2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
BEcause of the plethora of pumpkin beers I’ve had this fall, I’m going to stick my nose up at this one. Everything about this beer passed the pumpkin ale test, but it failed to amaze me. My wife digs the pumpkin beer so we both has this a few times on our visits to New York. Cloudy reddish amber colour. Meidum whitehead. Some initial clove, pumpkin and allspice on the nose . Taste was soft with the spices, not as much as i expected and was hoping for. Decent fruit and breadiness on the palate. But overall, just another passable pumpking brew.

Draught. Hazy pale yellow with medium sized off-white foamy head, faint berry aroma, high carbonation, slightly sweet fruity taste, medium finish. Quite refreshing, very much champagne-like.

Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Sweet and fruity aroma with notes of ginger. The flavor has ginger up front with a general berry sweetness. Pretty good.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Definite berries on the nose. Very sweet. The appearnce is a pale orange color, fizzy white head (like champagne). The flavor is strong berries, and a wheaty sort of spicyness. The finish is spicy, and a little sour (again like champagne). Not especially enjoyable, but not bad.

2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap. Empire State. Disappointing. Not much fruit. You kind of have to like really fizzy, pink lager to enjoy this one.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap, empire state building. Bought this one for my wife and snuck a few sips. Name is very accurate- tastes like champagne and aroma is of berries. Pours a very generic golden color, moderate head. Taste was almost too sweet, and palate was very shallow. Not bad, but definitely more of a ladies’ beer.
