650 ml bottle poured into a mug. Nice label art. A light colored golden amber (think ginger ale) with a notably frothy pillow-like two fingers of white head. Lightly spiced sweet aroma. Nutmeg, ginger root, and allspice dance in and out. Not particularly pungent. Rather delicate. Again recalls gingered soda. Aroma develops nicely as the beer warms.

Taste does not really remind me of pumpkin pie, like so many of this brew's contemporaries. More of a "spice style" than a "pie style" pumpkin ale but quite smooth, drinkable, thin-bodied, and mellow. There's a cinnamon heart note in the background from start to finish. More ginger up front. The malts recall caramel corn and sugar cookies. A deeper gingerbread-like flavor note does develop late. Give this one some time to develop on the palate. The spices take a while to gather steam and meld with the malt sweetness. Very gentle carbonation. Slight grassy tea-like hops. Finish is curiously dry and even a little chalky.

If I have a major concern here its with the mouthfeel. Too thin if the goal is to convey a classic pumpkin ale gestalt although the flavors do save the day to some extent. Ginger and cinnamon > cloves and nutmeg. With a glut of pumpkin ales from Canadian craft brewers every fall, it is good that folks are playing some different riffs.

Yay, pumpkin ale time!

This one's lighter in colour than some I've seen. Light copper. Visible carbonation.

Smells lightly of spice and... sugar? There's definitely some sweetness going on.

Taste is nothing special. I'm not picking up a lot of spice or pumpkin. Fairly sweet, with a weird aftertaste I'm not a fan of.

Feel is smooth. Could be more crisp.

Phillips Brewing 'Crooked Tooth' @ 5.0% served from a 650 ml bottle purchased for $6

A-pour is a pale gold from the bottle to a rich amber/orange in the glass with a small off white head leaving a streaky lace along the pint

S-smells more of cooked pumpkin's than pumpkin pie , butt there is a lot of cinnamon thru-out

T-crisp and clean , smooth going down , especially after trying Crooked'er Tooth

MF-ok carbonation , mellow medium body

Ov-ok beer , good Pumpkin Ale , probally Victoria's favourite local Pumpkin Ale , sell's out quickly
