Blue Point Pumpkin Ale - Blue Point Brewing Company. Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, this beer's head is two fingers thick and off-white, with lateral lacing, and a clear deep amber body.


Smells like a fair share of nutmeg and clove. Nothing overpowering though.

I taste pretty much the same components described above, but with the addition of a malty backbone. This makes for a really good balance.

Mouthfeel here is clean and smooth.

Overall, I'll give Blue Point Pumpkin Ale - Blue Point Brewing Company a 4.25. I might get this again, who knows?

Actually have it labeled as 5.5%, not 6%.

The good: has a light-bodied flavor, some crispness if you're looking for a light beer.

The bad: flavor is extremely underwhelming-- almost like a lager. Or a beer diluted with a lager...and club soda.

Either this batch was mislabeled, or you should definitely pass on this if you're looking for some more full-bodied flavor profiles.

Blue Point Pumpkin Ale brewed by Blue Point Brewing Company, with an ABV of 6.0% This brew pours out a deep amber color with a small white head. The smell of this pumpkin brew is pumpkin, spices, grains and malts. There is a lot of spice in the smell of this brew. To me it is a cross between Ginger bread and pumpkin pie. Not saying that is a bad thing. Now for the taste, it bold with flavor. You pick up on the grains and malts in this brew. There is also a nice pumpkin spice at the end of this brew. Blue Point Pumpkin Ale, has a nice balance to it, there is nothing overpowering about this brew. You really can't pick up on the 6.0% ABV of this brew. This brew has just enough pumpkin and spice with all great things of brew to make a nice drinking pumpkin ale. The mouth feel of Blue Point Pumpkin Ale is bold, rich and refreshing. Overall I'm giving Blue Point Pumpkin Ale a 4.25 out of 5. I would buy this brew again. Blue Point Brewing Company, did a nice job with this one.

12 oz 2015 bottle with a bottling date stamp of July 2015, served in a Belgian snifter.

Copper body with excellent clarity but a weak head. Minimal lacing.

More spicing in the flavor than I get in the aroma, and probably a touch more than optimal.

Mouthfeel: medium carbonation and body.

O: Pleasant aroma with less impressive flavor.

Very creamy taste like pumpkin pie. Didn't think I would enjoy this brew as much as I did, also considering the heavy cinnamon notes and I am not a big fan of cinnamon, but this beer was delightful.

A fairly pedestrian - underwhelming offering from Blue Point, that aside from perhaps a faint upfront cinnamon or apple note, doesn't really suggest anything regarding an autumnal or speciality beer. Presents decently in the glass, with a translucent light copper colored body and white head. Nothing very distinguishable in the nose or taste. Meh....could have a bottle of this with pizza or the like. Not much to see here.
