Aroma is caramel, orange, and ginger. Appearance is reddish/brown with good carbonation. Taste is low hops with medium malt, caramel, pumpkin, ginger, orange. 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++

(bottle - 12 oz) Clear orange pour with a fizzy white head. Sweet and spicy pumpkin and cinnamon note at the start. Flavor is a nice and subtle pumpkin pie and spice combination with a very nice malty and spicy sweetness at the finish. Smooth sweet. Smoother than the Double Pumpkin.

Great beer. One of the few Pumpkin beers I have had that actually tastes better chilled. Reminds me of a good pumpkin bread, but not to heavy. Can pair well with lots of food because it doesn’t linger.

Bottle. Pours a clear copper color with little to no head. Nice, light pumpkin aroma with some different spices. Sweet, pumpkin taste. Light malt as well. Pretty decent, but it’s so sweet you can’t have more then one or two.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. The pour was a clear dark amber with a reddish hue and had an average sized (1-2 finger) creamy off white head which produced some good lacing.
The aroma was moderately strong of a toasted bread malt and a sweet doughy yeast with notes of brown sugar, allspice, nutmeg and pumpkin.
The taste was a nice malty sweet with a nice note of brown sugar and allspice from the onset and finished about the same with a hint of nutmeg and a nice dose of pumpkin at the end. The flavor lingered for a descent amount of time allowing for the spices to settle nicely on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was just a tad under medium in body and quite creamy yet a little dry in texture with a nice forceful carbonation.
Overall a flavorful Pumpkin Ale with just the right amount of spices blended together for a nice tasty experience.

Dark amber body. Creamy offwhite head. Initially, the pumkin spices were lightly noticed. Caramel and roasted became the dominate flavors. Light but nice firm body. Would like to enjoy again.
