COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Pumpkin Ale is a malty, copper coloured brew that’s spiced with cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and ginger. We add 100 lbs of pumpkin directly to the mash and the resulting beer tastes just like pumpkin pie in a glass

I dig the dark ruby colour. Not too much pumpkin smell. More spices that anything. Nutmeg. Cinnamon. Vanilla. Taste is more of the same spices, with upfront bland malt. Overall, decent taste, but not much body.

22. Thanks r! Pours a burnished crystal clear dark amber. Rich caramel and pie spice nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Rich caramelly pie like mid palate despite a fairly average body weight. Mild caramel finish.

Tap@steamworks brewery. Dark mahogany. Slight haze. Intens cinnamon. Some complex wooden flavours from the pure. Strange perfumed brew.

GCBF 2010. Dark orange amber. Rich spicy pumpkin aroma, heaps of nutmeg, cinnamon, a little clove. Cakey, bready, spicy palate. The best of the pumpkin brews at the fest, and the best I’ve had in a while.

Tap. Spicy cookiedough aroma. Cloudy brown, offwhite lace. Chewy fruity, spices are wellbalanced. Slightly weird, but a quite pleasant dessert actually. Probably first pumpkin beer I enjoyed.

Sampled at GCBF ’10, pours deep amber with a beige head. Very strong pumpkin aroma with nutmeg and cinnamon as well. Flavour is quite spicy pumpkin and nutmeg. The body is quite hard-edged, but this wins points for potency.

Gravelle (104) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 19, 2009
Golden brown, thin white head. Aroma is all pumpkin supporters, clove, nutmeg. etc. etc. Taste is all spice, pumpkin, and .... soo tired of rating pumpkin beers... most of the same. Good effort!

OK, I can’t stop staring at the bartenders tits... yes. There they are again... ack. Murky deep amber colour with a thin, tight tan head. Why has the pumpkin not jumped out more? Seems very subdued. Slight fruit, pumpkin pie spice without the pumpkin, mild licorice, roses? A touch odd but decent. The taste pretty good: hops and dirty spices, pumpkin, nutmeg, wheat, sour, watery spices that might close in on a pepper flavour. A bit rough on the edges, mild carb, long spicy finish with mild hops. More of a spiced English brew than a pumpkin based one.
