this was some good shit, my sister actually liked this and she does not like beer at all. very nice spicy aroma of all the things that make a pumpkin pie great. the body was full and malty, with lots of spices in it and a slight sweetness. excellent fall beer.

Sampled in NYC Times Square. A pretty good little brew. Easy drinking, quality malts.

Tried this in New York. A bit sticky sweet and spicy with a light spicy finish. Lightly bitter from hop. Decent.

Jimmack ’07. This poured with a brown body and small head. Nose was pumpkin and spice. Tasted spices and a bit off. Generally I dont like pumpkin ales for this reason. Thanks for sharing.

POurs deep copper/amber with a thin head. Notes of dense pumpkin and cloves. The palate boasts the clove more heavily than the other pieces of the pie. A finish with deep malt that lingers.

This was much better than expected. I was not a huge fan of some other pumpkin ales I have tried, but this one hit the spot. It was a nice orange-tan color with a hint of white head. Malty, nutmeg, cinnamon, pumpkin (obviously). Thin and clean finish, easy to drink, smooth going down.

A nice job with the pumpkin and spices. Not over the top, drinkable. Nice Autumn color.

Sampled on tap at the brewery on 51st Street. The aroma was nice, but too faint. I did pick out a lot of spices, like cinnamon, and there was a good brown sugar type pumpkin smell. Appearance was perfect for this type of beer: a rusty-orange color that was not completely clear and had a big, creamy, off-white head. The flavor was good and full of pumpkin, cinnamon, honey, and spicey flavors. It did well on the palate as it was delightfully creamy and had an active, fizzy carbonation. A bit dry at the end, but very smooth and silky. Overall it was a good seasonal brew, and well done, but not in the top tier of its style.

Enjoyed the pumpkin-ness of this one, very much present but not overpowering. Gave it a nice pumpkin flavor but not too pumpkin pie-ish

Looks like I’m the first one to rate the 2004 batch. Tasted at times very much like the meat of the pumpkin, as it would be in a pie. Light creamy taste at times. Very light spices. An intimately drinkable beer, but more can be done to innovate for a spicy fall pumpkin beer. Great name and logo though.
