2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Growler filled at Shoreline Beverage and consumed later on the same day. Pours a hazy golden orange with a thin linen white head that is quickly gone and leaves no lace. Pleasant aroma of pumpkin along with cinnamon and nutmeg. The flavor begins with pumpkin but lacks any sweetness at all. In fact, it dries out rather quickly and truncates the flavor. The spices are present but muted. It ends up tasty weak and watery with a dry unsatisfying finish. Not a fan.

A very average pumpkin beer, the flavors were muted and bland, with only some of the spices sneaking in. The aroma was nice, but not really worth the money.

A solid beer with just a nice amount of pumpkin pie finish. Pretty light beer with good color and a small whitish head.

Tap at the Gingerman. The tap was disturbed and the brew looked like a coffee milkshake but great thanksgiving dessert aromas. Tastes of pumpkin pie including the crust really good. Also get nutmeg, brown sugar, earth, and vanilla but guess that’s more pie flavors. Good stuff

’Pumpkin Pie’, 7.1% according to my notes- presumably this. Tap at the brewery, 17/12/11. Hefe-like haze with a slim fine slick. Alluringly mulled aroma and taste lilke Anna’s swedish biscuits; cinnamon and ginger, finely sieved. No beery notes. Buttered corn on cob. Unashamedly spicy, and why not? Pick of a poor bunch.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Location: Draft at Ginger Man, 11/12/11
Aroma: The nose is super cinnamony and sweet, an aroma of the season, with pumpkin pie spices
Appearance: This one pours into the glass an orangish color with a nice white head atop it
Flavor: The taste is unsurprisingly rather sweet and dessert like, balanced a touch by the spice hop
Palate: The body of this brew is fairly light, with a smooth mouthfeel and a really nice drinkability
This is a super sweet, but still rather tasty offering, in my opinion. Sure, it is kind of a novelty, but a novelty I enjoyed. I enjoyed it enough that I got 2 in a row, which is something I almost never do a place with the quantity of offerings of a Ginger Man. I’ll freely admit to being a sucker for this one.

Draft. Pours orange with a white head. Smells like pie crust and nutmeg. The flavor has pumpkin pie spices, nutmeg, and some sweetness. Good stuff.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft. Pours light orange. White head. Nose is great pie crust, fresh pumpkin pie and light spice. Taste is strong upfront and then drops out in the body, which is on the light side. Enjoyable sessionable pumpkin ale.

On tap. Interesting beer. Aromas of cinnamon, and citrus. Taste is sweet and sour, with average length. Palate is oily, with a thin-to-medium body. Yellow, cloudy, with a frothy head.

On tap at brasserie julien on the upper east side. Pour is like a fluffy hefeweizen. Taste is lemon, squash, allspice, pumpkin. Would say more like yam then pumpkin. Light and fluffy like a wit. Really nice offering from Chelsea, not watery or boring like other brews I’ve had from them. Nice lacing.
