Ale brewed with pumpkin and spices. Handcrafed using real pumpkin and savory pumpkin pie spices and hints of all natural cinnamon and nutmeg. Perle hops balance with rich Munich, Roasted, and Caramel malts for the full-bodied taste and exceptional flavor.

UPDATED: NOV 5, 2015 Intrigued by this at the 2015 Lakeshore Beverage Trade Show in Chicago, so I was generously offered a 12 oz. bottle to enjoy once more at home. Poured to a mini Czech-pils glass, showing a clear, coppery amber color, with a frothy, persistent layer of tan head foam, and lacing of clingy ribbons & spots. The nose presented some caramel apple sweetness to start, then a perfumey, expressive, and balanced blend of pie spices, with an additional scent of pumpkin puree. Medium bodied, with decent carbonation, the taste added a bit of estery tanginess, moderate, earthy bitterness, and a touch of alcohol warmth to the finish. Sometimes I’ve missed with Point offerings, but this was a successfully balanced & tasty seasonal. Next time on tap at Miller’s Ale House in Lombard, IL.. Same clear, coppery amber and presentable head & lacing, with an aroma of expressive pie spices highlighting cinnamon & clove, with mellower nutmeg toward the back. Pumpkin was more evident in the taste, along with a medium, earthy bitterness. Same successful outcome.

arkurzynski (1886) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 29, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2015 Pours amber brown. Overwhelming pie spice aroma. Spice blend overpowers the pumpkin flavor a bit. Warmth on the way down. Re-rate: lots of nutmeg. Gingerbread-like flavor, mild fruity pumpkin. Pretty nice. +6

12 oz bottle from Princeton’s. Brownish/copper color, not much head. Spicy pumpkin aroma. Flavor is the same with nutmeg and cinnamon coming through prominently. Smooth sweet finish. Great example of a pumpkin beer.

Mahogany color with a quickly falling medium head. Aroma of nutmeg and cloves. A restrained nutmeg flavor, dash of cinnamon. Very biscuity. Solid malt. Enjoyed it much more than I thought I would.

Skyview (5360) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - DEC 12, 2009
Picked up a four pack at Discount Liquors in Waukesha, WI. Pours a dark copper colored brew with a thin beige head that has some nice lacing. Aroma of mostly nutmeg and clove with a hint of caramel. Taste is medium bodied, a touch spicy with flavors or caramel, nutmeg and white pepper. Finish is semi-sweet, spiced, with a lingering nutmeg and white pepper aftertaste. Very drinkable.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 13, 2009
Copper with a thin white head that’s gone much too soon. Aroma of nutmeg, cinnamon along with sweet and spicy malt. Taste of pumpkin pie with pumpkin, cinnamon and strong nutmeg and some noticeable alcohol to boot. Finishes up dry and very spicy. Decent.

Bottle:   Deep amber, moderate foamy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Nutmeg and allspice on the nose, slight cinnamon and general pumpkin pie filling.   Soft pumpkin pie on the tongue, smidgen of crust and whipped cream.   Seems to be better than most in thats it has a good amount of flavor.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Spicy finish, good malt background, very enjoyable.   Simple, good flavor profile, and very refreshing.   Wishing it were Autumn right now.   Thanks Bob for the bottle!

Hammy78 (903) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 23, 2011
Bottle purchased at Premier Gourmet in Buffalo. Pours a mahogany colour with an off white tan like head. Some minor spots of lacing here and there. Smell is outstandingly of pumpkin and spice and (with the risk of making the joke) everything nice. Some sweet malt and yeast in there as well. Tastes like a spicy pumpkin tart or something. I was surprised that there is no real spicy bite in the mouth feel at all. Pretty damn good.

12oz. Bottle: Aroma of pumpkin, spice, nutmeg, cinnamon, pie crust, and some pumpkin pie. Poured orange in color with a small, off-white head that greatly diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer, as well as around the edges. Clear. Sparkling. Flavor is lightly sweet and slightly bitter. Tastes of pumpkin, spice, and pumpkin pie. Medium body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Lightly sweet, slightly bitter, pumpkin, spice, and pie finish is slightly sticky and slightly dry. 7.5%ABV is completely hidden throughout.
