I was settled in for a great Pumking experience and was I ever disappointed. A great color and decent aroma had me intrigued from the get go. I took my first drink and cringed. My second drink, well, was my last drink. Thank goodness my pub has Two Hearted on tap.

22 oz bottle poured into a Spiegelau tulip. Bottled 7/21/2014. Semi-clear golden yellow with a finger of off-white head. Aromas of pumpkin, cinnamon and other spices, light graham cracker. Tastes of pumpkin, spices, some bitterness. Maybe my palateís changed but I enjoyed this a lot more the previous two years.

Was not a big fan of this pumpkin beer. Too much of an artificial taste for me. I did however like the ABV, smell, and color of the beer. I would still have again maybe a little after a meal.

22 oz bottle from Biggie Wine & Liquor. Golden orange and clear appearance with a dissipating beige head. Aroma of alcohol, pumpkin spices, pie crust, nutmeg, cinnamon, paint thinner and chemicals. Similar flavor, a little messy with a hot finish. Something seems off here. Disappointed.

Pours a hazy golden orange with a thin off white head. Aroma is spicy, pumpkin pie. Medium mouthfeel with medium carbonation on the tongue. Taste is fabulous. Has a touch of vanilla and pumpkin pie on the tongue with a bit of nutmeg. Nice seasonal pumpkin beer.

Golden orange pour. Nose is fresh pumpkin pie. Taste is pumpkin pie, fruity and bitter ale, mildly astringent for a moment, bitterness and pumpkin spices to the finish. Soft mouthfeel.

A little hot but very good. Loads of cinnamon and nutmeg. Not a lot of cloves. Some bread notes as well. Overall a great beer!

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.

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
