Bottle - Lots of soapy pumpkin notes. Clearish dark brown with a decent white head. Pumpkin and spice with some Amber malts and more of those soapy notes. Not great. mcberko (17178) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 2, 2015
12 oz. bottle, pours a deep dark orangey brown with a small off-white head. Aroma brings out very earthy pumpkin notes, cinnamon and nutmeg. Flavour is very dirty and earthy, with nutmeg, cinnamon, and earth. Very dirty and dry, with an earthy finish. Meh. bdleedahl (435) - , Saskatchewan, CANADA - DEC 2, 2015
2015 advent calendar. Quite mildly spiced. Slightly astringent. Very slight haziness.

Beer Advent Calendar bottle to pint glass.
Well, it begins again. Iíve been a good boy, waiting until December to start the calendar. Thereís some gourd in the aroma, but with most of these, itís more of a pumpkin pie ale, rather than a pumpkin ale. So, I get ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and perhaps clove too. Why canít it just be pumpkin? It pours a deep red colour with a 1 cm, creamy, tan head with good retention. Taste is overpowering spice...all the aforementioned spices, yeah...pumpkin too, a touch of sweet and bitter too and also some bread. Not bad...but not great. A decent start to the box. pintbypint (3578) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 1, 2015
12oz brown bottle. Craft Beer Advent Calendar í15. Dark red-orange colour, pretty clear. Beige head sits low, spotty lacing. Nose is very spiced - cinnamon, clove and nutmeg, maybe some caramel. Taste has some dark malt notes and some earth, cinnamon and nutmeg spices. Earthy and grassy hop notes lingering with a lot of bitterness, late spices again. Medium bodied. Enjoayble.

Pours a clear amber with a frothy light brown head that leaves lots of lacing up the glass. Aroma of caramel, cinnamon, clove, pumpkin and light molasses. Taste is natural pumpkin with cinnamon and cloves and finishes semi dry... Great pumpkin beer! Oldschool_Mike (368) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 1, 2015
Bottle into pint glass. Pours a dark brown with beige head. Aroma is clove cinnamon and nutmeg. Taste is about the same. RCx240 (198) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 1, 2015
Pours deep, dark amber with a frothy, off-white head. Good retention. Aroma of molasses, cinnamon, pumpkin. Taste of cinnamon, nutmeg, bitter with a touch of sweetness. Medium body, oily texture, average carbonation. Long pumpkin finish. Solid pumpkin beer. ryanhunter_4 (283) - Strathmore, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 1, 2015
12 oz bottle poured at home. Day 1 of the craft beer advent calendar. Pours a dark brown color with a beige head that sticks around. Smells like oatmeal brown bread (baking) and spice. This is a more subtle flavor than other pumpkin beers iíve had, which is a good thing. There is a nice bitter finish to it. I like it for a seasonal beer.

Clear dark amber pour. Couple fingers of tan head, decent retention. Green pumpkin and spice aroma. Taste is much heavier on the spice, less pumpkin only slightly present. Fairly sweet. Still one of the better pumpkin beers Iíve tried.
