650mL bottle to glass
Pumpkin, nutmeg, mace, wheat, bubble gum and squash. Clear light amber with a Lot of particulates floating around, nice effervescence, and no head. Slightly sour, tinny, pumpkin and a slightly sweet nutmeg finish. Medium bodied, slick and a bit gritty. I really had a hankering for a pumpkin beer, This satisfied that craving but as pumpkin beers go this was pretty mediocre. andrewturba (1190) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 7, 2012
Pours a clear amber with minimal white head but a minimal white cap seems to stick around. Aromas of fresh pumpkin very vegie like, nutmeg and cinnamon. Flavour consists of nutmeg, some subtle pumpkin, some sweetness overall decent balance. gramity (1650) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 29, 2012
Orange/ amber colour, with a tiny head. The aroma was is of fresh pumpkin, but the taste was nicely balanced. As it warms the all spice, nutmeg and some cinnamon notes start to show through. Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 15, 2012
Pours a cloudy light amber color. Lot’s of spices on the nose of cinnamon, pumpkin and nutmeg. All the spices almost gives it a soapy smell though. Taste has a lot of cinnamon and pumpkin in it with a nice clean finish. RumRunner101 (918) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 10, 2012
Pours a light gold with a small amount of white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg. Light bodied. Flavour is yeast, cloves, and subtle pumpkin and spices. I don’t care for the yeast and clove flavour in the body, but the finish nice with a bit of sweetness and lingering spice.

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2014 Une bière légère avec un gôut de citrouille très subtile. Malhereusement c’est un peut creux. Un peu de citrouille et épices mais très légère. WheatKing (1338) - Phnom Penh, CAMBODIA - OCT 3, 2012
This is only my second pumpkin beer; the first was by Lighthouse. Whereas that one was sweet and creamy, like a pie, this one picked up the spices of the pie but otherwise was just pure pumpkin, and was quite light... VBS speaks of a powdery feel picked up in this brewer’s beers and while I agree with him on most of their ales, it’s not present here. Easy drinkin’. LarryBeast (616) - - SEP 29, 2012
650ml bottle. Pours like orange-coloured apple juice with thin, fizzy head. Aroma is pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg with a very thin caramel malt backing. Mildly sweet with subtle spice notes. Flat, light-bodied, thin and a little slick. Mild dessert pastry finish. Didn’t love this at first, but it got much better when it wasn’t straight-from-the-fridge cold. fiulijn (20491) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 8, 2012
Bottle from Comfort Inn Cold Beer and Wine Store, Richmondsulawang (1161) - - MAY 26, 2012
Hazy copper color, beautiful, with small head. Aroma and flavor are mild; thanks to the brewer, it has more character of vegetables, hay and grass and very little from spices
(some dusty cinnamon and light aniseed though); it acquires a light feeling of heather, but overall it’s quite refreshing. Low bitterness.
A correct take at the style.
pours clear orange with a shade of brown, almost zero head, a few slow-moving CO2 streams. Baked pumpkin pie on the nose. Tastes of cinnamon, nutmeg, light caramel up front, tingly-creamy mouthfeel, but body fizzles in the mids to the finish. Finishes watery, malty, and leaves a roughness on the tongue. Medium complexity, medium depth, good transitions, okay carry, good drinkability. A decent pumpkin ale, not the best, but worthy of trying once.
