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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5077) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2011
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a medium caramel color with a huge foamy orange-cream head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was dryish and dusty with fairly strong cinnamon and nutmeg. The flavor was dryish and bitter with a strong cinnamon and nutmeg presence but little else of note. Medium length dry and spicy finish. Medium body. Ok.

Capa (2031) - Manama, BAHRAIN - OCT 6, 2011
Copper with a white head. Vegetal pumpking and light malt in the aroma. Medium body. Flavor is similar to aroma. The vegetal bit throws me off. Easy going but kinda boring.

jtclockwork (8897) - , New Jersey, USA - OCT 5, 2011
Bottle. Pours clear amber with white head. Nose/taste of pumpkin, all spice and nutmeg. Taste is slightly metallic with a dry pumpkin spice finish. Lightish body.

Not too bad of a pumpkin ale. Flavors of spice and pumpkin are there, but not overwhelming or artificial. A slightly malty flavor beneath.

BeerViking (2685) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2011
Lots of pumpkin pie on the nose, plus a hint of nutmeg. More on the palate, but now balanced with malt and peppery hop. Dry bitter finish with pumpkin returning. A lot better than I expected - very nice for a veg/herb beer.

thebusstop (178) - Rochester, New York, USA - OCT 2, 2011
I donít know why the ratings have been so low. I thought this was one of the best pumpkin ales Iíve had. The aroma, taste and palate all substantial and well crafted. This was not a simple, gratuitously sweet pumpkin flavored ale. The nose is rich with spices and, most impressive, the palate is rich and bold.

freekyp (1537) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - OCT 2, 2011
Lightly spiced with an aroma of sugary malt, Blue Pointís seasonal pours a clear light brown with a small bubbly white head. Medium bodied with an active carbonation, it ends with a slightly metallic overtone and dry cinnamon spice. Decent but not a top tier pumpkin entry.

dimenhetfield (2487) - , Florida, USA - SEP 30, 2011
12oz bottle poured into snifter. Not really a lot going on here. Very subtle hints of pumpkin/spice in the aroma and flavor. Sort of a middle of the road pumpkin beer.

Pour is a light gold not much head. Smell is sugary medical cinnamon. Taste is light watery candy allspice cinnamon.

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2012 Smells of spice. Little taste of pumpkin. Needs more to become a good beer just ok right now.
