Metalchopz (3680) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 2, 2013
Pours a clean amber colour with a frothy warm top, average retention and nice thick lacing. Nutmeg nose with hints of cinnamon. Unfortunately, the spices are pretty mild in the taste, and only the pumpkin puree (without spices) come out. Was bottles in September, so not the freshest (does not keep well, long) as a few months after, feel the sour going-bad notes. Medium-bodied with a little creaminess. Very light caramel malt appear in the aftertaste, with notes of grain. Wish I could try this fresh. Gets a little hazy near the last pour. Average pumpkin ale. mmacleod75 (112) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 17, 2012
Poured reddish brown colour with thin white head. Aroma of pumpkin (obviously), all spice, sweetness. Similar taste with a bit of cinnamon. Not a big fan of pumpkin ales, but good for the style. Hungarian_G (90) - - DEC 10, 2012
Pours a clear, coppery orange with a very thin and quickly receding head of white foam. Thin lacing around the rim. Aroma of nutmeg, cardamom, ginger and sweet caramel malts. Some alcohol notes. Nice carbonation carries the taste of pumpkin pie, malts and earthy, yeasty notes. Short, pumpkin-tinged finish with some mild bitterness. A nice seasonal ale. rwgould (331) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 16, 2012
Pours a transparent orange with a foamy white head. Aroma: Strong pumpkin spices: cinnamon, all-spice, cloves especially. Has a bit of a burnt scent to it. Faint hints of banana. Smells really dry and a bit unpleasant, despite the spices. Palate: medium bodied, very very fizzy, rather astringent, slightly dry finish, very very very long aftertaste. Taste: medium sweet at the start, then gets dry and spicy. Definitely a beer with a lot of pumpkin in it. Better than the pumpkin ales that taste just like lager. daniel0017 (457) - Yukon, CANADA - NOV 2, 2012
pours a clear orange / amber with small beige head. cinnamon, nutmeg, all-spice, vanilla and pumpkin nose. flavor reflects the aroma with some sweetness. this compliments the spice and rounds it off giving the drinker pumpkin pie likeness. smooth, well balanced mouthfeel with slight spicy tinge in the finish.

Bottle from the LCBO. Pours a clear dark orange with a bit of foamy off-white head that lingers. Smell is not immediately pumpkin pie, some spices yes, but also lots of grassy hops. Palate is medium bodied with lots of strong carbonation. Taste is pretty good, initially a bit bitter, but rounds out with a bit of spices an some squash sweetness. Not bad overall, but not a great pumpkin beer by far. rejtable (2890) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2012
Pours amber orange wih little head and no lacing. Nose is spice and some vegetable. Aromas of pumpkin, spice, root vegetables, and some light grassy hops. Tastes are medium sweet, some spice and a nice bitter finish. Mouth is light to medium body with lively carbonation. Really nice quite sessionable. czar (9613) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 29, 2012

Nice amber color; small head. Very light cinnamon aroma; some aroma of cookies or baked goods. Lean mouthfeel; there is a light biscuity malt flavor, roasted pumpkin seeds, and delicate cinnamon.
Interesting, far better than the average Pumpkin Beer.
Orange/amber pour. Pumpkin in the aroma, spices, nutmeg, allspice. Taste of Pumpkin, allspice, nutmeg, very slight sweetness (brown sugar?), vanilla, vvery slight cinnamon. Still fairly hoppy, which means it tastes like a pumpkin beer as opposed to a pumpkin pie or a spicy sugary mess. The best of the Ontario Pumpkins.
