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.

12oz bottle: This one pours a crystal clear amber color. There was a bit of an off-white head that didn’t linger too long or leave much lacing. Nose is OK: just a bit of pumpkin pie spices, malts in the background. Taste is a little thin. Some malts, some spices, but not too much of either. Pretty nondescript. OK, but not one of their better offerings. There are much better pumpkin beers out there.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: 1/2 inch head, orange-brown in color, clear, high carbonation

Smell: pumpkin pie filling, cinnamon, and clove

Taste: pumpkin pie filling, cinnamon, toasted malt, slight bittering earth, and clove

Mouthfeel: sweet with slight bitterness in the background, high carbonation, light bodied

Overall: This is what I think of when I think of average pumpkin beer. It meets all of the basic requirements of a pumpkin beer. I could throw back several and it is pleasant to drink. That said, it really does not stand out in any way. I may pick this one up again or could just choose a more local favorite.
