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.

DrinkEmUpJones (1069) - Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2012
The color is clear reddish orange. Spicy aroma with apple notes along with fall spices. The palate is a little light with a slight fake pumpkin feel. OK but not as great as other pumpkin beers.

Quite simple its not better than harpoonís pumpkin. The taste is there but the aftertaste its bland and bitter... The malt overpowers the pumpkin taste

jnkor (326) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 27, 2012
Aroma full of nutmeg and cinnamon. Light white head in top of an orange color, looks a little watery. Flavor is full of the spices, and the carbonation is a good complement to the lack of thickness. Spicy, yet light and refreshing.

beerscout (298) - New Windsor, New York, USA - AUG 27, 2012
Bottle. Clear amber color with thick off white head. Nose was bready and vegetable. Flavor was pumpkin/veggie, with some nutmeg and bread, with a wheaty finish.

ChainGangGuy (4531) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 27, 2012
12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours out a clear, orange-copper body with a couple inches worth of foaming, near white head. Little splotches of lacing on the way down.

Smell: Moderate aroma of toasted pumpkin meats (and cautiously toasted malts) overlayed with spicy notes of cinnamon and nutmeg.

Taste: Very little pumpkin flavor carrying over to the final flavor (not that it was simply oozing out in the nose). Lightly toasty malts, some powdered sugar embellishments. Scant estery hints. Cinnamon powder and a little early nutmeg. Sweetish, spicy through to the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation.

Overall: An acceptable, middle-of-the-road pumpkin ale thatís not particularly memorable.

Aurelius (4655) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 18, 2012
OK, this is going back to back with Harpoon UFO Pumpkin. The Blue Point goes first. Bad label, good cap, clear rusty orange brew with a filmy white head. Spicy, perfumy, sweaty aroma (sort of like nuzzling the Cinnabon cook) -- allspice/nutmeg, light vinegar. Peppery, spicy presentation, mostly dry/faintly sweet. Dry toast/cereal malting. I didnít get the pumpkin, but I got all the stuff around the pumpkin when itís in a pumpkin pie - spice, vanilla, even the crust. Faint diacetyl vapors here and there, muted cinnamon in the finish. Medium body. I have to admit, I hate pumpkin beer season -- the local beer purveyor gets new beers in which Iím obliged to rate, but I just donít like pumpkin beer for the most part. This was pretty good, and didnít have the squashy/gourdy thing going on. Market Square Liquors, Timberlane.

Fratto (2835) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAY 17, 2012
Bottle from Cavie. Dark amber pour with a small off-white head. Aroma is cinnamon, more spice, and pumpkin. Taste is pretty malty, pumpkin spice, and a little caramel.

Drake (10510) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAR 1, 2012
12 ounce bottle. Pours a crystal clear amber color with a large fizzy off-white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of pumpkin spice, pumpkin and a malty finish. The taste is slightly tart pumpkins, a significant dose of spice and a mild hop finish. Medium bodied, well balanced.
