COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
According to Linus there are 3 things never to discuss with people: religion, politics, and the Great Pumpkin. Our Pumpkin Ale, on the other hand, has made quite a buzz from New Hampshire down to Florida. Every season has its pleasures. Harvest your own with our Pumpkin Ale and reap all that Autumn has to offer. Brewed with pumpkins from only the most sincere patches, this seasonal brew is golden orange, crisp and delicious, with an innocent hint of cinnamon and nutmeg that articulates our favorite season. Gather with friends and family and enjoy the change of seasons while savoring a pint of Pumpkin Ale. Just like the leaves, itís gone after Thanksgiving.

Amber pour with a tight white head. The nose is quite spicy with a little bit of malt sweetness through the middle. Lots of nutmeg and clove as well as some brown sugar and light crystal malt. Well-attenuated and not at all sticky. I quite like it. Itís like a lighter version of pumking. It has that richness but less of the sweetness or alcohol that that beer does. Itís pretty nice.

A - Nice amber-orange color with a little head and some good lacing. S - The pumpkin spices dominate the aroma, with just a bit of pumpkin smell and some maltiness mixed in. T - Initially very sweet, which is then followed by the pumpkin spices and the pumpkin flavors. The hops and the malt flavors add in to the mix to give the taste some depth. M - Little carbonation, and medium-light bodied. Could have used a bit body to match the flavors. However, the beer still felt crisp. D - Very smooth and very drinkable beer. Very crisp and refreshing.

This was a very average beer. Light in body, flavor, and aroma. A little bit of a let down being as Blue Point has an excellent line of brews. Bottom line...not the best, not even close.

Bottle:   Clear amber, a little fiery, a little copper, large pillowy white head, nice lacing.   Huge cinnamon and nutmeg aroma.   Yeah, this one is really spicy on the nose.   Strong assertive nutmeg and cinnamon on the tongue.   Glad its spicy, flavorful, but seems a little one side with only those two spices.   Decent malt base, body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Its as if it should be an Imperial Pumpkin Ale but it is missing the alcohol.   It somewhat comes across as a strong spiced candle in its aroma.   Needs more pumpkin, but certainly has flavor.   Thanks to Brooha for the bottles!
