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. goldtwins (4319) - 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. Aniela (4215) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 29, 2013

MOre pumpkin than spice in the aroma. Orange in color. Sweet pumpkin flavor with a nice spice finish.

Draught sampler at Empire State Building location. A lot of people consider pumpkin beers to be little more than a gimmick, and I can’t always argue as some of them are pretty awful. But when they’re on, I really dig ’em - and this one is most definately on. Colour is a lovely autumn gold. Aroma holds lots of spice notes - nutmeg, clove, cinnamon - with some sweetness from the honeyed pumpkin. Flavour is like pumpkin pie in liquid form, but there’s also a good beer in there, and the flavours mesh perfectly. Sometimes the spicey sweetness of these beers can get cloying, but this one is well-balanced and refeshing. Very nice stuff. baraciisch (3398) - California, USA - JAN 4, 2011
Cinnamon and spice aroma... Orange in color... Flavor is light and crisp, nice amount of sweetness from the pumpkin, a lot better than most pumpkin ales I’ve had... Pretty solid tgncc (3143) - Bellmore, New York, USA - SEP 8, 2007
The beer has the orange appearance of a pumpkin, and it’s actually appealing. The aroma is dominated by pumpkin, nutmeg and spice. The flavor is malty. with clear pumkin influence. Slight hop biterness on the finish. One of the better pumpkin ales. PilsnerPeter (3049) - Flushing, New York, USA - SEP 27, 2007
Tap at Union Square location: Pours orange/amber with a head that becomes a ring. Sweet aroma, seems buttery, with mild a allspice presence. Mild carbonation. Sweet, buttery malts start off the flavor, followed by a hint of festive spices (nutmeg/allspice). Seems artificial to me. Close to being decent, just gets a bit phony and astringent. austinpowers (2831) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 7, 2003
Imagine the faintest possible pumpkin aroma you could have and still say you're serving a pumpkin ale withouth blushing. Fairly bitter. Faint pumpkin/gourd taste. There may be slight cinnamon notes in here as well.
