If only this beer tasted as good as it looks! Great head, wonderful color but that’s where the good ends. Limited pumpkiness happening, almost nil carbonation, decent finish. Not a bad beer but probably one of the weaker pumpkin beers I’ve had this year.

Pumpkin pie spice to bitter in 2.1 seconds. When you're expecting pumpkin to mellow to citrus IPa but instead get punched in the face by spice and then bitter you can't help but feel disappointed.

Surprising drinkable pumpkin that balances initial hops with the spices. Best because it’s fresh. LCBO find.

Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Hazy dark amber color with compact head. Caramelly beer, moderately sweet; it has more hop presence than your usual pumpkin thing, some lemon custard aroma, different spice mix (less cinnamon, more intriguing), orange peel final and other hop resins.

Pours deep amber orange. Big frothy head. Sour Punkin smell, wet grasses. Taste of spice, mild pumpkin. Finish a little more robust and bitter, makes for a better balance. OK pumpkin beer

Bottle - Pumpkin spices and nice pumpkin. Orange clear copper with a rich beige head. Pumpkin and spices up front with an unpleasant bitterness that follows through to the finish. Not that great.

Pours a hazy dark copper colour with big white head slowly dissipating to a big white ring with spots covering the beer and a bit of lace up the glass. Aromas of nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves and caramel. Flavours are a caramel maltiness, some hop bitterness, cloves, nutmeg, booze and little cinnamon, nuttiness slight pumpkin touch.

Pours a dark amber with creamy white head. Some faint pumpkin pie aromas...cinnamon and cloves....that’s about it. Tastes more like an oktoberfest/marzen....malty up front hoppy finish....not much of a pumpkin beer though.

Single bottle purchased from a BC Signature Liquor Store in Abbotsford, BC on 10/22/2012. Colour: Dark brown with hints of orange, and slightly cloudy with no head. Nose: A dusty yeast, A sweet caramelized pumpkin note, a hint of maple. Taste: Medium sweet, medium-light bitter, medium sour. Somewhat sweet but quite delicate and soft. Spice does slightly emerge late with a fading vegetable bitterness. Quite, quite enjoyable.

One of the better ones in its genre... actually the first I’ve had that I’d try again! I won’t though since I’m a ticker through-and-through for the moment.
Nice combination of sweet and bitter, with the pumpkin adding to the former, but not in an artificial way. I can even taste the hops.
A pumpkin beer where the vegetable somehow actually adds to the balance instead of taking away from it. Apparently quite hard to do, so good job on that. :D
