BEcause of the plethora of pumpkin beers Iíve had this fall, Iím 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.

sample: definitely better than anticipated, thought this would have been lifeless. The brewís got all the usual pumpkin pie ingredients in taste and nose. The body is very thin while making it very drinkable, for this style particularly weak.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught at blind tiger in NYC. Copper pour with a thin off white head with little lacing. Aromas of Cotten candy and clove. A nutty taste up front quickly gives way to cloves and nutmeg. There is a persistent underlying pumpkinness, but itís more old pumpkin pie than fresh pumpkin. The beer has a somewhat unpleasent lingering bitterness.

UPDATED: SEP 27, 2009 Seen ads for this sucker all over the city on phone booths and such. The guy with 2 teeth freaks me out. Tried on tap at empire state location. Pour is a copper amberish with some collective white head atop. Decent amounts of nutmeg and cinnamon spice. Wasnít lacking in flavor as I expected. Body could have been a bit meatier but over decent.
