwhelming, this may be my favorite one yet. Nicely done Rogue.

Tallahassee, Fl. - New Leaf Market - 22 oz bomber - painted orange. Dark orangeish copper pour, murky with a slight bubbly white head. Spicy aroma with some pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon. Flavor is full-bodied and delicious. Find some nutmeg, pumpkin pie spice, and a bit of ripening vegetables. Very well done. Crisp, even mouthfeel. Enjoyed this one - but ready to put the pumpkin ales away for this year.

750 ml orange-painted bottle. Pours hazy red with a medium beige head with decent retention that leaves a little lace. Aroma is full of pumpkin pie scents, with definite real pumpkin. Taste is sweet and savory, full of spices. Body is thinner than I was hoping. Awesome pumpkin beer, although there are better ones out there.

classic aroma of fall spices, cinnamon, mace and nutmeg. Pours a clear amber orange in the glass. Very clean ’squash’ like flavor. Some more fall spices as well; cinnamon and nutmeg. Overall, tasty and good for cool fall weather drinking.

One of the best pumpkin beers I've had this year. Poured dark golden amber from bottle. It's definitely a pumpkin beer but manages to avoid tasting like potpourri.

Ice tea dark amber, great looking beer. ood. I like the exact balance of hops VS the spicy-squashy flavors, and the said flavors are top quality. Yours in a silly orange bottle for 9.95, worth a try.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle poured into a Flute at 41°. Color is a muggy amber with good carbonation and a soft tight head. Aroma of pumpkin spices. It has a lighter medium body that goes down with a crisp fizzy feel. Flavor has light pumpkin backed by mild spices and an easy bitterness. After taste is clean with some of the spice lingering on. Overall its a nice pumpkin, its easy drinking and not over spiced.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange-painted 750 mL bottle. I’m not a big fan of the style, but this one isn’t bad, because it is not over-spiced. It is a little on the sweet side, but that only serves to balance the spice a bit. Could use a little more of an interesting malt profile, and maybe a little more booze to give it a bit of a bite. Not bad, though.
