Purchased at the LCBO for around $4.00 for a 500ml bottle. Served at 4deg C in a draught glass

A- 3- Opened weak. Poured no head at all. Dark amber

S- 2.75- Just crap. WAY too much cinnamon and spice

T- 2.75- Pretty bad here. Almost cough syrup backbone. Overload of cinnamon and spice

M- 2.75- Very weak and watery.

O- 2.82- And this is a GIFT score. Will never try again

Food Pairing

Pours a dark amber colour with a quickly dissipating head.

Smells clearly of pumpkin spice....sweet but not a cloying smell.

The pumpkin spice takes a back seat opening to a nice malty backbone. Not too sweet....very palatable.

Mouthfeel is nice....not too thick or thin.

Overall a very nice offering. I would buy this again.

A: Copper orange with tons of white floating particles within. 2 fingers of creamy off white head, medium low carbonation of large fast rising bubbles.

S: Pumpkin pie spices all the way. Roasted pumpkins, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, a candied quality, really pie forward.

T: Pumpkin pie spices, nutmeg, allspice and cinnamon, little pumpkin quality, light dull bitterness lingers in the finish that is typical to Black Creek Brewery. Not sweet, but dry and bitter.

M: Medium chewy body, medium high carbonation, dry bitter finish.

O: Drove 30 minutes to Cannington from Uxbridge today, June 3rd, 2014 to get this brew as there are only 3 places left at this time that sill have this beer in stock. I had to ask the lady to find it after looking around the beer room. I really like this one. No sweetness, all dry, worth a try.

Served from a 500ml bottle into a Guinness Glass, $3.95 at the LCBO . No dates.

A- Hazy bronze color. ZERO head. A thin line of cream formed during the pour and diminished instantly.

S- As expected the aromas is of pumpkin and spices ( Cinnamon/ nutmeg ) a touch of vanilla and some malt sweetness. Pretty much smells like Pumpkin pie fresh out of the oven.

T- Not impressed. There is flavors of pumpkin and a touch of nice spices but i found there to be a sort of sourness to the beer and there really is little to no malt presence. I found the brew to be all over the place in terms of balance. Not good for a Pumpkin ale.

M- The mouth feel kills this beer. Watery, hollow, no carbonation barely.

D- Drinkability is poor mainly because of the mouthfeel and off flavors .

Overall I am a huge fan of Pumpkin Ales and have tried many, unfortunately this was a big letdown. The appearance was fairly unattractive and the mouthfeel was really below what i would expect that of a pumpkin ale to be. Sorry but i just cant recommend this.
