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.

Pours an amber brownish, iced teacolor with a thin tan foamy head. Aroma of clove and roasted malt Taste is Clove and Pumpkin. A nice Ale. The Commercial descrption is accurate.

Pours a clear orange/brown with a full antique lace head. Roasted malt and pumpkin pie aroma. Has a dominant flavor of sweet roasted and caramel malt, but also a butteriness and even, I think, some licorice character I wasnít expecting. The pumpkin is not nearly as evident in the taste as in the aroma and there is a vegital element that is a bit off-putting. Seems like a good brown ale with the fall holiday character one would expect, but Iím not overly impressed. Not as balanced as it should be.

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2012 Beautiful color. Light aroma and taste, but very smooth. Great relax beer, but not the king of pumpkin beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great dark amber color. I was expecting more pumpkin. There are better fall offerings out there. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle from assorted 12 pack. Pours a clear orange/copper color with a nice white head. Aroma is pumpkin, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Taste is not quite as nice as the smell but still very good. Flavor is sweet with pumpkins and spice. Very good.

12 oz bottle into a SA perfect pint. About as fresh as it gets...man this is out early. A - Clear and dark brown body with a two finger high light tan head. Decent amount of lacing. S - Typical pumpkin pie aroma. Cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, light pumpkin and a touch of caramel malt. T - Follows the nose. Great spice with a touch of real pumpkin. Lingering malt sweetness. Mouth feel is medium with decent carbonation, works well with the spice. O - A very solid pumpkin ale. Canít beat punkin or pumpking, but its one of my favorite sold in the six pack format. Tasty stuff for sure.

Bottle: amber pour with big head. Aroma is of pumpkin pie with allspice, cinnamon, and pumpkin with some malty toast. Flavor is sweet with malt and caramel, pumpkins and pie spices, along with toasted bread. Good flavor, big malt feel, a bit too sweet but Iíll drink more.

Huhzubendah (3376) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 2, 2012
A: The beer is transparent and dark orange. The glass is entirely full of bubbles. The head is two inches thick and leaves a thick sheet of lacing on the glass. S: Pumpkins, cinnamon, nutmeg, malt. The aroma is well done. I donít detect any artificial additives that so often make this style not enjoyable. T: The best pumpkin ale I have had this year. Spices enhance the beer without being overbearing. The beer is nice and malty with a good balance among the various flavors. M: Medium body with alcohol content hidden well. Nice lingering aftertaste that ties the whole flavor profile together. D: A solid beer and certainly one of the better examples of the style. Unfortunately, the beer is only sold as part of the Samuel Adams Harvest Collection 12 pack. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 11-01-2010

Fall harvest beers are usually my favorite. This one was an excellent pumpkin. Most are too sweet
