Dark amber pour. There’s a thin, clinging white head topping it off. Wonderful aroma of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and other spices. Smooth, sliky, and easy drinking. The flavor is pumpkin pie. Sweet and spicy. One of the finest pumpkin beers.

On tap at O’Pub. Pours a clear copper color with a fair head. Aroma of pumpkin, spice with hint of cinnamon. Taste of pumpkin, cinnamon, bit of nutmeg and other spices. Mild bitterness and a sweet finish. Moderate body, smooth with a pumpkin pie feel. Not too bad.

Sampled from a can. Orange colour with a white head. Taste is very sweet indeed, with lots of pumpkin flavour and a ton of cinnamon. Some cloves also. OK if you love pumpkin pie, I guess. Not for me, I’m afraid.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a murky orange with a small white head. The aroma matches a pumpkin pie! The taste is pure pumpkin and spice goodness. One of the best pumpkin ales I have had.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy copper color. About one finger head. Slight lacing.
Aroma is like a candle. Artificial cloying pumpkin pie. Some spices, but less than many pumpkin offerings. It masks everything else.
Taste is the same. Artificial pumpkin pie. Pretty decent crust flavor. Its creamy and rich.
Mouthfeel is medium. Its creamy and thick. A lot like eating a pie. Only slight bitterness on the finish.
Overall this is okay. I guess I recommend it. I mean it tastes great, but artificial only takes you so far.
