Nice aroma; malt, spices. Good flavours - starts malty with burnt caramel flavours and then opens up with pumpkin, spices and a bit of sweetness. Nice smooth finish, a little bit of bitterness. Overall great drinkability, a well done pumpkin ale.

650mL bottle pours a deep amber color with a nice white head that settles to spotted lacing. Aroma is mild pumpkin with some spice and mild hops. Taste is hoppy bitterness with some pumpkin and a light malty finish. A nice seasonal beer for Halloween.

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

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I’m really impressed by this one. The pour is a dark murky brown with light copper tones at the bottom. A nose of huge squash and pumpkin with medium allspice and cinnamon. The middle is of brown sugar with toffee, breaded malts and an impending pumpkin vegetable taste. The pumpkin is huge and heavy with a spiced finish. No alcohol, but a slightly overbearing spiced pumpkin finish, but still tasty. Overall, fantastic brew with impressive malty balance with the pumpkin.

Pours a nice dark bronze colour with a medium size head with good retention. Aroma is a little light at the beginning but was it mores up more spice come thru mostly cinnamon and caramal malts. Flavour is sort of like a bourbon heavy on the spice with a nice sweetness from the malts and just a hint of pumpkin and squash

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.

Dries out in the end, some malts and grains in the aftertaste, medium bodied, average carbonation. Decent pumpkin brew.
