Flying Monkeys Craft Brewery – Paranormal Imperial Pumpkin Ale
This rich and mesmerizing brew has distinctive roasted pumpkin aromas with a beautiful orange body that are bolstered by tastes of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and allspice. Think pumpkin pie and a malty incarnation of graham cracker crust.
Great Lakes Brewery – Saison Dupump
This Belgium Saison by Great Lakes Brewery has aromas of earth, spice and pumpkin with nutty and spicy notes underlying. It’s dry and fruity with a cleansing hops bitterness.
Nickelbrook Brewing Co. – Cheeky Bastard Stout
A twist on a traditional English stout, this dark ale is packed with rich chocolate, light roast and sweet maltiness, but it remains incredibly smooth and drinkable. It’s low in ABV (4.5%) but high in deliciousness. Certainly, a cheeky brew that is perfect for enjoying during the fall season.
McAuslan Brewery – St-Ambroise Pumpkin Ale
This magical brew casts a potent smell with its well-crafted blend of blond caramelized malts, gentle hop, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves and pumpkin. It has a hint of sweetness with a malty character that is perfect for anyone looking for an easy-drinking refreshment.
Sawdust City Brewing Co. – Maple Butter Tart Ale
This brew has a deep amber colour with a creamy head. Rich aromas of maple, butter rum pudding, vanilla, and caramel candy lead the way for notes of pie crust, toffee, molasses and chocolate. It has a dry, medium bodied, creamy, well-balanced crisp-hoppy bitterness. Try it for yourself and you will notice tastes of maple, toffee, and malt, along with subtle noted of fruit, amber rum and butter.
