Tasted On: 10-20-2012
Freshness: Best by 4th week of 12-2012
Packaging: 12 oz. brown bottle, pry-cap
Glassware: Blackstone shaker pint
Purchased: 6-pack from Frugal MacDoogal, Nashville

Appearance: Clear and bright copper-colored beer, with a nice sized off-white head. Both lacing and retention are good.

Smell: Pleasant sweetness of pumpkin fruit and pumpkin pie spices.

Taste: Bready malts with sweet pumpkin pie favors. Rounded out by spices and a slight earthy bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Crisp and moderately carbonated. Aftertastes are of pumpkin and spices, with a light sweetness.

Overall: Very delightful pumpkin ale from local brewer Blackstone! Reminds me of a lower gravity version of the Schlafly pumpkin.

The Orange and brown pumpkin colors really shine through as this Crystal clear ale is topped with a light layer of tightly knit foam.

The aromas are heavy on the cinnamon, with a light pumpkin spice and nutmeg.

The flavor is more to the pumpkin spice, lightly topped with cinnamon and nutmeg. There's very little malt or pumpkin flavor but it's spicy enough that it's good.

The feel is so light and almost lacking in carbonation, that it feels like water. Light on the tongue and slips down the palate with utter ease.

A new offering from Blackstone. Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a tulip glass.

Light orange and amber in color; clear with a thin head. No lacing, head recedes quickly. Mild scents of pumpkin pie, cinnamon, various spices. Good flavor, a nice mix of pumpkin and spice with neither particularly overbearing. Slightly sour with mild hop bitterness. Light and thin, medium carbonation, very drinkable. Overall another nice beer from Blackstone. Everyone is doing pumpkin ales now so there are alot of bad examples of the style out there; this isn't one.

Appearance--Pour is a lovely orange color with very little head retention and only small amounts of cloudiness.

Smell--All spices on the nose. Little pumpkin, just spices.

Taste --Complex, starting off with a hint of pumpkin, diving into the cloves and nutmeg, and then finishing with a touch of hops that unfortunately comes across as soapy about halfway through and leaves a strange aftertaste.

Mouthfeel--More carbonated than I thought it would be based on the appearance. Not sure, again, if that works here, especially with pumpkin.

Overall--It's all right, but once you taste them the soap notes really diminish the rest of the palate here. A pity, since this is otherwise an excellent pumpkin ale.
