3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Craft Beer Market in Calgary. Fairly small sample from the beer flight. Had a small white head and the aroma was a touch sweet with some pumpkin and cinnamon. The taste, surprisingly, was fairly low in pumpkin with a solid malt backbone. Iíd like to try it again but a full glass.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: clear medium amber with one finger of fluffy ivory head, good retention and patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: sweet pumpkin pie, floral, grassy. (6/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, low bitter. (6/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, sweet malty and spicy finish. (3/5)
Yes, I know, another pumpkin beer. You take what you can get up here in the frozen north, OK? And supporting the local guys is important to me. On to the beer! Iíve had worse pumpkin beers, and Iíve had better. This isnít subtle, by any means, and plays more as canned pumpkin pie filling than real pumpkin. Too sweet for my preference, but thatís offset somewhat by the emphatic spices. Iím intrigued by the suggestion that this gets served with whipped cream and nutmeg, and I think Iíd enjoy trying that - but as it stands, itís not very exciting. (12/20)

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Served on tap at Hop In Brew. Called the brewery for more information and was told that in the "Big City" they call it a pumpkin pie in a glass and serve it with a shot of 7-Up for sweetness, a dollop of whip cream and sprinkle of nutmeg. This was not done with the pint I had. No head. Aroma of pumpkin and cinnamon. Flavour was at first a shock. After that the malt held up. Flavour was similar to the aroma but with a strong hint of peppermint in the finish.
