cards04 (2766) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 5, 2012
Pours a dark amber with creamy white head. Some faint pumpkin pie aromas...cinnamon and cloves....thats about it. Tastes more like an oktoberfest/marzen....malty up front hoppy finish....not much of a pumpkin beer though.

patricks110 (2468) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 14, 2011
Im really impressed by this one. The pour is a dark murky brown with light copper tones at the bottom. A nose of huge squash and pumpkin with medium allspice and cinnamon. The middle is of brown sugar with toffee, breaded malts and an impending pumpkin vegetable taste. The pumpkin is huge and heavy with a spiced finish. No alcohol, but a slightly overbearing spiced pumpkin finish, but still tasty. Overall, fantastic brew with impressive malty balance with the pumpkin.

piscator34 (2408) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 23, 2012
Bottled sample. Dark orange in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of nutmeg, sourish pumpkin, and pale mats. Surprisingly, pale and toasted malts lead the way in the mouth backed by notes of pumpkin, brown sugar, some woody/spicy heat, and a hint of vanilla. Medium bodied. Disjoint, but more or less ok.

Lagerboy (2136) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 23, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2012 Dark copper, frothy tan head. Spicey, yeasty pumpkin nose. Strong bitter pumpkin and spice taste. Chunky. Medium to full bodied, a stronger offering than the other seasonals. Short bitter finish. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

UXO (1826) - CANADA - OCT 30, 2015
Appearance: clear deep amber, one fat finger of rocky ivory head diminishing rapidly to a thin cap, moderate lacing. (3/5) Aroma: citrus, pine, pale and caramel malts, faint vegetal pumpkin and spices, nutty, grassy and earthy. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderately strong bitter. (7/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry building bitter finish. (4/5) Much more of an IPA than a pumpkin beer - lots of citrus and piney hops, with only faint vegetal pumpkin and spices in the background. I probably like this more than a lot of pumpkin beers for that very reason, but if the point is a pumpkin beer, its kind of missing that boat. Im going to split the difference there, and grade this as a fairly unremarkable IPA. (And seriously? Am I rating the same beer as everybody else on ratebeer? People are going on about the pumpkin and spices, but for me theyre way, way back in the cheap seats. And pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, and all that jazz generally dont fade as fast as hops do, so Im confused. Oh, well - normal state of being for me, I guess.) (13/20) Edit: This cant be the same beer. ABV and IBU are completely different (6.5% and 65! IBU, compared with 7.1% and 19), and the malts are as well (Pale, Chocolate, Crystal, Light Munich, Dark Munich).

One of the better ones in its genre... actually the first Ive had that Id try again! I wont though since Im a ticker through-and-through for the moment.

Nice combination of sweet and bitter, with the pumpkin adding to the former, but not in an artificial way. I can even taste the hops.

A pumpkin beer where the vegetable somehow actually adds to the balance instead of taking away from it. Apparently quite hard to do, so good job on that. :D

andrewturba (1190) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 25, 2012
Pours a hazy dark copper colour with big white head slowly dissipating to a big white ring with spots covering the beer and a bit of lace up the glass. Aromas of nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves and caramel. Flavours are a caramel maltiness, some hop bitterness, cloves, nutmeg, booze and little cinnamon, nuttiness slight pumpkin touch.

sulawang (1144) - - APR 10, 2012
pours translucent bottle brown, minimal head, ringed retention, minimal lacing, slow as molasses moving CO2 streams. Some malt on the nose, not much else. 7/10-level sweetness med-heavy malts up front, brown sugar, cinnamon, pumpkin, very creamy silky mouthfeel, finishes just a tad watery and thin. A soft mellow lingering bitter finish. Medium complexity, medium depth, good transitions, decent carry, pretty good drinkability.

Powertrip (1000) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 23, 2012
Single bottle purchased from a BC Signature Liquor Store in Abbotsford, BC on 10/22/2012. Colour: Dark brown with hints of orange, and slightly cloudy with no head. Nose: A dusty yeast, A sweet caramelized pumpkin note, a hint of maple. Taste: Medium sweet, medium-light bitter, medium sour. Somewhat sweet but quite delicate and soft. Spice does slightly emerge late with a fading vegetable bitterness. Quite, quite enjoyable.
