Dull, hazy light brown colour. A lot of cinnamon and nutmeg in the aroma alongside sugar pie and light molasses. Mass spice in this one -unbalanced. It seemed so much smoother at the GCBF, but that was late in the fest. This is just a big whack of nutmeg, with hints of ginger. Dull malt flavours.

(Draught) Sampled at the Great Canadian Beer Festival 2007 in Victoria on September 7th, 2007. Christmas spices and somewhat bready. Flavour is spicey. Good finish.

OK, I canít 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.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2004 Deep brown colour with orange highlights and a thin tan coloured head that quickly fades. Aroma of nutmeg, coriander, and clove. Flavour is okay, spicy bitterness, slightly metallic on a faintly malty pumpkin accented brew. Body is quite thin and there is a harsh bitterness on the finish. Could have been much better
