2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at La Cage aux Sports Laurier. A clear, yellow to orange pale amber with a short lasting white head. Smell is very spicy, cloves and cinnamon. Taste is tons of cloves, tons of cinnamon, some caramel. Finish is light herbal bitterness. Slightly overbearing spices make the finish seem too weak. Light to medium body, very bubbly mouthfeel. A somewhat unbalanced lager that could have been much better, had the spices in it been counterbalanced by...something else.
Poured an average size fizzy head, but goes away too soon. Has a light orange colour. Weak lacing. Mild carbonation. Aromas of pumpkin spice, nutmeg, mild cinnamon. Has a spicy pumpkin flavour to it, with much of the aromas accounting for taste as well. Tingling aftertaste and a good mouthfeel. Recently tried lukewarm from bottle as well and it was equally drinkable, kinda weird but still good (as opposed to warm swill). Pretty good. MunBro (942) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 18, 2014
Rating based on old notes. Decent autumn beer even if a bit unimaginative. Flavors are not distinct, just tastses like Rickards with some autumn themed spices tossed in at random. YanIpa (144) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 3, 2014
Une bière orangée. Fruités sur des malts doux dominés par un mélange d’épices d’automne de canelle, clou de girofle, curcuma.. Des saveurs ordinaires et chimiques. Sucré, malté. Un retour fruité. Une finale assez mauvaise signée Molson avec ses notes amères neutres. robinvboyer (4740) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 19, 2014
On tap at the moose in North Bay
Clear amber pour, very small beige head. Aroma of subtle spices, slme nutmeg, and some caramels, no hops. Light mouth feel, soft carb. Finish is medicinal, spicy, and a little flowery. The spices taste cheap, and borderlkne artificial, some slight bready malts, with more caramel, and a appleish finish. TheJester (2542) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2013
473 mL can. Nice looking beer. The spicing is good - not too overpowering. And there is some honey or something sweet in there that fills out the body a bit, but the underlying beer is too thin to hold up to the spicing. Nice to see Molson-Rickards doing some different things, though.

Hazy gold with light off white head. Aroma has light spice hints with hints of citrus. Written on the can it says "cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves" these just seem to meld all together and I cannot pick out distinct flavours. Flavours are equally as melded together. Palate is decent but over all just a medium beer. Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - NOV 11, 2013
Clear golden pour. Thin white lace. Spicy, clove aroma. Sweet spicy malt nutmeg flavour. Bitter finish. cubs (10693) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 5, 2013
Big fucken canned @ home, courtesy of GodoftheMolsonCellar. Cheers! Pours a touch hazy golden orange appearance with a disappearing cream colored head. Spicy fucken spicy, nutmeg, vanilla, cinnamon aroma that really smells about like every pumpkin beer on the market. A bit thin and watery with some caramel but really just tastes like drinking a glass of water filled with 3 tbsp of cinnamon. Get buzzed quick! probstblueribbon (3791) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 25, 2013
473 mL can from LCBO served cool in a tulip glass. Clear deep golden with a full, off-white head. Lots of warm baking/pie spices, caramel/toffee notes, pumpkin pie lager. Medium-ish body, soft, full effervescence. Plenty of pumpkin pie spices, enough caramel and toffee malt support, clean; dry with limited bitterness and a pumpkin pie spice finish. No flaws, not for me. shorlin (721) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - OCT 23, 2013
Pours up the picture of decent commercial lager, frothy white head that dies quickly, darker than Canadian in colour, but not much. Aroma is pure spice, nutmeg and cloves. Taste is sweet with more spice. The cinnamon I couldn’t find in the aroma is there is the taste. Finish is boring. The spice stays on your lips but the finish is generic lager.
