bulldogops (2490) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 17, 2013
On tap at the Beer Revolution in #yeg. 5%. Clear copper-amber pour,with a decent off white head. Aroma is potent, quite a bit of clove and allspice, and a touch of fleshy pumpkin Taste is heavy on natural pumpkin flavour, but a little weak in malt composition. Not the best pumpkin out there, but a sessionable fall brew.

A nice mild spiced ale with a hint of pumpkin and vegetable flavour. The pour is a dark amber with a beige head. Not the best pumpkin brew, but its okay

DuffMan (10070) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 25, 2013
Draft sample @ Edmonton Craft Beer Festival. Medium copper colour, very spicy nose, heaps of nutmeg in particular. Spice-dominated palate, a tad thin in the malt department. Just okay.

BeerandBlues2 (12839) - Escondido, California, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Tap at Calgary Beer Fest. Pours clear dark brown with mahogany highlights and a small, fizzy white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, pumpkin, dates, and cookie malt. Flavor is spice dominant, supporting malt, no hops or bitterness and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

gramity (1634) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 15, 2013
Rusty orange with a thing white head. The aroma is all spices with cloves dominating the more appealing cinnamon. The proper food analogy would be if you shaving cinnamon onto a pile of cloves and then put a dollop of pumpkin paste on top. In other words, there is not enough pumpkin! A bit of a mess. It isn’t terrible but I feel it the balance could use some attention.

andrewturba (1190) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 22, 2013
Pours a clear dark copper/brown colour with a couple fingers of head that quickly dissolves into a thin ring around the glass. Aromas of spice(lots of cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon) overall a more aromatic pumpkin pie. Flavour is spicy, clove, nutmeg, cinnamon, sweetness, overall taste is a spicy pumpkin pie filling. For a pumpkin beer its one of the better ones.

Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 22, 2013
Poured from a growler acquired from the brewery. Pours a clear brown color witha small brown frothy head that dissipates into nothing. Aroma of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and pumpkin. Taste is cinnamon, nutmeg, and pumpkin pie filling. Definitely an artificial pumpkin taste as it’s made with pumpkin pie filling but the spices make this beer interesting. Lots of spices liven up this beer and make it worthy, interesting that its a year round pumpkin beer as well.

reebtogi (6145) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 4, 2013
Poured into glass from a 64oz growler a pale amber color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves no lacing behind. Aroma is pumpkin with the usual cinnamon and cloves that accompany this style of beer. Taste is dominated by the cinnamon and cloves with only a bit of pumpkin fruitiness and some bitterness. A decent pumpkin brew, but nothing really stands out.

On tap at Underground. Dark orange pour, thin white cap. Big spicy nose, cloves and cinnamon. Taste has big spice notes - cinnamon and cloves, not much pumpkin. Body is light, tight carbonation. Ok.
