Bottle. Slightly cloudy golden orange pour with a thin white head. A surprisingly intense pumpkin beer, flavour is stronger than the aroma, lots of pumpkin notes with some sweet caramel, subtle spice and slightly vegetal. Nice.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 7, 2015
625ml bottle from the LCBO in Toronto, Ontario. Clear copper in colour with a thin white head, light lacing. The aroma is of pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, some ginger and caramel. The flavour is of lots of pumpkin, cloves and cinnamon, some alcohol, malty. Bitter mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes sweet, warming. Lots of pumpkin and spices, its alright.

Bomber. Nutmeg aroma with notes of pumpkin, cinnamon and booze. Pours orange-copper colored with a thin tan head with good retention and lacing. Starts with good pumpkin and nutmeg flavors. Finishes dry with a lot of cinnamon and boozy ending that lingers on the palate. Good at the beginning, but a little boozy for a pumpkin.

demannu (330) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 14, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2015 I get more of a space baked apple then pumpkin in the nose. Pours a copper color and rests in glass with a amber tint. Active carbonation, fizzy short lived head, slight foam ring through out drink, some lacing. Smooth soft palate, medium feel. Flavor overall good. Mild pumpkin with moderate spicing. Not amongst my favorite pumpkin beers.
