This rich and luscious brew indulges in flavor with over 28Ibs of pumpkin per barrel, for a full bodied sweetness and deep russet color. Classic pumpkin pie spices of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and allspice ignite a warmth and spark that’s deepened by an undercurrent of roasty smoked malts. The result is a delectable brew full of enveloping layers of flavor and spice. At Samuel Adams we love experimenting. This series of limited edition brews represents some of our favorite small batch creations.

The beer pours a dark orange, with a thin tan coloured head. The aroma was pumpkin, spices, and citrus. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, slightly creamy, with average carbonation. The flavour is sweet malt, pumpkin, spices, and a citrusy finish. The alcohol is noticeable, but doesn’t detract.

Since it was an LCBO feature (and therefore good value by price) I bought it despite my ready to give up this style for good. Better drunk cold, when the malt overpowers the spices and is significantly tasting malty. Spices somewhat too much.

22oz bottle - Full of fusel alcohol and light on the pumpkin flavor/aroma. I thought that the Harvest Pumpkin ale was just a few notches better than this. It could have done more with what it was trying to be, and usually Sam Adams delivers a solid product. This was a bit of a swing and miss.

Bottle. Very dark and murky amber/brown pour, with a large beige head. Lots of sweet, bready malts, with some subtle spicing. Not in your face, just enough so you know there are there. The pumpkin is actually there in the flavour, some sweet pumpkin flesh flavours and a spicy finish. I’m impressed, the spicing isn’t over the top and I can actually taste pumpkin. Now yes, it’s a tad boozy, and the finish had a lingering sweetness, but all in all, a nice pumpkin beer.

22 oz bottle. Pours amber with long lasting off-white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of bready malt, grassy hops, pumpkin and spices. Body is full and crisp. Pumpkin, caramel, spices, herbal hops nicely balanced on the palate. Finish is long, semi-sweet and spicy. Delicious brew.

Dark Amber brew that has a malty aroma with a slight alcohol in there. Taste is sweet malt syrup. Very little spice and absolutely no pumpkin. So thick and sweet that it is almost a sink pour but for the price hate to toss it out. After drinking this whole bottle I can say that it is a complete fail. Need a glass of water to wash this thick garbage on down.
