Beer Review (18): Blue Point Brewing Co. Pumpkin Ale

Blue Point Brewing Co. Pumpkin Ale

Brewery: Blue Point Brewing Company Beer: Pumpkin Ale | Beer Advocate Score: 77 Abv: 6.0%

This dark-amber pumpkin ale spelled fragrant and spicy immediately after cracking it open.  The smell was wondrous and lovely, but the taste...not that memorable.  The spice to pumpkin ratio seemed lacking and the body felt weak and boring.  Not one of my favorite pumpkin beers this season, but not one to skip altogether.  The complexity of the spice notes got me through the brew, but in the event I had the option to go for round two, I most likely would've picked something else.

Looking for more Pumpkin beers?

More to come...


  1. I haven't tried any pumpkin beers before but I'd love to

  2. I've not tried any pumpkin beers either, come to think of it I've never seen any over here. Even though the review isn't some favorable I'm going to look for some this weekend.

  3. Wow, I'm surprised to hear that from both of you. During the Fall season there's usually 2-3 pumpkin beers on tap at a time at the bar. Pumpkin beer is everywhere! Let me know what you find!

  4. You guys just do seasonal things better over there, we don't really put effort in. It's just like at Christmas, it's much grander in America. Still not found any.

    Cycling mittens? Not heard of them.
