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.

One of my favorite beers of the Autumn season, pours a nice amber color and has some nice scents and taste of pumpkin and small amounts of spice.

This isn’t a bad beer, though not my particular cup of tea. Slightly sweet, never cloying, the pumpkin spice certainly shines. If you like fruit beers and the like, this is worthwhile (although Dogfish Head makes a superior version.)

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2011
On tap at the brewery, served in a tasting glass. Pours clear reddish amber with a tall, dense tan head. The head remains and leaves a moderate amount of fine lace. On the nose, there are notes of pumpkin, nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon and caramel malts. The flavour is moderately sweet, rounded out with pumpkin and delicate spice carried over from the nose. The finish is long, with roasted malts, pumpkin and just a touch of smoke. On the palate, it is medium in body with a smooth, milky texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a surprisingly nice pumpkin ale. 2011-11-25

This is a solid pumpkin beer, there is a mild spice in the aroma, and at first taste there is a very mild spice. As the beer warms the spice becomes more aggressive so that by the end of the beer it is very noticable but not overwhelming. I really liked the subtle progression.

DarkSong (322) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - NOV 28, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours reddish amber with a small light tan head. It has the aroma of caramel, pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon and bread. It has a nice pumpkin flavor and also tastes like nutmeg,cinnamon, caramel, a little bread and has a nice toffee aftertaste. It doesn’t have that pumpkin pie spice taste that a lot of pumpkin beers have, it has more of a pumpkin bread taste. I enjoyed this beer I hope we get to drink it again next fall.

All very subtle and not overpowering in abundance. Palate is sweet crystal malt aftertaste. Another excellent brew from the master brewers at sam adams.A++
