A very good pumpkin ale. This one is all about the pumpkin. Pumpkin through and through. Mediim body. The spices are very light and the pumpkin shines. I’d like to see a double version of this.

Great??? I must be missing something cause there is nothing "great" about this beer. It has a nice copper pour with a good white head that leaves solid lacing. The aroma is faint at best but at least there’s some hint of pumpkin in there. The taste is fairly well balanced but just really lacking in flavor & complexity. I was expecting so much more especially at $8.

I work a few blocks away from the brewpub, but we really only go there for after-work things in the fall. This beer is the reason why. A Kendall Square tradition. It pours a fitting hazy orange, and has a fairly meh aroma, bits of spice here and there. Very tasty in spite of this, sweet with lots of spice and some gourdiness to it. On tap from the brewpub, drank alongside a year-old barrel aged version. The fresh stuff is a bit better.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle. Labeled 4.4%. Mostly clear orange color. Thin, sort of bubbly off-white head. No lace sticks. Lighter body. Smooth, lighter kind of soft, crisp carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Good hearty pumpkin aroma, light on the spice. Light hop. Light to moderate bitter taste, not as sweet as expected, more of a dry taste. Very solid light pumpkin ale, one of the best I’ve tried at the sub-6% level. A session pumpkin ale that
I can handle, not too sweet at all (drank the whole bottle myself without issue). I normally only really enjoy stronger pumpkin beers, but this one managed to satisfy! Very well-balanced and authentic-tasting.

Really nice autumn seasonal. Dark amber with a nice white head. Great balance of pumpkin, slight spice and solid ale character.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz bottle. Batch 03, Sept 2012. Pours a hazy orange, reminescent of an actual pumpkin, with a 1/2" of creamy off white head. Real pumpkin aroma with complimentary spice scents which do not attempt to dominate. Taste is ever so slightly sweet. More pumpkin balanced nicely with light spice and a bit of hoppiness. Easy to drink and smooth. Spices linger on the tongue. Nicely done.
