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. It’s 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!

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.

Looked almost exactly like the Octoberfest, a nice orange. Good pumpkin spice aroma. Very strong pumpkin spice taste. Highly recommended if you are a fan of pumpkin pie.

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. Wasn’t lacking in flavor as I expected. Body could have been a bit meatier but over decent.

"pretty much what was expected for the style. nice mix of cinnamon, clove ginger, and pumpkin on the nose. the ginger was a nice touch. "honey roasted pumpkin"...maybe that was it...this one was good, slightly better than the average pumpkin beer"

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.

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.

Good solid brew with obvious flavors and smells of herbs and spices. I have had other pumpkin ales before and I think this is the best of all the ones that I have had. Light orange color with tastes of spiced pumpkin and cinnamon. Good solid beer. A definate try if you can.
