Pours orange with a medium, lasting, white head. The smell is of cinnamon, nutmeg, spicy yeast and a bit of caramel malt. The taste is spicy up front, with more cinnamon, nutmeg, sweet malt, leading to a mild and balanced hop finish. OntBeerDrinker (514) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 4, 2012
Autum orangey redish fALl color. 1 finger head some carbination. smell is vanilla with light pumpkin pie. Taste starts off nothing like pumpkin ale. Carbination on tounge,medium bodied,feel the hops,kinda sweet popy ale then like 5-10 seconds later the flavours creep in smoothly with vanilla dommanet,sourish pumpkin puree taste kinda a little real pumpkin 2 and everything pumpkin pie but lightly. Cloves scratch throat a little. Not the best or worst pumpkin ale. Cheer’s. cfrancis (3441) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 2, 2012
Pours a light orange amber with a big frothy white top. Aroma is faint pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg. Taste is light, slight pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg spices with a small roasted malt in the background. A "lighter" pumpkin ale. RxForHealth (180) - - SEP 22, 2012
500mL bottle bottled 18 days ago :).
An excellent fall ale. Not too heavy on the nutmeg or the pumpkin, but just enough for a great balance. Nice long finish. Will rebuy.

Smells like pumpkin pie, looks like a pumpkin, tastes like the pie. Orangy gold in colour with medium lacing. Taste is sweet and a little malty, palate is pretty light and carbonation a bit high. Not a bad drinkk, just nose heavy without much follow through. Tap at volos. Wyrdwulf (1) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 15, 2012 does not count
I tried several pumpkin ales together. Of the three brands I tried, I would say this was the best. It has a very soft, pumpkiny palate and I absolutely love pumpkin. Cloudier than the other’s I tried, I prefer cloudy and thick. herrbrown1974 (427) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2012
Bottle. By the sounds of it, this stuff is much better on tap. Or maybe something is changed in 2012. Aroma is a little earthy, yes some pumpkin and a slight caramel maltiness. Smooth, medium body. Easy drinking but I didn’t get much of the "pumpkin pie" effect. Mostly just a drinkable pale ale. I prefer a pumpkin ale to pop a bit more. rob6239 (677) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 12, 2012
This is good. Pours orange-amber with just slight carbonation for a great pour from the bottle. Aroma is inviting - it has the pumpkin spice of course, but the hop varieties come through as well. Taste is mild sweet with just a slight bite at the start of the sip. One of the better pumpkin beers. chris__hartley (445) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 11, 2012
It pours a deep dark orange with golden highlights; the head is off-white and soapy. The aroma has notes of: roasted pumpkin seed, nutmeg, cinnamon, pumpernickel bread, and a sweet maltiness. The taste is light sour that finishes dry and slightly salty; there are notes of: cereal, treacle, slight roasted pumpkin, and light floral hoppiness. The palate is light bodied, watery-thin, light carbonation, and medium finish. Overall, it’s definitely accurate to the description. However, it’s far too subtle - doesn’t seem right to call it much of a pumpkin beer.
