On tap at times square November 2005. Poured semi-clear amber coloring with a mix of spice and hops in the aroma. Taste was very light at first. Then a small bite of bitterness, followed by an some pumpkin. Aftertatse was almost like orange spice with some other spice coming in, the ginger I guess. A decent beer. The batch I had didn’t have a "lingering pumpkin finish" more of a hint of a one, and overall it was mostly light with some spice underneath.

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 don’t 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.

On tap at Empire State Building. Orange color. Sure there is fruitiness, but they have also used the whole spice rack, which is too much for me. I will never be a strong pumpkin ale fan!

Draft. Pours golden orange with a thin head. Sweet malty aroma with nutmeg and other spices. The flavor has nutmeg, ginger, and a light sweetness. Average.

sample: definitely better than anticipated, thought this would have been lifeless. The brew’s 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.

BEcause of the plethora of pumpkin beers I’ve had this fall, I’m 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.

Well balanced pumpkin beer. Just enough spices to let you know they are there. Multiple drink ability qualified. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Brewtopia 11/12/05 Deep golden in color with a small white head. Aroma is all spice-cinamon,ginger, with no real pumpkin charcater in either the aroma or flavor. Another example of a spiced beer, where’s the pumpkin?

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.
