A: Pours a light copper in color with a transparent body, slight off white head at the top that left some lacing around the glass.

S: The aroma up front is spicy, bread, and nutmeg and some cinnamon coming through as well, lots of stuff going on here not to much balance.

T: Slightly like the nose, more malts than pumpkin flavors, nothing pronounced on the tongue, but not a terrible flavor.
M:Medium mouthful feel, slight carbonation and a slight tingle.

Overall: Simple beer, no crazy flavors coming through, refreshing, not terrible tasting.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle, poured into pint glass

A- pours a crystal clear bright golden color with a one-finger creamy off-white head that retains nicely after the pour, leaving some lacing behind

S- sweet brown sugar aroma up front with notes of wet grain, cinnamon, allspice & nutmeg. Also picking aromas of wet leaves & earth

T- slightly sweet & malty base with notes of caramel, subtle notes of cinnamon and nutmeg kick in, leading to a dry finish with just a hint of cinnamon on the finish

M- medium body & carbonation lead to a big creamy mouthfeel that continues into a crisp finish, high drinkability

O- this drinks more like a pale ale flavored with cinnamon, rather than a pumpkin ale. It does have high drinkability though, but the avid pumpkin fan will be left looking for more flavor

Basically it's ale with a bit of pumpkin and pumpkin spice flavor. I liked that you could still taste the ale, but it wasn't the best tasting of ales. The mouthfeel was light and the carbonation was enjoyable.

Mixed six from ABC. Subtle notes of pumpkin in a very good ale. Blue Point has yet to disappoint.

Got this one for 1.50.

Aroma: Nothing spectacular.

Taste: Tastes like an Oktoberfest with some small amounts of the usual pumpkin flavors. Finishes with bread, a slight zest, and dry.

Overall: Nothing special, but nothing terrible either. To me, it tastes more like an Oktoberfest than a pumpkin ale, but it was cheap and easy to drink. Would not seek out again.
