Well the name is cool!!! I tried this one 3 or 4 different times, a couple each time. I really tried to like it. I just couldn't get a taste for it. I'd name 5 other pumpkin ales which I like better.

Second half of the mill st fall sampler. Served from a 355ml bottle into a guinness pint glass.

A- A foggy dark amber with minimal head and not much lace. Some streams of bubbles.

S- Strong wiffs of cinnamon and nutmeg. A touch of sweetness. The aroma is a mix of pumpkin pie and freshly baked banana bread.

T- The spices aren't as noticeable in the palate as they are in the nose. More pumpkin and a light dusting of hops. Hint of vanilla. Slight grassiness with a somewhat astringent and metallic feel.

M- Medium bodied with almost over carbonated IMO.

D- Drinkability is ok but not quite what im looking for in a pumpkin ale.

Overall nothing to special here. Im going to try a bottle at a warmer temperature to see if this sways my final review.

On-tap at the brewpub. Pours a thick looking orange, unfortunate that it was so freezing cold. The aroma is a bit of C-hop, but mostly ginger to me. Average mouthfeel, and above-average carbonation. Not as good when it warmed, a bit of pumpkin, corriander and a tad of white pepper, nutmeg. Not that drinkable. So-so for its style.

330ml bottle, served in tulip

A - Red-Orange with thin, quickly dissipating head. Some streams of carbonation.

S - Pumpkin, cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon

T - A little bread, pumpkin, vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves. Off-puting astringent aftertaste.

M - Good body, but could use a little more carbonation

O - Not bad. Probably wouldn't have again. Waiting for Howe Sound to come in stock. Typical Mill Street - good, not great.

355 ml bottle from Harvest sampler 6 pack at LCBO.
Label says Wheat Beer flavoured with pumpkin...

Pours a dark orangey copper with a finger of light beige head that holds with decent retention. Nose is spices, clove, yeast/dialectal, pumpkin mash, some cinnamon, bit of malt body. Taste is malty to begin, some wheat, grain and then pumpkin puree into the finish, with a hint of some spice on the tongue. A bit of a thin body on the mouthfeel, seems a bit watery/carbonated.

Overall it exceeded my expectations. Decent enough, though still middle of the road, transition beer I suppose. Sort of how I perceive Mill St, attracts new people to the potential of flavour and craft beer.

Copper,off-white head. No lacings.

Very light pumpkin on the nose. Slight sweetness and generic spice.

Light caramel malt up front. Actually pretty nice pumpkin flavor through the middle. Light spice, I mostly get cinnamon, maybe vanilla, not really strong enough to tell.

Body is nice enough, maybe a touch light, but not bad.

Surprisingly tasty. One of the more drinkable pumpkin ales I've had.

Pours a dark, clear copper with a spotty patch of foam on top. It quickly recedes to a ring and leaves moderate lacing behind. The aroma is of nutmeg, cloves, all spice, cinnamon and other spices. The taste is very spice heavy as the nose would have you expect. Some cardomon also shows up in the taste. As doesn a pleasant, but restrained caramel malt character. The mouthfeel is quite light and softly carbonated. The finish is nutmeg and other pumpkin pie spices.

A decent Pumpkin Beer, but a little to spice heavy for my tastes.
