COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A perennial favorite at our Brewery Halloween party, this reddish amber ale is perfect for fall. Real pumpkin adds a full body and sweetness, while deep roasted malts lend a toasty finish to this subtly spiced brew.

Drank from a twelve ounce bottle. Not a huge fan of Samuel Adams and found this beer very average in every aspect of beer ratings.

raymow (846) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 6, 2014
bottled - a decent pumpkin ale. Nothing special (but I’m also not a big pumpkin beer guy). Definitely drinkable though.

Berard (338) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 5, 2014
Bottle. Pours deep red with a thin white head that dissipates quickly. Mild hop aroma with nearly no aroma. A wheat like spicy flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cakes (379) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 3, 2014
12 oz. bottle The deep roasted malts lend a toasty finish that is augmented with some spices. A slightly above average offering.

igneous1 (1503) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - NOV 2, 2014
12 oz bottle. brownish/amber color, clear. head is minimal and beige. aroma is more pumpkin and much less spice than I anticipated. flavor is a little more allspice and a nice pumpkin balance. pleasantly surprised with this as this style is typically way overspiced for my taste.

rjplumer (453) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 31, 2014
A bubbly rich amber red body. Smooth nutmeg and pumpkin aroma that isn’t overwhelming but yet enticing. Has a touch of roasted malt on the nose too. The nutmeg and pumpkin are noticeable to the taste. Has a crisp apple like character also. Smoothness from start to finish as it leaves your palate clean and wet without any negative aftertaste. First "pumpkin beer" to actually impress me. Rather than slamming you pumpkin spice it is subtle and respectful to your sense. Well done.

cleverlobo (318) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Bottle; red-brown with moderate beige head; aroma- nutmeg, bread; taste-mild sweetness and bitterness, vegetables, slight smokiness, moderate carbonation. Decent. Needs more hops.

Beachmaster (172) - Oklahoma, USA - OCT 25, 2014
12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a clear dark amber, with a small beige head that quickly fades. No appreciable lacing. Nose is pumpkin spice, and the taste follows the nose. Pleasant enough as a change of pace, but nothing special.

TheHopster (832) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - OCT 23, 2014
(Bottle). Pours a deep orange-brown complexion with thick tan head. Aroma is bready with yeast and natural pumpkin. Unfortunately appearance and aroma are its best attributes. The flavor is vegetable and spices with a bitter aftertaste. Thin palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
