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.

Poured into a pint glass. Nice hazy burnt orange color with a generous white head. Aroma full of pumpkin spice, nutmeg and cinnamon. Taste was similar, but not cloyingly sweet like some styles.Flavors were balanced. Nice dry finish. Overall a very good pumpkin ale.

L- Amber/orange. Very cloudy, cannot see through.
S- lots of festive spices.
T- Nutmeg and pumpkin. Tastes like fall in your mouth. The best thing is that the pumpkin flavor is not obnoxiously overpowering.
F- Good mouthfeel. Not too heavy, very drinkable.
O- Finally! A pumpkin beer I can enjoy! The pumpkin isn't too much. Beer is sweet but not as much as other pumpkin beers. Again props to Blackstone.

Aroma is fairly grainy until the nutmeg and clove kick in, giving a perception of sweetness.

Flavor is slightly sweet throughout, with an upfront squash and nutmeg character that fades to a lightly tangy note and clove in the finish.
