COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Weve carved out a pumpkin Oktoberfest even Ichabod would love. This hearty, malty lager is warmed by the mighty pumpkin and lifted with notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, all-spice and ginger.

mgermani (1002) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - OCT 3, 2012
Pours a crystal clear pale copper with no head to speak of. Curious vegetal nutmeg aroma. Lager/Oktoberfest maltiness at the beginning of the sip opens up into buttery, spicy finish, with just a touch of clean hoppiness at the end. Thin, crisp body and ample carbonation. Its a bit unfair to compare this to the typical caramelly nutmeggy pumpkin ale offerings; from an Oktoberfest perspective this is rather nifty, and blends two autumn beer traditions rather well.

AleRider78 (830) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2016
500ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a fairly large frothy tan head that leaves some sticky lacing behind. Has a golden amber appearance. Excessive carbonation. Aromas of nutmeg, pumpkin spice and toasty malts. Flavours are also of pumpkin spice and nutmeg but also not overly offensive to be overwhelming. Its well balanced. Some notes of various other spices, barley malts and earthy tones. Medium bodied. Slick mouthfeel. Pretty good.

Spab (3560) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 6, 2016
650 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a clear copper colour with modest-sized cream-coloured head. Aroma is vanilla, pumpkin spice, toast and caramel. Flavour is cinammon, nutmeg, toast, caramel and a bit of pumpkin. Nice.

Sample at Mlcc. Sweet malty aroma. A touch of pumpkin spice in the aroma. Acceptable but nothing interesting.

Subliminal64 (121) - London, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 30, 2016
Wow, this is the first pumpkin beer that was really good! Smells like pumpkin pie, spices and malts. Pours a copper clear with head that disappears quickly. Taste is like it smells. Not overpowering, but pumpkin is present. Good carbonation. Mild aftertaste. Overall I was happy and would purchase again. MB The Beer Bear-on

Canmoore (436) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 23, 2016
Pours a clear amber with very little head. Aroma has notes of pumpkin pie, some bready malts. Tasting notes include more pumpkin pie, lots of spices, herbal dry finish.

Pours a copper colour. Pumpkin and spice in the aroma. Sweet malty flavours. Decent but nothing too special

Alpha10 (678) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 17, 2016
2016/10/17 - Pours a clear medium amber colour with a large, frothy, off white head that quickly reduces and leaves minimal, patchy lacing. Aroma is biscuity/bready malt, pumpkin, spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, all spice), ginger and light hints of vanilla and toffee. Smells like pumpkin pie with vanilla ice cream. Taste is lightly toasted biscuit malt, vanilla, ginger, pumpkin pie spices and light vegetal notes. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy with smooth carbonation and a lightly dry finish. I actually liked this beer more than I had anticipated. Great mouthfeel and use of ginger. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

robinvboyer (4307) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 14, 2016
Faint Aroma of spice, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Some nice bready malts, subtle pie crust. Good mouth feel, soft carb. Spices come through large in the finish. Medium bitterness, strong cinnamon, and cardamon, and sweet doughy bread.

Metalchopz (3196) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 12, 2016
Pours a clean deep amber colour with a warm beige head and nice lacing. Vienna and Munich malts for aromas with toasted grains, some rusty notes that are less pleasant and hints of spices. The spices show up more in the taste. Toasted malts with cinnamon and nutmeg. Not much pumpkin is showing as beer is filtered intensively. A good idea to mix an Oktobefest and a pumpkin ale. Just lacking the vegetable.

Pours dark orange gold with a small white pillow. Aroma is cinnamon, nutmeg and all spice although quite subtle. Taste is a nice malty base with some light cinnamon, nutmeg and all spice. Better on the scale of pumpkin beers.
