4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a dark amber/light copper colour with a thin, quickly dissipating head.
Aromas are pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and pie crust.
Tasteís are pretty much a repeat of that.
Overall, of all of the pumpkin flavoured beers Iíve had, this is the second best. An outstanding beer, and they truly touched on every aspect of pumpkin pie, which Iíve learned is no easy task.

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 donít like this.

Tap @ Bottomís 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 couldnít 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.

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 Iíve 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.
