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. cmacklin (1333) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 12, 2016
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.

Bright amber colour. Heavy spice aroma of mace and cinnamon along with a rich toffee maltiness. Flavour is again very heavy on the spice - cinnamon, allspice being predominant. Malts are thick, but still not enough to provide complete balance against the onslaught of spice. VertBaconStrips (2408) - Blerkablerka, VENEZUELA - JUN 15, 2009
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. Macadem (103) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 23, 2009
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.
The pumpkin pie spice is really all i can get on the nose of this, which is delightful in its own right, it smells exactly like pumpkin pie! The flavor is alot more subtle, with the pie spice being only really on the after palate. There is a light ale behind it, but the pie spice still dominates. Not often i’ll comment on a label, but this one is great for an october seasonal beer.

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. maley1 (1301) - Calgary, CANADA - JUN 18, 2011
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
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. AgentAle (1817) - Fort Mcmurray, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 28, 2013

From a bottle. Very good Pumpkin flavored beer. Tastes like drinking a piece of pumpkin pie!
