1.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 1/20
Bomber from the LCBO. Clear amber colour, minimal head.Smells like sweet cinnamon, bread, pumpkin. Taste is dominated by bitter medicinal notes. Buttery, spicy, deep pumpkin, in a bad way. Intense spice. Warm finish. Herbal-medicinal-bitter taste was too much for me. Sipped on it for an hour and poured half he bottle down the drain. I like pumpkin pie, but I don’t like this.

Tap @ Bottom’s Up. Not my cuppa. Tasted like pumpkin pie with aspartame. Smells like pumpkin pie and fritos. The sweetness is too much for me.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2014 600ml bottle served in a thimbler.
A: Pours a liverly slightly hazy orange color forming a small light yellow creamy head. Low retention and only few lacings left
S: Lovely sweet and spicy in the nose. A cinnamon bomb. Strong notes of caramel, sweet grains and pumpkin. Smells like a pumpkin pie... Lovely stuff
T: Sweet upfront. Cinnamon, cloves, caramel, caramel malts, pumpkin pie, herbs. Notes of yeasts and mild flowery and mild bitter hops in the end
M: Medium body and carbonation. Very spicy aftertaste
O: Good drinkability. Its sweetness and spiceness does not compromise it. Excellent ale. I couldn’t imagine that a pumpkin ale could be so good

I did not expect so great taste from pumpking beer. This one is really great . Amber color , medium off-white head. Strong but natural aroma of pumpkin and spices . Perfect balanced sweet taste with pumpkin notes and cinnamon, pleasant bitterness in aftertaste.

Poured from a bottle. Short lived head, cloudy orange color. Smell was off-putting. But the taste is better, fruity but not really pumpkin.

Aroma of soap with a cloudy amber color with a short lasting white head. Taste like a cheese cake with a hint of pumpkin. A creamy feel with a nice pumpkin finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a bomber dated 8/14/14 - about 5 weeks old.
Aroma - definite pumpkin spice to it. Can almost spell a pie crust in there too.
Appearance - poured quickly and the head dissipated about as fast as I’ve ever seen.
Taste - Definite pumpkin taste - with a very sweet, almost booze taste at the end.
Palate - Very sweet after taste. Good beer - not sure how many of these I could drink in a row though.
Overall - a solid pumpkin beer.

On tap. Sweet vanilla and pumpkin pie spices along with some hefeweizen yeast character. Hazy pumpkin appearance with only a white collar on top. Sweet pumpkin pie flavour with an assertive bitterness and hefeweizen like esters. Medium body, medium carbonation, midway between smooth and crisp.
