tmoreau (3474) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - OCT 4, 2015
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 Iíve missed with Point offerings, but this was a successfully balanced & tasty seasonal. Next time on tap at Millerís 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 (2143) - 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

Skyview (5453) - 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.

Copper with a thin white head thatís 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.
