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, it’s gone after Thanksgiving.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a mostly clear orange gold with a thin-moderate linen white head that disappeared by the second sip and left very little lace. Aroma is weak pumpkin along with some muted pumpkin pie spice. The flavor is pumpkin along with some vegetable and pumpkin pie spice. Mild-moderate bitterness at the finish. Mediocre.

on tap- an amber body with a thin white head that had nice retention, and no real lacing. Aroma was had a great caramel malt presence and some mild spice notes. Spice notes were a little more noticeable in the flavor when the hops came through. Lovely balanced between hops, caramel malts and spices. Spices needed a little more assertiveness. A nice crisp finish.

On tap at Birdsall. Pours a clear orange gold with a medium sized white head. Nice pumpkin pie aromas, pie crust. Thin to medium bodied, sweet and creamy. Spice and pumpkin, but not huge and overbearing. Nice crisp finish with some light grain and spice notes.

A new beer from Blue Point to go with their Octoberfest for the Autumn season. Currently on tap at the brewery and will probably be hitting a few growler fill stations soon. Pours a rather surprising dark copper with minimal head. Aroma is mildly of toast and pumpkin. Flavor is rotten pumpkin with a little bit of spice.

A big complaint that many people have about pumpkin beers is that they either taste like rotting vegetables or entirely of cinnamon spices. Having previously enjoyed the Blueberry on multiple occasions I was really looking forward to this as being a better pumpkin beer that would espouse the pumpkin pie flavor. Unfortunately, it didn’t quite achieve that balance of spice and pumpkin and slipped a bit towards the vegetable side. However, unlike the Brickhouse and so many other brewpubs, they didn’t feel the need to add a fake pumpkin spice syrup or flavored salt/sugar to it. For that, I gave them an extra ’Palate’ point as I strongly dislike it when brewers fail to let their beers stand on their own.
