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 youve got a beer that you wont 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!

Alpha10 (707) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 9, 2013
2013/09/09 - Pours a translucent, burnt orange colour with a frothy, off white head that lingers and laces nicely. Aroma is caramel, corn, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and pumpkin. Taste is caramel malts up front with a pumpkin spiced, slightly bitter aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium, oily, with medium carbonation and a drying finish. An ok pumpkin. Nothing exceptional. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

650 mL bottle. Pours a light orange with a frothy head. Aroma is mostly nutmeg and pumpkin. Dry and light bodied with medium high carbonation. Seemingly thin with alternating vegetable and spice notes with a rather hoppy finish. Not bad, but not to my taste.

czar (8749) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 3, 2013
pours unclear golden with a nice white head, decent retention and lacing. fruity and almost belgian fruity malts, tender, ripened and juicy gourds and squashes, some oranges, light pine notes, nice blend of spices - carefully selected and thankfully shy, hint of sweetness. average to soft carbonation, light to medium body - oily, nice citrusy, lightly piney finish. probably the most balanced pumpkin ale ive tasted so far. enjoyed it - surprisingly.

reggiedunlop (3698) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Pours a clear orange color with a medium off white head. Aroma has seasonal spices. Flavor has nice layers of spice, doughy malt...graham, and pumpkin...well done! Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is spicy and bitters slightly. Nice pumpkin beer!

yrstruly (333) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2012
Aroma is of pumpkin, cinnamon, ginger and corn (??). The taste is slightly malty, with some squash, a moderate hop finish and thin body. The balance is toward the hops and not really my thing.

Bouteille 750 ml. 5.5%. Couleur ambre assez ple, mousse blanche. Arme de gingembre et pices. En bouche, malt, pices mais moins que certaines bires la citrouille. Muscade, un peu de cannelle. Finale malt et fin dpices. Bel quilibre.

Blonde-ambre, un gnreux col mousseux la surmonte, tout en dcorant le verre dune dentelle tenace. Comme la description le suggre, oui, au nez cest pic, jy perois de la cannelle, de la muscade et du clou de girofle, parsem darmes sucrs. Cest trange en bouche. a gote un genre de ragot. Il y a, cest certain, des saveurs de lgumes, mais aussi dpices, mais pas les mmes que dans les odeurs. Quelque chose qui me rappelle les "chips barbecue" Cest la courge que je gote plus que la citrouille. Mme si cest plutt hors norme, cest buvable. (400-151012)

Bomber from the lcbo in Niagara on the Lake, Americas Hat. Pours a golden amber caped by a silkey off white head with maximum amount or retention. Gobs of bubbling carbonation gives it staying power. Nose has an inviting mix of cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. Taste is a powerful dose of cinnamon upfront followed by nutmeg. The bottles claims are "generous amount of pumpkin." I just dont see any pumpkin at all. Sweetness comes in afterward from pale and caramel malt. Medium body.
