Draft. Pours light orange. White head. Nose is great pie crust, fresh pumpkin pie and light spice. Taste is strong upfront and then drops out in the body, which is on the light side. Enjoyable sessionable pumpkin ale. Dogbrick (13010) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 22, 2016
Sample at GABF 10/08/2016, thanks to my sis for assistance with note-taking. Hazy dark golden color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Stringy lace. Cinnamon, malt and caramel aroma. Light-bodied with flavors of pumpkin pie spice and malt. The finish is sweet with a malt and cinnamon aftertaste. Decent overall. j12601 (11780) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - OCT 31, 2010
On tap at Gingerman prior to going to Joe’s going away party. Pours a hazed almost milky hef looking color with a thin white head. Loads of cinnamon, light nutmeg, pie crust. Nice aromas overall. Thinner, no that’s not really right as it was more medium bodied, just emptier than expected. All of those lovely spices on nose and really nothing going on flavorwise. Somewhat bland, light spice on the finish. blipp (9268) - La Mesa, California, USA - OCT 22, 2011
Draft. Pours orange with a white head. Smells like pie crust and nutmeg. The flavor has pumpkin pie spices, nutmeg, and some sweetness. Good stuff. DruncanVeasey (8226) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2012
’Pumpkin Pie’, 7.1% according to my notes- presumably this. Tap at the brewery, 17/12/11. Hefe-like haze with a slim fine slick. Alluringly mulled aroma and taste lilke Anna’s swedish biscuits; cinnamon and ginger, finely sieved. No beery notes. Buttered corn on cob. Unashamedly spicy, and why not? Pick of a poor bunch.

Aroma: The nose is super cinnamony and sweet, an aroma of the season, with pumpkin pie spices
Appearance: This one pours into the glass an orangish color with a nice white head atop it
Flavor: The taste is unsurprisingly rather sweet and dessert like, balanced a touch by the spice hop
Palate: The body of this brew is fairly light, with a smooth mouthfeel and a really nice drinkability
This is a super sweet, but still rather tasty offering, in my opinion. Sure, it is kind of a novelty, but a novelty I enjoyed. I enjoyed it enough that I got 2 in a row, which is something I almost never do a place with the quantity of offerings of a Ginger Man. I’ll freely admit to being a sucker for this one.
Draft. Pours an orange copper body with a mostly white head. Nicely spiced, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and a hint of squash. Nice caramel and malty body with a spicy finish. Nice pumpkin ale. Jow (3923) - New York, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Tap at the Gingerman. The tap was disturbed and the brew looked like a coffee milkshake but great thanksgiving dessert aromas. Tastes of pumpkin pie including the crust really good. Also get nutmeg, brown sugar, earth, and vanilla but guess that’s more pie flavors. Good stuff beerbill (3618) - Laurel, New York, USA - NOV 26, 2013
Growler filled at Shoreline Beverage and consumed later on the same day. Pours a hazy golden orange with a thin linen white head that is quickly gone and leaves no lace. Pleasant aroma of pumpkin along with cinnamon and nutmeg. The flavor begins with pumpkin but lacks any sweetness at all. In fact, it dries out rather quickly and truncates the flavor. The spices are present but muted. It ends up tasty weak and watery with a dry unsatisfying finish. Not a fan.
