brokensail (10935) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 6, 2014
On tap @ Steamworks. Dark amber pour with a khaki head. Nose is big on the pie spices. A lot of nutmeg and all spice. Some caramel, vanilla, and a hint of marshmallow. Slight toasted nut aroma. Sweet tasting beer, not surprisingly. A lot of caramel and nuts. Toasted bread, some nutmeg, cinnamon, and all spice. A hint of ginger and vanilla. Subtle earthiness. Kind of a typical pumpkin beer...not bad.

HogTownHarry (6108) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUN 24, 2014
2013-01-18 - with blankboy, jercraigs & mabel - c/o blankboy. Very bright and bubbly refractive deep amber with a smallish lasting frothy/creamy beige head. Aroma is spicy, sweet, vague roast appropriately vegetal malt - I got a bit of candy necklace in there too - sweet fake fruit, thankfully not too much of it, but enough to detract. [overhead by blankboy: "my favorite, Harry, is when you ask questions of yourself - what is that? - I think itís ....">. Tastes like pumpkin spices, not much alcohol - simple, really. Average body, a bit astringent, mild carbonation, quick finish, a little harsh and overly spiced and sugary. Ehh.

RumRunner101 (770) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 13, 2013
Deep amber red pour with a fluffy off white head. Aroma is sweet with pumpkin pie spice, raisins, toast. Medium bodied, creamy. Sweet-ish malt profile with ginger standing out the most and lingering on the finish along with a bit of a bitter bite. Okay.

sulawang (621) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 30, 2013
Visual: Beautiful artwork printed on the bottle; it shows care and pride even for short-term seasonal brew, kudos. Pours dark copper-reddish with a nice-sized foamy head, a bit of lacing, thin layer of retention, lots of fast activity. Nose: brown sugar malts with some metallic notes. Cinnamon and caramel as well. (6)aromatic strength Attack: creamy-fizzy mouthfeel, malty (7)sweetness Mid-palate: (MAIN) brown sugar malts, ginger dryness, cinnamon, pumpkin (3)saltiness Finish: (2)ginger spiciness, residual sugars, malty pumpkin spiced light (3)bitter hopped finish. Summary: I like this more than the GI Pumpkining I had yesterday. Better packaging, visually, more character and depth, however itís astringent with the dominant dry ginger bitterness. (Note: all numbers above are on a 10-point scale, with 1 being weak and 10 being the strongest)
