COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In our pursuit to bring you the most flavourful and unique beers possible, we are proud to release this tasty autumn ale. Handcrafted with an assortment of specialty malts and hops, we added a generous amount of pumpkin directly into the brew. Combine this with hints of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and allspice, and you’ve got a beer that you won’t soon forget. Rich, satisfying and slightly spicy, our seasonal ale goes perfectly with your favourite dessert or traditional feast. But like fall, Pumpkin Ale comes but once a year!

Beer came in a 650mL bottle. Bottle is dark brown with halloween pumpkin on the front. This is a seasonal beer for Autumn. When poured into a pint glass, Colour is a cloudy amber at a coppery tone. The aroma is of cinnamon, five spice. The taste of pumpkin is mild with strong flavours of spice, cinnamon and hops. Interesting beer that I do recommend you try.

Bottle. Hazy golden-orange pour. Mild malt and hops, with spices and nutmeg that ultimately define the beer. Nothing too extraordinary, but does it’s job fairly well, a nice casual beer. Worked nicely on Thanksgiving too!

Spab (4002) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 2, 2010
650 ml bottle from brewery. Pours a very slightly cloudy orange-gold with modest-sized white head. Aroma has lots of spice, especially nutmeg and allspice, and pumpkin. Taste is similarly full of spices, with a nice pumpkin presence and a little bitterness in the finish. A solid pumpkin beer.

JulienHuxley (5909) - Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 19, 2010
Bottle. Pale orange pour with thin white head. Good spicy aroma, cloves, cinnamon and definite pumpkin aromas. Taste is rather mild, still some candycane, spice and a very earthy kind of bitter finale. Watery mouthfeel.

Dark amber colour with off white head. Aroma is clove and cinnamon. Taste again is heavy cinnamon, clove and spice. Not a bad seasonal.

3.6
SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - JAN 15, 2010
From notes. Amber pour, off white carbonation. Lots of pumpkin with a mild dose of spices- nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice- cereal grains in the background. Very easy to drink. Medium body, balanced. Decent pumpkin ale.
