2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at ABR 2015.Brown color. Pumpkin is very light and in fact I didn’t pick it up until a friend pointed it out. some squash/pumpkin flavor now that I look for it, none of the spice qualities I usually get in a pumpkin beer. I do not get the cinnamon, ginger or nutmeg.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma dark fruits, pumpkin, pumpkin spices
Appearance red, clear, white foam,
Taste medium sweetness,
Palate medium body, lively,
Overall it tastes more like a quad than a pumpkin beer. It is a good beer but not a pumpkin beer and for that reason I would not suggest this beer to a friend

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle) Reddish brown colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, spicy nose with notes of caramel, dark bread, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and pumpkin. Malty, fruity, spicy taste with caramel, treacle-toffee, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin, wort bread and a sweetish finish with a gentle bitterness and a slightly vinous touch. More than medium body, with a certain sweetness. I’m not a great fan of pumpkin beers and it gets a bit sweet after a while, but it’s quite well made and tasty, with the ginger coming through more and more. Quite nice.

Dark copper color with off white head. Poured from a bottle that was refrigerated. Sweet pumpkin flavor with a hint of cinnamon and spice. Good flavor but a little too sweet for me.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the LCBO. Dark ruby-copper with a finger or so of beige foam. Very nice aroma of sweet caramel, barley candy, earthy pumpkin, and a melange of spices - nutmeg and ginger quite noticeable, cinnamon and allspice supporting. Body is a touch sticky - would benefit from just a bit more carbonation to lighten it up - but still OK. Flavour is just what the aroma promises - sweet maltiness up front, pumpkin pie in the middle, off-dry finish with some twiggy hops toward the back of the palate. Quite a good version of a beer style that I rarely want much to do with.
