Draft at Coles. Pours orange with an off white head. Light pumpkiny sweet aroma with floral hops. The flavor is more hop forward than the aroma, with both floral and citric notes and a light sweetness. Pretty good. mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 8, 2010

Draught at Coles, Buffalo, NY. Pours a nice deep amber with a small diminishing white head. Aroma’s nice and hoppy, citrusy with lots of hops. Flavour of spices and hops along with sweet malt, some pumpkin there but not much, mostly in the finish -- very tasty. Medium bodied. Somewhat unique, I really liked it.

On tap @ Coles, Buffalo NY. Pours a light to medium orange / yellow. Medium hop aroma. Taste is initial medium bitterness up front, sweet malts, mild bitter/vegtal finish. Very drinkable & seems like a session beer. not too much if any of the pumpkin spice, since this is a blend of pre spiced Pumpking HogTownHarry (6872) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 27, 2009
Draught. At Cole’s, Buffalo, NY. Clear copper pour, average frothy head - nice colour, really. Mild aroma (a tad cold) - C-hops, sweet, moderate alcohol, lightly spicy - only vaguely like the Pumking, has quite a bit more of the ST IPA character - sweet and somewhat pungently hoppy. Taste is mildly roasty, some alcohol (not too much), dry resin and spice bitterness, just a touch catty - and just a hint of the pumpkin in the linger (more as it warmed up). Nice solid body to it, decently carbonated, with a tingly, somewhat spicy crisp finish. Very drinkable indeed - but not much pumpkin there. ** update - had another glass about 2 weeks later - same deal: spicy, a little sweet, crips and only a little pumpkin pie zspice. zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - OCT 17, 2009
(draft @ Cole’s - Buffalo, NY) Clear gold color with a fizzy white head. Aroma is lots of citrus and hops with a light sweetness. Not much pumpkin present and definitely no spice. Flavor is hoppy and citrusy with a lot of floral and resiny notes. A very small sweetness at the finish and a lingering bitter aftertaste. garthicus (2929) - Dublin, IRELAND - SEP 29, 2009
On tap at Coles. Appearance: dark amber, small frothy white head. Aroma: hop crazy, pineapple, spice, fruity and ever so slightly earthy. No pumpkin evident so far. Flavour: nice pineapple hops, malt, floral, pepper, tiny pumpkin notes with long bitter hop finish with cinnamon. Delicious.
