The beer has the orange appearance of a pumpkin, and itís actually appealing. The aroma is dominated by pumpkin, nutmeg and spice. The flavor is malty. with clear pumkin influence. Slight hop biterness on the finish. One of the better pumpkin ales.

Orange- amber colour. White head. The taste is so heavy on the pumpkin I thought it was an unsweetened pimpkin lambic. I tasted none of the spice thatís supposed to be there, leaving just a flat pumpkin taste. Iíve had water with more complexity.

Light amber color. The aroma has some fruitness, light ginger and some cinnamon. Some good malt taste, some sweetness, light pumpkin, some cinnamon. Pleasant.

Sampler at the Radio City location. Love the artwork they put together for this one. Pours a translucent golden with an average creamy off white lacing head. Aroma of you got it...pumpkin pie. As the description states the standard ginger, cinnamon, allspice thing going on. I did pick up the honey in both the aroma and flavor though which was a twist since most pumpkin ales donít tend to have that touch. Flavor was very up front pumpkin pie spices with a touch of hop bitterness. Decent pumpkin ale...but nothing ground breaking.

GABF 2006. Called Greenpoint Smiling Pumpkin. Orange body. Nose is pumpkin pie, light spices, cinnamon, and a hint of gingerbread. Taste is pretty much the same. Itís like drinking a pumpkin pie. Light spice, cinnamon, some gingery notes, and a touch of nutmeg. Body is light medium with a controlled carbonation feel on the palate. Ends with more pumpkin pie flavors and cotrolled spices. Light gingerbread. Nice stuff!

Draught sampler at Empire State Building location. A lot of people consider pumpkin beers to be little more than a gimmick, and I canít always argue as some of them are pretty awful. But when theyíre on, I really dig íem - and this one is most definately on. Colour is a lovely autumn gold. Aroma holds lots of spice notes - nutmeg, clove, cinnamon - with some sweetness from the honeyed pumpkin. Flavour is like pumpkin pie in liquid form, but thereís also a good beer in there, and the flavours mesh perfectly. Sometimes the spicey sweetness of these beers can get cloying, but this one is well-balanced and refeshing. Very nice stuff.

Clear orange, creamy white head. Nose held notes of warmed pumpkin pie and spicy cinnamon. Good spiced flavor throughout with just a touch of hop bitterness late. Light to medium bodied, light carbonation, spiced bitter finish. Itís decent, but not a standout...

Faint average pumpkin aroma. A solid pumpkin offering. Enough to be noticeable but isnít too much. Not amazing like Elevatorís Pumpkin beer.

On tap at Heartland Brewery, 51rd Street and 6th Avenue, NYC. Clear golden amber ale having small diminishing head. Nice spicy (allspice or nutmeg?) aroma. No discernable carbonation. Medium bodied ale that starts with a slightly sweet malt with notable nutmeg flavor and slight bitterness. Finishes slightly dry with average length light bitterness. A nice drinkable pumpkin beer that will make you smile. Goes well with BBQ ribs.
