trapped (757) - New York City, TURKEY - JAN 17, 2014
Drought. Hazy dark yellow with creamy beige head, cinnamon aroma, spicy taste, medium carbonation, longish finish. You can actually taste the pumpkin pie if you close you eyes! Nice brew.

beerbill (3378) - Laurel, New York, USA - NOV 26, 2013
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.

GL2814 (361) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 13, 2013
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jow (2094) - New York, USA - OCT 6, 2012
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

DruncanVeasey (7157) - NUNEATON, Top 23, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2012
’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.

ben4321 (3864) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 15, 2011
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
Overall Impression: 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.

blipp (6072) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - OCT 22, 2011
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.

jtclockwork (8249) - , New Jersey, USA - OCT 20, 2011
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.
