Pumpkin Ale - Blue Point Brewing Co. (Patchogue, NY) - ABV 5.5 %

Aroma is faint and consists of a bit of cinnamon and a little banana. The taste is pretty basic, a little cinnamon, slight pumpkin and once again a faint banana hiding in the background. This brew is ok but nothing to write home about.

RATING 7.8 out of 10

Welcome! Mr. Beerjangle is a site that is rooted in Craft Beer and everything surrounding it. We not only strive to entertain you, but also to provide information and fun reading to anyone interested in the craft beer world. However this is not just another beer site because not only will we review craft beers but we will also discuss the culture that surrounds it. Everyone involved with this site is not only a big fan of craft beer but we are also fans of music, cinema, art and pretty much anything that kicks ass. Today craft beer drinkers are more of a community. We appreciate the time, energy and detail that brewers put into every brew and craft beer appreciation isn't just a guy thing, many women are choosing a craft beer over a glass of wine and this trend seems to be growing. We will talk about where to find a great brewery or an interesting place where you can get a craft beer and listen to a live band. In other words we don't want to put ourselves into a box, this site will always be evolving and anyone who visits our site will have a chance to voice their opinion and throw in their two cents (as long as your point of view does not conflict with us "experts").....just kidding, seriously feel free voice your opinion. We will also be giving you the 411 on all types of beer related events such as festivals etc...so pour yourself a cold one (or a room temperature one) and join the party.

Pumpkin Ale - Wild Onion Brewing (Lake Barrington, IL) - ABV 5.4%

Poured from a can this beer pours a slightly hazy medium amber shade with a decent head. The aroma is what you would expect with cinnamon and pumpkin leading the way followed by nutmeg and clove. The taste follows the nose with cinnamon and pumpkin followed the usual fall spices. This brew tastes like so many other pumpkin ales, big on the spices, light on he mouthfeel not much malt and ends very dry and slightly bitter. Maybe it's my problem for expecting more from this beer. It's not that it's bad but also not exceptional. On a positive note I do like the vintage style halloween artwork on the can.

Johnny Rails - Pumpkin Ale - Erie Brewing Co. (Erie, PA) - ABV 6.5%

Poured from a bottle this ale pours a light amber with a fair head. The aroma is of cinnamon up front with pumpkin and a bit of nutmeg, the aroma is decent but that's about the best part. The taste is mostly cinnamon with nutmeg and a bit of pumpkin. This beer is a bit thin and watery, there's a faint sweetness but not much and it reminds me of cinnamon flavored gum, it's not the worst pumpkin ale I've ever had but certainly not the best.

Imperial Pumpkin - Imperial Pumpkin Ale - Long Trail Brewing - ABV 8%

Pours a deep copper with a larger than normal head for a pumpkin ale, head retention was ok and left behind good lacing. The aroma is big on the pumpkin followed by some cinnamon and other fall spices . The taste is pretty close to the aroma, pumpkin is up front with the fall spices following. The sweetness level is medium but there is a bitter and boozy finish . All in all this festive brew is pretty decent tasting and is a steal for the price point ( I purchased a bomber for 5.99 ) with 8 % ABV , enough said.  RATING 7.8 out of 10
