Had in bottle at Bottlescrew Bills, Calgary AB. Overall, a spectacular beer. Aroma is purely of pumpkin pie and thanksgiving dinner. A wonderful and spectacular beer.Flavour is less flavourful that you would expect from the aroma. Pumpkin, spicy herbal flavours and malts are all present. overall, a great beer.

Nice aroma of coriander and pumpkin spice. Has a huge head and foggy orange body. NIce soft pumpkin flavour, not too overbearing. A little too weak on the mouth though. This is nice however, and highly drinkable.

65 cl bottle, Calgary, AB , Canada via coop. Clear iced tea colour. Caramel and clove aroma. Somewhat sweet, interesting. Not over powering. More spice coming through, then a long bright hop finish.

rereview jun 10/08: this beer, a beer that we used as punishment for getting scored on during a fooz game has gotten thicker on the pumpkin and somehow does not taste old... go figure. So, I poured 4 bottles into my black toilet....produced a huge, thick bubbly head with great retention and, well, the lacing was hard to judge as it did not hold up to a double flush. Best cap ever produced in my toilet by a beer. Serious. Got the pics. Eat it, Alley Kat.

Get it while it’s fresh! If you wait until, I’ll guess late November and beyond, expect this to taste like crap as it will have a short shelf life. Then you will miss a decent brew. Poured out a small, rocky, tan crown that faded quickly. Nice clear deep copper apperance. The aroma is pretty good - the spices come first (nutmeg, corriander, clove) followed by soft pumpkin (not pumpkin pie), some odd, twisted mint smell and some malt. Interesting thing here is how the aroma continues to evolve with the spice of the pumpkin showing up right as you run out of breath. The taste is pretty decent however there are no overpowering flavours and for me that is a bit of a shame. Comes across tasty but a bit weak. Maybe this is a good thing as this stays very drinkable. Taste is not as complex as the aroma - soft blend of spices and very soft pumpkin. Mainly clove. Some malt taste. Nearing medium bodied. OK carbonation but a bit tart and dry. Clovish aftertaste with very muted hop bitterness. Decent beer worth trying. Me thinks me get a case for the fridge. Success for Sherbrooke Liquor Store after shitting the bed with the green beer.

Bottle, thanks to Macadem. Pours medium amber, thin off-white head, passable lacing. Nose is very soft, with cinnamon, clove, pumpkin, some malt as well. Palate is very pumpkin-pie like, but still quite soft, and honestly rather watery. I like this, and it makes me desirous of having, better pumpkin beers in the future.

gramity (1684) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 15, 2011
Pours a pale golden copper colour, finger of head (after an aggressive pour) little retention, body barbonation is almost non-existent and no real lacing. Scent is rather mild, but the nutmeg seems to dominate followed by some green pumpkin, some cinnamon and leafy hops on the finish. The spices really shine on this one, with nutmeg and cinnamon coming through. The pumpkin comes through on the finish and and is a bit nutty with some bready caramel malts that linger on the tongue. Medium bodied ale, goes down smooth with a touch of a dry finish. I thought it would be a bit more watery given the lack of visible body carbonation. Overall this pumpkin offering is quite tasty, easily drinkable, and is the perfect complement to a fall meal

341ml bottle. Pours a clear amber with a small, white head that laces. Sweet, spicy aroma of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and caramel malt. Sweet, spicy flavour of caramel malt, cinnamon, pumpkin, ginger and nutmeg with a mildly bitter finish. Light body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. A decent pumpkin beer.

maley1 (1301) - Calgary, CANADA - JUN 18, 2011
Golden clear amber pour with small off white head. Aroma of nutmeg and cinnamon. Taste of pumpkin pie and nutmeg with a bit of cinnamon. Nice taste until the aftertaste took over which was not all that pleasant. Could of easily scored much higher because of that.
