Just a bit too much pumpkin pie spice for my liking

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.

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.
