On tap at the location near Times Square. Dark copper pour, good thick white lacing. Aroma is slighlty phenolic and medicinal - mellows out to a ripening vegetable scent. Flavor has some Christmas spice, a bit of caramel, finishes with a sweet cinammon candy like flurry. Decently thick mouthfeel.

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!

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

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.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - SEP 15, 2007
Union Sq. Poured a clear orange copper color with a small off-white head. The aroma was of diacetyl soaked pumpkin. Light seasonal spice. The spices stood out more in the flavor then the diacetyl. Spicey almost tart finish.
