look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

A: Pours a slightly hazy orange with a finger of cream-colored head that fades into a frothy ring with a little lacing.

S: Pumpkin spices with a bit of squashy pumpkin underneath along with light aromas of caramel and vanilla.

T: Pumpkin spices here as well but with a nice undercurrent of actual pumpkin along with vanilla and caramel malts.

M: Medium body and carbonation, this pumpkin ale just avoids being watery.

O: An enjoyable pumpkin ale, overall. It could use a bit more pumpkin and vanilla presence along with a creamier body, but is still quite nice.

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.
