BEER OF THE DAY: Blue Point Brewing Co., Pumpkin Ale, Long Island, NY

I got this from an old intern (and Long Island native). I've never heard of the brewery but it's a pumpkin beer, and it's October, so let's give her a spin.

Look-A deep, clear amber color. Barely any foam.

Smell-A very pleasing sweet malt aroma. Definitely makes me want to dive in. I'm also getting a bit of spice.

Taste-Spice (nutmeg, clove, allspice) on the lips.

Mouth-Medium bodied. The clove comes out more in the swirl along with that sweet malt I was hoping for. Slightly dry finish.

Overall-I'm very pleased with this beer. I love when an unexpected surprise beer pops up. This is a good "harvest" type pumpkin beer, which I tend to enjoy more than straight pumpkin beers. Looking forward to trying another beer from this brewery. 

About Blue Point Brewing Pumpkin Ale:

 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, it’s gone after Thanksgiving.
