Notes / Commercial Description:
Formerly Blue Point Pumpkin Ale

Our golden orange-colored Pumpkin Ale is brewed with pumpkin and spices to produce a delicious taste of fall. This mild ale has little bitterness and a malty backbone. The spicy characteristics take the lead in this roasty beer and its tremendous depth of character will keep you warm during the fall season.

Poured a dark copper hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured moderate caramel, spice and a bit of rindiness.

The taste consisted of a smooth crystal malt with moderate spice and a residual pumpkin flesh.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style.

Overall a tasty pumpkin ale.

It is that time of year again, and I chase the seasonal pumpkin beer. This one is respectable, but not outstanding. Spicy smell...pie spice,neither some pumpkin scents as well. There is a little malt underneath, but the spice is dominant. The taste is semi-sweet. It has a medium heft, with a lingering pumpkin finish. Some vegetal favors. Solid, but not as intense as I'd prefer.

Pours a dark amber with a thin white head. Doesn't have too much aroma. A bit of pumpkin spice: ginger, allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon. Tastes dry and spicy. Not a lot of malt backbone, but a little toastiness. Finishes bone dry with spice notes and a mild bitterness.

Overall, an easy drinking pumpkin beer that's heavy on the spice and finishes bone dry. Nothing spectacular, but easy drinking.
