2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Neighbor bought a case of Blue Point Pumpkin strictly based on the fact it was twenty bucks cheaper than a case of DFH Punk’in. I respect his choice especially when the other beer in the cooler is Miller Lite. Blue Point Pumpkin is a light bodied amber beer with pumpkin pie flavor. Nothing over the top, I thought its drinkable but not remarkable.

Bottle at Lovin Cup RIT Alumn beer tasting event. Clear orange pour with a thin tan head. Pumpkin and spice aroma with a mild cinnamon hint afterwords. Flavor starts off with a pumpkin pie hint with some mild spices. Much milder than the next pumpkin ale I’ll be rating.

Bottle from craft beer outlet. Aroma is of pumpkin pie and some spices, but it seems to be lost in the taste. Also a little watery. Good though.

2.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a slight hazy bronze color with a very small off white head.
Aroma is a decent dose of nutmeg, clove, cinnamon and various pumpkin spices.
Taste however, is a bit odd. Not really picking up too many of the flavors i sensed in the aroma. It’s a bit watery and any flavor just kinda gets lost in the mix. Nothing really exciting.
Not much to be said about the palate. A little rough on the palate, watery. Odd aftertaste. Didn’t really enjoy this pumpkin ale

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear amber with a thick lt tan head...lively...decent lacing and retention. aroma has roasty malt, some spices, and a hint of pumpkin. Flavor is mostly spicey and a bit muddled...a bit of earthiness at the end. Mouthfeel is a bit thin...almost watery and the finish is spicy and a bit dry.

On tap at Good Beer NYC. An amber/orange coloured pour with a small white head on top. Aroma of pumpkin and spice. Tastes of pumpkin, spice, caramel, slight sweetness. OK for a pumpkin beer but give me the Southern Tier any day.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tallahassee, Fl - Publix Supermarket - Lake Ella - 12 oz bottle. Medium copper pour, sparkling, off-white bubbly head that leaves a brief trace of lace. Aroma is spicy-sweet with with some light potpourri accents. Flavor sweet, just enough spiciness, some nutmeg, pumpkin pie spice, a bit of molasses. Not as overbearing as some pumpkin ales. Mouthfeel is thick enough.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
A promising pour of amber liquid with a tidy head that leaves some decent lacing. The aroma is lightly spiced. The taste is mild and slightly sweet. It’s not a malty sweet though. It seems like the malt is complemented by the spices. It’s not too pronounced. This beer finishes clean and refreshing.
