Blue Point Brewing Co. – Pumpkin Ale (2014)

NicAA: Tea colored with a watery head. Pumpkin, ginger and cinnamon nose, biscuity malt. Slightly weird broccoli note. 7/10

NicTM: Thin, moderate carbonation, very light. Slight bitter hops, sweet pumpkin, then artificial spice, like a big red. 6/10

NicP: The best part of this fairly thin beer is the pumpkin, which does taste sweet, good quality and plentiful. 4p

NicO: Another in the not-bad-not-great category. I won’t remember this next year. Or after my next beer. The Bill Pullman of pumpkin beer. 69/100

AlexAA: clear amber pour w/ quickly fading lacing, a dollop of cinnamon fleshes out lightly for a very subtle aroma. 6/10

AlexTM: Barebones light body made up of brown sugar floating minimal quantities of cinnamon, nutmeg and pumpkin. 6/10

AlexP: It’s like these pumpkins thought they were going to miss the train, so they showed up unglammed up and w/ wet hair. 4P

AlexO: With nothing to hide behind, a small dose of pumpkins, light spicing, and a biscuity malt just can’t sustain a thicker body, or interest for that matter. 63/100
