(650ml bottle) In-person trade from Ferris. Pours a quick dissipating yellow frothy head atop a red body. Nose of very mild pumpkin pulp and slight spice. Somewhat thin, tonic and vegetable. Not sweet at all and authentic take on a pumpkin ale.

Light copper. Minimal head. Aroma of pumpkin meat and spices. Spice flavour up front then a pumpkin finish. More bitterness and hops than usual for a pumpkin beer. Overall a tad thin perhaps with dominant dark spice notes. Grumbo (4296) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2016
Bottle at Aarhus tasting. Pours hazy dark amber with a small off white head. Aroma is pumpkin, and cinnamon. Medium sweetness. Medium body, average carbonation. Spot on pumpkin pie beer. pintbypint (3947) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 5, 2007
341ml brown bottle. Pours a clear brassy orange colour. Head is billowy upon first pour, slowly fades to a ring. Pumpkin pie spice aroma - sweet, clovey, nutmeg, some caramelish malt. Flavour has some toasted malt, pie spice notes and some late hops. Finishes dry with some leafy and earthy aftertastes. Medium body, has a light carbonation. cfrancis (3615) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 26, 2012
Thanks to Reimer for this. Pours a clear dark amber with a small white ring. Aroma is pumpkin spice, cinnamon and nutmeg. Taste is not overpowering. Pumpkin spice, cinnamon, nutmeg are all in pretty good balance. Easy drinking.

A good pumpkin beer if you’re not real big on pumpkin beers. The pumpkin and spices are there but fairly subdued. I’d prefer it be amped up more. rederic (3344) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 24, 2013

Bottle, courtesy of Jimmay (thanks!). Dark orange with lots of brown, small still white head. Great aroma, Pumpkin pie mixed with caramel. Yum. Taste follows exactly - very sweet and very spicy and very very tasty. A tan thin I suppose. Really liked this one, certainly in the upper end of pumpkin ales I have ever tried. garthicus (2963) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 12, 2009
Thanks to HogTownHarry for sharing this with Blankboy and I. Appearance: Orange red with a small head. Aroma: Pumpkin spice, pie, nice! Flavour: Yes, a lot of pumpkin. Like a wonderful glass of pumpkin pie. Smashing. bulldogops (2874) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 7, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2015 Bottle. 5.4%. Clear copper-amber pour, that produces a minimal bubbly foam even when poured aggressively. Aroma is potent, quite a bit of cinnamon, nutmeg, and a touch of pumpkin. Taste is malty and heavy on the nutmeg, hint of cinnamon, and sweet caramel. This is a pretty good seasonal, and despite the presence of fairly heavy flavours, it remains a balanced, full bodied ale.
