a: hazy, dark mahogany cold with a lot of floties and a nice ruby red note. thin, 1 finger off-white head

s: pumpkin and squash. brown sugar, caramel, nutmeg, clove, cinnamon, and a nice bready note. very nice aroma

t: pumpkin, cinnamon, light caramel, and a big nutmeg spice. a bit thin on the taste, given the aroma

m: lighter side of medium mouthfeel, with high carbonation

o: nice aroma, but the flavor is a bit of a let down, it's not bad it's just a bit thin

Served on tap in a conical pint glass at Legends in New Suffolk, NY.
A: Pours a crystal clear, dark copper color with a one quarter inch, wheat colored head, not terribly impressive retention, but rings and rings of lacing.
S: Aromas of cinnamon and pumpkin predominate, but malts in the caramel, maybe more molasses range also detectable.
T: Flavors largely follow the aroma picture, but cardamom also evident, with cinnamon blending seemlessly with the bitter at end. Somewhat earthy overall.
M: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Chunky and chewy on the palate.
O: Not usually a big fan of Pumpkin beers, but this is flavorful without the pumpkin and cinnamon being overpowering. Blue Point really got this style about right (one man's opinion).

The aroma in this ale is absolutely amazing, I can just stick my nose in this pint glass for hours without getting sick of that aroma. It is a little watery, but there is a decent amount of pumpkin coming out on the taste. The spiced are somewhat subdued in this ale compared to other pumpkin ales that I have had. I can see myself knocking back a few of these easily. This is one of the better Blue Point beers that i have had lately. Cheers! B

Really interesting beer almost ginger in taste. Looks really good but has a bud beer type feel. Overall nice taste and feel; not to sweet.

Pours a clear, copper color. 2/3 inch head of an off-white color. Good retention and decent lacing. Smells of pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, hint of all spice, and sweet malt. Fits the style of a Pumpkin Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, pale malt, hint of hops, hint of all spice, and sweet malt. Overall, decent appearance, aroma, body, and blend.
