Drink to me only with thine eyes,
And I will pledge with mine;
Or, leave a kiss within the cup -
I'll wash it down with wine.
Pours a dark and cloudy amber colour, with a huge off white head. Aroma notes include nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, and pumpkin. Tasting notes include borderline cloying sweetness, cinnamon, ginger, and a hint of pumpkin. Barely any carbonation, and long sweet finish, Meh!

This is a re-rating, as the first time I tried it I believe the beer had gone bad.
Pours a rich amber colour, with basically no head at all. Aroma is pleasant with notes of nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, allspice, and pumpkin. Tasting notes include distinct pumpkin, with notes of ginger/nutmeg/cloves. Fantastic seasonal, and much better than my first go around with this brew!
Pours no head whatsoever and has a hazy orange/amber appearance. Pumpkin spice aromas are dominant. Flavours are also of pumpkin spice. Some pretty noticeable notes of nutmeg and more spices. Has a watery mouthfeel. Not really the pumpkin ale you want to recommend to newbies. azzurro (449) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2017
Taste of pumpkin is overpowering. Taste is too far off from an ale, just not my type (yet?). ChadPoole (479) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 19, 2016
Pours cloudy amber with a small off white head. Aroma is pumpkin pie spices with a lot of nutmeg. It has a creamy body with a pungent fermented fruit taste. Interesting

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2017 First pumpkin beer of the season is an award winner (2015 Gold Ontario Brewing Awards) from Black Creek brewing in Toronto. mcberko (19172) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 2, 2016
5% for a beautiful Amber with minimal foam. It's got a really nice spice aroma with cinnamon, nutmeg and coriander plus rich malt/pumpkin.
Medium bodied and dry with good sweetness like yams, caramel, nutmeg and a rich spiciness. Really good stuff.

Bottle, pours a deep dark orangey brown with a small beige head. Aroma brings out lots of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. Flavour is along the same lines, with cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger, with a little toffee in there. Pretty boring, but competently done I suppose. Just not exciting.

Tasting at Matt’s Vighals (4492) - SÃ¸rumsand, NORWAY - DEC 25, 2015
Brown color, small head. Some aroma of spices, alcohol, cookies. Dry mouthfeel, thin body, very shallow flavor, and some spices.
Not very good.
Gylden brun noe tåkete med lavt beige skum. Lukter gresskar, nellik og rett å slett julelukter. Middels fyldig, krydder, noe karamellsødme. Kort litt pepperig kort avslutning.
